Cycle the Ring of Kerry the Wrong Way Round or the Hard Way Round at the Killarney Cycling Festival, a fun event to raise money for a great cause.

Now in its fourth year, the Killarney Cycling Festival is offering two tantalizing routes for enthusiasts of all things two-wheeled. Depart from Killarney on the Wrong Way Round and tackle Molls Gap before heading for the scenic South West via Sneem. From there, the route is familiar, passing Waterville, Cahersiveen, Glenbeigh and Killorglin.

Or take the challenge and cycle the Hard Way Round, taking a right for Ballaghbeama through the heart of Kerry to Ballaghoisin, with a detour around the stunning Skellig Ring before rejoining the main troop on the road to Cahersiveen.

Cross the finish line at the festival headquarters, the Gleneagle Hotel Killarney, where a barbecue and live entertainment will be ready and waiting.

There will be food stops dotted along the 160km and 180km routes and official festival road captains to accompany and guide you along the way.

Early bird registration open for a limited time only, with an optional extra donation which will go directly to the Donal Walsh LiveLife Foundation.

The registration fees will be used to finance the running of the event and any surplus made will also be donated to the Donal Walsh LiveLife Foundation.

Whether you’re a veteran on wheels or just looking for a little adrenaline, round off your summer with a bang the last Saturday in August.
