Private guided motor tour of the Ring of Kerry, Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland.
This private motor tour of the famous Ring of Kerry will start in Killarney and take you on a journey of dramatic sea views, sheer cliffs and ever changing skies. Rural sheep farming is a way of life here, carried on in green fields and valleys divided by ancient stone walls.
Your tour will travel through quaint villages and towns dotted along the coastal route with their old world pubs, restaurants and craft centres. You will visit the ancestral home of Daniel O'Connell, The Liberator at Derrynane House. The area is surrounded by Ireland's highest mountain ranges reaching down to the wild Atlantic Ocean and perched on the very edge of the Continent of Europe.
You will drive through Killarney's National Park, with its world renowned scenic locations such as Molls Gap and Torc Waterfall and home to Ireland's only surviving herd of native Red Deer and the recently reintroduced rare White Tailed Sea Eagles. The tour will conclude with a visit to Killarney's Muckross House and Gardens.

Ray was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the area. He varied his normal tour to make sure we saw everything we wanted to see. We were never rushed and we would highly recommend him!
