Ireland’s Southwest

The Ring of Kerry is one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. It’s a 179km/111 mile long looped route in the south-west of County Kerry and something of a must-see if you’re in the area. As for the highlights on the Ring?


Kilorglin has got to be up there. As well as being a cute village, Kilorglin is home to the Puck Fair, a centuries-old festival where a goat is crowned king for three days. Yes, a goat! But it’s more than that. There’s music sessions, activities and street parties, too.
