Full description

Enjoy the sights of the world-famous Ring of Kerry. You’ll see breathtaking scenery like Ireland’s highest mountain, Carrauntoohil, experience Killarney National Park, stroll through the Kerry Bog Village, and more.

The first thing you’ll see when leaving Killarney is the view over the McGillycuddy Reeks mountain range, with the famous Gap of Dunloe clearly visible, slicing into the mountain range.

From there it’s on to the Kerry Bog Village, which offers fascinating insights into how people lived and worked in Ireland in the 18th century.

You’ll stop in Cahersiveen, one of the original towns along the Ring of Kerry. One of its many attractions is the Daniel O’Connell Memorial Church, named for one of Ireland’s most important historical figures, Daniel O’Connell, often referred to as the Liberator.

The next stop is the village of Waterville, where you can enjoy a walk along the seafront while taking in the charming surroundings. Majestic viewing points offer stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. This is where the coach will stop for free time for lunch and shopping.

Learn the often tragic history of Ireland and hear folklore from qualified local guides.

Return to Killarney through the rugged Moll's Gap and take in the beauty of Killarney National Park.

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.

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.

The tour was just great! Although we couldn't go up the mountain due to a bike race, our guide John immediately came up with an alternative (Cliffs of Kerry) and in retrospect we thought it was even better. We had enough time at each stop to look at and enjoy everything in peace. John dropped us off at each photo stop to take pictures. During the drive John provided us with very interesting information about Ireland and the area. The tour is highly recommended and I would even do it again!
