We took a private tour of the Ring of Kerry with a driver and were able to see all the highlights with the aid of a local who gave us the background and history. We enjoyed this part of the Irish countryside.

This part of the Ring of Kerry Drive. If in Ireland one of it's greatest highlights is the Ring of Kerry drive. This part of the drive takes to Torc waterfall, the Ladies Lookout, Muckross House and Abbey etc. This is not to be missed

Breath-taking views, great hiking trails, drives, and walks. Bring kids, pets or go alone and get some fresh air. It's magical!

This is a very scenic drive on the way to Kenmare, but you have to be careful as the buses demand more roD than there is! Some great photo opportunities

The speed limits on these roads are WAY too high for me. We mostly just pulled over and let people pass. Some very beautiful country.

Speed limits are not appropriate for this ride, lol. The scenery is great the road is winding to say the least but worth it.

Twisty road on way to Kenmare. Ladies View spectacular, have a stop and a coffee. On a good day sit on the roof terrace and enjoy this view.

This road is definitely open to cars they just prefer no cars go through so it's better to enter from the other side but you can absolutely take a car through there. It is a very neat and scenic drive. Not busy as most... More

I hiked the old kenmare road Sunday last ...no way can you drive this route! The N71 road to kenmare from killarney is the main driving route, the old kenmare road is a totally different route 😀
