Clarity: The Ring of Kerry and the Kerry Way

Lough Bryn, a serene lake on the Kerry Way

I have often heard non-Irish visitors mistakenly call the “Kerry Way” the “Ring of Kerry”. I thought I should just clarify the difference. The Ring of Kerry is a road that circumvents the Iveragh Peninsula in the county of Kerry in South West Ireland. The scenery is magnificent. You can take a bus journey or drive a car around the peninsula on this road. There are multiple interesting sites to stop and visit along the way, including a bog museum, pubs specialising in Irish food and Irish coffee, souvenir shops etc etc.
