Estimated Local Cash Needed
30 euro - Approximately 50 Euro per day for daily meals, refreshments and various entrance fees. Accommodation charges are not included, however, I am happy to assist with making the arrangements. It is suggested this be a "spoke tour" with homebase in Killarney and day tours from there when possible in order to provide the most relaxing vacation. However, I am happy to make recommendations for out of town, overnight accommodations if necessary for the decided itinerary.
There are no required extra purchases in order to have a wonderful tour.
