Killarney is truly the jewel in Ireland’s crown, with its famed blue lakes, surrounded by green hills and mountains. Our holiday not only offers traditional Irish charm with its jaunting cars but also the spectacular Ring of Kerry and natural scenic beauty of the Dingle Peninsula.
Travel to Pembroke for the Irish Ferries crossing to Rosslare before continuing onto Waterford for an overnight stop.
Day 2 - Dungarvan
Leave Waterford and travel to bustling seaside town Dungarvan. Strategically located on the South East coast of Ireland and overlooking beautiful Dungarvan Bay, Dungarvan is a thriving market town nestled beneath the Comeragh Mountains of County Waterford. After some free time we continue onto Killarney for our 4 night stay.
Day 3 – Killarney
We begin the day with a jaunting car ride through the Killarney National Park. Operated by the Tangney family for over 220 years, step back in time and experience Ireland’s most traditional mode of transport. The ride operates where no motor traffic is permitted offering a unique tour to the hidden delights of Killarney National Park & the famous Lakes of Killarney. We then enjoy a peaceful lake cruise on Lough Leane before continuing onto Killarney for the rest of the day.
Day 4 – The Ring of Kerry
After breakfast we set off for a full day excursion around the spectacular Ring of Kerry accompanied by a local guide. The Ring of Kerry (or Iveragh Peninsula to give it its correct name) is a must see for visitors to Ireland. Follow the ocean road past pristine beaches and through a mystical & unspoilt region of Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Above all, the Ring of Kerry provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland - see the Iron Age Forts & Ogham Stones, Old Monasteries and a landscape carved out of rock by the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.
Day 5 – Tralee & the Dingle Peninsula
Today we head to the Dingle Peninsula and Tralee. Made famous by Ryan’s Daughter, the Dingle Peninsula or Corca Dhuibhne, stretching 30 miles into the Atlantic Ocean, offers some of the wildest natural scenic beauty in Ireland. We also make a visit to Tralee, the county town of County Kerry.
Day 6 – Blarney
Depart Killarney after breakfast and travel to Blarney. Steeped in history and magical charm, Blarney village offers the visitor a host of things to do and places to discover, such as the well-preserved village square. For many, their priority is to kiss the famous Blarney Stone high up on the Castle battlements. Tradition holds that those who kiss the Blarney Stone will be endowed with the gift of eloquence – “the gift of the gab”, as locals call it! We then continue onto Enniscorthy for our overnight stop.
After breakfast we make the short journey to Rosslare for the Irish Ferries crossing to Pembroke and the homeward journey.
