Visited here recently. It wasn't great. Not a great selection for gluten free. Staff abit abrupt. Cleaned under our table while we were eating. Not a great atmosphere.

We had a private driver tour, we weren't rushed took all day. Our driver could take us places that the big tour buses couldn't go because of the narrow roadways. The only way to properly do the Ring of Kerry.

Hi, It's all a great adventure, but the day from Sneem to Kenmare is long and tiring so you could consider avoiding that section. All sections will be very tough if you strike heavy rain. You can download a series of maps... More
