Full description
This spectacular tour departs at 10:30 AM and returns at 5:00 PM. The tour will pass through small towns like Milltown and Castlemaine before reaching your first stop at Inch Beach. Inch has provided shooting locations for several Hollywood films including the epic Ryan’s Daughter. Then, travel to Dingle town, a beautiful harbor town where the fishing boats unload the daily catch of fish throughout the day.

Continue to Slea Head Drive, a scenic circle loop of 26 miles (41 kilometers), and travel through Ventry, Dunquin and Ballyferriter. Rounding the head of the peninsula, there are magnificent views of the seven rocky Blasket Islands, spectacular cliffs and idyllic beaches. This is the edge of Europe and history is everywhere - Iron Age forts, beehive huts, early-Christian churches, 19th-century cottages and picturesque stone houses set against a patchwork of fields.

The town of Dingle is rich in culture, traditional music, great pubs and restaurants. There will be a stop here for lunch and a walk around the town at your leisure. After lunch, the bus will return to Killarney town center via Camp and Tralee (home of Rose of Tralee Festival).

It was a great tour, Dingle and the peninsula was beautiful. Try to book the tour on a nice day as the views are incredible if you can see. You spend a long day driving with just short stops except for the 1 1/2 lunch break in Dingle so be prepared to sit a lot. If you don’t have a car (like me) its a great way to see the sights! Sit on the passenger side of the bus if you want to be on the ocean/cliff side, sit on the driver side of the bus if you want to be next to the mountain side. The driver was non stop comedy, jokes, and stories. Bat was awesome - thank you!!!!

The trip was nice, we got to see plenty of beautiful scenery. Sometimes I felt the bus was short of fresh air so the photo stops every once in a while were good. Dingle was busy during lunch break maybe it could be an option to have a lunch break somewhere else along the trip. Though Dingle has the best variety of options :) The tour guide was great! We got a lot of info about the area and irish culture.

Fantastic tour

We had a great driver who drove us with great certainty on the narrow streets of the Ring of Dingle and could tell a lot about this beautiful part of Ireland. He made many photo stops, was considerate of a child who wasn't doing well, and always had fun on his lips. A wonderful day.
