The Ring of Kerry, also known as the Iveragh Peninsula is part of a mythical and unspoilt region in the south west of Ireland that has been attracting visitors for hundreds of years. The area is full of spectacular attractions and it’s natural beauty makes it the perfect center for outdoor pursuits such as golf, cycling, walking, water-sports and fishing.

The Ring of Kerry is also home to some of the finest beaches in Europe (Rossbeigh), but above all it provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland. Within the Ring you’ll find monasteries, Iron Age forts, Ogham stones and a landscape, which was molded over 10,000 years ago by the last Ice Age. Here are a selection of the many fantastic attractions that await you in the Ring of Kerry:

Gap of Dunloe

Taking the pass through the MacGillycuddy Reeks is a truly magical experience where you’re walking, cycling or taking a ride in a jaunting car.

Rossbeigh

Rossbeigh is a scenic beach in Glenbeigh consisting of 8 km (4.9 mi) of golden sand and panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. The west side of Rossbeigh facing the Atlantic ocean is perfect for surfing or windsurfing, whilst the east side is protected somewhat from the Atlantic's breezes making it great for beach games, canoeing and learning how to windsurf.

Kenmare Lace

The lace making industry in Kenmare (one of Ireland's heritage towns) originated in the “Little famine years” of the 1860s. The Poor Clare nuns taught lace making to the women of the area, thus giving them a skill enabling them and their families to survive in hard times. This unique lace is still made in Kenmare today.

Molls Gap

Located amongst the long and winding road between Kenmare and Killarney, perfect for viewing the famous MacGillycuddy's Reeks and surrounding lakes on the many Jaunting cars on offer.

Ladies View

You’ll find Ladies View roughly 16 km (9.9 mi) from the town of Killarney and when you do you’ll be treated to panoramic views of the three lakes and primary mountains.

Torc Waterfall

Just 7 km (4.4 mi) from Killarney town, Torc Waterfall is 18.3 m (60 ft) high with surrounding trees and you can even take in views of the Lake area of Killarney National Park on the way up to the waterfall.

 

The Ring of Kerry is the place to take of from if you want to visit the beautiful Skellig Islandsor Valentia Island.
