This spectacular route weaves its way through a diverse tapestry of stunning landscapes, from coastal cliffs and pristine beaches to rugged mountains and lush green valleys. Sit back, relax and enjoy some of the most beautiful natural sights and vistas in the world.
Throughout its history, the Ring of Kerry has been home to ancient monastic settlements and medieval forts such as Staigue Fort, a well-preserved stone fort dating back to the Iron Age. The region also boasts vibrant Gaelic culture, with traditional music, dance and storytelling still thriving in the villages along the way.
Weave through charming towns like Killarney, Kenmare and Cahersiveen, each offering a unique glimpse into local life. Travel with Insight on Irish Elegance and meet the Ring of Kerry inhabitants for yourself on a fascinating MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience.
