We were in Killarney for two nights so we booked the Dingle Peninsula Tour through our travel agent. Well, our travel agent gave us the wrong contact so we couldn't call to confirm but we were waiting at the Ross Rd pickup when the hotel called and said our tour driver was there! John was nice enough to go off... More

What a great way to see the Ring of Kerry for the first time. The coach is comfortable and our driver/guide was entertaining and informative making the day seem to fly by. The stops along the way show some of the absolute beauty of Ireland, really stunning scenery. We now want to come back and actually walk the whole ROK... More

We had our rental car but just decided to do the day tour to not stress about driving in the rain, on the "wrong side" of the street.

We couldn't recommend this tour operator more if we tried...loved Sean!!! We were so happy it was a small bus, far less hassle and comfort. Informative, gracious, friendly, and very helpful...we are sad to go back to Maryland!

The first stop is the Kerry Bog museum. It’s optional and would advise against seeing it as it’s not well maintained. After that disappointment we didn’t fork out the admission fee for the sheepdog show.
