To Raise


KMs Cycled





The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle is back on the road July 2nd, 2022. 
This iconic cycling event now in it’s 40th year takes place along one of the world’s most renowned touring routes THE RING OF KERRY, a 170 KM circular route starting and ending in the beautiful town of Killarney. 
First and foremost the purpose of this event is to raise much needed funds for national and local charities. Since the inaugural cycle back in 1982 this event has raised in excess of €17.4million for 160 charity and voluntary community organisations.
So what are you waiting for? BE PART OF THIS GREAT STORY and join thousands of others in cycling the Ring of Kerry in the beautiful South West of Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way.  This is not a race and you can cycle at your own pace with time to savour the beauty that abounds here.
