On a recent trip to Killarney my Husband and I decided to take a drive on the Kerry way. As the weather was beautiful for this time of the year it was well worth it. The views were spectaciliur. We took loads of photos. It is a long trip but well worth it.

This was one of the most memorable experiences that I've had in my life. It was an absolutely gorgeous drive. However, try to be prepared for a picnic as it is a long drive and restaurants are not truly at your disposal--although there are restaurants available! Also keep in mind WHEN you are visiting. We went sort of out of... More

This is a long system of paths that weave their way around the Ring of Kerry. I have walked several of them ( most around Kenmare) and each has been full of spectacular scenery, countless bird songs and an atmosphere suggesting fairies and leprechauns behind every tree. Take you pick; they are all magical.

One can drive or take a trip through the Kerry Way by bus. I chose the latter. Great views all the way. It takes about six hours with a few stops to do the circle.

We thought we could see the entire Ring of Kerry in one day and that is just completely would not do it justice. I thought we would just drive around and it would take four hours but there is so much to see and do that if we didn't get out of the car and explore the castles and manor... More

Driving the Ring of Kerry is a "do not miss" activity when you go to Ireland. The scenery is breathtakingly gorgeous. I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the landscape and drive is. The views change constantly from pastoral to seaside, cliffs, and moors - do not miss this.

We participated in a full day travel around the Ring of Kerry and were amazed at the diversity of all we saw. Fortunately we had an incredible sunny day and so could see far and near. Even the Stellig Michael was very visible. It was a lovely drive with many picture taking moments.

Fantastic driving route with plenty of walking tracks and scenic lookouts. Seems to go for ever. Make sure you have plenty of bytes for you camera.
