On the 15th (Sat), get outside with Ring of Kerry, then take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Patrick's Church, then play a few rounds at Ring of Kerry Golf Club, and finally stop by Lorge Chocolatier. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 16th (Sun): hike along Beara Way, then get outside with Ring of Beara, and then get to know the fascinating history of Molly Gallivan's Cottage & Traditional Farm.

You can plan Kenmare trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
