Day One | Adare Heritage Town, Ring of Kerry & Killarney National Park
Departing Dublin, we drive through the Irish midlands, before making a stop at the picturesque ‘Adare Heritage town’
– make sure you have you camera at the ready to capture the traditional
thatched cottages! We continue our journey along to the ring of Kerry –
a truly beautiful and unspoiled landscape where you can marvel at
dramatic cliff views, old pagan dwellings and stunning mountain ranges.
We’ll stop to take in views of the Skellig rocks (location of the most recent ‘Star Wars’ movies). Following our lunch stop, its an action-packed afternoon with highlights such as Killarney National Park, Torc Waterfall, Moll’s Gap, the Leperachaun Crossing and many more.
This route takes in some of Ireland’s most breathtaking natural beauty.
An overnight stop in the town of Killarney – known around the world for
unbeatable Irish music, food and dancing – will see you experience the
Irish ‘craic’ first hand!
Day Two | Dingle Town & Peninsula
Wake up to the second day of your Ring of Kerry tour with an unforgettable horse-drawn carriage, or horse-back ride through Killarney National Park (optional). We then begin our drive to Dingle.
Historically a fishing village, Dingle is one of the few towns in
Ireland where Gaelic is still the primary language and the fact that it
has a whopping 52 pubs for its mere 2,000 residents is testament to the
fact that Dingle is a place of true Irish spirit!
Dingle’s celebrity dolphin ‘Fungi’ often stops by to
perform acrobatics during our short photo stop at Dingle Bay. The
Dingle peninsula has been cited by numerous photographic publications as
being ‘the most beautiful peninsula in the world’ and as we drive along
it – you’ll understand why. With plenty of stops to marvel at the views
of highlights including the Blasket Islands and the ‘Beehive huts’, which were inhabited by monks as far back as 2000BC.
We then make a return to Dingle for shopping (the town is a haven for
traditional Irish arts & crafts) and refreshments. As we commence
our journey back to Dublin, a final stop at the beautiful Inch beach (a world-renown surfing spot), will provide some last minute photo opportunities and fresh Atlantic air! Late evening arrival in Dublin.
