I will never forget this experience. I studied abroad in Ireland and we took a weekend trip to the Ring of Kerry. I have never seen views as beautiful as I did on this trip. It was easy to travel the entire expanse in a day, and I will never forget this experience.

A trip to Ireland would not be complete without taking in the beautiful scenery on the Ring of Kerry. If you choose to drive a rental car as opposed to taking an organized bus or van tour, be sure you are confident driving narrow roads on the right side of the road. The vistas of land, water and mountains will... More

This was a fantastic trip. I especially enjoyed not driving it. The roads are narrow and a little scary. Ray, our driver was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. He kept us up on the history of each place we passed through. The scenery was breathtaking. Wind was pretty strong but it seems most of Ireland was like that. Weather was... More

We rented a car and I drove well over 1000 miles throughout Ireland. This was by far the best part of the trip and the views are totally breathtaking. You will get a kick out of all the sheep, they are everywhere! The shoreline and landscape is well worth the drive, even for an American like me who isn't used... More

Unfortunately, I only had one day to get a taste of the Ring of Kerry. Needless to say, one day was not adequate time, but it was better than not visiting at all. The next tme I coe to Ireland, I plan to stay in Killarney and spend more time visting this area. This time I took a bus tour,... More

We visited Ireland in October, 2016 and drove around the route called the "Ring of Kerry". It was quite long and we spent quite a few hours following it. Got to see breathtaking scenery and the coast was stunning. A must see and do if visiting Southern Ireland.

We travelled round the Ring of Kerry as part of an organised coach trip and it did not disappoint! We had a local guide come onto the coach who was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a very informative talk all the way! We had appropriate stops along the route at places of interest! A must if you're... More

Firstly I think you need at 2 - 3 days to do the Ring of Kerry. Photo's just don't do the scenery justice you have to physically experience this raw beauty. We started off in the drizzling rain, but as the day went on we ended with sunny skies. I just loved all the narrow roads, farms and sheep. and... More

The views are breathtaking as you drive the coast. I recommend hiring a private car (Killarney Tour and Taxi is excellent) for a tour as the private car can access roads not open to buses. And more importantly if you are driving you can't enjoy the views.
