Spent a whole day driving around this attraction (it's best to travel anti-clockwise, the same way as the coaches). The day started out very misty so the northern coastline was not very visible! However, we decided to follow the Wild Atantic Way and crossed to Valentia Island on the car ferry (7 Euros single for car and passengers)as it was... More

The views are spectacular and you will fill your camera with picture perfect photos and backdrops. Don't rush it, take your time and enjoy. Bear in mind that some roads are quite narrow, be patient. Remember to stop at various spots - there is much to see and do. Ideally try to plan this for a clear day.

Breathtaking, awesome, spectacular scenery. We did the Ring of Kerry on a cloudy day, with occasional drizzle, and the peaks sometimes hidden behind cloud. And you know what? It doesn't matter what the weather is like (within reason). Yes a little more sun would not have gone amiss, but the dramatic play of light and shade on the mountains is... More

As part of a coach party we did the Ring of Kerry. Unfortunately it started off wet from Killarney near where we were saying, but it did clear up by lunch time. Some roads are wide some very narrow, but everything we met eased up and let us pass, no one was driving fast. The scenery is really lovely. Lots... More

Beautiful views driving down country lanes including the Lakes of Killarney and lots of sea views. Well worth taking the Skellig Ring extension around the Skellig peninsula.

There are so many beautiful sights on the Ring of Kerry. Some of our favorites were Derrynane Beach, Ross Castle, the Lakes of Killarney and Sneem. You can dedicate a day to driving all the way around, but it's probably better to half one day and half another -- so you have time to make most of your stops. And... More

We decided not to rent a car for Ring of Kerry so we wouldn't be stressed with driving on the narrow roads and we are very happy we let Paddyagon Tours do the driving! This is a beautiful tour for the Ring of Kerry with many stops along the way. Our tour guide Michael was great. I learned a lot... More

We did a day tour from Cork. The problem is that there is over an hour`s driving to reach Killarney which is effectively the start of the ring of Kerry. Likewise there is another hour plus to get back to Cork from the end of the ring. When added to delays at each stop, notably when one of the party... More

Can be tedious for travelers with motion sickness. Many turns along the hills. Some shops along the route, can stop for photos and gifts.

Scenery, stops and people were all fantastic. Very glad we made the journey. Preferred the tour & driver (very narrow Cliffside roads) than renting a car. Never would have understood the history and ruins from 300AD Druid settlements and the sites we viewed. A 10-hour day but worth every minute.
