One Ireland's great road trips, Ring of Kerry passes through a picturesque landscape that contains most of Ireland's notable features, including scenic outlooks, pristine lakes, glacial valleys, rocky islands, medieval castles, and historical forts. The circular route stretches for about 180 km (110 mi), beginning and ending in the town of Killarney. You can drive this route in a single day, but to experience the area at a slower pace, take the long-distance walking / cycling path following the slightly quieter roads. The narrow roads tend to get extremely crowded with tour buses, which travel counter-clockwise from Killarney. Avoid having to pass traffic in dangerously narrow sections by driving or cycling clockwise.

  • Although we have seen very beautiful landscapes, j was disappointed by the ring of kerry. Very few places rebuilt to s stop d make pictures, redundant landscapes, very narrow roads. The viewpoint that ns to the bluff was the kerry cliffs that are unfortunately paid (4 euros per person) to do in the opposite direction to clockwise for less world and little bus (see none)
