I travelled to Ireland in May this year and was fascinated by the view of the lakes and mountains along Ring of Kerry and I believed that everyone should make this trip if you plan to travel to Killarney.

I was there with a local friend where he is incharged of all the itineraries like contacting the tour company etc so I cant provide any contacts to arrange for the trip. But not to worry coz most of the hotels and B&Bs there should be able to assist you on that. But I highly recommend you to choose the tour guide by the name of John because he is awesome!! A great entertainer!!

The Ring of Kerry - Ireland Jul 03, 2011
Conas atatu mo cara

The Ring of Kerry is part of the mystical of Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Its spectacular beauty is beyond question and it is a natural centre for outdoor pursuits.

The Ring of Kerry provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland

Must visit the Iron Age Forts & Ogham Stones, Old Monasteries and a landscape carved out of rock by the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago. Visitors to Ireland should not miss a trip to the beautiful Ring of Kerry

THE RING OF KERRY

The Ring of Kerry is a trail in County Kerry, Southwest Ireland. There are numerous variations, but the most popular is a 170 km circular route starting from Killarney. Since we visited in late October, I was able to drive the ring counterclockwise at a time without much bus traffic. We started early in the morning and leisurely headed around the Iveragh peninsula making numerous little sidetrips.

The variety of scenery we saw in a few hours still boggles the mind. Of course, it doesn't take much to rattle my cage :-) As you can see from the photos in my blog, we discovered:

• The goat who rules Puck Fair at Killorglin

• Carrantuohill, Ireland’s tallest mountain

• Rossbeigh Strand Beach

• Ballycarbery Castle relics near Caherciveen

• Valentia Island in Dingle Bay

• Ballinskelligs Bay at Waterville

• Derryname, Daniel O’Connell’s house

• Staigue Fort, built around 3000 years ago

• Steve "Crusher" Casey statue at Sneem

Our full and fantastic day ended at Kenmare, one of the most charming towns in County Kerry. We cruised the short distance back to Killarney laughing and reveling in our good fortune. Later, we capped the enchanting evening with lamb stew and traditional Irish music.

A fabulous adventure with the luck of the Irish... or as we say in Kansas, "even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every once in awhile." :-D

Ring of Kerry Jun 05, 2005
The south-western part of Ireland is home to the “Ring of Kerry”, a tourist drive that leads around a large loop. The loop takes you out along the coastline and past several wonderful sights then south and along even more coastline until you head back northeast through the National Park. We had several stops along our route, including one at the Kerry Bog Village and the Red Fox Pub, and another at the “Ladies View”, a very good view of the Lakes of Killarney. Of course this was the bus tour. I understand that due to the narrowness of the roads and number of busses it suggested that if you are in a car you go the opposite direction. The day we took this drive we had one of the few liquid sunshine days of our tour and the clouds were very thick and low. I think the Pub sold more hot chocolate that day than beer or ale.

Great review, Roger! Roger, you're good with statistics; help me out. Since I evidently drove the wrong way (same way as the bus) on the wrong side of the road (left side? how can the right side of the road be wrong?) - do two wrongs committed by a half-witted driver make a right? And while you're answering that, how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Please consider that Guinness = "liquid sunshine", then every day is sunny in Ireland...
