Full description

Explore the mystical Ring of Kerry on a full-day guided tour from Cork. See the picturesque village of Waterville, Killarney National Park, panoramic views of Dingle Bay, and other famous areas of ancient Ireland.

After meeting your guide, enjoy a scenic drive to one of Ireland's most colorful and charming villages. You will see two village squares and a beautiful bridge in the village center. Pass through Killorglin, the home of the ancient Celtic festival known as the Puck Fair. 

Next, take in the amazing views of Dingle Bay, famous Inch Beach, and on a clear day, possibly even the Blasket Islands off the wild Atlantic coast.

You will admire the picturesque little village of Waterville that sits overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay and the Skellig Rocks with their early Christian monastery. Charlie Chaplin loved Waterville and was a frequent visitor. See the statue in his honor, unveiled in 1998.

Continue to the most beautiful and admired national park in Ireland, and take in the views of the Lakes of Killarney and the Black Valley during stops at Molls Gap and Leprechaun Crossing. Your next stop will be at the lovely 18-meter-high waterfall that cascades through the wooded Friar's Glenn and admires this site of natural beauty.

Finally, take some time to relax in Killarney and grab some refreshments before departing for Cork.

Wonderful trip. The landscapes are breathtaking. The panorama in Coomakista is surely the most beautiful place I have seen so far. The guide was very friendly and told several anecdotes. The bus journeys may be a bit long, but you don't feel them going by so much the landscapes are incredible. There are several stops to be able to enjoy the panoramas and take pictures. Really a great experience!

Pick this tour if you want to see stunning mountain, countryside, lake and coastal scenery, try Irish coffee, home-made ice-cream, and seafood! Yes it's a long day by coach but there are plenty of stops and most of them are very photogenic! Would recommend. We were also lucky with the sunny and dry weather but obviously that's not always guaranteed!

Was a nice tour and we had the luck to have great weather. The bus was small, but it was fine. The horse-drawn carriage in Killarney cost 14€ extra, but the driver was very funny and told us a lot about Killarney. We had a lot of stops, some were ok, some really nice. But it's a really long time just sitting in the bus.
