Ring of Kerry Tour Highlights

Kerry Bog Village

The Kerry Bog Village, located on the beautiful Ring Of Kerry gives you a fascinating insight into how people lived and worked in Ireland in the 18th Century.

The village is the only one of its kind in Europe and is one of Kerry’s leading tourist attractions. Ideal for families and tourists with spacious parking and a restaurant and bar onsite.

Caherciveen

In the centre of Cahersiveen you will find the Daniel O’Connel memorial church. Built between 1888 – 1902 this church is the most dominant feature/landmark in the town. It is one of the few catholic churches in the world dedicated to a lay person (Daniel O’ Connell). Buried in the grounds of the church are the remains of Monsignor Hugh O’ Flaherty whose heroic life is captured on the famous Gregory Peck Film “The Scarlet and the Black”.

Another unusual building of interest in Cahersiveen is the old Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) barracks. The old barracks, now a heritage centre, was designed and constructed between 1869 and 1871.

Waterville

Stunningly situated between the wild Atlantic Ocean and the fresh water lake of Lough Currane sits the beautiful village of Waterville. It is shameful to even contemplate the tens of thousands of people who have visited Waterville, photographed Charlie Chaplin, walked the sea front and departed this jewel oblivious to the fact that Waterville’s second expanse of water (Lough Currane) is only a mere “stones throw” behind them.

Waterville is unique in the fact that it is the only village on the Ring of Kerry that is actually right on the coast (you can taste the salt water on the main street on a calm day) and sandwiched on a strip of ground between lake and ocean.

Sneem

The picturesque village of Sneem is situated midway between Kenmare and Waterville on the northern side of Kenmare Bay on the Ring of Kerry.

The village is immaculately kept with its traditional buildings, pubs, restaurants and craft shops, painted in an array of beautiful colours. It is a past winner of the “tidy towns of Ireland” competition.

Moll's Gap & Ladies View

Moll’s Gap is named for Moll Kissane, an ancestor of John Kissane who is running the farm now. She ran a small pub (or sibin) here during the construction of the Killarney – Kenmare road in the 1820’s. In her time, Moll Kissane was popular for her illicit home-made poitin or whiskey, which she sold in her sibin.

Ladies View is one of Irelands best known panoramas. This spot derives its name from the pleasure expressed by Queen Victoria’s Ladies-in-Waiting on their visit here in 1861. At Ladies View you will find Ladies View Industries which comprises of a Gift Shop, Cafe and Bar.
