Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Spend a full day away from the ship exploring some of Ireland's most treasured landmarks, as well as enjoying a drive through magnificent countryside. Your guide and motorcoach driver will meet you at the port, and once everyone is on board you will head out from Cobh, passing small farms and small villages, en route to County Kerry. This fabulous drive climbs the Derrynasaggart Mountains to Killarney National Park, which boasts stunning views of the tree-lined lakes, against a backdrop of mountain peaks.

Stop in a local hotel in Ballyvourney, were there will be a tea/coffee and scones served, to set you up for a day of exploration in the beautiful Muckross and Killarney.

Travel to Muckross, where you will have the opportunity to photograph the glorious Muckross House, a 19th-century manor house that boasts a superb rhododendron garden and sunken garden. Originally a private estate, the house was presented to the Irish government in 1932, and is renowned for its gorgeous views of the second largest of the Killarney Lakes. You will have time for a short walk through the gardens.

Afterwards you will be taken to the center of Killarney town where you will stop for a delicious lunch in a local restaurant before having some free time to independently explore the town itself.

Then stretch your legs as you browse the many quaint shops in Killarney town. Your return journey back to Cobh will allow you some time to relax and enjoy the passing scenery as you think back on your time in Co. Kerry
