This is a marvellous combination to include a full day tour of the Ring of Kerry and a short two hour Guided Walk in the Killarney National Park operated on consecutive dates.
The Iveragh Peninsula which contains Ireland’s most spectacular mountain road – the Ring of Kerry – is situated in the south west corner of Ireland. Over the centuries the Ring of Kerry has been the inspiration of poets and writers because of its magnificent coastal scenery and rugged countryside. Join with us on our motorcoach tour of this enchanting peninsula and share in its history, geography, culture, stories and folklore.
The Ring of Kerry is usually done in an anti-clockwise direction departung Killarney and travelling along the banks of the River Laune to Killorglin, via Glenbeigh, Kells, Caherciveen and the southern shores of Dingle Bay. The tour continues to Waterville and along the coast via Coomakista Pass and Derrynane and on to Sneem. From Sneem we travel up the mountain road to Molls Gap, then via Ladies’View and back to Killarney. Our guides are knowledgeable, friendly and always willing to share a joke with you. It’s an experience we hope you will treasure for many years to come.
