Where to go with your Kerry Airport car hire
The Ring of Kerry is a ready-made tourist attraction, a self-drive tour that guides you across the extraordinary beauty of the county, stopping at numerous historic, scenic and adventure attractions along the way. See the Ogham Stones between the Gap of Dunloe and Beaufort Village, where the earliest writing system in Ireland is still visible as strokes cut into the rock. Stop at Ross Castle, the Skellig Michael and Muckross House, then appreciate the natural scenery at Ladies View and Torc Waterfall. Drivers are suggested to travel anti-clockwise in order to avoid congestion on the sometimes narrow roads.
A second self-drive tour on the Dingle Peninsula offers an alternative route around the region. Taking around a day to complete, the figure-eight loop visits Slea Head, Dingle town and the Connor Pass, much of which contains ancient ruins and forts. The area is Europe’s most western point, with wonderful and wild ocean views. Both this tour and the Ring of Kerry drive start and finish in Killarney.
The Killarney National Park is another local treasure, situated just out of Killarney Town and boasting even more gorgeous scenery. The MacGillycuddy’s Reeks make up Ireland’s highest mountain range, there are the three famous Lakes of Killarney, and with 10,000 hectares of parkland more hikes and walking trails than you could possibly fit into one visit.
Find your Ireland car hire company in the long-term car park, just a minute away from the main terminal. You will be able to pick up your rental quickly and head out onto the road, where it’s less than 20 minutes to Killarney, or 20 minutes to Tralee.
In case you are willing to discover more of Ireland, you could go walk the famous Cliffs of Moher or explore the beautiful Cork. Dublin and Galway are also cities worth discovering.
