A pretty drive, yes. Worth the hours of drive time, absolutely not. I am from Idaho and maybe we are more accustomed to scenic views, but this drive did absolutely nothing for me or my family. So many positive reviews I expected more. I have...More
Heading anti-clockwise, we started out from Killarney in a heavy fog. Given the weather conditions, we stopped in Killorgin to re-evaluate our onward travel. The group voted to proceed and luckily for us, the fog lifted. The morning journey was breathtaking, given that we took...More
Went on a drive here and offered amazing views. But the road only went one way and this led to an arkward encounter with another car that involved a lot of reversing and pressure. Highly recommend but be prepared but be prepared for windy, twisty...More
We’ve driven the Ring of Kerry twice now, once in early May and now in early December. First time was counterclockwise (the route the busses take) and this last time we tried clockwise. As a photographer I can safely recommend the counterclockwise direction for the...More
No crowds in December & therefore easy roads (as they are very tiny at parts). It is definitely more beautiful to visit in the summertime but we were lucky with some fair weather during our visit. We went clockwise to avoid being held back from...More
Our first stop along the Ring of Kerry is at the Statue of the Virgin Mary which stands at a viewpoint between Caherdaniel and Waterville overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay. We continue on this 100 mile picturesque coastal drive of sparkling landscapes, seascapes, mountains, meadows dotted with...More

You can drive in either direction, it is recommended to drive counter clockwise-same direction as busses, to avoid issues of backing up on narrow roads and cliffs. I drove it after taking a Buss, I recommend going with the busses not against the busses on the ring of Kerry, dingle peninsula and the great Atlantic way.
Hello there Folks, Some advice please :) Hopefully going to drive the Ring of Kerry for the very first time this Summer. I will be driver and we will be staying in Killarney for one night on a Saturday. Can you help with the following questions: 1. Daft I know, but is there much difference between driving clock wise / anti clock wise ? 2. Can anyone recommend a really nice place for lunch on this drive, either for a Saturday Afternoon, or for a good roast dinner on the Sunday ? ...More

Hi Ruddstar, If you fancy something off of the main tourist ring then we really enjoyed the following: 1.) The Skelligs Chocolate Factory at St Finan's Bay. A beautiful spot for an interesting business. 2.) A trip up Geokaun Mountain on Valentia Island. You can drive to the top and there are some stunning views, particularly if it is a clear day. 3.) Ballinskelligs Bay. A lovely spot to stop and take in the solitude and the scenery.

Hello, A group of 5 adults will be landing in Dublin, staying one night, taking train to Killarney, picking up car rental, and driving to Kenmare where we will be stationed for 6 nights. Please advise on how to best spend our time given this itinerary. Ring of Kerry and Beara Penninsula are obviously on the to-do list, but any advice on how to approach these routes and suggestions on other things to do, see and experience in the area are highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

A day trip to Mizen Head, Bantry and Gouganbara will be a great day out! Kenmare is a really nice town with lots of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy!
Need trip planning guidance (Ireland with 10 year old) (3 Replies)
Hi, My family, which includes a 10 year old girl, is heading to Ireland for 10 nights. We will spend 3 nights in Dublin visiting friends and are struggling to plan the other 7 nights. We do not want to be moving every night so are looking for a 3 (or maybe 4) places to visit. We are thinking much of the time will be in the SW of the country. We want to enjoy the countryside, the quaint towns, listen to music, sit in pubs, hike, kayak or canoe, take a horseback ride and possibly bike (if...More

Guess your 10yr old isn't paying otherwise Ballyseede might appeal a bit more. might also make more sense. Dublin to Kilkenny via whichever of many routes. Kilkenny to Cork area, Kinsale is an option but Fota (Cobh?) has a wildlife park or Blarney has a Castle with great grounds. Cork area to Killarney, for a couple of nights? Drive the Dingle Peninsula on the way to Ballyseede. Ballyseede to Dublin.
