The Ring of Kerry

I’m staying at home for this week’s travel post and I’m looking at part of the Ring of Kerry, mainly Kenmare, Killarney and the drive between them.

I’ve been to this area so many times, I can’t even try to put a number on it. And I’ve been there in all kinds of weather. I always feel that tourists are lucky if they see Kerry in good weather, but it actually doesn’t matter. It can be spectacular in bad weather also.

If you’re looking for the famous forty shades of green and open space, this is the place to go. It’s also famous for red deer, as you can see in one of the photos above. There are plenty of places to stop along the way and take photos, as well as the towns to be explored, like Kenmare.

The national park has everything you could ask for and hikes for all different levels. We don’t have amazing waterfalls in Ireland, so we have to do with Torc waterfall. It is very pretty though and the views are great!

Of course Killarney is most famous for its lakes, which are beautiful at any time of the day or year.

    Such lovely pictures! I didn’t make it to the Ring of Kerry when I went to Ireland because I was afraid of the tourist crush, but these pics make me want to risk the masses.
