A few hot Spots along the Ring of Kerry

Skellig Michael

An island 8 miles out into the Atlantic ocean with a 7th century monastic settlement at the top that can be climbed on a daily basis throughout the summer months (weather dependent of course). It became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996 and we can arrange a boat cruise around the island for you depending on the tour you choose.

This is a very vibrant town that surrounds the countryside with beautiful scenery and many activities to choose from. Killarney has received many awards for its welcoming and enthusiastic people and this enthusiasm is very much reflected in the various service providers around the town. No matter the weather there is always something fun to do in Killarney!



This is the only seafront village on the famous Ring of Kerry route in Southwest Ireland. World-class golf, beautiful scenery, fantastic food, or a quiet pint at a historic Irish pub, Waterville has it all. With a history of hospitality for over 200 years, time spent in Waterville is a time well spent. Waterville is the seafood capital of Ireland with many first class restaurants evident in various parts of the village. Go to sleep listening to the sound of waves crashing and waking up to the most breathtaking sunset with the lake water looking as still as a mirror.


The Ring of Kerry provides a truly unique experience and allows one to indulge in the ancient heritage of Ireland. Local cultures, traditions and Irish lifestyle are just a few of the many amazing things that make the Ring of Kerry a must do which many visitors return for year after year!
