Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle

Our story began in 1982 when a group from Killarney had an idea- to cycle the 170-kilometre ‘Ring of Kerry’ to raise money for charity.

41 years later, that vision hasn’t changed. Our story has. Today, the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle brings together 8,000 participants each year, making it Ireland’s largest one-day charity event. Together, we’ve raised almost €18.3 million for 160 charity organisations who make a powerful difference for people in need across our communities.

More than a One-Day Event
The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle is a more than a one-day cycling event. It’s about everyday people coming together and giving generously of their time to participate, to fundraise and to get involved. It’s this special sense of community spirit that makes the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle experience stand out.

Life Changing Impact
Every year, we open up an application process and carefully select a number of charities that will receive funds raised from the event. Much of the good work of these charities would simply not be possible without our support. To date, funds raised have contributed towards new hospital extensions, special needs facilities, care for the elderly, suicide prevention, sea and mountain rescue, cancer, kidney and end of life support and much more.

Experiencing ‘The Ring’
Cycling the Ring of Kerry is a remarkable accomplishment and a unique lifetime experience. The cycle is not competitive. It’s recreational. It’s this spirit of camaraderie, fun and friendship that makes the event stand out.
