The Ring of Kerry (or Iveragh Peninsula to give it its correct name) is the Kerry tourist trail and part of the mystical & unspoilt region of Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years and is part of the Wild Atlantic Way. Its spectacular beauty is beyond question and it is a natural centre for outdoor pursuits that include golf, water-sports, cycling, walking, running, riding and the very best fishing in freshwater rivers for salmon & trout and at sea for bass, ray, pollack, conger eel, cod, flounder, wrasse, mullet, mackerel and tuna.
Above all, The Ring of Kerry is a photographers paradise - wildlife river, coastal and forest - stunning scenery that changes as the light dances to the tune of the incoming Atlantic weather. We welcome your photographs to include in our gallery pages.
Due to its location facing the the mighty Atlantic Ocean, the Ring of Kerry also has some of the Europe's finest beaches that provide beautiful sandy strands and all the facilities for a traditional seaside holiday.
In summary, the Ring of Kerry provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland - see the Iron Age Forts, Ogham Stones, Old Monasteries and a landscape carved out of rock by the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago. For visitors to Ireland a journey around the beautiful Ring of Kerry is a "must do".
There are few hotels around the Ring of Kerry but this gives the visitor a chance to experience the real Ireland. Lodging in an Irish Bed and Breakfast or a Family Home in Kerry brings the visitor closer to the people, their culture, traditions and genuine Irish hospitality. It will be a pleasure for your host to provide local knowledge of where to go what to see and they will often book cycle hire, boat trips and coach tours to make your Ring of Kerry experience fulfilling. You may get the chance to taste traditional Irish Soda Bread or an "Irish Fry" and regardless of your tastes, the variety of food on the breakfast menus is sure to satisfy.
