A suggested add on:

Day 1 – Skibbereen to Kerry

Wild Atlantic Way

Drive the Wild Atlantic Way to county Kerry over the beautiful and scenic Cork & Kerry Mountains to your luxury Hotel overlooking the Wild Atlantic.

 

Day 2 - Ring of Kerry & Skellig Michal Landing Trip

Experience the raw beauty of 179kms (111 miles) of the country’s most scenic peninsula routes round the Iveragh Peninsula in southwest Ireland’s County Kerry. The combination of rugged sea, spectacular mountains and small traditional villages will not fail to impress. Skellig Michael, a rocky island with an abandoned 7th-century Christian monastery, is a major destination point. The spectacular views are world famous.

Landing at Skellig Michael you’ll climb the original 6th century steps to one of the oldest and best-preserved monasteries in Europe. As you’re climbing the 600 steps, you’ll wonder why anyone would live on such a remote rock in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. When you reach the site of the monastery you begin to understand. A truly unique and spectacular experience!

After to Skellig Trip - Port Magee to the Dingle Peninsula

The second of the Kerry peninsulas, this is beautiful drive. This remote place is steeped in history and the views are dramatically beautiful. The area is a “Gaeltacht” region where the people speak the Irish language as their first language and alot of Ireland's old traditions are kept alive. Famous for the stunning sea views and remote landscape, the winding roads and huge beaches are beautiful. Stop in the lovely Dingle town for fish and chips and visit the shops with local crafts.
