From hilltop castles to coastal cliffs, the Ring of Kerry loops through Ireland’s most dramatic scenery. Unlike group tours with fixed schedules, this private excursion is customizable, ensuring you’ll have time for the things that interest you most. Whether you’re fascinated by the medieval Cahergall and Leacanabuiaile forts, or drawn to the picturesque villages of Sneem, Killorglin, and Cahersiveen, you'll be exploring the Ring of Kerry on your own terms.

Fantastic place and would love to give it 5 stars however the owner really let's the place down, such a pity. He really has no personality, no appreciation/thanks or any interest in his customers paying money. Suggestion...get someone else front of house!! The gardens are magnificent and really do deserve a 5 star review.

Well worth a stop to stay or to just go and see the gardens. We stayed and it was such a treat to walk down to the little beach on its doorstep. They obviously invested in very good beds, as the bed was unbelievably comfortable - best night sleep in ages.

Kells Bay Gardens are a wonderful creation, offering many beautiful corners and a wide range of different plants, arranged in a number of nooks. It takes quite a long time to visit them all but happily the map shows a short cut that enables you to break the visit, go back to the cafe for a sandwich or a delicious Thai lunch and then resume your visit. As others have commented, it is very like the pleasures of wild New Zealand, but with a different range of bird calls. The garden is now further enhanced with an array of huge tree sculptures which amused these three 60 plus sisters!!! We were greeted by Mags, who has been welcoming visitors to Kells Bay for a number of years and who looked after our every need. If you are lucky enough to stay in the beautiful house - which we weren't, as it is in huge demand - you can enjoy lovely reception rooms decorated with very appropriate pictures by some of Ireland's best female artists.

Oh my god I don’t know how we hadn’t heard about this place. It’s like being somewhere like New Zealand. Our 3 year old loved it, climbed the rope bridge no probs and loved dinosaurs & bog walk. We will be recommending this place to everyone 😊😊🙌

Such a gorgeous little find in Kells! Totally weird having Thai food in an Irish garden in Kerry but makes sense once you find out the story of the house. Fantastic walk through really cool gardens. Great for a wander and lovely for kids.
