With your group, enjoy breakfast at your hotel before pickup by your knowledgeable guide. Your sightseeing tour by comfortable coach goes through the picturesque Ring of Kerry – southwestern Ireland’s scenic 110-mile (180-km) route.

Follow this circular road through some of Ireland’s most spectacular scenery. Head through Moll's Gap and admire the red sandstone rocks along the scenic pass. At a panoramic vista, your guide will point out camera-worthy views of Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, a lovely mountain range that reaches across 12 miles (19 km) of rural terrain.

Take in Ireland’s highest peaks and catch sight of the tallest, Carrantuohill, which reaches a height of 3,400 feet (1,040 meters).

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

wonderful. Peter was a very good guide. The hotel was nice, the weather too! The trip with the coach was good organized, we saw interesting places and we had a fantastic place for lunch! you have to do this trip!

4 star rating: Recommended May 2014

Overall it was a good experience with plenty of stops on the coach tour and a very comfortable hotel. Unfortunately this was not matched by our reception at the station in Dublin. The representative was not there when we arrived. When we found him, and he gave us our papers, we found that we did not have seat reservations on the train. We were told we could sit anywhere where the 'reserved' signs were not illuminated. After we had found suitable seats and stowed our luggage, the reservation system was switched on and showed that we were sitting in seats reserved for others. This led to a scramble to find unreserved seats in other carriages. On our return journey seats were reserved and a representative guided us to them. If our first contact had been like this we would have been completely satisfied.
