Ring of Kerry Tour from Killarney including Killarney National Park
From US$34.51
Overview
The Ring of Kerry and the Killarney National Park take pride of place on the Iveragh Peninsula, with some of Ireland’s finest coastal scenery — but the 177-kilometer (110-mile) journey makes sightseeing a challenge. This convenient 6-hour coach tour from Killarney makes it possible to complete the route in a day, plus take in traditional coastal villages such as Cahersiveen, Derrynane, and Glenbeigh. Visit the historic Bog Village with a guide, and discover top natural attractions including the Killarney Lakes, Rossbeigh Beach, and Macgillycuddy's Reeks.
What to Expect
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.

Nice Tour on a Smaller Coach

This tour was value-oriented. Note that Kenmare is not a stop on this tour (we thought it might be). We went in March, so the weather was windy and a bit stormy, but that is not the fault of the tour operators. We still had...More

Ray is AMAZING!

Ray made our tour so enjoyable. We were the only people asking questions and Ray never failed to answer. He spent time with us at every stop instead of just sitting only the bus. This tour was stunningly beautiful and surprisingly not a boring tour....More

Our bus travelled counter clockwise. We paid a few extra $$ to get the first seat on the left hand side and we could see right out the front windshield. Soooo worth it
