Meet your guide in central Killarney at 10:30am and take a seat in your air-conditioned coach. Then, head out of town and along the famous Ring of Kerry — widely considered Ireland’s prettiest stretch of countryside — to begin your 6-hour tour.
Visit the Bog Village, home to traditional thatched-roof cottages, and learn of life in Ireland during the early 19th-century. Perhaps visit the museum village (own expense), and discover top attractions such as the blacksmith’s forge and turf-cutter’s house. There is also an old Irish pub where an early drink or morning coffee and scones may be enjoyed (own expense).
Continue on through villages such as Cahersiveen, Derrynane, Glenbeigh, Sneem, and Waterville, and admire sweeping views over Rossbeigh Beach and the Iveragh peninsula. Along the way, learn of famous ex-residents including Daniel O’Connell — one of the most influential politicians in Ireland’s colorful history.
After lunch (own expense), travel through rugged landscape to Molls Gap and gaze out over peaks including Carrantuohill and Macgillycuddy's Reeks. Spin through the Killarney National Park and capture the pretty Killarney Lakes on camera. Then, return in comfort to your starting point in Killarney to conclude your tour.
