The ring of Kerry

by Kieran McCarthy | 12 November 2015
Category: General History
Synopsis
One of the most famous and popular road circuits for tourists in the southwest of Ireland, the Ring of Kerry traverses the coastline of the Iveragh Peninsula, with a great many tourist sites along the way from Killarney's lakes to Waterville's coast. A century ago, the Grand Atlantic Tour emerged as one of the essential travel itineraries by horse-drawn and motor bus tours on the island of Ireland. For the landscape lover, postcards were produced for visitors to remember their visit and to send to loved ones. These beautiful, colourful postcards showcased the region and framed the visitor's memories. The magnificent scenery, with unspoilt coasts and rugged mountains, makes the Ring of Kerry a top tourist destination. Dramatic panoramas, majestic mountain shapes, ancient sites and heritage towns are found along the winding route of the N70 through the southern tip of Kerry. The 180-km route is much travelled, especially by coach tours. Along the coast are picturesque little towns such as Sneem, Caherdaniel and Waterville. Kenmare Bay to the south, Dingle Bay in the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the west surround this peninsula, which boasts 75 miles of beaches.
