1. Killarney Jaunt & Afternoon Tea
Begin your tour with a lively jaunt through the bustling streets of Killarney Town, bursting with scenes of colour and charm before entering the quiet and peaceful surroundings of the picturesque Killarney National Park. Enjoy views of the magnificent MacGillycuddy Reeks, the highest mountain peaks in Ireland, witness the country’s last remaining herd of majestic Red Deer, and take in the unique sights and sounds of the Oak and Yew Woodland, as you learn about the history of the Park and how it came to be. Journey on towards Ross Castle and its Tower Keep on the edge of Lough Lein and be spellbound by spectacular views along the way. Once the ancestral home of the O’Donoghue Clan, you will be enchanted by the striking beauty of the Castle as you listen to your Jarvey Guide unfold its history with tales of woe and warship as well as the ancient prophecy and legends of the fortress. Take a quick jaunt back through the leafy green suburbs of Killarney’s Ross Road and back into the outskirts of the Town before disembarking from your journey at the Great Southern, Killarney’s Premier Historic Hotel and the perfect place to end the most memorable tour. Relax and rewind in the splendour of the spacious Grand Foyer where High Tea has been served since Victorian times. Relish in a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked fruit or plain scones with clotted cream and jam, as well as a selection of pastries and banana bread, and of course, freshly brewed tea or coffee, complimented by a refreshing glass of prosecco. Children’s option also available. Please notify us of any dietary requirements.
