The Ring Of Kerry

The Ring of Kerry is a 179km circular scenic route that needs to be seen once in your lifetime. It starts in Killarney and goes through Kenmare, Iveragh Peninsula, Kilorglin, Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen and Glenbeigh before returning back to Killarney.

Some of the most popular spots along the way are Muskross House – http://www.muckross-house.ie/

The Stunning Muckross House is a mansion designed by the Scottish architect, William Burn and was built in 1843 for Henry Arthur Herbert and his wife.

With sixty-five rooms, it was built in the Tudor Style. After all this time the place is still amazing.
