See breathtaking sights during this drive along the coast of Kerry


Killarney, perched at the start of the Iveragh Peninsula of Kerry, popularly known as the Ring of Kerry, boasts some spectacular sights amidst the rugged landscape of hills and heather nestled against the rough coastal waters of the Atlantic Ocean. As we drive from location to location through this scenery you will hear stories from Ireland's ancient past, medieval times, and the modern era. During the various stops on this driving tour guests will hear various stories, and maybe a song or two, that recounts some of the famed episodes of Irish history tied to the places we visit including St. Brendan the Navigator and Daniel O'Connell "The Liberator". Castles, cliffs, and pleasant company from a local are the highlights on this unique tour of the Ring of Kerry.

Itinerary

Once the guests are collected the tour typically begins in Killarney and some of the history of the town before moving to its outskirts where we take time to look at a castle and a major ruined abbey on the banks of the gorgeous Lakes of Killarney. Following the course of the Lakes we journey the winding road into the hills overlooking them, making our way upto Moll's Gap before descending into the pretty town of Kenmare where we break for lunch.

Our next two stop are ancient Irish fortifications, built in the sixth and seventh century. We then loop across the end of the peninsula taking in some of the breathtaking sights along the cliff side facing the ocean. We visit the town of Cahersiveen noting some of the myths and legends of the place before returning to the town of Killarney where we finish our visit with a tour of St. Mary's Cathedral after which the guests are returned to a location of their choice.
