Ring of Kerry

This scenic and little-travelled 30 km route has been named best in Travel 2017 by lonely planet. This route takes you to my homeland of St Finans Bay, Portmagee, Valentia Island and Waterville via a Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) area centred on Ballinskelligs (Baile an Sceilg).
The Skellig Ring is a coastal drive through the unspoiled Iveragh Penninsula.

I would like to share with you this area with it's rugged beauty, it's people and its panoramic views of Skellig Michael. This island housed a remote monastery between the 6th and 12th centuries and is now an important site for puffins, gannets. After a long serach Star Wars found this beautiful place to film Star Wars V11. The Force Awakens . On the Skellig Ring you'll find historic Sites, walking trails and a history that takes in ancient vertebrates and the transatlantic telegraph. It's a place of rare beauty on the Wild Atlantic Way.
