Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. Yes. Children are indeed welcome but parents or guardians should consider the childs height in safely wearing a car seat safety belt. If a child"Booster Seat" is required I can easily supply it at no extra cost.

Friendly: No.
Unfortunately,the vehicles that I use are not wheelchair friendly. However, as the activity level is light, my tour is available to people with mild physical disabilties. I am sure that I and the touring party will be able to ensure that a person with a mild physical disability is not excluded from having an enjoyable day.

Maximum travelers: 7

Tour of the Killarney Valley and National Park,County Kerry,Ireland.


Margaret Mitchell's novel"Gone with the Wind"opens with these lines:"There was a land of Cavaliers and Cotton Fields called the old South. Here in this pretty world, Gallantry took its last bow. Look for it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered, a Civilisation gone with the wind". My private tour of the Killarney Valley and National Park reminds me of Margaret Mitchell's prophetic words of another time long past.

I will show you the old Killarney that visitors rarely see, including a few gems of times past but still surviving and thriving. I will include the places that have made Killarney a famous visitor's destination, Muckross House and Gardens, Ladies View, Molls Gap, Torc Waterfall, Ross Castle, St. Mary's Cathedral and The Gap of Dunloe.

We will visit the world renowned Kate Kearney's Cottage and a traditional Irish Pub, The Beaufort Bar where Whiskey Tasting will be offered under the expert hand and tuition of its owner, Padraig O'Sullivan before returning to Killarney.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Duration: 8 hours

Transportation

I will be driving my 7 seater Ford Tourneo Custom touring van, 2018 model, air-conditioned, leather seating and maintained to a high standard.

What’s Included

Other: This tour is for 8 hours duration and for up to 7 persons. Included in this price is my time as a qualified professional driver. It includes my private Guiding Service and all transport costs, vehicle/fuel etc.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

25 Euro - The local payment is made up of the cost of lunch during the day 10 euro per person and the charge for Irish Whiskey Tasting at 15 euro per person which is optional.

What’s Extra

Other: You will need to have lunch during the day and I have already explained the cost of lunch. You may also wish to purchase a souvenir of your tour and I would suggest a piece of Muckross Pottery that is made at the Craft Centre at Muckross House. As previously explained the Irish Whiskey Tasting is optional but excellent value as you will be offered 4 different whiskeys to taste. Admission Charges are extra.

Restrictions

I am not restricted access to any historical or heritage sites in Kerry. However, state owned properties such as Muckross House and Ross Castle provide their own guides of the interior of the buildings and you must honour and respect these regulations.

A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Ray. There were 7 of us in our group and we met with Ray in the parking lot of a hotel in Killarney and all loaded into his van. He is friendly, accommodating and and very informative about everything in the area. We toured Killarney Park, the gardens, the waterfall, Ross Castle, plus a drive around many of interesting and note worthy spots in Killarney. Including a stop for a great lunch and ice cream. He kept us all moving without feeling rushed. GREAT TOUR!
