Beautiful!

Although the driving is a bit scary at times, we were glad we embarked on the 5 hour drive around the Ring of Kerry. Lots of beautiful stops: beaches, cliffs, towns, etc.

Lots of neat attractions (especially in national park - hiking trails, waterfall, carriage rides, castles, etc) but need to get off the main road. Take the boat cruise from Muckross. Many hours of white knuckle driving on narrow roads. Small towns seemed similar and overrated. Drove CCW starting in Kildare but should have started in Killorjan. Can see similar sites... More

When planning your Ireland vacation a couple of months in advance, be sure to schedule a dry, sunny day for the Ring of Kerry! As our luck would have it, all day today was fog, murk, and total downpour. Our drive was a total waste of time--couldn't see a thing. Will give us something to do when we come back,... More

Plan for a whole day! There are so many places that you will want to stop and see, historical places and scenic places. Nice little villages to stop and explore also and do stop at the chocolate factory you can sample lots of different chocolates! The cliffs are a must see also so different from the cliffs of moher!

Four of us drove the ring on August 14. Weekend traffic made a leisurely drive. Very beautiful and scenic. Take your time and your camera. Several good place to record. Many places for a glass of Guinness and the daily vegetable soup

Take the time and go see all the places on the ring and Kerry if possible. Strictly a beautiful drive. Especially if you like any beaches and see part of history.

We took our time and drove through the ring of Kerry it took us almost 6 1/2 hours and we enjoyed every scenic route. Incredible views and vistas, Seaside seascapes, delightful small towns picturesque mountains and streams and lots of wildlife. Do not miss this opportunity if you get to this part of Ireland!

We spent the better part of a day on The Ring and didn't feel like it was enough. Advise spending two full days exploring The Ring and Dingle Peninsula. Scenery was among the best on the West Coast. Slea Head on Dingle and Skellig Ring on Kerry are musts.

We were In Kenmare on St. Patrick's Day of 2007.A lady in a little lace shop on Main Street told us there wasn't a parade in Kenmare and that we should go to Sneem( pronounced Scheem) to see a parade and other activities. She also informed us that many people hitchhike there on St. Patrick's because there wasn't a buss.... More

The sights are really outstanding, and the roads are full of interesting views. BUT, and this one has to be taken into account: you drive VERY slow, don't know why the drivers drives slow... Nevertheless, we recommand this route for almost a full day, you can go down to the beaches, see beautifull nature, ships, dogs, hourses. FUN
