The Ring of Kerry is a wonder to behold – but not for the faint of heart if you choose to drive it yourself. At approximately the southwest corner of the Ring is Sneem, a very small town surrounded by mountains and sheep. In Sneem, on the town square, you will find a very traditional pub, the Blue Bull.

The place has a beer garden attached at the back. The food is tasty and plentiful and the service was solicitous. A nice place to stop while driving on the ring of Kerry.
