Overview

The Ring of Kerry and the Killarney National Park take pride of place on the Iveragh Peninsula, with some of Ireland’s finest coastal scenery — but the 177-kilometer (110-mile) journey makes sightseeing a challenge. This convenient 6-hour coach tour from Killarney makes it possible to complete the route in a day, plus take in traditional coastal villages such as Cahersiveen, Derrynane, and Glenbeigh. Visit the historic Bog Village with a guide, and discover top natural attractions including the Killarney Lakes, Rossbeigh Beach, and Macgillycuddy's Reeks.

Meet your guide in central Killarney at 10:30am and take a seat in your air-conditioned coach. Then, head out of town and along the famous Ring of Kerry — widely considered Ireland’s prettiest stretch of countryside — to begin your 6-hour tour.

Visit the Bog Village, home to traditional thatched-roof cottages, and learn of life in Ireland during the early 19th-century. Perhaps visit the museum village (own expense), and discover top attractions such as the blacksmith’s forge and turf-cutter’s house. There is also an old Irish pub where an early drink or morning coffee and scones may be enjoyed (own expense).

Continue on through villages such as Cahersiveen, Derrynane, Glenbeigh, Sneem, and Waterville, and admire sweeping views over Rossbeigh Beach and the Iveragh peninsula. Along the way, learn of famous ex-residents including Daniel O’Connell — one of the most influential politicians in Ireland’s colorful history.

After lunch (own expense), travel through rugged landscape to Molls Gap and gaze out over peaks including Carrantuohill and Macgillycuddy's Reeks. Spin through the Killarney National Park and capture the pretty Killarney Lakes on camera. Then, return in comfort to your starting point in Killarney to conclude your tour.

Morris was an excellent guide and driver. Loved his stories jokes and his singing. He made several stops for photos. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

We took the 6.5 hour bus tour from Killarney. We had a very entertaining guide. The sheep-herding dog demonstration was our favorite, aside from the natural beauty. Many photo ops! Sneem village was also a favorite - don't miss the man with the goat!

We were turned off at first when they charged an extra 5€ to sit up front but our driver was good and the scenery was beautiful! The bog was an extra fee and you were only there for 25 min. There was also a sheep show again for another fee so bring cash if interested in these opportunities.

Ray Furlong was our driver and guide for this tour. So knowledgeable, great story teller, fun and funny ... and an expert driver. He made the day an invaluable experience.
Thank you for a marvelous day.
