My father lives in cork and when I went to visit we did the ring of Kerry and it was absolutely beautiful. If you're in the southwest of Ireland make this a priority

The Ring of Kerry is beyond doubt one of the most beautiful places in Europe. See the landscape change constantly. Have that great view on the sea. Do experience the weather that can change every few kilometres. Enjoy the view on Skellig Islands. Don't forget...More
