Kenmare / Killarney & South West
REGIONAL FOCUS TOUR | SIGHTSEEING AND CULTURE SEEKING | 6 DAYS, 5 NIGHTS
Why not base yourself in Kenmare or Killarney for seven days of relaxation and discovery. You’ll have the opportunity to explore the sights & culture of counties Cork & Kerry, including the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula and the colourful fishing villages of West Cork’s Beara Peninsula! Contact us immediately for further details!
The Kenmare/Killarney private tour covers a portion of the most spectacular scenery in Ireland. Here, amongst “the last parishes before America”, you’ll explore breathtakingly beautiful peninsulas including the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula, visiting quaint villages and dodging sheep along the way!
Perhaps consider a visit to the mystical Skellig Islands with ancient Christian ruins and beautiful seabird colonies (one of two UNESCO Heritage sites in Ireland). Meanwhile, those who clamber to the ramparts of Blarney Castle to kiss the legendary stone may receive the “gift of the gab”, the gift of eloquent speech! Importantly, cultural travel connects you with Ireland’s greatest asset-her warm, welcoming people. And there’s always a creamy pint of Stout waiting for us at one of our local pubs!
