What a stunning route we have for you on this final stage of the Wild Atlantic Etape South. Heading out of Kenmare the route hugs the coastline all the way to Sneem and we begin the famous Ring of Kerry.
The scenery here is second to none with an amazing sea view waiting around every corner!
The route passes through Caherdaniel before we arrive in the village of Waterville where we’ll stop for lunch. Famous as home to one of the world’s top Links Golf courses, as well as being a favoured holiday destination of Charlie Chaplin, Waterville sits right on the ocean and offers the opportunity if the weather is good to take a quick swim at the local beach.
After lunch we head out on the Skellig Ring which offers stunning views of Skellig Michael, in the news lately as the location for the latest in the Star Wars series of Hollywood movies. We make a coffee stop at the famous Skelligs Chocolate Factory before taking on one of Ireland’s Classic Climbs, Coomanaspic.
This is a tough and steady climb but the good news when you reach the summit is that it’s a nice level ride into Cahirciveen, our base for the night.
