The Kerry Film Festival is one of the few international film gatherings whose key honour is devoted to outstanding achievement of women in cinema. Previous recipients of the Maureen O'Hara Award include Brenda Fricker and Juliette Binoche.
In a brief statement in Tralee after the presentation on Saturday, Ronan said the award had been "an honour".
"I had a wonderful time at the Kerry Film Festival. It was a real honour to receive the Maureen O'Hara Award and I'm delighted I got a chance to meet some of the talented filmmakers at the event," Ronan said.
"I hope to come back again soon."
The festival continues in the county, travelling to Listowel tomorrow, Kenmare on Thursday, and Waterville on Oct 25.
