Know More about this tour

Your tour begins at 9am at your Kinsale accommodation, where your private driver will pick you up for this full-day Kerry adventure. The Ring of Kerry is without a doubt one of Ireland's most scenic drives, although before you even reach the famous road along the coast, you'll pass through villages where the Irish language is spoken on a daily basis.

You'll then pass up and over the mountains to where the "Ring of Kerry" begins, and your driver will tell you the fascinating history behind the area's towns. One such example is the town of Killorgin, which is home to the curious "Puck Fair." Regarded as Ireland's oldest festival, the fair features a male goat that's placed on a40-foot (12-meter) platform, where he is then declared the "King" of the town and the villagersdrink beer for 3 days.

From here you'll stop for an Irish coffee at a traditional Irish pub, and see the Bog Villagean award-winning replica of a traditional famine village. You'll next head intocoastal Waterville where Charlie Chaplin would holiday, before driving to the top of "Comnakiste" for views of the Beara Peninsula. Weave throughout the mountains of the "Macgillicuddy Reeks" range, where Carrauntoohilthe tallest mountain in Irelandrises off to the left, and visit "Ladies View" in Killarney National Park, which was named by Queen Victoria.

    Worth every penny.
    Our tour guide was a fountain of knowledge and beyond friendly. My family and I were gifted with an experience we will never forget. Our tour guide, not only stopped at the check list places but he made sure to stop at the best spots to get that once in a lifetime picture and he never rushed us. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling with a small family or group of friends. It was really one of the best ways to tour, no waiting on other people or rushing. It was a pleasant day and one we still talk about a year later.
