The Ring of Kerry
It may not fit on your finger or come in gold or silver, but this Ring is studded with gems. Skirting Ireland’s most western point, hogging an obscene amount of beauty and cute-as-can-be villages – The Ring (as it’s known down there) is just a bit special. The circular loop starts and ends in Killarney (they could have called it ‘The Circle of Kerry’ but it wouldn’t have had the same ‘ring’ to it!) Undisputedly one of Ireland’s most scenic drives, it also provides the backdrop to the renowned Kerry Way walking trail. Pedal power will get you around the 216km too, on a wind-in-your-hair cycle route. However you travel, keep your camera handy every step of the way. Oh, and about 20 empty memory cards.
