Derryclare is easy to find, but we recommend using an old-fashioned paper map. The Eircode is V23 D920 but do not rely on Google Maps as they will take you over very narrow mountain passes.
Approximately halfway between Waterville and Caherdaniel you will come to The Scarriff Inn, a large grey pub, standing on its own. Just beside the pub is a road down to the harbour, with signs for the Wild Atlantic Way and trips to the Skelligs: the sign has a picture of a boat and a wavy blue W.
Follow these signs for trips to the Skelligs and take this road all the way to the bottom, following the road around the hairpin bends down the hill – you are aiming for the harbour.
Near the bottom of the hill, at a hairpin bend where you’ll see a green mobile home behind a wooden fence, turn left and continue your journey down the hill. Derryclare is the second house on the right after this bend: it is a white bungalow with blue windows and a white gate, situated on a left-hand bend in the road.
Directions from Shannon or Dublin
Take the motorway to Limerick, then the M20 to Adare, then the N21 to Newcastle West and Farranfore. In Farranfore, turn right for Killorglin, Glenbeigh, Caherciveen and Waterville (N70). This is the Ring of Kerry. We are five miles beyond Waterville. At the Scarriff Inn, follow the directions above.
Directions from Cork
Take the N22 to Killarney via Macroom. Having crossed the border between Cork and Kerry, and driven down a steep, wide hill, turn left for Kilgarvan and Kenmare (R569) – there is no need to go into Killarney. Drive through Kenmare, following signs for Sneem, Castlecove, Caherdaniel and Waterville on the N70, taking the road left immediately after a Centra shop and garage on the right. This is the Ring of Kerry, and we are three miles beyond Caherdaniel village – look out for the Scarriff Inn and take the road to the left immediately in front of the pub. From here, follow the directions above.
Directions from Killarney
Killarney is on the north eastern corner of the Ring of Kerry, and we are exactly half way round the Ring, on the south west. You can either go clockwise via Killarney, Muckross, through the national park, Moll’s Gap, Sneem, Caherdaniel or anti-clockwise via Killorglin, Caherciveen, Waterville. Coaches drive round the Ring in an anti-clockwise direction, leaving Killarney at 11 and arriving back at about 5. If you’re leaving Killarney between 12 and 5, we recommend taking the anti-clockwise route via Killorglin.
