“Terrific walk”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

It commences just outside Killarney and is a fascinating walk along the old route to Kenmare. It is varied with board walks over the very wet sections. It is a one way walk and unfortunately the last section into Kenmare is a long straight road and boring. On the whole a very enjoyable 5hours.

The scenery was outstanding and the jaunting cars were great fun. It made us all want to buy property nearby.

“On the way to Kenmare”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Probably the best part of the Ring of Kerry scenic drive.. Every turn is just beautiful... Drive and enjoy the surroundings... Hills, and clouds and sheep grazing everywhere... Hills and emerald green fields everywhere.. Amazing!

“Great Drive”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

If you like driving and fabulous views then you must travel along the old road. A winding road that takes you through the lakes and hills with plenty of places to stop and enjoy the views.

“Part of the Scenic Ring of Kerry”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

There's a reason why this area must have the most visitors - the stunning scenery... Just beautiful, you cannot rush due to twisty turning roads, you just have to slow down and enjoy the surroundings...
