This question came from our site for literary enthusiasts and those passionate about the written word.
Frodo and Sam left the Shire the day after Bilbo Baggin's birthday, September 23 3018 TA. The destruction of the Ring at Mt Doom took place March 25 3019. So the entire journey took about 6 months. See the LotR Timeline (lordotrings.com) and Timeline of Arda (Wikipedia) for more details. Many of the dates can also be found in the appendices of LotR.
