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.

Stephen was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We have been touring Ireland in our own car so taking a commercial tour was a nice break from driving. All the stops were nice. Very picturesque. The bus fit about 18 or 20 passengers so it was not one of the really big buses. Really liked that. In Cahersiveen it was a Sunday and shops and the like we're closed so we strolled to the marina and enjoyed a snack we brought with. We did not get to actually stop at Ladies View because it was very busy and very little parking for buses. We stopped shortly before and had great views from there. We did get to stop at Torc Waterfalls which was very nice. The sky cleared up and we had the sunniest day in weeks so we thoroughly enjoyed all of our stops.

Very good tour of the ring of Kerry. I now know why they call it the “Kingdom” magnificent scenery, and the driver Kevin was very knowledgeable in local history. He was also a very funny man, who accommodated everyone without hesitation. A very good experience, and everyone went home happy.

Great to be driven around the Ring of Kerry. Not sure I’d be keen to drive myself .. to distracted by the scenery. Driver explained history, local sights, day was long but well spaced with stops and venues. We had a ckk look eat day and saw heaps … Irish luck!

Great sights to see along the Ring of Kerry. Absolutely gorgeous. Dennis was our driver and guide and he was fantastic. He had stories to tell the whole trip and fun facts about every area we drove through. It’s a long day, but worth the trip for sure.

Fantastic trip and Denis our guide was just brilliant. Seen so many sights and heard so many stories fact and fiction, right from the pick up. Would highly recommend.
