Kenmare Experience

On the Ring of Kerry

With majestic mountains, pretty streets lined with charming restaurants and the still waters of Kenmare Bay, Kenmare is a jewel on the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way.

The town itself lies at the convergence of three celebrated tourist trails - The Ring of Kerry, The Ring of Beara, and the Wild Atlantic Way. The Ring of Kerry tour is a 180km loop of the beautiful Iveragh Peninsula, with its historical landmarks, sandy beaches, and epic mountains, and taking in Killarney, Cahersiveen, Waterville, and Sneem until you arrive back in Kenmare.
