Killarney & the Ring of Kerry

Killarney & the Ring of Kerry

Join us for 5 days of breathtaking scenery.

Killarney & Ring of Kerry

 

As a result of its lakes and idyllic scenery, Killarney was the first place in Europe to owe its existence almost entirely to tourism, yet it has retained all its charm and connection with its heritage.  Killarney boasts something for everyone – if you’re a person who likes to stay active, observe nature or hit the shops.  Included on this tour is a tour of the Ring of Kerry – a 179km coastal route that highlights the stunning scenery of Ireland at its best – soaring mountains, windswept beaches and rugged cliffs not to mention the living history and diverse wildlife. Tralee itself is most definitely a place worth exploring during your free time, with plenty of attractions, rich history to delve into and amazing views, not to mention great places to stop and eat.

Day 1

After collecting you from your joining point, we will head to Holyhead for our ferry over to Ireland, arriving at the hotel in plenty of time for you to unpack before the evening meal.

Day 2

Today, we take in the scenery and picturesque fishing villages on part of the Ring of Kerry. Stretching west from the stunning town of Kenmare, this 110-mile circular route around the sublimely beautiful Iveragh Peninsula takes in a mix of breath-taking views and charming towns, rugged forest landscapes, tumbling waterfalls and the raging waters of the Atlantic. You will cross the magnificent Coomakista Pass, with its views of the Kenmare River, see Macgillycuddy's Reeks from Molls Gap and catch sight of the monastic marvel of Skellig Michael out in the Atlantic. You'll also have the chance to explore Cahersiveen and pretty Waterville.

Day 3

Today, we will make our way to the beautiful Lough Leane for some free time around the visitor centre, you can take an optional lake cruise, which offers a scenic tour on Lake Leane, Killarney's largest and most picturesque lake, with heritage attractions including O'Sullivan Cascade and the monastic ruins of Inishfallen Island. We then make our way to Killarney for the rest of the day to explore this beautiful Irish market town.

Day 4

Today, we will give you a free day around the wonderful Tralee, the capital of the Kingdom of Kerry. Packed with independent shops and restaurants, you can relax around the town and explore at your own pace.

Day 5

Unfortunately, we must make our way back to England, we will head to the ferry port for our return crossing. After we disembark, we will then make our way back to your drop-off points.
