Killarney is frequently seen as the starting point for the scenic Ring of Kerry, a road that travels around the Iveragh Peninsula in Kerry. There are 180 kilometres of winding roads that take you through some of the most stunning coastal landscapes you’ll see in Ireland.

The itinerary from Killarney takes you through towns and villages that feature blue-flag (swimmable) beaches, castles, stone forts, remote monasteries (and the site of Star Wars filming), fine restaurants, an array of local crafts and boutiques, and impressive vistas that will no doubt stay with you long after you’ve returned home.
