Ring of Kerry

Ring of Kerry Road Description

If you’re planning to see Ireland, why not do it on one of its most popular drives. The Ring of Kerry gives you the opportunity to see the best coastal views while driving on a thrilling road. It will show you miles of green, colourful Irish towns, rolling hills, amazing beaches and much more. Besides this, driving Ireland’s rugged coastline is an experience itself. The road is a fun one, and it will give you plenty of twists and turns to enjoy when driving.

This route is around 180 km long, and it will take driver around the Inveragh Peninsula, in a loop. Much of the driving happens along the coastline, and it will take one day, more or less, depending on how long you would like to spend in each place along the way.

The route

 Ring of Kerry

You can start in the most mountainous section of the Ring of Kerry road, south of Killarney. This area is the Killarney National Park, and you will drive up over the mountain passes, seeing views of mountains, lakes, as well as a forested section. There are 32 km of twists and turns while going through some of the most spectacular places. This is an excellent introduction to the drive this ring route.

After this part, you can choose the direction to head towards to. Most of the tourists go towards Killorglin, or you can head towards Kenmare if you want to avoid the traffic. From Kenmare, you can head toward Sneem and soon after you will reach Castlecove. Driving south, towards Caherdaniel, you will find some amazing beach views, considered the jewel of the Ring of Kerry route.

From here, you will continue the drive, towards Waterville, a nice small, as well as the starting point for another route, the Skellig Ring. This is another ring, but a significantly smaller one. It has an 18 km length and link Waterville and Portmagee via the Gaeltacht area. An interesting fact is that this is an Irish speaking area.  If you would like to enjoy a less trafficked road, this smaller ring is a great option because there are no other cars driving here.

Overall, the Ring of Kerry makes for a great drive. Winding along the Irish coastline, while passing along some spectacular views is second to no other driving experience. The road is smooth, and if you are lucky enough to be here when there aren’t many cars, that’s even better as you will have enough time to take all the views in.
