Ring of Kerry
The Ring of Kerry is the Kerry tourist trail and part of the mystical & unspoilt
region of Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years.
Its spectacular beauty is beyond question and it is a natural centre for outdoor
pursuits that include golf, cycling, walking, running, riding...
...and the very best fishing in freshwater rivers for salmon & trout and at sea
for bass, ray, pollack, cod, flounder, wrasse, mullet, mackerel and tuna.
The Ring of Kerry has some of the Europe's finest beaches that provide
all the facilities for a traditional seaside holiday.
Above all, it provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland.
Visitors to Ireland should not miss a trip to the beautiful Ring of Kerry Tourism.
The Kerry Way, the longest of the Irish Waymarked Trails, is a circular route
that circumnavigates the peninsula, starting and finishing in Killarney.
The landscape the route passes through is very varied, from the lakes of Killarney
to remote mountain moorland and semi-tropical south coast.
Terrain consists mainly of quiet tarmac roads, open moorland and woodland.
Some sections of the open moorland can be very isolated.
Aggregate ascent over the whole route is about 5400m. The highest point is
385m above sea-level, at Windy Gap between Glenmore and Caherdaniel.
