10:30 AM
East Avenue Road Killarney , Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland
Meet your coach for mid-morning pickup in central Killarney. Once aboard, sit back and relax as you journey west along Ireland’s rocky Atlantic coast to Dingle Peninsula. Marvel at the majestic landscape dotted with scenes of Irish life, and stop to explore wind-swept beaches, formidable cliffs, and unique flora and fauna. Your coach passes Inch Beach, a favorite location for peace-seeking kite flyers and surfers.

Head into the lovely town of Dingle, where you break to have lunch (own expense), explore the town’s vibrant and colorful streets, and perhaps spot Fungie, Dingle’s famed local dolphin. Sweets enthusiasts won’t want to miss a stop at Murphy’s for some signature local ice cream!

Afterward, continue on to Slea Head, the most westerly point in Europe. Along the way, glimpse beehive-shaped huts and life in the Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) communities that line the route. At Slea Head, imagine the excitement that westward emigrants experienced in passing this point, and enjoy wonderful views of the Blasket Islands, a desolate area that was once inhabited by thriving Irish-speaking islanders.

On the return trip to Killarney, your coach will stop at Gallarus Oratory, one of the region’s mysterious archeological gems. Walk through the site that is considered the best-preserved early Christian church in Ireland, and enjoy stunning views of Smerwick Harbor and Mount Brandon.

Your tour returns to the departure point in Killarney by early evening.

The Dingle Penninsula is a must see. Beautiful scenery. Loved the town of Dingle. Our tour guide was great and the bus driver had some very tough driving with some hairpin turns which he mastered perfectly.

Terrible tour. Waste of money. The driver (also tour guide) was very hard to hear and would not use a head phone. He drove to the major sight points but only stopped for 5 minutes to take photos and then gave us 2 hours in the touristy Dingle town. Started at 10:30 and we’re back bef4 pm. The mini bus was uncomfortable and hard to see from the small windows especially for those sitting in the middle.

Our Tour Guide Batt was funny and entertaining. He did an excellent job and made the tour very enjoyable for our first visit to Ireland. We wish we could stay longer than 1.5 hours in Dingle - 1.5 hours including lunch was a bit rush. Great weather! Thanks.

We were lucky with weather. Grate day. 4stars only as in my opinion too few photos stops. i did not see Gladius Oratory (pity). We had 3 foto stops before Dingle. In Dingle town 2 hours for me bit too long but I understand that other guests would love to enjoy lunch. Otherwise very good, grate scenary.

The scenery is beautiful and definitely worth a visit! If you don't want to drive yourself, the tour is a good alternative. Our guide was also very relaxed and friendly. However, we only stopped at 3 viewing points before going to Dingle and didn't even see the most popular spots (Dunquin etc.). At the stops we only had 5-15 minutes, which was enough to take a quick photo but not enough to enjoy the view, especially since it was very windy. The 1,5 hour stop at Dingle was probably enough to see the town but not enough to have lunch, if you wanted to walk around as well. The price was a bit too much in my opinion. Overall an okay tour but if you have the chance to rent a car, I would certainly recommend driving around by yourself.

We had an amazing day on this tour! We were able to see so many things throughout the day including multiple stops on the way to take pictures of the beautiful views. It definitely helped that we had great weather. Morris, our driver and guide, was great and extremely informative! I would absolutely suggest this tour if you are in the area.

Adventures on a bus

I did this trip with three friends last week. We were the youngest on the bus but we had a grand time exploring different parts of the wild Atlantic way and dingle. The tour guide Ray from deros bus tour had a great sense of humor and knew his history. He also was great at storytelling, but that is what one should expect in ireland. Even though it rained a little the stops were pleasant and the scenery was beautiful. Definitely recommend Murphy's icecream in Dingle.

Our guide Ray provided 7 hours of Irish history, folklore and humor as we negotiated narrow roads. The beauty of southern Irish coastline offered frequent photo stops to enjoy the beauty. Our lunch stop in Dingle included plenty of time for a meal, a pint, and shopping.

We had an absolutely fantastic tour of Dingle and Slea Head. Our tour guide/bus drive, Ray, was truly outstanding. We loved his narrative and learned so much from him. And he was so gracious, thoughtful and truly kind. What a great person. Thank you Ray for such a lovely day!

Best day in Ireland!

My fiancé and I took one of the best tours either of us have ever went on. We did the “Full day tour of the Dingle Peninsula, slea head and inch beach”. The tour started out by stopping at a cute, drive on beach (Inch). There we were able to take in beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean with a backdrop of mountains. We stayed there for about :30 minutes, which was a nice break from the drive. On our way to Slea Head drive, our tour guide couldn’t have been funnier, more knowledgeable or pleasant. He was truly a pleasure to be around and he seemed to really enjoy what he does. He would take pictures for everyone, wave on traffic and say hello to anyone who was around. He stopped multiple times at various points throughout the drive at scenic views that you can only experience in West Southern Ireland. One of our favorite parts of the tour was when we stopped for a “meet and greet” with the lambs. There we were able to hold, take pictures and be around them for about 15 minutes (it does cost 3 euro each but totally worth it). On our way around Slea head drive, we stopped in one of the more beautiful towns in all of Ireland, Dingle Harbour. We stopped for approximately an hour and a half. In Dingle, we ate lunch at a beautiful restaurant overlooking the harbor that had not only spectacular views but delicious food and drink. We would highly recommend eating at Boat Harbor if you have the time, especially out on the patio. Overall, the tour couldn’t have been better. I can’t tell you how great our tour guide was and we would highly recommend using this company and going on this tour while in Killarney. 5 stars all around! P.S. Ask for Betty – he made it all worthwhile. Slainte!
