Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We took a "jaunting" ride (horse/carriage) through this amazing natural resource. I'm so glad to see that Ireland is preserving this amount of land and to see the animal roam freely and happily makes it even greater.

    We took the horse and carriage in and the boat ride back. It was just spectacular. An incredible journey to the beauty of Ireland

    A lovely stroll through the trees opened up to a beautiful waterfall. Adjacent to the fall were steps upward that I would have loved to explore, though we did not have time nor the energy, as it was at the end of our 6 hour tour around the Ring of Kerry. We have a reason to return!

    A cute little view point along the Ring of Kerry road. Named after Queen Victoria's ladies in waiting who visited and liked the view in 1861...

    One would need boots for safety and warm clothes to be prepared for the Irish weather. We had hailstones and sunshine as we climbed. Beautiful views well maintained by volunteers.

    We did the Ring of Kerry while on a motorcycle trip and it was one of the favourite spots in the south of Ireland. Spectacular views and plenty of pullouts along the way. Nice to go when it is quieter on the roads.

    It is only a five minute walk from the hustle and bustle of Killarney town. It is so quiet and a lovely place for a walk around the grounds.

    We drove through Molls Gap from Killarney. Its a stunner of a drive as you ascend along winding roads. The views are amazing, one of the nicest I can remember passing in a long time. Just after you pass through you can stop at Ladies View lookout point and there is a nice cafe at the top- the Avoca cafe were the scones are great. excellent cycling route if you like hills <3

    This drive took us over 1 hour and brought us all around the gap of dunloe, mols gap and ladies view. Excellent roads (Most of the time ) but not for the nervous or anxious Drivers. Stunning Scenery

    This trail offers an amazing array of sports as it ascends to Ireland's highest mountain and it includes multiple distinct routes up Carrauntoohill. The Devil's Ladder is also a common route. Most of the "ladder" itself has corroded, making the climb up and down exciting, but highly rewarding.
    The trails are well-marked, and the various terrain makes this amazing walk a terrific visitor challenge.

    There are no facilities along this route; everything's at the trail start. Dogs are not allowed on trails due to many livestock. Like the mountains, the weather changes quickly, causing tourists some trouble, thus all equipment must be well-organized. The closest spot to visit is the Cronin`s Yard

    Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty saved many lives from the Nazis during World War 2. This statue reminds us that we should never forget this heroic man.
