Day 1: Dingle Peninsula
Today is a truly magnificent day full of jaw dropping scenery, amazing coastal walks, secluded beaches and tasty local produce.
We begin our day with a stroll along Inch Beach. Famous for movie scenes and popular with surfers, walk along the long , wide and serene stretch of beach and get lost in you thoughts.
From there it’s onward to the Slea Head drive. This is a stunning and dramatic drive tour of the edge of Europe. With it’s sheer cliff side drops on onside and the patchwork green fields on the other side. Plenty of splendid photo stops combined with stories of Irish folklore, local legends and historical information.
Isolated from the rest of Ireland by the impressive landscape, this Dingle Peninsula hiking tour will take you where the locals go. Follow a coastal trail on windswept cliffs, perched above beautiful coastlines. This amazing guided tour takes you along the spectacular Wild Atlantic Way as you experience the most dramatic scenery that Ireland has to offer.
After the hike, you will get the chance to sample the fresh seafood and local craft beers in a nice cosy Irish pub. Discover the bustling and colourful Dingle harbour town. For the active traveller who wants to experience a real slice of Irish life, this compact day adventure tops the menu.
Tips: If the weather is good bring a packed lunch to have on the rocks overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Taste any of the local brews in Dingle town, whiskey, gin, Tom Crean Larger or West Kerry Ale.
Day 2: Ring of Kerry
After we check out of the hostel , we then continue to Ireland’s most famous circular trail , The Ring of Kerry. This trail is 180km in circular length around south Kerry and includes some of the most thrilling routes in all of Ireland.
Our first stop is at an optional engaging sheep dog demonstration with local farmer Brendan. This is a true Irish experience as Brendan takes you through the many skills of a sheep farmer and sheep dog, in a very witty and humorous way.
From there we break away from the tourist trail and visit Valentia Island, with the welcoming views of the Skellig Islands, made famous through the new Star Wars movie.
Onward and upwards to the Coomakissta Pass and then we descend into tropical park of Derrynane. Discover the secluded white strand beach and the magical fairy forest.
We also visit Torc Waterfall before making our way back to our pick up point, as we bid you farewell until another day.
Tips: Scramble along the rocks of Derrynane strand, visit Abbey island and make sure you sample Murphys Ice Cream, made from creamy milk of the Kerry cow.
