The Ring of Skelligs is in my personal opinion a lot more scenic and interesting than the moch more popular "Ring of Kerry". Not far from the village of Waterville you have to leave the road of the " Ring of Kerry " and go on driving a rather narrow road ( restricted to small cars with less than 3,5 tons ONLY )
You will see some great views of the Skelligs in a distance and you will see also this small water-castle - most probably you will be the only tourist-car there, as most of the tourists simply rush through the big Ring of Kerry !
Watch out for the signpost "Ring of Skellig" at Waterville in order not to miss this really scenic road !
