The Ring of Kerry

The Ring of Kerry | County Kerry, Ireland

The Ring of Kerry, Mórchuaird Chiarraí in Irish, is a 111-mile route in County Kerry, Ireland. This particular route is extremely popular among tourists. Due to the narrow roadways and numerous switchbacks, I highly recommend exploring this specific part of Ireland with a tour company. The bus tour will take almost all day, but it is totally worth dedicating a full day of your vacation. Below is a glimpse into some of the sights you will see along the route.

The Kerry Bog Village Museum

Kerry Bog Village Museum is found at the foot of the Mcgillycuddy Reeks, Ireland’s highest mountain range. This tourist attraction provides an insight into how people lived and worked in Ireland during the rough famine years.

Ladies View and Killarney National Park

The final two stops around the Ring of Kerry is Ladies View and Killarney National Park. Ladies View is a scenic panorama that is about 12 miles outside of Killarney. This view point earned its name due the admiration of the view given by Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting during their 1861 visit.
