Full description
The Ring of Kerry boasts some of the finest coastal scenery in Europe and provides insights into the ancient heritage of Ireland. See stone forts, standing stones, and a landscape carved out of rock by the last ice age, some 10,000 years ago. Your journey begins on the official Ring of Kerry driving route, where you’ll begin to see views of the famous mountains and lakes of Kerry. Pass through Killorglin, home to the ancient Celtic festival, when a goat is crowned king of the village. See the statue of King Puck as you cross the River Laune. As your drive continues, you’ll have amazing views of Dingle Bay. See the famed Inch Beach and you may even see the Blasket Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The picturesque little village of Waterville overlooks Ballinskelligs Bay, best known for the Skellig Rocks with their early Christian monastery. Charlie Chaplin loved Waterville and was a regular visitor. You’ll see a statue in his honor, unveiled in 1998. En route to Sneem you’ll make brief stops at some of the most famous viewing points in Ireland. Visit the colorful village before continuing on your Ring of Kerry route. Killarney National Park is considered by many to be the most beautiful national park in Ireland. Take in the magnificent views of the Lakes of Killarney and Black Valley during stops at Moll’s Gap and Ladies View. Torc Waterfall, 18 meters high, cascades through the wooded Friars Glenn. Enjoy a break here before continuing to Killarney. When you reach Killarney you’ll have time to relax and grab some refreshments before departing for Limerick, where you’ll arrive at around 7:30 PM.

A waste of a day with Paddywagon tours. Use another company.

We were looking forward to the Ring of Kerry tour but it was the least enjoyable tour that we took during our visit to Ireland. The driver, Jamie, should not do this for a living. You could tell he was just not into driving a bunch of tourists around. He almost put us to sleep. Thought we may be the only ones on the bus feeling this way but after talking to others it was a fact a lot felt this way. Started the tour with stopping at a strip mall which we had to wait for Jamie to pick us up, we were there for 1 hour. Nothing but a strip mall coffee shop and stores that had no interest to anyone. First driver Jimmy is telling everyone about all these great places to eat and visit but we had no time for it. Why would they do this to paying customers, we had a full bus that transferred to his bus?? Does Paddywagon Tours have a shortage of buses? I would never recommend Paddywagon to anyone.

Not a Paddywagon fan.

First, let me say the weather was not that nice the day we went. However, the drivers (yes - one from Limerick to Killarney and another bus and driver on the tour) influenced the passengers to go on specific tours or eat at specific places with way to much emphasis. For example, he said shops were not open Sunday morning and we should consider a tour of the national park on carriage ride with a specific driver. Shops were open, perhaps not all, but a lot. Another example was lunch. Driver strongly suggested a certain restaurant where he ate, saying if you went elsewhere you may not get your food in time. As noted earlier, weather was not great. We did not have hardly any photo stops or opportunities. A dog riding a donkey at a roadside stand and the Torc Waterfalls were the two best highlights. A very long day on a crowded bus, so I don’t know that I recommend this tour.
