1. Ring of Kerry
Here's one of the top places to visit in Ireland! Make a drive around the circumference of County Kerry in Southern Ireland. Since there is no railing and much of this drive is on the side of a cliff and you have to remember to drive on the opposite end it’s a very wise idea to rent a driver. Now, add to this the tour buses that drive coming from the opposite way. Either hire a driver or take a tour bus. It’s 120 miles around with a lot of stops. The view is like no other. To get an understanding, watch Rick Steves’ South Ireland: Waterford to the Ring of Kerry. When you see those beautiful, green aerial views of Ireland this is exactly what you’re looking at. There are no words to describe the beauty.
