The Ring of Kerry
County Kerry, Ireland
Snaking more than 120 scenically captivating miles in a circular route around the Iveragh Peninsula in southwest Ireland’s County Kerry, The Ring of Kerry takes in rugged and verdant coastal landscapes, lakes and mountains and charming seaside villages.
This classic circuit of the Iveragh peninsula appears in almost every self-respecting itinerary in Southwestern Ireland, but with good reason. The road winds past pristine beaches, medieval ruins, mountains and lakes, and there are ever-changing views of the island-dotted Atlantic.
The Ring of Kerry can easily be done as a single looping day trip, but there are plenty of opportunities to get off the beaten track and explore the interior of the peninsula on foot or by cycle. You can visit local artists, explore magical woodlands, go boating and even learn to surf. Let us know your interests and we’ll help you avoid the crowds and pick out the places best suited to you.
