This is the edge of Europe and history is everywhere - Iron Age forts, beehive huts, early-Christian churches, 19th-century cottages and picturesque stone houses set against a patchwork of fields. This most scenic route winds around the coast to Slea Head, where the view of the Blasket Islands stops many visitors in their tracks.The group of seven rocky islands offshore is the Blasket Islands. These islands were inhabited until 1953 and the islanders were great storytellers and made a lasting contribution to Irish Literature.

    It was a great dat to see Dingle and all the land . The weather helped a lot with makeing it a great day.

    Our guide Ray provided 7 hours of Irish history, folklore and humor as we negotiated narrow roads. The beauty of southern Irish coastline offered frequent photo stops to enjoy the beauty. Our lunch stop in Dingle included plenty of time for a meal, a pint, and shopping.

    We had an absolutely fantastic tour of Dingle and Slea Head. Our tour guide/bus drive, Ray, was truly outstanding. We loved his narrative and learned so much from him. And he was so gracious, thoughtful and truly kind. What a great person. Thank you Ray for such a lovely day!

    My fiancé and I took one of the best tours either of us have ever went on. We did the “Full day tour of the Dingle Peninsula, slea head and inch beach”. The tour started out by stopping at a cute, drive on beach (Inch). There we were able to take in beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean with a backdrop of mountains. We stayed there for about :30 minutes, which was a nice break from the drive.

    On our way to Slea Head drive, our tour guide couldn’t have been funnier, more knowledgeable or pleasant. He was truly a pleasure to be around and he seemed to really enjoy what he does. He would take pictures for everyone, wave on traffic and say hello to anyone who was around. He stopped multiple times at various points throughout the drive at scenic views that you can only experience in West Southern Ireland. One of our favorite parts of the tour was when we stopped for a “meet and greet” with the lambs. There we were able to hold, take pictures and be around them for about 15 minutes (it does cost 3 euro each but totally worth it).

    On our way around Slea head drive, we stopped in one of the more beautiful towns in all of Ireland, Dingle Harbour. We stopped for approximately an hour and a half. In Dingle, we ate lunch at a beautiful restaurant overlooking the harbor that had not only spectacular views but delicious food and drink. We would highly recommend eating at Boat Harbor if you have the time, especially out on the patio.

    Overall, the tour couldn’t have been better. I can’t tell you how great our tour guide was and we would highly recommend using this company and going on this tour while in Killarney. 5 stars all around! P.S. Ask for Betty – he made it all worthwhile. Slainte!

    This is the best day tour I've ever been on. We saw some many places of interest and the views were great.

    We had another great tour with Deros Tours! The sites were so extraordinary and we had another wonderful guide. The guides with Deros are truly great and so knowledgeable. Although it was really rainy and foggy, it was still gorgeous and we got to see beautiful views. Would definitely recommend! Also, you do stop in Dingle for about 1.5 hours for lunch. We packed lunch, so didn't have too much to do since it was raining then run in between shops. I would advise not to pack a lunch and enjoy a nice Irish lunch out in Dingle!

    Ray was a terrific guide. He was patient, knowledgeable, and fun. The scenery was spectacular.

    I loved this tour. I planned a two week trip to Ireland for my parents and me, and we truly enjoyed this excursion. The history and the stories - and the Irish pub music - were great. As with everything in this country, the people make it wonderful. The tour guides are great, but the Irish are so wonderful in general. They make it very easy to be a traveler gathering stories rather than a tourist.

    Our tour operator made this tour. Very knowledgeable and entertaining.
