This five day tour will visit the three prominent peninsulas of Southwest Ireland, that's Dingle, Iveragh and Beara. Here you will ride round the beautiful Ring of Kerry, see Ireland's highest mountain, ride some stunning coastline and have the option to spend some time in the vibrant town of Killarney.
This tour will depart at 0930hrs from the greater Belfast area on Friday 31st August 2018, we will also be able to meet anyone travelling on the breakfast time Irish Ferries or Stena Line ferries from Holyhead in Wales to the Port of Dublin with a rendezvous at the port at approximately 1230hrs.
From Dublin we will ride across the southern counties of Ireland to counties Cork and Kerry where we will spend the next four nights split between two comfortable hotels.
The "Ring of Kerry".
The next three days will offer you a choice of activities, our tour manager will be leading a run round each of the three peninsulas, one on each day... or if you wish to do your own exploring around Killarney and the lakes - all nearby, you are free to do so.
The Dingle Peninsula juts out into the Atlantic Ocean - Ireland's most westerly point. Here Mount Brandon and other hills majestically soar over unspoiled valleys and sparkling mountain streams tumble to the lakes below, ride over the Conor pass, see the offshore Blasket Islands if the day's clear, maybe spot a dolphin in Dingle's sheltered bay, and lots more. The peninsula is a Gaeltacht, an area where the Irish Language is practised.

The Iveragh Peninsula is home to the famous Ring of Kerry scenic drive, we'll go around in the direction least favoured by the tourist coaches. We'll make a few detours off the main road to let you see some of the stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and views of Ireland's highest mountain, Carrantuohill, if it's clear.
The lesser known Beara Peninsula sees us crossing into County Cork for part of the day. The Gulf Stream influences the flora of this part of Ireland, allowing many species of sub tropical plant to survive, you'll notice this as we follow the road mostly around the coast through the pretty towns and villages. We will also cross the Caha Mountains and the twisting Healey Pass during the course of the day.
View from the Healey Pass
