Our Ireland Adventure
Day 7

Ring of Kerry Tour

 

Ring of Kerry Tour - Ireland

Although Paul and I are really not tour people, Sonja had scheduled us for a tour called the “Ring of Kerry” with the Wild Kerry Daytours. They picked us up and dropped us off directly from the Cillcearn House which was very convenient. However those vans were pretty dirty and very smoky.

The Wild Kerry Day Tour’s bus was a bit better. The Iveragh Peninsula which contains Ireland’s most spectacular mountain road – the Ring of Kerry – is situated in the south west corner of Ireland. Our driver, John, was very friendly and talked for almost the entire six-hour tour about history, geography, culture, stories and folklore. John even sang to us.

Our tour went in an counter-clockwise direction along the banks of the River Laune to Killorglin, via Glenbeigh, Kells, Caherciveen, the southern shores of Dingle Bay, Waterville, along the coast via Coomakista Pass, Derrynane, on to Sneem, up the mountain road to Molls Gap, and finished up at Ladies’View.

It filled our day and we did enjoy the tour. Unfortunately, a screaming toddler and two non-stop talking young ladies directly behind us reminded us why we are not keen on guided bus tour.
