    The Ring of Kerry drive was very scenic and we stopped at some really gorgeous places, even at some areas not on the itinerary, which was awesome! DJ has some interesting facts along the way, though I wish there were more details in the history. We did do an awesome singalong with the whole bus!

    My first trip to Ireland and have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. The Ring of Kerry is probably my favourite right now. You definitely need more time to explore this amazing part of the country

    The driver is rude. He didn’t let us in the bus despite the fact that we have a ticket. He said he couldn’t find my name on the list. Then totally disregarding us without telling us what to do. Good thing I reached out to their office immediately.
