The Black Valley, hidden away in a remote valley in Macgillycuddy's Reeks, can be difficult to find but well worth the adventure. Considered part of the Ring of Kerry (though not directly on the Ring of Kerry route), the Black Valley is both breathtakingly scenic and beautifully tranquil; it's the perfect place to get away from crowds and traffic.
It is relatively close to Killarney, though admittedly more difficult to reach than many other areas in the Ring of Kerry. If you are coming by bus, the service that runs closest to the Black Valley area is the service from Killarney to Kenmare -- be sure that you take the bus that passes through Derrycunnihy! If you are driving, be careful in the area, since the roads are very narrow and can be rough on your car. Often roads are closed to automobile traffic during peak summer months in the Gap of Dunloe as well.
Your hostel in Black Valley is the perfect stop if you are hiking or cycling through. Be sure to either book in advance or check ahead of time before you go to make sure that they are not filled up! (It can get busy often during the summer.) There are no real places to buy any food or other provisions, so bring your own! Your Black Valley hostel will have a small shop with basic supplies, but bring your own stuff. There are wonderful hikes in the area, so bring a map and compass and hit the trails. Make sure to bring a camera! The Coomloughera Circuit is quite scenic and popular with hikers.
