It's a drive through a landscape of barren hills and coastline. There's many more of these in the world and they are better, less commercialised and less crowded

See Ireland’s pristine coastal scenery from high atop the hills as you drive through. We loved seeing the shepherds and their lambs!

We stayed at Fossa, right on the Ring of Kerry and we drove anti-clockwise, which went against all the advice, but for us it made it easier. The scenary is amazing, the driving is challenging, especially when a tour bus is coming at you and...More

We were looking forward to the Ring of Kerry our entire trip. We drove it ourselves our last few days of our holiday. Easy to navigate & lots to do/see with AMAZING beaches. Roads are horribly maintained, though. Other rings we drove: Ring of Beara...More
