A Detailed Ring Of Kerry Map with Must See Attractions

This Ring Of Kerry map will help you to plan your holiday tour in detail. The map will guide you to beautiful must-see tourist attractions in Kerry.

Which Is The Best Ring Of Kerry Map?

If you want to go touring and exploring the Ring of Kerry in detail, you need a good quality map that will show all the side roads. A lot of the tourist maps show only the main roads which is sufficient if you are not planning on leaving the main Ring of Kerry road. Also don't make the mistake to rely on phone navigation or sat nav too much. They often loose connection particularly in more remote areas. And trust me... that is where you really need them!
I like the OSI Discovery Series Maps because they show all the important details. To cover the RoK you need the maps No 78, 83 and 84. These maps are usually available in local newsagents or shops. If you want to come prepared you can order them here. OSI Discovery Series Maps are also great if you are planning on hiking or cycling in Kerry.

Particularly if you want to explore every nuke and cranny of the Ring Of Kerry you need a detailed map so you don't drive past the most interesting places. I broke down this route into three sections so you will be able to see it in more detail. You can save these maps into your Google drive if you are a Google user. You can then access the maps whenever you have an internet connection on your phone, tablet or laptop. These maps can also be printed out.
