    We had a great driver, Paul. We departed Limerick around 7:55 & arrived in Killarney at the Outlet Center around 9:30. We walked around the town, and had coffee & used the toilets at the Outlet Center while waiting for 2 buses from Dublin & Cork to arrive (& also people from Killarney). The tour officially started at 11:00. People doing the Ring of Kerry tour departed in two buses & people doing the Dingle tour were on Paul's bus. We made several brief stops at scenic points for photos. We made 20-minute stops at Inch Beach & at the BeeHive Huts (which cost extra to see up close, but you could take photos from the road). We stopped for lunch in Dingle from 2:30-4 & then returned to Killarney to meet the other buses around 5:30 & get people back on the bus they arrived on. We got back to Limerick around 7:00 that evening. The only problem we had was after we left Inch Beach (1st stop) around 12:15, it was more than 2 hours before we had a chance to use the toilets again (in Dingle).
