Pure essence irish

The Ring of Kerry is a motorway route that marks the perimeter of the Iveragh Peninsula through a series of magnificent landscapes. The name "ring" refers exactly to its circular shape, which allows to return to the same starting points. The road starts from Killarney and through other towns including the precious Kenmare. The route is 170 km long course, since you can move from any point in any direction, but the authorities in charge of tourism in this area ask to travel counter-clockwise around the Ring of Kerry to minimize traffic problems on sections of the road is very narrow. They also organized the comfortable tour bus from Killarney. In addition to nature and all the activities related to it (biking, hiking, fishing, etc.), the Ring of Kerry provides an overview of the extraordinary Irish heritage - including strong Iron Age and Ogham stones, old monasteries and lunar landscapes dating back to the Ice Age 10,000 years ago. One piece of advice I can give on this route is not in a hurry to finish it. Take some time to observe, to stop and gaze at this enchanted landscape. It is also not advisable to go too fast so as not to invest in solitary and sheep roam freely in this area. But do not be fooled! are extremely wary and do not let themselves get close. Here is a list of all the exciting places to see along the Ring of Kerry: ' http://www.ringofkerrytourism.com/ring-of-kerry-attractions.html' We were in Staigue Fort Ston, which is a strong thought to have been built during the late Iron Age, probably between 300 and 400 AD, as a bastion of defense for a local lord or king. Obviously these superficially is just a ruin, but if we let go of this place will be revealed in all its beauty and power. It 'an incredible place of reflection, we have been strong for a long time sitting on the scanning sky, hills and sea, in silence, lulled by the wind.

Pura essenza irlandese

Il Ring of Kerry è un percorso autostradale che segna il perimetro della penisola di Iveragh attraversando una serie di scenari paesaggistici magnifici. Il nome "ring" si riferisce esattamente alla sua forma circolare, che permette di tornare allo stesso punti di partenza. La strada inizia da Killarney e attraversa altre cittadine tra cui la preziosa Kenmare. Tutto il percorso è lungo 170 Km. Ovviamente essendo circolare si può partire da qualsiasi punto in qualsiasi direzione, ma l'autorità che si occupa del turismo in questa zona chiede di viaggiare in senso antiorario intorno al Ring of Kerry per minimizzare i problemi di traffico sui tratti di strada molto stretta. Vengono anche organizzati dei comodi tour con bus da Killarney.
Oltre alla natura incontaminata e a tutte le attività ad essa correlata (biking, trekking, pesca etc), il Ring of Kerry offre una panoramica straordinaria sul patrimonio storico irlandese - tra cui forti dell'età del ferro e pietre Ogham, vecchi monasteri e paesaggi lunari risalenti alla glaciazione di 10.000 anni fa.
Un consiglio che posso dare su questo percorso è di non avere fretta di concluderlo. Prendetevi del tempo per osservare, per sostare e rimirare questo paesaggio incantato. Inoltre non è consigliabile andare troppo veloce anche per non investire le pecore che girano liberamente e solitariamente in questo territorio. Non illudetevi però! sono estremamente diffidenti e non si lasciano avvicinare.
Qui c'è una lista di tutti i siti interessanti da vedere percorrendo il Ring of Kerry: ' http://www.ringofkerrytourism.com/ring-of-kerry-attractions.html'
Noi siamo stati alla Staigue Ston Fort, un forte che si pensa sia stato costruito durante la tarda età del Ferro, probabilmente tra il 300 e il 400 dC, come una roccaforte di difesa per un signore o Re locale. Ovviamente vista superficialmente è solo una rovina, ma se ci lasciamo andare questo posto si rivelerà in tutta la sua bellezza e potenza. E' un incredibile luogo di riflessione, noi siamo stati a lungo seduti sul forte scrutando cielo, colline e mare, in silenzio, cullati dal vento.

