Given the unpredictable nature of Ireland’s weather, what we do each day might occasionally vary so that you have the best experience possible.
DAY 1: THE RING OF KERRY DAY TOUR & VALENTIA ISLAND TOUR
Our Kingdom of Kerry tour begins with a unique off the beaten track experience of the world famous Ring of Kerry. Considered one of the most beautiful destinations to explore in Ireland, the Ring of Kerry offers dramatic landscapes of wild rugged coastline, golden beaches, glistening lakes, picturesque villages and spectacular mountain ranges.
Even better, we will take you on an incredible tour of the spectacular Valentia Island where you can delve into its incredible history and heritage, explore its magical setting on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and if you are lucky get a glimpse (weather permitting) of the dramatic Skellig Islands (Star Wars famed).
After a well-earned bite to eat, we slowly make our way back to Killarney stopping off at many spectacular viewing points to learn of their historical importance and the opportunity to take that picture that will ensure an everlasting memory of paradise.
DAY 2: DINGLE & SLEA HEAD DAY TOUR
Dingle is our destination today, as we explore this dramatic and beautiful peninsula that is littered with archaeological and historical wonders. Our first stop off is at Inch beach, famous for being the place where an inch is actually three miles long and where we take a short stroll along its golden sands and watch long rolling waves that come crashing ashore.
Once aboard we head due west to the edge of Europe, also known as Slea Head. Feast your eyes on breathtaking scenery of wild rugged coastline, golden beaches and the magnificent Blasket Islands. We continue our journey around this rich and vibrant peninsulas exploring its vast Gaelic culture and learning a cupla focal (some words) in Irish along the way. We will also visit Dingle town, a picturesque fishing town that is famed for Fungi the dolphin who has been a local for almost 30 years, before making our return journey to Killarney.
DAY 3: DISCOVER KILLARNEY
Our Kingdom of Kerry tour may end today, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a great treat for you. Our first adventure is a mesmerizing kayak tour on the Lakes of Killarney that journeys out towards the unique setting of Innisfallen Island, home to a 6th Century Abbey and wild Sika deer.
That afternoon, you can either relax, wander through Killarney’s ambient streets or explore the amazing history of Killarney National Park by bicycle before return to Killarney where we say a fond farewell and hope that one day we shall meet each other again on this small island that is now forever your home away from home.
