The Ring of Kerry, Ireland


There are so many beautiful places to choose from if you are going to visit Ireland, and one of the most popular is the Ring of Kerry in the south west. If you are going to explore it, then most people start at the town of Killarney, a hive of activity in the summer and just as beautiful and inviting in the winter. Here alone there are many great places of interest, including Ross Castle and the gardens of Muckross House. If you are driving, then it is recommended that you travel anti-clockwise from here so that problems on the narrower stretches of the road can be avoided. 

As you travel around the Ring of Kerry, you will see many beautiful sights. On the way from Killarney to Kilorglin, you will see Carrauntuohill which is the highest mountain in Ireland. Don't forget your camera as you can take pictures of this wonderful sight and display them proudly at home. You can gaze at them fondly while playing Party Poker or show them off to friends and family who come to visit. Continuing on your way, there are many small detours that you can take if you want to. This includes Valentina Island which you can access via a causeway. Here you will find many different types of sub-tropical plants, made possible by the Gulf Stream. 

There are many interesting houses you can visit on the Ring of Kerry, as well as plenty of small, picturesque towns. The favourite place for many people is Ladies' View, which you will find towards the end of your journey on the road from Kenmare and Killarney. This is a beautiful place that was named after the ladies-in-waiting of Queen Victoria, as they visited it on 1861 during the royal visit to Muckross House, Killarney.
