ITINERARY

 

DAY 1: Cork to Killarney

You have a full free day to fully explore everything on offer. Killarney is a great place to spend a full day, no matter what your past-time of choice is. Options include: kayaking on the lakes of Killarney, rock climbing or hiking through glaciated valleys, biking through the National park, climb Torc Mountain for amazing views, or just enjoy the stunning scenery and do nothing. Optional activities are at your own expense.

Accommodation located close to the town and park.


DAY 2: Killarney to Valentia Island

This morning we drive “the Ring of Kerry “, a journey through County Kerry with amazing views at high altitude 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 around the  UNESCO World Heritage site of the Skellig Islands ( €50 extra – very weather dependent ) or opt to hire a bike and discover the island at your own pace (€15 extra).

After a full day of discovery, we will check into our accommodation in the picturesque fishing village of Portmagee. This is also one of the best places in Ireland to join an evening stargazing.


DAY 3: 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.

Arriving in back in Dingle town, you can choose to go sea kayaking around Dingle harbour, horse riding on the foothills and beaches or SUP boarding in the sea (included).

In the evening we visit the Dingle Whiskey Distillery (included), a small distillery which includes generous tastings of whiskey, vodka and gin.

We spend the night in Dingle, where we will sample the fresh seafood or and local craft beers in a nice cosy Irish Pub.

Overnight in accommodation at the edge of  Dingle


DAY 4: Dingle 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. This is where your Irish Adventure ends, we hope you have enjoyed your time spent with us!
