Highlights

The Ring of Kerry abounds in natural wonders and the beauty and grandeur of the scenery is unsurpassed by any in Ireland. Starting in the town of Killarney made famous by the magnificent "Three Lakes of Killarney" the "Ring" then continues anti-clockwise through Killorglin, Caherciveen, on to Waterville and Sneem before returning to Killarney. We, however, find this route to be "over-run" with tourists and therefore unkind to cycles so for that reason we suggest a much more leisurely and quieter mix of inland and coastal routes to give you just the same beauty and splendour if not more !

To see

-Killarney National Park
-Caragh Lake
-Cahersiveen
-Inny Valley
-Brida Valley
