To get you in the mood for St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th, have a look at‘s guide to the Ring of Kerry…

Located on the west coast of Ireland, the Ring of Kerry is one of the Emerald Isle’s most popular tourist trails. Taking in the whole of the Iveragh Peninsula, the circular driving route follows three roads a distance of 170 kilometres. An 8-day walking trail, the Kerry Way, follows roughly the same route, and is the longest walking trail in Ireland.

There are enough abbeys, churches and pretty little towns along the Ring of Kerry to keep you busy for weeks, but it’s the stunning coastal and mountain scenery that really steals the show, and the best way to experience local life is by staying in a traditional Kerry B&B.

The traditional starting point is the town of Killarney, on the shores of Lough Leane. A popular tourist destination for over 250 years, Killarney has plenty to offer the visitor, with a wide choice of shops, restaurants, historical attractions and sporting activities, not to mention plenty of Blue Flag beaches.
