We are going to be staying in Kenmare for our trip around the Ring of Kerry, and we read in Rick Steves that if we go counter to the tour buses, we can time it so as to miss most of the bus traffic. It makes sense to me, but I have also heard that there are many drawbacks. Any comments or suggestions? Also, I understand that most of the buses start in Killarney. Do they all start at about the same time in the morning? If so, what time would that be? We really don't want to be following bunches of buses if we can avoid it in any way! Tthanks in advance for any advice.
