Absolutely loved these views. We had 3 rainbows and was a clear day! Our tour guide said this was rare in October. Highly recommend!

Stunningly beautiful place to visit. Nature at her best. This has already been well documented by previous writers of reviews.

The greens of Ireland and the beautiful countryside were the best driving around the coast in The Ring of Kerry. We spent the day but you could take longer.
We stopped at a sheep farm and saw a sheep dog demonstration. Very impressive.

The Ring of Kerry is a ring road that circumvents Kerry’s Iveragh Peninsula. Most of it is coastal. The Ring of Kerry route is one of Ireland’s most famous and popular holiday routes to drive. So, what is special about it? The stunning scenery, living history and the diverse wildlife and some of the most varied landscapes in Ireland’s lush green hills. It is simply superb!

There is much to see and do but to get the best out of it, you need a guided tour, I think. It is not something you can visit quickly because the route is over one hundred miles long. There are lots of places to distract you as you progress from nice cafes to exhibitions and vantage points where you will be amazed at the landscapes. Don’t miss this lovely trip. Allow at least half a day to see this and choose a sunny day.

We spent a full day driving the Ring of Kerry. Started around 8am and finished up around 6pm. Drove clockwise, which seemed to work very well. The highlight for us was the stops along the Skellig Ring. I will admit that we enjoyed the Dingle Loop a bit better (which we did the next day) - but that didn't take away from the Ring of Kerry. Our itinerary included Ladies View, Molls Gap, Kenmare, Com an Chiste, Waterville, Ballinskellig Castle & Abbey, Cum an Easpaig, Kerry Cliffs, Portmagee, Bray Head loop and Geokaun Mountain. A full day for sure, but so worth it! Kerry Cliffs would have to be the highlight amongst the Skellig Ring stops.

We only spent one day exploring the Ring of Kerry, but we could have spent several there. We weren’t able to see everything we wanted. I suggest planning at least two days if you go. The scenery is beautiful! Along the way, there are ancient ruins, a stone fort, a castle, and much more. We really enjoyed it!

If you're lucky to catch good weather, this place will look to you like it has dropped from the heavens. It's absolutely fantastic, probably the most beautiful place I've ever been to. There are so many places to view and admire that, if I were to list them all here, this review would look more like a book than a review. If you love landscapes and taking pictures of those landscapes, Ring of Kerry is one of the few places where every corner, every turn, hill or mile of it looks like wallpaper.
Take at least 2 days to visit this place, it's worth it.

Extremely scenic and beautiful drive of 2 hours. Some spots take your breath away. The very cliffs at the end of the peninsula and the ladies view are highlights.
