A really great tour to really see everything from the Ring of Kerry in one day. The guide was really great and told a lot about the history of Ireland around the Ring of Kerry. It is even possible to take a boat tour to the Skellig Islands (at an additional cost), which is definitely worth it! I can only recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see a lot for little money.

Fantastic Tour

This tour covers a LOT of ground, but that is exactly what we were looking for. The fortress was nice and the coastal areas were very beautiful. My husband and I especially enjoyed the hike on Valencia Island. The restaurant recommended for lunch afterwards was also quite tasty. I wish we had a had a few more picture taking stops, but I also understand that we needed to keep moving. I would 100% recommend this tour to others looking to see the coast without renting a car.

Great day. very relaxing being driven around Ring of Kerry. Many stops to take pictures of views. The walk on Valencia island was well worth the walk up the hill. Good lunch at Portmagee. very scenic drive. Diver John gave good commentary, with lot of history of the area
