From Cork: 9-Hour Guided Ring of Kerry and Killarney Tour

1. From Cork: 9-Hour Guided Ring of Kerry and Killarney Tour

Take a 9-hour guided bus tour of the enchanting county of Kerry and admire magnificent scenery from soaring hills to rolling landscapes scattered with traditional stone walls. Enjoy the unsurpassed, rugged coastline and the buzz of the traditional town of Killarney. Board your bus at the meeting point in Cork, then feel Irish rural life from days gone by coming alive at your first stop at the Kerry Bog Village in Glenbeigh. Wander through thatched cottages, visit a traditional farmhouse, and meet the resident Irish wolfhounds. You might even choose to treat yourself to a little something to drink at the Red Fox Inn. From Glenbeigh, travel around the Iveragh Peninsula, along the most beautiful stretch of coastline. The next stops are at Waterville and Coomakista, two of Kerry’s most scenic spots with panoramic views stretching from the mountains to the sea. Look toward the ocean and catch a glimpse of the iconic Skellig Islands, Celtic pyramids reaching out from the sea. These natural monuments were famously featured in the recent Star Wars movie. Make your next stop on the famous Ring of Kerry in Sneem, a picturesque Irish seaside village nestled in the sheltered waters of Kenmare Bay with wonderful choices for a traditional Irish lunch. Choose bacon and cabbage — an Irish staple — or, since you are beside the sea, freshly-caught fish served with chips. Lunch is at your own expense. After the lunch stop, prepare for a drive you will never forget. Verging deep into the MacGillycuddy's Reek mountains and the moody Black Valley, numerous scenic viewpoints can be found along the route: Moll’s Gap mountain pass, Ladies View lookout (a favorite spot of Queen Victoria), and even a Leprechaun crossing. Along the shores of Lough Leane, drive through the woodlands of Ireland’s last native oak trees. Then, arrive in Killarney, often voted the most beautiful town in Ireland. Killarney has so much to offer. Opt to spend your time seeing the surrounding area from a traditional horse and cart or walk the streets soaking up the atmosphere. Finally, hop back on the bus for the return journey to Cork where you will be dropped off at the starting point.

Pat was an excellent guide and driver. He shared many interesting tidbits of local history. We enjoyed the breathtaking views. The tour offered ample stops for exploring, shopping, food, and toilets. In October on a Sunday, some shops and pubs were closed but there were plenty open to accommodate our group of 15. We liked the smaller tour size. Would definitely book with them again.

John was a fantastic guide and shared so much information on this tour. You felt like he was just conversing as a friend pointing out so many things along the way. The size of the coach was very comfortable with only 12 on board. We thoroughly enjoyed this full day around the ring of Kerry.

William, our guide was AMAZING! His grand Irish personality, humour, and wonderful singing voice added so much more to our experience. He answered all our questions and provided excellent information along our travels.

This was a great tour. Good value for money, and our driver John was wonderful. He was informative and entertaining, and provided excellent recommendations for other activities and sights.

We had a great time. The one thing I would recommend would be to go a different day than Sunday. Most small shops were closed at the different stops along the way.
