Create an itinerary including Ring of Kerry
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.

  • Stayed in Kenmare. Rented a car and made 3 day trips to explore the Ring. Forget the bus tours. Stay away from the touristy sites. Plan to do your own exploring. Lots of things to do and see...
