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

2. 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.

Finally, head for County Kerry and the windswept Dingle Peninsula, a stronghold of Irish culture and language, where you will be staying in the town of Dingle for the next two nights. Day 2 Today, find out why the Wild Atlantic Way is known as one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world in the Dingle Peninsula.

What people are saying about Killarney

this tour is actually one of the best I have so far in Ireland, John was an amazing guide he loves what he does and it shows. the views where breathtakingly beautiful. The atmosphere in the bus was lively as John did his best to keep us all entertained. all the stops we made was memorable ✨️ I strongly recommend this this company. Plus its a great price for such an experience

Pick this tour if you want to see stunning mountain, countryside, lake and coastal scenery, try Irish coffee, home-made ice-cream, and seafood! Yes it's a long day by coach but there are plenty of stops and most of them are very photogenic! Would recommend. We were also lucky with the sunny and dry weather but obviously that's not always guaranteed!

It was a wonderful tour with some spectacular places. The driver started off on the grumpy side but was fine in the end, even if his history of Ireland was a little partial. The bus was comfortable and we stopped plenty of times.

Lengthy and enjoyable tour! D J was funny and gave us many opportunities for good pics and breaks. Saw a lot of beautiful Ireland!!

Amazing day trip especially when you are lucky with the weather as we had.
