The Ring of Kerry is a must-do and must-see for anyone traveling Ireland. The views are incredible and the roads are just as thrilling as they are terrifying (in a good way). There are tons of areas to pull over and check out— looking over lakes, mountains, waterfalls and the ocean. We traveled the entire country of Ireland, and the southern tip screamed the color green. We stayed at a cozy bed and breakfast before officially entering the ring, and a fresh Irish breakfast was the perfect way to start the drive. You can do the drive in one day, or break it up.
Note:Self-drivers (as opposed to those taking tour buses) are suggested to start in the town of Kenmare, which is featured on the map.
