South west Kerry is part of the mystical & unspoilt Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Ireland’s reputation for taking things easy could well be summed up with the formation of the Kerry Ring, which took a leisurely 460million years of geological activity to become one of the country’s most idyllic areas. It's spectacular beauty is beyond question and it is a natural centre for outdoor pursuits including golf, watersports, cycling, walking, riding and the very best fishing for salmon & trout.
The Ring of Kerry has some of the finest beaches in Europe that provide all the facilities for a traditional seaside holiday. Above all the Ring of Kerry provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland - see the Iron Age Forts & Ogham Stones, Old Monasteries and a landscape carved out of rock by the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.
The area Ring of Kerry is ringed by a 110mile road a favourite route amongst cyclists and walkers. The Hill walking and cycling provide a leisurely way to view the beautiful scenery and take in the unpolluted air of Ireland's most westerly region. The routes vary from the perfectly flat, thro' undulating, to the most challenging mountain passes. No matter the route the views are always spectacular and exploring the ruined castles, remote valleys, sub tropical gardens, waterfalls and lakes provides you with memories never to be forgotten. Evening stopovers bring an opportunity to experience Kerry's friendly people, their traditional music, dance and language.
