The Ring of Kerry

Martyn Goddard

"The rasp of the 1965 Austin-Healey's exhaust echoed from the granite cliffs near Coomakista Pass, our senses stimulated by the sounds and aromas of the wild coast."

179 kilometers (111 miles)
100 KPH (62 MPH)/ 80 KPH (50 MPH) on side roads
N 51˚ 56' 20" latitude/W 9˚ 39' 32"longitude

Martyn Goddard, whose Austin-Healey is pictured above, has some tips for those exploring the Ring of Kerry: "Start at Molls Gap. Drive the ring counterclockwise. Bring wet-weather gear. Less congested, more challenging roads like Healy Pass aren't far away. Beware, however, that some of them are extremely narrow."
