Full description
The Ring of Kerry skirts the Iveragh Peninsula and is undoubtedly Ireland’s most popular scenic drive. Begin by passing through Killorglin, home to the famous Puck Fair festival held in August every year. Stop at The Bog Village, a little cluster of thatched-roof cottages demonstrating what rural life was like in Kerry in the 1800’s. Continue through the village of Glenbeigh, with beautiful views over Rossbeigh Beach and the rugged hills of the Iveragh Peninsula.

In the summer months, take in the spectacle of a traditional Irish sheepdog show at Kells. Sample fresh local produce while pausing for a deliciously traditional lunch in Cahersiveen town, The Scarriff Inn or Waterville. After lunch, explore the historic cove at Derrynane, a rocky inlet and notorious hideout for smugglers in the 18th century. It is the former seat of the O’Connell clan and home to Daniel O’Connell, a legend of Irish history.

Enjoy the village of Sneem – perhaps Ireland’s most colorful village – before traveling through the rugged and haunting landscape on the road to Moll’s Gap. The viewing point here offers sweeping vistas of MacGillycuddy’s Reeks and Ireland’s highest mountain, Corrán Tuathail – 3,414 feet high. Continuing from Moll’s Gap to Killarney, watch the sun glisten across the broad valley of the Killarney Lakes.

Return to Killarney at approximately 5:00 - 5:30 PM.

The whole experience was outstanding. The scenery and stops were so enjoyable, especially being able to closely view the landscape instead of watching the road and staying focused on staying on the left side of the road. The stops were well timed and perfect photo opportunities. I can't say enough about our driver and guide, Batt! He kept us well informed, entertained and from his descriptions of his past work, family stories, his commitment to those around him and his love for his community, he was a warm example of what makes Ireland so special. Thank you.

Spectacular Day Trip

The tour was an amazing experience from the time that we left Killarney with our wonderful guide Batt. His knowledge of the area, local stories of the history and family connections was most enjoyable for all on board. The views of the Ring of Kerry were amazing and the various extra options of the Bog Farm and the Sheep Dog Exhibition was thoroughly enjoyable and educational. I would certainly recommend this tour to others.
