The Ring of Kerry
A circular route of mountains and cliff-top roads through towns and fishing villages.
Also the Lakes of Killarney can be seen on this trip.
The Ring of Kerry is the entire coast road around the County of Kerry. It begins along the River Shannon when you leave Limerick and enter Kerry on the way to Ballybunion – continues onward to Tralee and then out around the Dingle Peninsula and back through Inch and out again around the south side of Dingle Bay past Valencia Island, around Finan’s Bay, over Bolas Head past Waterville and up Kenmare Bay until it then crosses the Cork County line where it finishes.
To drive the entire ring would consume a full summer’s day.
The Ring should instead be taken in segments.
The trip to Ballybunion via the Shannon Road and then to Tralee.
Continue out to Dingle and back through Tralee and return.
A separate trip is to go through Cahircerveen and on to Waterville and then up Kenmare Bay, and return from Kenmare.