One of the best views in ireland

This is one of the days when we did more kilometers by car during our two-week visit in Ireland, so it is recommended to leave early to take advantage of the maximum. The Ring of Kerry is one of the most famous tours of the country. It is a road that gives a panoramic Iveragh peninsula to return. The road passes through mountains, coastal areas, fishing villages and has, neither more nor less than 180 km! In addition, if want to see still more incredible landscapes, there is an extension of about 30 km ms that runs along the Skellig Ring, where Podis have better views of the Skellig Islands. This is one of the points hubiramos Ireland where we stayed for a week to find out in detail, but as tenamos only one day, we had to select only a few points to stop and see. We started from Killarney and drove around the north coast of the peninsula to the west. We avoid stopping in towns, as habamos already seen in the previous few days and concentrate on enjoying the scenery. For example, we stopped at a beach near Glenbeigh and went in the Skellig Ring, the cliffs of Portmagee, where the Skellig Islands, one of the last places where the movie Star Wars grab look. After we stopped at Ballinskelligs beach and walk to a ruined church with an abandoned cemetery. We stopped also in Waterville, Chaplin summer resort town, to make us a picture memorial statue. And along the south coast to the west, we headed Kenmare to climb to Molls Gap and to see through Killarney Lakes Ladies View. When we arrived in Beaufort, where estbamos staying, we could not stand up (but tenamos a smile from ear to ear).

Una de las mejores visitas en irlanda

Este es uno de los días en que hicimos más kilómetros en coche durante nuestra visita de dos semanas en Irlanda, por lo que se recomienda salir pronto para aprovecharlo al máximo.

El anillo de Kerry es una de las excursiones más famosas del país. Se trata de una carretera que da una vuelta panorámica a la península de Iveragh. La carretera transcurre por montañas, zonas costeras, pueblos de pescadores… ¡y tiene, ni más ni menos, 180 km!

Además, si queréis ver paisajes todavía más increíbles, hay una extensión de unos 30 km más que recorre el Skellig Ring, desde donde podéis tener mejores vistas de las islas Skellig.

Este es uno de los puntos de Irlanda donde nos hubiéramos quedado una semana para descubrirlo al detalle, pero como sólo teníamos un día, tuvimos que seleccionar sólo algunos puntos para parar y ver.

Nosotros empezamos desde Killarney y recorrimos la costa norte de la península hacia el oeste. Evitamos parar en pueblos, ya que ya habíamos visto unos cuantos en los días previos y nos concentramos en disfrutar de los paisajes. Por ejemplo, paramos en una playa cerca de Glenbeigh y fuimos, en el Skellig Ring, a los acantilados de Portmagee, desde donde se veían las Skellig Islands, uno de los lugares donde se grabó la última película de Star Wars. Después paramos en la playa de Ballinskelligs y andamos hasta una iglesia en ruinas con un cementerio abandonado. Paramos también en Waterville, pueblo donde veraneaba Chaplin, para hacernos una foto con su estatua conmemorativa. Y ya por la costa sur hacia el oeste, nos dirigimos hacia Kenmare para subir hacia Moll’s Gap y poder ver los Lagos de Killarney pasando por Ladies View.

Cuando llegamos a Beaufort, lugar donde estábamos hospedados, no nos aguantabamos de pie (pero teníamos una sonrisa de oreja a oreja).

Magnificent tour

It is a tourist circuit located in County Kerry, in southwest Ireland. This circuit covers 170 km of road, forming a circle that begins in Killarney, Iveragh peninsula flanking. Go through Kenmare, Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen and Killorglin, before returning to Killarney again from the south, and bordering the Lakes of Killarney and Killarney National Park. Some of its attractions include Muckross House (a mansion near Killarney), the Staigue stone fort and Derrynane House, birthplace of Daniel O'Connell. Waterville is famous for hosting for several summers to Charles Chaplin, and the people dedicated a statue that now can be seen along the beach. South of Killarney, and at the end of the Ring thus, lie Ross Castle, Killarney Lakes and Ladies View, a lookout from which, according to Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom is enjoying the best views of lakes. There are different variants of the tour of the Ring of Kerry, also depending on the means of transport. Some tours reach Bravery Island and Skellig Islands. The Ring is an excursion not unusual, for one day, for the many visitors who come to Ireland, and specifically to Killarney in summer. Bus circuits are always made in a counter-clockwise direction, to avoid that two of them may cross the narrow roads which make up the ring.

