Luxury private tour of the hidden gems to Killarney
This unique privately guided & chauffeured tour takes you to Killarney along the Beara Peninsula on one of the most beautiful, and very frequently missed, drives in the Southwest and explore the Irish times gone by and experience many of the old ways.
Starting from Bantry you'll enjoy the quaint village of Glengarriff, the charming town of Kenmare and then onto Killarney National Park, and truly magnificent views of the Lakes of Killarney from Ladies View on a portion of the Ring of Kerry. You'll visit the 200 year old cottage and farm of Molly Gallivan and see how this remarkable woman survived during hard times in Ireland. Let's not forget a visit to the famous Garinish Island, a favorite of horticulturalists worldwide.
If you long to be off-the-beaten-path and you are based in the Bantry area or arriving at Bantry Port via cruise ship, this day tour is for you. Join me for your tour - your trail on the Beara Peninsula on your private day tour.
9:00 a. m. - Departure from your Ship or accommodation onward to Bonane Village to visit the home of Molly Gallivan's traditional farm & cottage and enjoy a walk with views over the Druids Glen where the first settlers of the Sheen Valley lived 6000+ years ago.
