Resort Information

One of Ireland's most picturesque settlements, Tralee offers a variety of attractions. Discover the town's medieval past at the Kerry County Museum, or explore the restored Blennerville Windmill (about a 10-minute drive from the town centre), which features an audio-visual presentation and a birdwatching platform.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Cork, where you will meet your Tour Manager and enjoy the scenic transfer to Tralee. After checking in at your hotel, and depending on the time of your flight, the rest of the day is yours to unpack and to explore the town.

Day Two

This morning we will head to the Killarney National Park. Here you will enjoy an hour-long ride in a horse-drawn jaunting car (Ireland's most traditional mode of transport, and the only kind allowed in this area), during which your driver will spin tales of local legends and Irish history.

We'll then board the MV Pride of the Lakes for a cruise on beautiful Lough Leane. There really is no better way to enjoy the Park's hidden delights and the famous Killarney Lakes. After time to have lunch and explore the town of Killarney itself we'll return to our hotel.

Day Three

Today's tour of the rugged Dingle Peninsula will reveal its outstanding mountain and coastal scenery, inspiration for such films as 'Ryan's Daughter' and 'Far and Away'.

At Slea Head, Europe's most westerly point, we'll visit the Blasket Island Heritage Centre for a fascinating insight into the unique community that inhabited the islands until their evacuation in 1953.

There will also be time to explore the peninsula's main town - the lively fishing port of Dingle, with its arts and crafts shops, pubs and cafes.

Day Four

Dating from the 15th Century, Bunratty Castle (entry payable locally) is the most complete and authentic medieval castle in Ireland. It has been carefully restored to its former splendour, while turn-of-the-century Irish village life has been recreated in the adjoining Folk Park.

A visit to Adare, one of Ireland's loveliest villages, completes the day. Dating back to AD 1200, the village is steeped in history. It's home to arts and crafts shops and a wealth of architectural styles, including thatched cottages, beautiful stone buildings and medieval monasteries.

Day Five

Today's final tour traces the spectacular Ring of Kerry around the Iveragh Peninsula. Visit the towns that dot the route, and witness its wonderful natural beauty. Highlights include the magnificent Coomakista Pass, and the views of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks and the glaciated Black Valley from Molls Gap.

Day Six

Bid farewell to Tralee as we return to the airport to check in for your flight home.

Tour guide Francis very well informed and entertaining the coach driver John
was excellent.The hotel staff and rooms were good but the menus left a little
to be desired ie braised steak tough! also the hotel did not seem to consider
the guests when they were asked to change their time table one evening to
accomodate guests going to Celtic Steps performance.

Derby Single traveller
In retrospect probably wrong holiday for me - not as a single traveller but because I found it a bit touristy. I, along with others, felt would have liked more time at places like Inch, Waterville & definitely Bunratty Castle and Folk Park. Sneem & Dingle didn't impress at all. Not having been to Ireland before, now feel best way to really be able to appreciate the beauty of the SW is by independent travel. Obviously, that is a personal opinion and would not stop me recommending Newmarket or the holiday to others. Hotel and their staff excellent, though dinners could have been a bit more imaginative, especially re potato selection. Being on my own found the large round tables great as it was easier to mix. Transfers from airport excellent and not having to wait for other flights.

Enjoyed every minute. Southern Island is beautiful, people are friendly and very hospitable, love their humour. The tours were excellent, would not have seen half of much if we had gone under own steam. Courier was excellent and also the coach driver.

A beautiful area to visit. Decent quality hotel with good sized rooms. The meals were a little mundane. The daily excursions were a bit hit and miss - needed extra time in some locations and less in others.
