The Ring of the Reeks cycling routes is a demanding but beautiful 110km (full day) loop cycle on the rural roads surrounding Ireland's highest mountains, the MacGillicuddy Reeks near Killarney, Co. Kerry in the south west of Ireland and near the Wild Atlantic Way coastal scenic route. The cycle route takes in some of the best scenery, great tourists attractions, rewarding climbs and some of the most remote countryside in Ireland. Much of the route is on rural roads with much less traffic than its busy neighbour, The Ring of Kerry, which makes the cycle journey very enjoyable. The route takes in some of the best scenic tourist routes in Ireland, such as Moll’s Gap and Ballaghbeama Gap but on a bike you get to enjoy the views for longer.
