The final day of your tour, finds you in County Clare, visiting The Cliffs of Moher and touring The Burren National Park with a stop in Doolin Village, widely regarded as the spiritual home of Traditional Irish Music. This tour allows you the option of basing yourself in Killarney or overnighting in one of your daily destinations.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful tour!! Ray was very knowledgeable about Irish history sharing many factors as we visited all the historical sites. And usually he had fun and interesting personal insights on Killarney that were great. He adapted the tour to our timing and to the weather making changes on the spotted if needed. When friends who were touring on their own showed up unexpectedly he was very gracious he letting them follow us around for half a day and giving them helpful driving directions. Thank you.