Magnífico recorrido

Se trata de un circuito turístico situado en el Condado de Kerry, en el suroeste de Irlanda. Este circuito cubre 170 km de carretera, formando un círculo que comienza en Killarney, flanqueando la península de Iveragh. Pasa por Kenmare, Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen y Killorglin, antes de volver a Killarney nuevamente desde el sur, y bordeando los Lagos de Killarney y el Parque Nacional de Killarney.
Algunos de sus atractivos turísticos son Muckross House (una mansión cerca de Killarney), el fuerte de piedra de Staigue y Derrynane House, casa natal de Daniel O'Connell. Waterville es famosa por haber albergado durante varios veranos a Charles Chaplin, y el pueblo le dedicó una estatua que ahora puede observarse junto a la playa. Al sur de Killarney, y al final por lo tanto del Anillo, se sitúan el Castillo de Ross, los Lagos de Killarney y Ladies View, un mirador desde el que, según la reina Victoria I del Reino Unido se disfrutaba de las mejores vistas sobre los lagos.
Existen distintas variantes del tour por el Anillo de Kerry, dependiendo también del medio de transporte elegido. Algunas excursiones llegan hasta Isla de Valentía y las Islas Skellig. El Anillo es una excursión bastante habitual, de un día de duración, para los numerosos visitantes que acuden a Irlanda, y en concreto a Killarney, en verano. Los circuitos en autobús se realizan siempre en sentido contrario a las agujas del reloj, para evitar que dos de ellos se crucen en las estrechas carreteras que componen el anillo.

Road trip in the south west

The Ring of Kerry ("Ring of Kerry") is a great way not to be missed, which is a loop of 180 km around the Lakes of Killarney, in the South West part of the country. The ideal is to have a car, so you can plan your steps in the region (although tourist bus trips are organized). There is also a parallel walking tour, the "Kerry Way", a little longer. The Ring of Kerry winds along the coast, where the landscapes between mountain and sea are stunning. The road is littered with views (such as "Ladies View") and it is possible to stop the night in charming port cities (such Caherciveen). The complete tour takes about a day, but two or three days are recommended if you want to stop in various notable places (and increase your chances of having a nice day and therefore incomparable views!). It is also advisable to avoid the summer, because the roads are narrow and crowded so quickly ...

Road trip dans le sud ouest

Le Ring of Kerry ("l'anneau du Kerry") est une magnifique route à ne pas manquer, qui fait une boucle de 180 km, entourant les Lacs de Killarney, dans la partie Sud Ouest du pays. L'idéal est d'avoir une voiture, afin de pouvoir programmer vos différentes étapes dans la région (bien que des trajets en bus touristiques soient organisés). Il existe également un circuit pédestre parallèle, le "Kerry Way", un peu plus long. Le Ring of Kerry serpente le long des côtes, où les paysages entre montagne et mer sont époustouflants. La route est jalonnée de points de vue (comme le "Ladies View") et il est possible de s'arrêter la nuit dans de charmantes villes portuaires (telle Caherciveen). Le tour complet prend environ une journée mais deux ou trois jours sont conseillés si vous souhaitez vous arrêter dans différents lieux remarquables (et augmenter vos chances d'avoir un jour de beau temps et donc une vue incomparable!). Il est également conseillé d'éviter la période estivale, car les routes sont étroites et donc rapidement encombrées...

Ring of kerry

The Ring of Kerry is a collection of villages, views, natural curiosities in the southwest of Ireland. It is said that "Ring of Kerry" (French translation of the original name) began to Killarney through different villages. We traveled on foot, by Kerry Way, either by car on its own, or by organized excursions for the day. If possible, go on a day when the weather is clear, if the view is not always clear!

Ring of kerry

Le Ring of Kerry est un ensemble de villages, de points de vue, de curiosités naturelles dans le sud-ouest de l'Irlande. On dit que "l'anneau du Kerry"(traduction française du nom original) commence à Killarney pour traverser différents villages. On le parcourt soit à pied, par la Kerry Way, soit en voiture par ses propres moyens, soit encore en excursions organisées à la journée. Si possible, y aller une journée où le temps est dégagé, sinon la vue n'est pas toujours très claire!
