Killarney & the Ring of Kerry

Killarney & the Ring of Kerry

A warm welcome always awaits visitors to this lovely part of Ireland.

Relatively untouched, here the dramatic scenery with magnificent cliffs is stunning, and the area is probably best known for its largely unspoilt, rugged coastline.


Tour highlights:

  • Ring of Kerry 

  • Jaunting car ride

  • Old Midleton Distillery

  • Dingle 

  • Cork


This Sapphire Star Holiday includes our door-to-door home collection service.

Day 6

We bid farewell to our hosts after breakfast and travel to Cork which, like Venice, has grown from a series of islands in a medieval marsh into a cosmopolitan city. We have time for shopping and to purchase lunch before we continue to Midleton, home of the Old Midleton Distillery, part of the vast Irish Distillers group famous for Jameson, Bushmills, Tullamore Dew and the local brew ‘Paddys’. We include entrance to the museum, which has the largest pot still in the world, depicting the story of Irish whiskey, and a tour of the old distillery complete with a whiskey tasting. We continue to the Maldron Hotel in Wexford for our final night’s accommodation.

Day 7

After an early breakfast, we make the short drive to Rosslare for the morning ferry to Fishguard. We continue the homeward journey across Wales, returning to East Anglia mid evening, where our door to door service waits to return you home.
