No trip to Co. Kerry would be complete without taking in The
Ring of Kerry. This is the name given to the 250km coast-road circuit
of the Iveragh peninusla and is one of Ireland's most famous tours.
Running through an area of oustanding natural beauty, the circuit
takes in the towns of Killarney, Kenmare, Parknasilla, Sneem, Derrynane,
Waterville, Cahersiveen, Glenbeigh and Killorglin. The fishing village
of Portmagee, Ballinskelligs, the Skellig Islands and Valencia Island
may also be included.
The Iveragh peninsula is bound by the waters of Dingle Bay (north),
Kenmare Bay (south) and the wild Atlantic Ocean in the west. It
is preferable to take the tour anti-clockwise because the marvellous
views are better seen in that direction.
