Renowned for its great natural beauty, Killarney is one of Ireland’s favourite holiday destinations. Surrounded by dramatic coastlines, towering mountains and scenic lakes, Killarney has something for everyone.
We will stay overnight at the Talbot Hotel in Stillorgan on both the outward and return journeys. This comfortable hotel is convenient for the ferry port. In Killarney, we will spend four nights at the very well-appointed Killarney Towers Hotel which is centrally located and offers leisure facilities. Both hotels have a lift but very limited numbers of rooms with walk in showers, available on request.
Monday: Travel to Holyhead for the afternoon ferry to Dublin, then continue on to our overnight hotel in Stillorgan.
Tuesday: We complete our journey to Killarney, travelling via Kildare and the Rock of Cashel.
Wednesday: After breakfast we enjoy one of the highlights of this tour as we visit the spectacular Ring of Kerry, a picturesque peninsula with traditional villages, coastal scenery and delightful countryside.
Thursday: Today, we will enjoy a day around Killarney, taking a Jaunting Car Ride through the National Park, followed by a scenic cruise on Loch Leane. Later there will be free time to explore Killarney at leisure.
Friday: We take a scenic tour to the famous Dingle Peninsula to see some of Ireland’s most spectacular coastal scenery.
Saturday: With our luggage loaded, we leave Killarney and travel back across Ireland for our overnight stay at the Talbot Hotel.
Sunday: It is an early start as we head into Dublin for the morning ferry back to Holyhead. Hot drinks and home baked goods will be available in the hotel prior to our departure and during the crossing, breakfast will be served on board the ferry. We then continue our journey back to Derbyshire.
