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.

The scenery through Co. Kerry is breath taking. The drive and walks fabulous and not to be missed with many interesting places to visit. We enjoyed the Cliffs of Kerry.

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.

The Ring of Kerry is a day trip that is a rough circle on a map. Many picturesque sites but alot of driving. Would be a long bus day tour. Good but not great.

My wife and I hiked the entire route in October, weather was fantastic, highs between 55 and 65 and it only rained one day. Understand that the trail will be muddy, wet, and covered in sheep crap and you will be fine. Some of the smaller towns like Caherdaniel have limited options for accommodations so book ahead if you can.... More

If you go to Kerry, and do not drive the Ring of Kerry, you may as well stay home! This was our favorite spot in all of Ireland! Just spectacular! The views are out of this world and you will keep stopping to take pictures...and it is worth it!
