5 Day Brendan Tour
DAY 1: Cork to Dingle
Today we travel to the Dingle bay where not only nature, but also Dingle itself is incredibly beautiful. We stop at Inch Beach, where you will have plenty of time to wander along the peninsula of sand and get lost in your thoughts.
In the afternoon we visit the Dingle Whiskey Distillery (included), a small distillery which may include along with whiskey, vodka and gin tasting.
We spend the night in Dingle, which is an excellent place with lots of restaurants and lively pubs to linger to go out at night!
Overnight in Dingle
DAY 2: Dingle Peninsula
Isolated from the rest of Ireland by the impressive landscape, the Dingle Peninsula tour will take you where the locals go. We will 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 a wee hike on Dunmore head, we will sample the fresh seafood or and local craft beers in a nice cosy Irish Pub.
Overnight in Dingle
DAY 3: Ring of Kerry
Today we drive “the Ring of Kerry “, a journey through County Kerry with amazing views, high altitude and one of the most popular destinations for people visiting Ireland with stops regularly for spectacular photos.
From there we will stop and you can either opt for a three-hour walk to Valentia Island and Bray Head (included), take a boat trip to the UNESSCO World Heritage site of the Skellig Islands ( €50 extra – very weather dependant ) or opt to hire a bike and discover the island at your own pace (€15 extra).
After a full day of discovery, we will head back towards Killarney, through the unspoilt region of The Kerry Highlands.
Overnight in Killarney
DAY 4: Killarney to Cliffs of Moher
We take you away from all the hustle and bustle of the Cliffs of Moher visitor centre, and bring you on a stunning guided walk of the unspoilt region along the cliffs.
The walk is along a gravel path with flagstone steps cut out of the terrain to cross the drains and streams and on the steeper inclines. The trail is not a difficult walk; it requires a basic level of fitness and a good head for heights.
You will walk along until you reach the highest point of the Cliffs of Moher standing 214m (702 feet) above sea level, where views of the Dingle Peninsula and Loop Head in the South, the Aran Islands to the West with the Twelve Pins and mountains of Connemara to the North can be seen on a clear day.
After the hike, you will get the chance to experience a traditional Irish music night with some local craft beers in a nice cosy Irish Pub.
Overnight in Doolin.
DAY 5: Inis Oirr to Cork
Travel back in time! We spend a day on Inis Oirr, the smallest and less inhabited of the Aran Islands. The locals are fluent Irish (Gaelic) speakers and you’re free to explore the island and get chatting to them over a pint, miles of stone walls wait as you walk, hire a horse and cart or rent a bike to explore the island. You can’t miss the awe-inspiring Plassy Shipwreck. After a tremendous day it’s time to head back to the city of Cork and check into our accommodation.
Overnight in Cork
