Touring the Reeks District & the Wild Atlantic Way
Explore the Kerry region from your base at Carrig…
The Reeks District
Carrig is in the heart of the Reeks District, named by Rough Guides as one of the top 6 places in the world to visit in 2019. From the sandy Blue Flag beaches of Inch and Rossbeigh to the lofty summit of Carrauntoohil, to the tranquil shores of Caragh Lake and the highly popular Puck Fair in Killorglin, this is an area not short of activity!
The Dingle Peninsula
The Dingle Peninsula is Europe’s most westerly point and is certainly well deserving of its numerous accolades for beauty and fantastic scenery. Ranking in the world’s top destinations, it offers a varied landscape of rugged green hills and mountains, extended golden sandy beaches and cliffs.
Not only does the area offer a varied landscape but it also offers a huge range of outdoor activities to suit everyone’s taste and interest from walking and hiking, cycling and horse riding, diving, golf, fishing and swimming… truely one of the great Kerry tours.
A deviation well-worth making away from the Ring of Kerry to the West will take you to the spectacular Skellig Islands. Sitting in the Atlantic Ocean, almost eight miles off the western coast of Ireland in West Kerry, these 2 islands rise out of the water like pyramids. Far from being manmade, the Skellig Islands are unique and dramatic rock formations made from 350 million year old Devonian sandstone. The Skellig Islands compromise Great Skellig (or Skellig Michael), a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Little Skellig. Each island is world famous in its own right and for different reasons.
Killarney Day Tour
For 250 years, the Killarney Day Tour has been one of the most famous visitor excursions in Ireland. Mountains, lakes, woodland & legend in scenery that has no equal worldwide. From Kate Kearney’s Cottage you will travel through the world famous Gap of Dunloe by pony and trap. Upon arriving at Lord Brandon’s Cottage you will board an open boat for a cruise along Killarney’s lakes toward the historic Ross Castle.
