Luxury Coach transfer from Dublin City Centre to Killarney
Stop in The Heritage Town of Adare, Co Limerick, one of Ireland’s prettiest villages and host to the 2027 Ryder Cup.
Killarney Avenue Hotel, East Avenue, Town Centre.
A family-owned, 4-star hotel located across from the Golden Gates, on the doorstep of Killarney National Park. Delight in various walks through the verdant woodlands and along the lakeshores of Killarney, keeping an eye out for the park’s herd of red deer and taking in the gorgeous views. Enjoy the best of both worlds as the hotel is just a stone’s throw from Killarney’s vibrant Main Street, with its many restaurants, bars, cafés, and shops.
Three Nights Bed and Breakfast and Three Evening Meals.
The first adventure of the day begins at Killarney Visitor Centre on Scotts Street where you will be met by a traditional Jaunting Car which will take you on a scenic tour through Killarney National Park to Ross Castle. The driver of your jaunting car trip, known as a “jarvey,” is both a guide and a storyteller on your journey through the grounds of the Killarney National Park to the majestic 15th-century Ross Castle on the shores of Lough Leane. From here you’ll then take a cruise through scenes of gentle lowlands and scattered islands, in the shadow of the towering, rugged McGillcuddy Reeks Mountains, and your experienced skipper will give a full commentary on the flora, fauna and historical heritage of the area.
Relax and enjoy all the scenic beauty of Killarney on the Killarney Water Bus Tour around Lough Leane. Cruise Killarney National Park in the comfort and safety of a covered, heated and modern vessel. This is a spectacular experience cruising in the scenes of gentle low land, scattered islands in the shadow of the towering ruggedness of the McGillicuddy Reeks Mountain Range.
Your coach awaits to whisk you off on your next excursion to Muckross House and Gardens.
Muckross House is at the heart of Killarney National Park and is where Queen Victoria stayed in 1861. The Queen gave six years’ notice of her visit – plenty of time for the house to be redecorated – and arrived with her own bed and a 100-strong entourage. Over 160 years later, the 19th-century house and landscaped gardens are a national treasure to explore.
After a full day’s discovery of the best of Killarney, your coach will bring you back to your hotel.
Ring of Kerry Tour
Often described as the most beautiful part of Ireland, no visit to the Kingdom of Kerry is complete without a tour of this spectacular driving route. Be wowed by incredible scenery with endless photo opportunities as you wind your way along the 179km (111 miles) loop. A “must do” tour for anyone visiting Kerry. The day tour provides a chance to see some of Ireland’s most beautiful scenery and a perfect opportunity to take those photographic memories that you’ll treasure forever.
The Ring of Kerry takes in the towns and villages of Killarney, Kenmare, Sneem, Caherdaniel, Waterville, Cahirciveen, Kells, Glenbeigh and Killorglan. Be inspired by some of the best beaches in the country such as Rossbeigh, Derrynane, Castlecove, St. Finian’s Bay and Kells Beach.
Your Driver/Guide will bring you to the best highlights of the Ring of Kerry before a scheduled stop for lunch and a tour of Derrynane House in Caherdaniel, the ancestral home of Daniel O’Connell, The Liberator. Caherdaniel is located halfway around the Ring of Kerry, making it an ideal resting point in your journey.
Then, continuing into Waterville, an idyllic beach resort between Lough Currane and Ballinskelligs Bay. For years Waterville was a favourite retreat of Charlie Chaplin, and there is a life-size statue of him on the promenade.
The next stop is the small village of Sneem – one of Ireland’s most colourful villages and winner of many Tidy Town awards. Its two squares straddle the estuary of the River Sneem, with a quaint Italianate church(1865) and chequered houses. An untypical village laid out in an English style around a village green beneath a semi-circle of low mountains. One of the village’s outstanding features is the amount of sculpture in the village. These include a sculpture of a panda donated by the Peoples’ Republic of China and a plaque in memory of President Charles De Gaulle who visited the village on several occasions. There is also a statue here of a famous local wrestler, Steve “Crusher” Casey.
Cearbhall Ó Dálaigh, president of Ireland from 1974 – 1976 retired here and is buried in the local cemetery.
Leaving Sneem, we travel through the very rugged landscape and arrive at Moll’s Gap, where the viewing point at the Gap offers sweeping views of MacGillycuddy’s Reeks and Ireland’s highest mountain, Corrán Tuathail – 3,414 feet high.
Continuing from Moll’s Gap to Killarney, experience far-reaching views over the broad valley of the Killarney Lakes. On her visit in the 19th century, so enthralled by this view, Queen Victoria and her ladies-in-waiting promptly named it in their honour: “Ladies View.”
Return to Killarney after a full day’s exploration of the magic of The Kingdom.
Return Coach to Dublin, with a scheduled stop in Adare, Co. Limerick.
