This is a beautiful drive but very long! every bit of the 11 hours. Because of the distances to be covered it is pretty much a long bus trip with stops to get out and take pictures. YOu do hike up to the Torc falls but you only get about 30 minutes.

Bus broke down about 45 minutes out of Kalarney. Waited about 2 hours for replacement. The trip was then rushed through so that each stop was just enough time to use the toilets. Replacement bus was VERY uncomfortable, worse than original bus which wasn't great. Couldn't even put knees in front

Helen B
, Jul 2017
The tour company should have told us there was a big football game going on in Killarney where we met the 2nd bus which severely affected traffic. Streets were blocked off and the bus had to take a longer route around it, thus delaying our tour. We did not stop frequently enough or for a long period of time 45 minutes is not long enough for a bus load of people to get lunch and look around the town. We stopped 30 minutes in Sneem to accommodate people looking up their ancestry. There was no parking at the waterfall so we missed that. We had to wait 30 minutes again due to traffic to meet up with the bus in Killarney. The delays added about 3 hours to our already long day. The sites were beautiful, but most of my pictures are from the bus window.

Howard Z
, Jul 2017
Nice tour of the Ring of Kerry, but I don't know how I would change it to be better short of it being a semi-private or private tour. It's difficult to constantly stop and discharge 50 passengers for photo ops. The length of time at a particular place is minimal it's just scenery beautiful scenery at that but it takes time to load and unload. So, you have to understand what this tour is, and is not. It is not a private tour, stopping wherever along the 100 mile Ring of Kerry. Most of what you see, you see from a bus window. Having said that, this is the most economical way to see the Ring of Kerry. A private tour will probably cost 10 times the price of this tour. The choice is yours.
