Situated in the south west corner of Ireland the Ring of Kerry is one of those bucket-list places you simply must visit. The road winds past pristine beaches, medieval ruins, mountains and lakes, with ever-changing views of the island-dotted Atlantic.
It’s a 179-km-long circular tourist route in County Kerry that takes you through 10,000 years of dramatic history. The Ring of Kerry is probably the most visited attraction in Ireland outside of Dublin and Knock. The surface of the road is asphalted.
The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities. Don’t forget your camera! The road encounters some of Ireland's finest landscapes, a breathtaking mosaic of rugged, storm-bashed coast, steep mountains, velvety green fields, historic sites, slate-coloured glacial lakes and welcoming towns and villages. It’s a road that takes you from deep forest to the crashing waters of the Atlantic. It’s a road through rugged, majestic landscapes: where wild stag roam and where tumbling waterfalls crash into crystal streams teeming with wild salmon.
