Full description
On this 10-hour excursion to the Dingle Peninsula from Cork, you’ll make your way towards County Kerry and the town of Killarney, starting out at 08:30. Stop in charming Killarney, and enjoy a bit of time to explore the town before continuing on to Dingle. Your drive takes you through the Cork and Kerry mountains and then along the most westerly route in Europe, known as the Slea Head drive. Take in views of the Atlantic coast as you travel on a road that hugs the shoreline. Enjoy views of the Blasket Islands on a clear day, and maybe even see the Sleeping Giant. Visit Inch Beach, one of the best-known beaches in Ireland, and a site of outstanding natural beauty. Weather permitting you may choose to dip your feet in the Atlantic! Inch Beach, like many on the west coast, is well known among surfers. It has also featured in many films such as Far and Away, and Ryan's Daughter. You’ll also make a stop in Dingle town, one of the most picturesque fishing villages in Ireland. Dingle town is the heart and soul of the peninsula, and attracts visitors from around the world, including artists and musicians. Head back over the mountains to Cork, with an expected arrival time of 18:30.

Wonderful day

The excursion was nice, but the organization itself was quite complicated. Several times people were coming from other buses, then waiting for others. This took a lot of time, which in turn reduced the time spent in individual places. The views we saw were exciting. John was fun and cheerful.

Good way to see some beautiful countryside!

Jim was a great guide who shared a lot of interesting and detailed information about the places we visited. He also sings and tells stories! The scenery was gorgeous! Just wish we’d had more time at each spot. I think I’ll come back some day and just soend my time on the west coast!

Absolutely stunning views! The nature is very beautiful and the cliffs are just breathtaking! Bad, stormy weather makes it even look more epic. Driving along the Slea Head Drive might not be recommendable for people, who are afraid of heights. Killarney and Dingle are both pretty and cute towns. Would have loved to spend more time in Dingle than just an hour.
