Our drive through the picturesque Ring of Kerry was nice but not the highlight of our trip to Ireland. The rugged ocean, cute cafes, sheep running around was nice. Pictures were great. However limited in terms of being exposed to the culture and history of Ireland

We used Deross Coaches to do the day tour, great company. They get you through quickly, stopping at the highlights. The views are beautiful. The restaurant they stop you at had a great view. As much as I enjoyed the views I didn't need a full day seeing them. Our favorite part was actually the stop at the sheep dog... More

First of all, we absolutely loved our drive around the Ring of Kerry. The scenery was lovely, and the little towns we went through were just charming. We started out in Killarney, at Ross Castle, and then headed to Cahersiveen to visit the Old Barracks and Ballycarbery Castle (fantastic). From there we went to Waterville to see the Charlie Chaplin... More

My friend and I rented a car in Cork and spent the day driving to and through the incomparable Ring of Kerry. We pulled over from time to time to meander about walking paths to admire the endless breathtaking views and sheep:) It was a drive I'll never forget!!

What an incredible drive with diverse scenery that's out of this world. This is a MUST SEE if you come to this country! Pull off the road whenever you see a spot and take in the views and fresh air. We drove counter clockwise and it worked out perfect with traffic. There is a lake near the end of the... More

If you drive the ring of Kerry, I recommend a few things. Rent the smallest car possible if you are renting and start early. We got started a bit late and missed some of the scenery because the sun went down.

I stayed in Killarney for 2 nights and spent 1.5 days driving around the Ring of Kerry. The first day we were driving up from Cork, and so took the 'long way' (N71 road), from Cork along the coast to Kenmare and then through the National Park. We left Cork at around midday, and got to our accommodation in Killarney... More

My partner and I decided to rent a camper van for a week and travel Ireland . It took us two days to complete the ring of Kerry because there are so many beautiful stops to see along the way ! I'd would 100% suggest taking this trip in winter , especially if your from overseas , as the snow... More

I have done this tour now three times! I can't get enough of this! The views are stunning! It is very relaxed to do it with an organized tour and a nice drive on the wild atlantic way. They bring you to a lot of villages with plenty of time. You will get a lot of information with Irish humour.

A lovely drive with some stunning scenery. You have this scenery all up and down the coast. Other than a few specific lookouts and features, the scenes are similar to those you'd see all up and down the coast. With the exception of Skellig. Still breathtaking vistas!
