Awesome sightseeing. The cliffs view is breathtaking!! We just loved it. In my opinion, they are nicer than Cliffs of Moher. We drove around the Kerry Ring which had many small villages and awesome sights. You can see much more niche areas than in the bus tours. Only issue is that the roads are so narrow and single lane on top of challenge of driving on left!! Highly recommended

The views were stunning from beginning to end! We also went further south to skellig to see the Kerry Cliffs which were breathtaking! I am so glad we took the extra time to do that. I was nervous about driving because I heard some of the roads can get pretty narrow. I honestly felt comfortable the entire time even when it got a little tight. We drove the ring clockwise to avoid all the tour busses. It was excellent advice! If anything, just always anticipate walkers and people on bikes.

Fabulous views, lovely friendly people, we were very lucky to have dry weather which enabled us to see the views.
We drove around the Ring of Kerry including stops in about 5-6 hours, but if you are able to go walking or hiking you could spend a week there.

It’s not that easy of drives. There are a lot of tour buses that take up the road. Dingle was a better scenic drive. I would skip ring of Kerry and just see the highlights like wishing bridge, torc waterfall, muckrose house and Abby. It looked a lot like upper Canada east coast

We absolutely loved the Ring of Kerry and we were very lucky to have a wonderfully sunny day for it. We drove anti-clockwise and spent the whole day - around 7h of driving but with plenty of stops. We picked up a great map that showed the main viewing points and had that as our guide. Our favourite part was the Skellig Ring which is not for the faint-hearted driving-wise but, to be fair, there's not much traffic on the roads compared to Cornwall in the UK. The Kerry Cliffs were our absolute favourite and compare very favourable to the Cliffs of Moher.
We found that a full day was not enough, particularly as we were getting tired towards the end and missed out a couple of stopping points. But we'll be back to do another day on our next trip to Ireland and try to also do the Dingle peninsular which we couldn't fit in on this trip

Stunning beautiful! Don’t bother going if the clouds are covering the mountains as it’s a waste of your time, weather was like that 3 years ago and it completely hid how beautiful the scenery was! Save your tour for a day with white clouds or better!

One of the most beautiful places to visit in Ireland. It was said on the website to spend there around 3,5 hours but we wanted to be there for the whole day. The views on the view points are stunning and the road is breathtaking.
