Going out to the Skellig Michael Rocks is a whole day alone, and you should probably stay in the Ballinskelig area for the night. Then you could spend even more time just on Valencia Island alone. However, most visitors do the whole Ring of Kerry for a day trip, starting and ending in Killarney.Whatever you choose, you are in for some spectacular scenery. If you stop in the village of Sneem, there is a Quill's Market to buy wonderful woolens and souvenirs. Also it has some nice pubs to have lunch.I find the Ring of Kerry a little milder than the Dingle Peninsula Loop. It has such a wonderful exposure to the mountains and sea that makes Ireland so famous for. Ireland is shaped like a "bowl" with the outside edges high with mountains, and the interior flatter and pastoral with hills and many lakes and bogs.If you are doing the Ring in the tourist season, you will have to plan on a longer time to complete the circle because of the numerous tour buses that meander along the long narrow roads. No passing, so you have to wait. Be prepared to pack an extra measure of patience. We did it last during the month of November so we had it all to ourselves. However, the weather was a cloudy and cold. You will love it so take some amazing photographs. Have fun!!!
