The Ring of Kerry, south-western Ireland.

The Ring of Kerry is a 179-km-long circular tourist route in County Kerry, south-western Ireland. Clockwise from Killarney it follows the N71 to Kenmare, then the N70 around the Iveragh Peninsula to Killorglin – passing through Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen, and Glenbeigh – before returning to Killarney via the N72.

There is also an established walking path named The Kerry Way, which takes its own route, and a signposted Ring of Kerry cycling path which uses older quieter roads where possible. The Kerry Way roughly follows the scenic driving route of the Ring of Kerry.

Popular points include Muckross House (near Killarney), Staigue stone fort and Derrynane House, home of the Irish politician and statesman, Daniel O’Connell.

Close to Derrynane House is Derrynane Lodge a restored Farm House idyllically located on the Ring of Kerry. It is set in its own private gardens on six acres of lush vegetation with wonderful views of local beaches, amazing coastline and surrounding mountainous landscape. The garden is fully enclosed with lawn areas intermingled with mature shrubs.

Derrynane Lodge is an Irish Cottage accommodating 9 guests located near to the Ring of Kerry.
