The Iveragh Peninsula, in the south-west corner of Ireland, contains the country’s most spectacular mountain road – the Ring of Kerry. Over the centuries it has been the inspiration of poets and writers because of its magnificent coastal scenery and rugged countryside.
The Ring of Kerry is usually done in an anti-clockwise direction along the banks of the River Laune to Killorglin, via Glenbeigh, Kells, Caherciveen and the southern shores of Dingle Bay. The tour continues to Waterville and along the coast through Coomakista Pass and Derrynane and on to Sneem. From Sneem you travel up the mountain road to Molls Gap, then past Ladies’ View and back to Killarney.
