Discover the Ring of Kerry
Out at the very edge of Europe, on South West Ireland’s wild Atlantic seaboard, the Ring of Kerry circles the Iveragh Peninsula. The Ring is one of Ireland’s best-known attractions. And with good reason, for it takes visitors through magnificent natural beauty. But it’s the lovely contrast between the warmth of the people and the elemental nature of the place that makes it so special, and worth slowing down to explore.
The famous Ring of offers stunning scenery including mystic mountains, rugged coastline, cliffs, beautiful beaches, narrow and bendy roads, colourful villages, and the highest mountain of Ireland Corran Tuathail. Throughout the landscape are ancient forts, castles and monasteries. The warm Gulf Stream gives Kerry a balmy climate and makes it a welcome home to subtropical vegetation that colour the countryside.
The Ring will truly reveal itself if you take the time to lose yourself down byways, to stand wind-buffeted on cliff tops, to watch the cloud shadows on distant mountains, to sit by a peat fire in a local pub, to wander on wide sandy beaches, to stride out on the long-distance Kerry Way, to taste the local soda bread and fresh seafood, to soak up the traditional music, the ancient history, the stories, the gaeilge … These are the things that make memories.
There are some fabulous places to stay along the Ring of Kerry in Sneem, Westcove , Kenmare and Killarney. From here you’ll have easy access to Dingle, Beara, Cork, Bantry, South Cork, and Killarney National Park.
