If you're in Killarney and don't have time for the full ring, do a mini-ring to the south. Drive down to Kenmare, then Sneem. When you get to Sneem, take a right onto R568 (which takes you back to Molls Gap. Beautiful mountain scenery that's...More

Beautiful 100 mile drive through the bog marshes up the mountain. Great scenic views. Winding road through some small towns. Views of Skellig Michael from Valencia Island. Had heard so much about this drive, it didn't quite live up to the hype.

With its diverse scenery and spectacular views, this area is well worth the effort. We were staying near Kinsale, so quite a drive, certainly glad we allowed ourselves a whole day. In the National Park, Lady's View is lovely and the cafe opposite is highly...More

The Ring of Kerry is a long drive on a winding narrow road. There are a few nice vistas and a couple of towns along the way but for the most part it is a boring drive. Better to leave Killarney toward Muckross House then...More

Instead of joining a tour I decided to rent a car and view the countryside. With the help of a GPS, it's pretty easy and I think was a more relaxed viewing of the Ring of Kerry. I started out my morning driving from the...More

The views were very beautiful. After bus touring for the last 8 days we were kind of blurring together the Irish Country sides. But looking at our photos we are remembering and sorting it all out. I should of taken more photos of the signage.

Having previously driven this very scenic loop as a younger person, and with time a factor, we only drove the Kenmare to Killarney section on this trip ... and once again was reminded how beautiful this part of Ireland was. The views of the lakes...More

There are some lovely corners - around Caherdaniel and Derrynane - and the north side offers some lovely views to Dingle but is otherwise pleasant but not wow.Slea Head drive on the Dingle Peninsula is much more attractive overall I thought.Also enjoyed Connemara better too....More

Can be done but a very good chance you will spend the day driving rather than taking in and enjoying the sites. Not really recommended unless you have no other options.
