This was the highlight of our trip to Ireland. We rented a bus for our family which was well worth the extremely reasonable price as the roads are so narrow!

This is a magnificent drive. It's best to go on a day when there is no fog! Rain is OK and sunshine is marvellous. There is something for everyone, just take your time!

When on the Beara peninsula it is easy to visualise that this landscape has not changed in hundreds of years. Every twist and turn on the journey throughout this part of the world is filled with its own unique miracle of scenic beauty. Wonderful way to experience pure nature and unspoilt open landscape. Visit, breathe deeply, relax and feel at... More

This peninsula is recommended by locals as as good as ring of kerry and is less traffic too. We found it to be stunning scenery and little traffic.

9 nights to experience heavy rain, sleet, hail, mist, the miles of bog, big uphill and down, wonderful serenity and at times million dollar views. Well worth the adventure and thank you Wonderful Ireland and Peter Gavin. Faultless service except the first taxis - based in Kenmare - the driver was a maniac - one speed - too fast and... More

This is a most stunning route with mountain passes, stunning scenery and interesting places to pass through along the way. If you drive a very low cc engine car, I would not recommend it as a bit of power is needed to handle the route but it is a most enjoyable DRIVE. If you don't like driving then be driven... More

Really beautiful scenery, not for the faint hearted. We went by car and to be honest you really need to be on foot/bike to really appreciate the views as the roads are so narrow that it is a little dangerous trying to enjoy the views and avoid other cars and bends on the road.

Why would anyone want to drive the Ring of Kerry when this peninsula has so much more to offer. It was spectacular....... green; not rocky like Kerry. I wonder why tour books don't tell people about this lucky find. We stayed at a B&B nearby and they recommended we drive this. What great advice!
