Short Description

The Iveragh Peninsula is a stunning region of islands. With Killarney at its epicentre, it is the largest of the 'five fingers' of Ireland, better known as the Ring of Kerry. Mystical, beautiful and grand, the route is also a tourist hotspot, so can be a little unkind to cyclists. Our routes maintain the same beauty and splendour but take you off the path to enjoy a more leisurely and quieter mix of inland and coastal scenery.Cycle a mix of inland and coastal routes close to the famous Ring of Kerry.

Itinerary



Land Only

Day 1 *Arrive in Killarney*

Check into your B&B and then explore the town, choosing from one of its many restaurants for dinner or enjoying some live music. *(Staying at the Killarney Lodge)*

Day 2 KILLARNEY TO GLENBEIGH

Leaving Killarney behind, you'll follow the Fossa Way cycle route, before heading on small country roads as you slowly climb up to the pretty Lough Acoose, below the peak of Carrauntuohill, Ireland's highest mountain. Descending, you'll cycle along the shores of Lough Caragh and on to charming Glenbeigh and its blue flag beach. If you have time, pedal down to Rossbeigh Strand and dip your toes in the Atlantic. *(Staying at the Towers Hotel)*

Day 3 GLENBEIGH TO CAHERSIVEEN

You'll follow the route of the coast today, passing small farms and on to the beautiful and peaceful shores of Kells Bay. Heading along a scenic narrow road fringed by large green meadows and peaks in the distance, a circular loop at the end takes you past Ballycarbery Castle and a wonderful seaside view and two early Christian stone forts. You'll arrive in the lively town of Cahersiveen, the birthplace of Daniel O'Connell, the Irish political leader (1775-1847). *(Staying at the Ring of Kerry Hotel)*

Day 4 CAHERSIVEEN TO BLACKSTONES BRIDGE

Leaving Cahersiveen on the old road you'll pass the ruins of Daniel O'Connell's birth home, before heading back inland where you'll see ruined abbeys and ancient graveyards. After a short descent, a climb up and over the stunning Ballaghasheen Pass will reward you with views back to Killarney and Ireland's highest mountain. A long descent on narrow roads alongside a gushing river takes you to Blackstones Bridge and your quirky and welcoming B&B for the night. *(Staying at the Blackstones House)*

Day 5 BLACKSTONES BRIDGE TO KENMARE

Another stunning rural ride today as you head up and over the spectacular Ballaghbeama Gap; you are more likely to encounter sheep on the roads than vehicles. The road takes you through boulder-strewn countryside, cycling by small lakes, following the Blackwater River. Your day finishes in the beautiful town of Kenmare, also called 'the gateway to Kerry', and your luxury guesthouse for the night. *(Staying at Rockcrest House, B&B)*

Day 6 KENMARE TO KILLARNEY

As final bike rides go, they don't get much better than this. You'll cycle to Moll's Gap - a panoramic spot that reaches a summit of 860 feet - and continue to the Black Valley. This is one of the last remaining areas of Ireland that is still remote and untouched; with rich fertile meadows and a roaring river, it feels like a land that time forgot. From here you'll climb to one of the most beautiful places in Ireland, the Gap of Dunloe, which was created during the Ice Age. Cycling along this glaciated valley, you'll meander around the many glacial lakes dotted throughout and marvel at the sheer jagged rock faces towering above you. You'll head back into Killarney through the National Park, passing the C15 Ross Castle, before returning to your B&B for your last night (and perhaps a final Guinness). *(Staying at the Killarney Lodge)*

Day 7 LEAVE KILLARNEY

We take you to Killarney Station for your onward journey, or perhaps enjoy extra nights in Killarney to finish your trip.
