Ireland: Ring of Kerry & Dingle Peninsula

This section of Ireland packs a real cultural and historical punch. Welcome to the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula – a land of rolling hills, serene beaches, national park and lakeside castles, all ready for you to explore. Embark on a five-day Intrepid adventure from Dublin, heading to the charming and historic Killarney region, along the rugged Ring of Kerry, and arriving at the scenic Dingle Peninsula. On the way, appreciate the history and local lore of Ross Castle, meet a custodian of Sean-nós singing in Dingle town, and spend the evenings doing as locals do – a hearty meal a the pub.

Let’s just say we know what travellers really want: a balance of inclusions and free time, a mix of classic highlights and local secrets you won’t find on Google.
