  • Day 1 | Dublin – Dingle Peninsula – Dingle

    This morning we leave the capital and cruise towards the Celtic paradise of the “Kingdom of Kerry”. Our objective today is the remote and unspoiled Dingle Peninsula, a region close to the heart and soul of many Irish people. It was here amongst the last parishes before America that Hollywood classics “Ryan’s Daughter” and “Far & Away” were filmed. Haunting vistas of the Blasket Islands and Slea Head await. Liaise with your driver to get the most out of this great day on tour at the wild edge of Europe. There are various routes and options depending on the weather and personalities. Experience authentic Ireland this evening over a few pints with the locals. Overnight in Dingle.

  • Day 2 | Killarney – Highlights of the Ring of Kerry – Killarney

    After breakfast this morning your adventure continues to the neighbouring Iveragh Peninsula (Ring of Kerry) for a tour of the highlights and some time exploring Killarney. Highlights of Ring of Kerry can include Kenmare, Molls Gap, Leprechaun Crossing, Killarney National Park, The Lakes of Killarney (favourite of Queen Victoria of England), Ross castle and romantic Torc Waterfall. Perhaps enjoy a traditional horse & jaunting car ride or a stroll through a section of National Park. This evening you can look forward to excellent restaurants, pubs and live music in Killarney, Co. Kerry’s main town.  Overnight in Killarney

  • Day 3 | Killarney – Blarney Castle – Rock of Cashel – Dublin (ends)

    Sadly we must say “Slán” (goodbye) to the beautiful south- west. Many guests report feeling spiritually impacted by Co. Kerry and promise to return before long! Today you’ll cross the Cork & Kerry mountains (perhaps your driver will play or sing the local classic “Whiskey in the Jar”) to visit Blarney Castle in Co. Cork. Perhaps climb to the ramparts where those who choose to kiss the Blarney Stone will be rewarded with 7 years of eloquent speech, or “Blarney”. Many guests will enjoy some last minute tax- free shopping here at the Blarney Woollen Mills. Drive back through the heartland of Ireland making a last stop at the Rock of Cashel – a Disney- like cathedral ruins with links to St. Patrick and ancient Irish royalty. Your tour ends in Dublin.
