Day 2 – Muckross House & dinner and traditional Irish music
Morning at leisure in Killarney and you may choose to take a ride on Killarney’s famous horse-drawn Jaunting Cars – Muckross House was built for Henry Arthur Herbert and his wife, the water colourist Mary Balfour Herbert and is the fourth house that successive generations of the Herbert family have occupied over a period of almost two hundred years – tonight we have an evening out for dinner with traditional Irish music and entertainment.
Day 3 – The Ring of Kerry
Tour with a local guide of the spectacularly beautiful coastline of the Ring of Kerry starts in the village of Kenmare and continues to Molls Gap for the most fantastic view, Killorglin, Caherciveen and Glenbeigh.
Day 4 – Glengariff, boat trip to Garnish Island & Beara Peninsular
Morning at leisure in Glengariff, one of Ireland's most beautiful villages – an included boat trip to Garnish Island includes entrance to explore the scenic gardens followed by free time at leisure for lunch – with views of some of Ireland’s most staggering mountain, lake and coastal scenery, the tour of the Beara Peninsula passes numerous prehistoric stones and tombs.
Day 5 – Kinsale & Cobh and the Queenstown Story Visitors Centre
Originally a medieval fishing port and widely renowned as the gourmet capital of Ireland, Kinsale is one of the most picturesque, popular and historic towns on the south west coast – flight times permitting, at Cobh and the Queenstown Story Visitors Centre we discover one of the most important maritime naval bases in 19th century Europe that also served as the main Irish emigration centres to North America and Australia and was the last port of call for the ill-fated Titanic – transfer to Cork Airport for our flight back home.
