Top Gear presenters Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc spent a weekend filming in Kerry, Ireland in April, for part of the famous BBC motoring show. The programme took place at some of Ireland’s top attractions, including Ladies View and the dramatic panorama of the Killarney Lakes. During their time on the Emerald Isle, the two presenters were blown away by the famous Wild Atlantic Way driving route – with Chris Evans describing his Kerry experience on Twitter as the “Best road I’ve ever driven on” and Matt LeBlanc tweeting “Looks like an awesome drive”.

If Top Gear got your engine running why not recreate the epic road trip with a two day Ring of Kerry driving itinerary. A circular loop that pairs overwhelming natural beauty with immersive heritage attractions, the Ring of Kerry is a jewel in the Kingdom of Kerry’s crown. Along this 179km route you will pass through vast glacial valleys (Moll’s Gap), towns adored by comedy legends (Waterville), a UNESCO World Heritage site, and drive along one of the most photographed coasts on the entire island. Take inspiration from Top Gear and take off on a trip peppered with National Parks, quaint villages and Atlantic views that will take your breath away.
