The Province of Munster region

The Ring of Kerry (Irish: Mórchuaird Chiarraí) is a tourist trail in County Kerry, south-western Ireland. The route covers the 179 km circular road (N70, N71, and R562 road), starting from Killarney, heading around the Iveragh Peninsula and passing through Kenmare, Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen and Killorglin. Popular points include Muckross House (near Killarney), Staigue stone fort and Derrynane House, home of Daniel O'Connell. Just south of Killarney, Ross Castle, Lough Leane, and Ladies View (a panoramic viewpoint), all located within Killarney National Park, are major attractions located along the Ring. A more complete list of major attractions along the Ring of Kerry includes: Gap of Dunloe, Bog Village, Rossbeigh Beach, Cahersiveen Heritage Centre, Derrynane House, Skellig Experience, Staigue Fort, Kenmare Lace, Moll's Gap, Ladies View, Torc Waterfall, Muckross House, The Blue Pool, Ross Castle, Ogham Stones, St Mary's Cathedral, Muckross Abbey, Franciscan Friary, Kellegy Church, O'Connell Memorial Church, Sneem Church and Cemetery, Skellig Michael, Beehive Cells and the Stone Pillars marking an important grave.
There is also an established walking path named The Kerry Way, which takes its own route, and a signposted Ring of Kerry cycling path which uses older quieter roads where possible. The Kerry Way roughly follows the scenic driving route of the Ring of Kerry.
There are numerous variations to the route taking in St. Finian's Bay and Valentia Island which the official driving ring misses (the official cycling route takes in Valentia Island). As well as some fine beaches, it also offers the Gap of Dunloe, Bog Village, Derrynane House, the Skellig Experience Valentia Island, Molls Gap, Torc Waterfall, Muckross House and Ross Castle.
"The Ring" is a popular day trip and numerous bus companies offer trips during the summer months. As the narrow roads make it difficult for tour coaches to pass, all tour buses run in an anti-clockwise (or counter-clockwise) direction, traveling via Killorglin first. It is recommended that car owners travel in the opposite direction, going first to Kenmare to avoid delays caused by tour buses. In 2008 satellite navigation systems were blamed for directing bus drivers in a clockwise direction around the route

Waterville

Waterville is a picturesque little village overlooking stunning Ballinskelligs Bay and uniquely, nestled on the beautiful Lake Currane which is renowned for the some of the best Salmon & Sea Trout Angling in Europe
A wealth of archaeological, botanical and historical features are waiting to be discovered Waterville in west Kerry is the perfect base for the angler in pursuit of freshwater game fishing or sea fishing. With countless lakes and rivers, which are noted for their Atlantic salmon, sea trout and brown trout, as well as large storm beaches, rocky shorelines and an abundance of deep-sea marks, your biggest challenge may be choosing where to fish.

When it comes to fresh-water angling, Lough Currane is the main lake in a catchment of six lakes and nestles between the mountains and western Atlantic seashore. It's famous for its large sea trout which can exceed 10lbs. Boosting the large stocks of these migratory fish, it gets runs of large spring salmon and grilse every year. These enter the system of lakes and rivers from as early as January.
The Upper Waterville Lakes, which are set in splendid scenery, also offer excellent brown trout fishing with sea trout and salmon also a feature.
As for shore angling, you'll be spoiled for choice as there is always a sheltered mark available, regardless of the wind direction, along Kerry's magnificent coastline. Bass, flounder, wrasse and pollack are the main quarry with saltwater fly-fishing for bass, mullet and pollack also a possibility.
With a well-developed deep-sea charter fleet within 30 minutes' drive of Waterville, deep-sea angling is also popular. Numerous experienced skippers have boats for hire and will take you out to catch conger, ling, cod, skate, bullhuss, spurdog and blue shark.
And the man-made facilities in and around Waterville are just as good as the natural ones. Visitors can expect angler-friendly accommodation, bait and tackle shops, as well as excellent eateries and vibrant pubs to complete the picture of an excellent angler's destination.

Golf at Waterville is a mystical experience – the beauty of classic links land surrounded by the sea yet forever challenged and shaped by the elements. More than 100 years old, Waterville is rated among the top five courses in Ireland and the top 20 links courses in the world. The course was a noted training venue for the British Open by four past champions and combines sand dunes, gorse and native grasses, firm fairways, sod-faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces all intertwined by the ever-changing weather. Waterville Golf Links is located on the south west coast on the Ring of Kerry. The course remains open all year round, weather permitting.
