We took a private driver tour from Killarney around The Ring of Kerry. It was an amazing experience to see the Irish Countryside, the cliffs, the mountains and just be able to relax and enjoy it

So beautiful and so so very pretty. We went in the Fall and it was a lot less crowded. We rented a car and toured on our own.

Magnificant views, weather dependant. Lovely view point stops along the way and many good places for coffee stops and lunch time eats.

Visited here recently. It wasn't great. Not a great selection for gluten free. Staff abit abrupt. Cleaned under our table while we were eating. Not a great atmosphere.

Two days of walking this trail barely scratched the surface of its treasures. It passes through woods, grazing land, up into hills with beautiful views of the sea, and through towns in the Ring of Kerry area.

We walked 11 Km from the church just past Lady's view to Muckross House. Was a spectacular walk through a well marked trail. In woods, between mountains. A number of areas have to walk over rocks so need to be careful. The trail also goes...More

We had a private driver tour, we weren't rushed took all day. Our driver could take us places that the big tour buses couldn't go because of the narrow roadways. The only way to properly do the Ring of Kerry.

Hi, It's all a great adventure, but the day from Sneem to Kenmare is long and tiring so you could consider avoiding that section. All sections will be very tough if you strike heavy rain. You can download a series of maps... More

You should know there is a new bus that travels around this area! It's called Local Link and goes much more often than the 279A, and also goes to Portmagee, Ballinskelligs, and more. I stay in Glenbeigh in the summer, and... More
