The Two Tour Special Offer is an opportunity to enjoy two of Irelands most scenic Day Tours - The Ring of Kerry and The Dingle Peninsula on two consecutive days with a 20% discount by booking online.

Day One: The Ring of Kerry Tour

The Iveragh Peninsula which contains Ireland’s most spectacular mountain road – the Ring of Kerry – is situated in the south west corner of Ireland. Over the centuries it has been the inspiration of poets and writers because of its magnificent coastal scenery and rugged countryside.

We cordially invite you to join with us on our motorcoach tour of this enchanting peninsula and share in its history, geography, culture, stories and folklore. This is an ideal opportunity for you to forget about the left hand side of the road for a day and relax in worry free comfort.

The Ring of Kerry is usually done in an anti-clockwise direction along the banks of the River Laune to Killorglin, via Glenbeigh, Kells, Caherciveen and the southern shores of Dingle Bay. The tour continues to Waterville and along the coast via Coomakista Pass and Derrynane and on to Sneem. From Sneem we travel up the mountain road to Molls Gap, then via Ladies’View and back to Killarney.

In addition to stopping at all points of interest en route we also stop for an hour at lunchtime. In the afternoon a stop will be made for tea/coffee/Guinness/refreshments.

You will find our guides knowledgeable, friendly and always willing to share a joke with you. This is an ideal opportunity for you to forget about the left hand side of the road for a day and relax in worry free comfort. It’s an experience we hope you will treasure for many years to come. The tour returns to Killarney in the evening at approx 16h40 - 17h00.

Day Two: Dingle Day Tour

The Dingle Peninsula which stretches out into the Atlantic ocean, is the most northerly of the mountainous promontories which forms the indented coast of South-west Ireland. It is particularly notable in its scenery of the mountain and coast and is of interest on account of its antiquities.

From Slea Head one can see the Blasket Islands which are the last outposts of Europe and are known as the “next parish to America”. They are famous for the literary and linguistic heritage of the former inhabitants. However, these remote islands have been uninhabited since the 1950’s following an evacuation. This Western end of the peninsula is a Gaeltacht area that has produced a number of nationally notable authors and poets: O’Siochfhradha and Peig Sayers among others. Being an Irish speaking district traditional customs are still very much alive.

 

The Peninsula exists because of the band of sandstone rock that forms the Slieve Mish mountain range at the neck of the peninsula in the east, and the unnamed central mountain range further to the west. Ireland’s highest mountain outside the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, Mount Brandon at 951m, forms part of a beautiful high ridge with stunning views over the peninsula and North Kerry.

The Dingle peninsula is named after the town of Dingle. The peninsula is also commonly called Corca Dhuibhne even when those referring to it are speaking in English. Which means “seed or tribe of Duibhne” (an Irish personal name), takes its name from the tuath (people, nation) of Corco Dhuibhne who occupied the peninsula in the Middle Ages and who also held a number of territories in the south and east of county Kerry. Dingle was the chief port of Kerry in the old Spanish trading days and in the reign of Queen Elizabeth was important enough to be a walled town.

The peninsula is the location of numerous prehistoric and early medieval remains – for example, the Gallarus Oratory in the very west of the peninsula near the village of Baile an Fheirtearaigh in Ard na Caithe.

Again this is an ideal opportunity for your to forget about the left hand side of the road and let our knowledgeable and friendly guides take care of you for the day. The tour returns to Killarney in the evening approx 17h00.
