Fly Guy's Photography A photo tour through Ireland’s most famous circular dirve By A Fly Guy - August 4, 2013 5 1162 Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Fly Guy stops to the Ladies View over Killarney National Park. If you’re lucky to get sunshine, the summer months are the perfet time to explore the Ring of Kerry as light lasts well into the evening hours. At around 9 pm you could still find locals out enjoying the sunshine and surf on St. Finan’s Bay One of the many scenic views along the Ring of Kerry. Staigue stone fort sits on the south side of the Ring of Kerry in the middle of sheep pasture three miles west of Sneem . Mind the cow pies when out exploring. The fort was built somewhere between 300 and 400 AD Ladies View is a scenic point along the southern portion of the Ring of Kerry, in Killarney National Park. It was here that Queen Victoria was wowed by the view below in 1861 After a long day at sea exploring Skellig Michael head over to Knightstown Coffee Shop on Valentia Island to enjoy a light meal before heading back out to explore the Ring Ruins of Ballycarbery Castle built in the 16th century. The castle is located just a short drive from Cahersiveen A view of Portmagee taken from Valentia Island The beautiful peak of Skellig Michael I pulled the car over just in time to catch the sun setting over this breathtaking scene at Killarney National Park A Puffin found on Skellig Michael with Little Skellig Island in the back ground Sheep out to pasture Cahersiveen Barracks in Cahersiveen At the top of Skellig Michael sits a Christian monastery that was founded on the island at some point between the 6th and 8th century. The remains of this monastery, along with most of the island are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

If you want to visit the gap you will be told the only way to see it is by paying for a an expensive horse and buggy ride or you have to go by bike or foot. However if you wait until later in the evening like after 8:30 you can manage to drive through the gap but be ready for a very small road. Looking out the window from Ballycarbery Castle Driving yourself is the best way to see the Ring of Kerry but be ready for tight little roads like this.
