Views along the drive of the Ring of Kerry are beautiful. Be sure to take the ferry to Valencia Island. We hiked around the lighthouse and unintentionally found "Valencia Ice Cream Shop" on a back road. Loved talking with 14 year old Matthew who served...More

If you don't like heights don't look down but do look out as the view is spectacular and not to be missed. Cliffs dotted with spring flowers, crashing waves below and winding roads. Put on some good Irish tunes and enjoy the ride!

Due venture off the tourism route and do the Valentia Island drive which includes a car ferry, lighthouse and Tetrapod trackway exhibit. Stay on the "Wild Atlantic Way" route for your drive.

Excellent scenery all around the area. Good food at Fishermans Bar in Waterville. Well worth every penny

We visited during one of those rare days when sunshine was abundant. Stunning views and attractive villages with incentive to stop for a cup of coffee and/or lunch. In May, not too many tourists

Taking the time to stop and take in the scenery along this route is a must. There are so many locations which are simply splendid, a photographers dream. I hope to return again one day.

Hi, It's all a great adventure, but the day from Sneem to Kenmare is long and tiring so you could consider avoiding that section. All sections will be very tough if you strike heavy rain. You can download a series of maps... More
