We leave the Ring of Kerry to travel on the Skelling Ring Drive. Drive is picturesque with load of ocean views. Plenty of locations to take wonderful pictures. Plus you can visit the Skellig chocolate factory.
You can't visit County Kerry without taking this drive. We advise going counter-clockwise both because it's less stressful (you won't worry about falling off a cliff) and because the views are better coming this direction. Make sure to add the Skellig Ring into your journey....More
Would highly recommend this beautiful drive. We stopped off at a few locations and got some lovely pictures. The view from Kerrys most spectacular cliffs was amazing! Skellig Chocolate is also well worth a visit-excellent variety of handmade chocolates! Portmagee is a lovely small village...More
Even though the roads are smaller, extend your drive around the Ring route. You will see the Skellig islands (but no Jedi), and some really beautiful scenery. The Cliffs of Kerry are there, in case you want some photos of cliffs without the hordes at...More
We left Killarney at 8.30am and drove the Ring of Kerry including the Skellig Ring through Portmagee. We drove anticlockwise and encountered very little traffic and hardly any buses. The scenery was brilliant and the little towns were delightful. We stopped at castles and forts...More
The trip is well worth it for the views. As others say, going clockwise is the best bet. There are 3 very tight corners with steep single tracked roads to negotiate between Skelligs Chocolate and Portmagee. However, if you follow usually precautions, sound a horn...More
We driver out the Ring of Kerry clockwise from Kenmare, ending up on the Skellig Ring. Not crowded, very few other cars, and roads were fine. A bit challenging when the navigation wanted to send us on the minor backroad. But we made it!
Amzing views and some great places to stop at around the way. We went out of season so very few cars on the road, but not for the faint hearted driver!
We stopped at the chocolate factory and kerry cliffs, and then went onto Valentia...More
Skellig Ring scenic Drive is most certainly the most exciting part of driving the Ring of Kerry. In fact it is possible that you could miss this incredible part of the drive entirely on the ROK. That would be such a shame. We drove it...More
It seems people take it from whatever direction they're travelling from: from Waterville it would be clockwise, from Cahersiveen it would be counter clockwise. Personally, i'd recommend clockwise. As soon as you turn off the... More
It seems people take it from whatever direction they're travelling from: from Waterville it would be clockwise, from Cahersiveen it would be counter clockwise. Personally, i'd recommend clockwise. As soon as you turn off the N72 on to the Skellig Ring, Ballinskelligs Bay opens up in front of you, a beautiful view..
Then you have Madeleine Maria Weber Photography Gallery, Reenroe beach, Skellig Pottery, Tig Rosie's Dungeagan, Fermoyle Pottery, Café Cois Trá (Barbara's Café), Ballinskelligs Beach, Bolus Head Loop walk, St. Finian's Bay, Skellig Chocolate Factory, Kerry Cliffs, Portmagee (Cois Cuain Gifts, The Moorings, Fisherman's Bar, Skellig Mist Café), Skellig Boat Trips, cross the bridge to Valentia Island, Skellig Experience Centre, turn left clockwise around the island, Brayed Walk Loop, Geokaun Mountain & Fogher Cliffs, Valentia Ice Cream, Valentia Lighthouse, Glanleam House & Gardens, Knightstown (Valentia Island Caravan & Camping, The Pod Gifts & Café, Boston Bar, Knightstown Café, The Royal Valentia, Valentia Island Sea Sports, The Coffee Dock), Chapelstown (The Ring Lyne), then hop on the ferry across to Renard (The Point Bar/Restaurant)..
