Ireland is the ultimate road trip destination. It is a country full of so much history and natural beauty. And the best way to see all this beauty is to rent a car and just drive. We happen to think one of Ireland’s most beautiful drives is the Ring of Kerry. The Ring of Kerry is a 111 mile coastal road that goes around the Iveragh Peninsula in Ireland. Technically it is not a ring but a horseshoe shape although some people start their Ring of Kerry journey in Killarney and make it a full circle. It is beautiful because you get to see a really rugged and beautiful coastal Ireland. This is the Ireland that the guide books gush about.
