we enjoyed going to off the ring to beaches and walks amazing shops beaches and mountain walks must do for anyone but be careful of crazy coach drivers with tour buses

I suggest starting the ring later in the day. In the summer it stays light out quite late. We started in a counterclockwise direction around 4pm and got about halfway through and spent the night in Waterville. Then we followed the Skellig ring during the bulk of the next day (when all of the coach buses were on the Kerry... More

A must do on most tourist bucket lists and many photo ops. Follow the advice of others to go the opposite way of all of the tour bus traffic OR go later in the day when the tour buses are all finishing up. Stop in Sneem for ice cream en route. Would love to drive the Dingle Penninsula for sake... More

I toured the Ring of Kerry at the end of June as part of a 7-day multi-city tour of Ireland. I knew that this site was a very popular tourist destination before my visit, but I did not know exactly why it was so popular. We drove the section of the ring from Killarney to Sneem. We were very fortunate... More

If you're keen on seeing some great southern Irish countryside head to the Ring of Kerry for a great day out. There are plenty of stops along the way to break up the trip; castles, beaches, lakes, bush walks and heaps more. Take a picnic lunch as there are plenty of stops along the way. Tip - We took the...

We travelled here with a group, so the bus took us along the route anti clockewise. We enjoyed very much the scenes along the Ring of Kerry and if we could, we would stay here longer.

We heard that the Ring of Kerry is "the best place to really see Ireland". It's mostly true. Ireland has so much to see that the Ring of Kerry only touches on really seeing Ireland. That said, I think we made an excellent choice in a driving tour versus taking the bus. That was especially true on the Ring of... More

We drove it counter clockwise from Killarney and that seemed to work very well. This peninsula is more in habited and crowded than the Dingle Peninsula but both are beautiful trips. At Cahersiveen we stopped at the castle and the ring forts and the kids loved them. It was a fun walk up to the forts and the kissing gates... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day on the Ring of Kerry. This was our first trip to Ireland and felt this was a "must do". The views really were spectacular and we could have spent even more time than we did. We made stops at Staigue Fort and Derrynane....both recommended. My prior research on whether to drive clockwise or counter-clockwise was... More
