Self Drive On Rings Of Kerry

Towards the end of second week of September, my plan is to start driving at 8:00 AM from Kenamare going clockwise with stops at Staigue Fort, Ballinskelligs Beach, Portmagee/Valentia Island, Cahersiveen, Rossbeigh Beach/Glenbeigh. Main purpose is to enjoy natural beauty and take pictures. A short lunch break somehwere.

1. Any suggestion for stopping elsewhere?

2. I know this is subjective but would like to know how much time

should I allow from Kenmare to Killorglin ? I am bit frugal when

it comes to time but do not want miss out something worth


Thank you.

I would stop at Derrynane House heritageireland.ie/en/… It is a historic house in a beautiful setting with lovely gardens and beaches. If the day is nice there are great views from the Fogher Cliffs on Valentia Island. destinationringofkerry.com/geokaun-mountain-…

As well as Staigue Fort, have you thought about Cahergal and Leacanabuaile forts near Cahersiveen


They are each very different but all worth visiting.

Our pictures taken on a dull, damp and misty day (very atmospheric) are here:
