Southern Tour of Ireland:  

The Experience

Explore some of the most beautiful and spectacular landscapes in Ireland on our Southern Tour of Ireland.  From the wild beauty of county Wicklow just south of the capital you will experience a monastic site like no other; complete with round tower and church from the 6th century. From there your tour will take you to one of the most magical places in Ireland, if not the world - the town of Dingle. Situated on the most south westerly point on the island, it really is a world away from everywhere.

Itinerary

Day 1
Where the adventure begins!
- Travel through the Dublin/Wicklow Mountains, over the Sally Gap
- View Guinness Lake (where a member of the Guinness family lives).
- Book you in our guest house in Glendalough and get our gear ready for our first 3hrs walk around Glendalough Monastic Site!

Day 2
- Travel to the south west of Ireland to the kingdom of Kerry.  En route we will stop in the cute Irish village of Adare before we head directly for Dingle Village.
- We will drive through Annascaul Village and make a stop for a quick drink in the South Pole Inn.
- We will then stop at Beenbane beach and take the cliff walk into Dingle Village - a wonderful way to arrive to this magical little corner of Ireland!

Day 3
- For the third day we get ourselves ready for an amazing walk up Mount Brandon. 
- We will drive over the famous Conor Pass where you will enjoy amazing views of the Dingle Peninsula and Mountain Brandon. You will enjoy four hours of splendid view of the Blasket Islands on one side and all the way to Tralee on the other. 
- Head back to Dingle and you will have the option to see, swim or kayak with Fungi, a wild dolphin that calls Dingle his home.

Day 4
- We will meander slowly through the gorgeous fuchsia lined roads of Slea Head, a peninsula that the National Geographic has put in the top 10 drives in the world, and follow the cliffs around to our view point of Great Blasket Island.
- Nice and easy walk with spectacular views out to the Atlantic and Dead Man’s Island. Right on Ireland's rugged west coast, this is the closest you can get to the United States from Europe.
- Your walk will finish in the village of Ballyferriter, a Gaeltacht area, where all the locals speak in Ireland’s native tongue.

Day 5
- On the fith day you will xperience one of the most beautiful walks you will find in all of Ireland through The Gap of Dunloe.  The 'Gap' stretches through the highest mountain range in Ireland called the MacGuillicuddy Reeks. This spectacular glacial valley simply must be experienced to be fully appreciated. The walk will take you through the gap and you will finish on the far side.  From there, a river boat will take you on an hour long boat ride through the lakes of Killarney finishing at Ross Castle a short walk from Killarney village.  

Day 6
- We now make our way up the west coast and cross the river Shannon by ferry at Tarbert. The river Shannon is the spine of Ireland, dividing the land in two. It won’t be long before arriving in the Burren and getting to see the Cliffs of Moher. Heading just up the road, we may stop at Brigid’s Well before we get a start on our walk along the amazing Cliffs Of Moher. Living on the edge is fantastic but at these cliffs, it is advisable to stay away from the 214m high cliff edges. Enjoy the mesmerising scenery a safe distance from the edge and marvel at the rugged cliffs, views and the ocean below. This walk is truly amazing!

Day 7
- This morning we will walk through this karst limestone region that covers 250 square miles. You can walk these rocky pavements and feel like you are walking on the moon!  After leaving Lahinch early in the morning, we will follow the coast all the way to Galway. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and with heavy hearts we will bid farewell to some wonderful friends made along this 'Southern Gem tour'.
