A great way to really experience the atmosphere, sights and scenery of the area is cycling. A range of bicycles from leisurely hybrids to carbon road bikes can be hired at Finnegan’s Bicycle Hire at the top of Henry Street. Book in advance by e-mail or when you arrive in town.  All the cottages have an external locked storage area which can be used to safely store bikes.  For the more adventurous cyclist there are a number of beautiful circuits from 40-200kms with every distance in between, Strava has numerous routes to try with details on climbs.  The most famous cycle route is of course the Ring of Kerry, a 180kms tour of the Iveragh peninsula, is best enjoyed in early July each year when the roads are closed for cyclists.
