Self-Guided Ring of Kerry Cycle

The route of our Ring of Kerry BIKE Tour has the highest mountain range in Ireland as a backdrop and follows the world famous Ring of Kerry. It traces the coastline of the Iveragh Peninsula encompassing Muckross, Killarney National Park, historic Derrynane and the picturesque villages of Sneem, Kenmare and Glenbeigh.

The route  abounds in natural wonders and the beauty and grandeur of the scenery is unsurpassed by any in Ireland. Starting in the town of Killarney – made famous by the magnificent “Three Lakes of Killarney” the “Ring” then continues anti-clockwise through Killorglin, to Caherciveen, on to Waterville and Sneem before returning to Killarney.
We, however, find this route to be “over-run” with tourists and therefore unkind to cyclists so for that reason – we suggest a much more leisurely and quieter mix of inland and coastal routes to give just the same beauty and splendour – if not more.
