A long day, but worth it if you want to get a trip to the southwest and to see the Ring of Kerry in during a visit to Dublin. Weather and time of year probably makes a difference. We had a nice day in early October, and it was lovely.

This was my favorite day trip I did while in Ireland. The views were amazing and the tour was run very well. I also had the best tour guide of my entire trip. Bartholomew was so much fun. He entertained us with song, poetry and a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend this tour.
