It’s on everyone’s list of places to see when you’re in Ireland but covering such a vast expanse, can seem like a daunting visit to undertake on your own, whether it be on foot or navigating the winding Irish roads in a rental car. That’s why most opt to take in this particular attraction with a day tour company, and what better company to go with than one sporting a cheeky Irish leprechaun as it’s mascot? So hop on board with the team at Paddywagon tours and see some of the most beautiful views that Ireland has to offer.
It’s a fun-filled day on this tour that departs bright and early at 8:30 AM from Limerick City center, returning later that evening. At just €35 a seat, you will not only be driven from each amazing spot on the tour but you will also have the friendliest of drivers guiding you throughout with all the need-to-know info as well as all the best tales and myths Ireland has to offer.
After departing Limerick the adventure begins and it won’t be long before the mountains and lakes that make up the Ring of Kerry come into view eventually passing through the town of Killorglin. Every year in August Killorglin hosts the three day Puck Festival, Ireland’s oldest festival. During it, a goat was crowned king and as you pass over the river Laune you can see the statue of King Puck.
Following Killorglin you get to see the stunning Dingle Bay where you get to stop and take photos of these views that are so unique to Ireland.
You will also get to see the picturesque village of Waterville and see just why it was the favourite holiday spot of Charlie Chaplin and his family, to the point where they returned yearly. Ask your tour guide to show you the statue of Chaplin erected in his honour.
Next up is one of the highlights for many on the tour, Killarney National Park, it has arguably some of the most beautiful views in Ireland from the Lakes of Killarney and the Black Valley as well as Molls Gap and Ladies View – also known as Leprechaun Crossing (if you’re really lucky maybe you’ll get to spot one and get that pot of gold!)
Lucky you, after all this you get to stop and take a break at the Torc Waterfall in the wooded area of Friar’s Glen. When people write about beautiful babbling brooks, they surely have the Torc Waterfall in mind!
Make a quick stop then in Killarney before venturing onwards to Limerick. All this is just a mere sample of what’s in store for you when you take the day tour of the Ring of Kerry with Paddywagon tours, so what are you waiting for? Book today and don’t miss out on this absolutely inspiring trip.
Not staying in Limerick? Don’t worry about missing out, this tour also departs regularly from Cork and Killarney as well as the all new Kerry day tour from Dublin which packs in all the best parts from both the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula day tours!
