Touring

SKELLIG RING

This short driving route can be done on its own or as a detour from the Ring of Kerry that takes you off the tourist track and into wilder territory.

 

Part of the Wild Atlantic Way, the route connects Waterville, Ballinskelligs, Portmagee and Valentia Island. The communities here are the westernmost in both Ireland and Europe and are so remote that the Irish language survived here after colonisation and is still spoken today by the people of the Gaeltacht.

 

The roads are quiet. The scenery is raw: rural farmlands, rocky outcrops, remote beaches, sheer cliffs and islands.
