Full description
The Ring of Kerry provides an amazing insight into Ireland’s ancient past. See the stone forts, standing stones, and a landscape carved out of rock by the last ice age, some 10,000 years ago.

Detailed Itinerary
Sneem: Make a stop in one of Ireland's most colorful and charming villages. You’ll see 2 village squares and a beautiful bridge in the village center. This is where the River Sneem meets the currents of Kenmare Bay.

Killorglin: Pass through Killorglin, the home of the ancient Celtic festival known as the Puck Fair. Dating back to 1613, this is one of the oldest festivals in the world, and where a goat is crowned king of the village!

Dingle Bay: Take in the amazing views of Dingle Bay, famous Inch Beach, and on a clear day, possibly even the Blasket Islands off the wild Atlantic coast.

Waterville: Admire this picturesque little village that sits overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay and the Skellig Rocks with their early Christian monastery. Charlie Chaplin loved Watereville and was a frequent visitor. See the statue in his honor, unveiled in 1998.

Killarney National Park: See what is probably the most beautiful and admired national park in Ireland, and take in the views of the Lakes of Killarney and the Black Valley during stops at Molls Gap and Leprechaun Crossing.

Torc Waterfall: Stop at the lovely 18-meter-high waterfall that cascades through the wooded Friar's Glenn, and admire this site of natural beauty.

Killarney: Take some time to relax in Killarney and grab some refreshments before departing for Cork.

We had a wonderful day with DJ, who is a gem of a human being.

DJ is a special person. Not only did he ensure everyone's safety and pleasure throughout the day, he was very generous with his comments, stories and songs. He has a way of engaging people to participate and share their joy of the moment. Of course, it helped that the scenery along the Ring of Kerry was spectacular and the weather was exceptionnally good. To my wife, daugther and myself, this turned out to be a magical day for us.

Very nice Tour and I would do it again!

I liked the Tour very mich and our guide (D. J.) was quite funny. He was enthusiastic about telling us background information. In the beginning of the trip more, than at the end. We made many stops at interesting sites. Positive is that our guide vallued punctuality very much and could answer every question, which he was asked. The time spend at each stop was sufficient in all but one stop. I would have liked more time at the turf museum, because 15-20 minutes are too little to enter a museum. By the way: your country is amazing! P.S.: Congratulations to the american couple for theier 50th wedding aniversity!!! (Just in case you read this ;) )
