Resort Information

The delightful village of Glengarriff is overlooked by Bantry Bay and set against the backdrop of the rugged Caha Mountains. A green oasis, it boasts a lush, shore-side Bamboo Park and nearby Nature Reserve packed with unusual species, as well as a selection of bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. Garinish Island, just a short boat trip across the bay, offers more horticultural delights.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Cork Airport, meet your Tour Manager and enjoy the scenic transfer west to Glengarriff and your hotel. After checking in, and depending on the time of your flight, you're free to spend the rest of the day exploring the village.

Day Two

Discover the wild and remote Beara Peninsula on this morning's excursion. Tiny islets dot the water, while the great fishing port of Castletownbere and fantastic views from the road that winds westwards add to the scenic appeal. This afternoon, enjoy Glengarriff and its surroundings, perhaps taking a boat across to Garinish Island and its horticultural treasures.

Day Three

Today you'll explore delightful West Cork. Visit famous Kinsale, in its glorious setting at the mouth of the Bandon River, and enjoy gourmet treats at one of the many vibrant quayside cafes. You'll also visit historic, bustling regional centre Skibbereen, as well as journeying along the spectacular Atlantic coastline.

Day Four

Travel north from Glengarriff into County Kerry, where the Killarney National Park is home to spectacular lakeland scenery overlooked by famous Macgillycuddy's Reeks. Discover Lakes Leane, Muckross and Upper, explore Killarney town with its great St Mary's Cathedral, and visit Muckross House - one of Ireland's finest stately homes - and its ancient friary.

Day Five

Our final excursion is to the fabled 'Ring of Kerry', the sublimely beautiful lakes and mountains paradise of the Iveragh Peninsula. You'll cross the magnificent Coomakista Pass, with its views of the Kenmare River, catch sight of Macgillycuddy's Reeks from Molls Gap, and explore places like genteel Waterville and rugged Cahersiveen, before returning to the hotel.

Day Six

Bid farewell to Glengarriff, boarding the coach for the transfer back to Cork Airport and your flight home.

Swindon Friends
We enjoyed the holiday but the hotel was quite basic. In particular the food was uninteresting and very repetitive. The siting of the hotel was good and from the front rooms the views over Bantry Bay were stunning but from the back it was dismal. Newmarket really does need to find another hotel for this trip.

coach journeys each day was too long ,twisty and bumpy roads,we passed thru some lovely places where if we had been in a car we would have stopped but the coach was unable to,cannot pull in at a small country pub and pitch up with 40+ people and expect to get a meal,no not for me,mind we were one of the youngest there and at nearly 70 that's shows the age of the customers who like this type of holiday.

BARRY

Maryland, USA Family
As a first holiday to Ireland, I have nothing to rate it against. Travel arrangements were excellent. I thought the hotel was well worth the price and the staff was great. The placement of the hotel was quite distant from the places visited, therefore it took time away from the attractions for travel. Overall, it was very very good.

Travelling excellent but too much of it and not enough time to look around Townships. I would have loved more time in Killarney but opted to go on jogging cart and didn't have time to see it. I know Ireland has changed but didn't recognise places. Only Killorglin. The Driver John was an excellent driver but journeys were far too long.
