A Short Introduction To Your Journey

Every Kerry man, woman, child and dog will insist that Kerry has some of the most stunning scenery in all of Ireland and everyone else will be hard pushed to deny the claim’s validity. Facing the Atlantic Ocean, Kerry’s coastline is made up of a series of inlets, peninsulas, bays and coves. It is a mountainous region, with two of our three highest mountains residing in Kerry; Carrauntoohill and Mount Brandon. Furthermore, the county has a series of islands visible off the coast, including the World Heritage UNESCO Site, Skellig Michael, the medieval monastery of beehive shaped huts perched in the elements and among the ferocious waves. The county’s beauty is owed to an Ice Age that took place over 10,000 years ago and homage to nature’s powerful grasp on the landscape.

  • Depart Dublin & Adare Heritage Town

    Bright and early we set off to Kerry and make a stop in the village of Adare, a heritage town and a national winner of Ireland’s tidy town’s competition. You’ll truly feel as though you’ve stepped onto the film set of John Wayne’s “The Quiet Man” as you pass the traditional thatched cottages amongst the lush Irish surroundings.

  • Killarney National Park

    Our next stop is in Killarney National Park, a place of arresting beauty, spectacular views and home to the palatial 19th century Victorian mansion, Muckross House. You will have a chance to walk through the park and behold the beauty of its many lakes, mountains, rolling fields, woodlands and waterfalls and the park’s trademark sight of horse and trap, trotting up and down the park’s driveways.

  • Killarney

    They are more hotel beds in Killarney than there are in any other town in Ireland, with the exception of the capital city of Dublin. Known as the gateway to Kerry, the delightful town of Killarney has been voted the greatest place to visit in Ireland time and time again. Surrounded by Killarney’s lakes and mountains, the skyline is truly something to behold, however the town itself has just as much to offer with beautiful cathedrals, glorious food, fabulous shops and a nightlife of traditional Irish music to match its daytime vibrancy.

  • Torc Waterfall

    Regardless of the season, the Torc waterfall is a specimen of beauty. Surrounded by woodland, the waterfall marks a highlight on a 200 km walk around Kerry. However, visitors can make a much more humble trip just up to the Waterfall’s base and ponder over the majestic towering stream of crashing water and slick, black rock, all enveloped by overhanging foliage.

  • Killorglin

    A vibrant hub located on the river Luane, Killorglin is home to the eccentric, but highly popular Puck Fair, where the residents crown two goats as “Queen of Puck” and “King Puck”. It is truly as wonderfully absurd as it sounds, but it is an annual fair that takes place over three days and is an incredible source of good fun.

  • Dingle Bay

    Next we drive along the panoramic and very famous Dingle Peninsula taking in fantastic views of Dingle and Tralee Bay. Dingle is home to every Irish person’s favourite dolphin, Fungi and is also known for its night life of traditional Irish music. Tralee, on the other hand, plays host to the annual Rose of Tralee Competition, whereby the loveliest girl is crowned with a tiara and sash.

  • Wild Atlantic Way and Inch Beach

    Before we end our jam packed day and return to Dublin we drive to Inch beach, famous due to its many appearances in Hollywood films. You’ll be able to dip your toes by the shore and curl them in the sand, before boarding the bus one last time on your return to Dublin’s Fair City.

  • 21:00: Arrive Dublin

    Arrive back downtown with ample time for late dinner reservations and an evening of reminisces over a social drink or two.

  • 06:30am - Paddys Palace, Lower Gardiner Street, Dublin
