Depart Killarney and make your way to Inch Beach to admire its 3-mile stretch of golden sand along the Atlantic Ocean. Get lovely views of the beach, known as a popular location site for movies including Ryan's Daughter and Playboy of the Western World. Continue to Slea Head, considered by many as one of the most beautiful peninsulas in the world. Travel the winding road through Gaelic-speaking Corca Dhuibhne, beginning at Ventry Beach.

Overall, it was a good trip. The driver (Paudie) was friendly, navigated well, and told excellent stories. We enjoyed hearing more about Ireland’s history based on what we saw. The stops had great views and it was beautiful. The only issue was that some of the other passengers were consistently late returning to the bus at stops, making the bus arrive back in town about thirty minutes late. This affected our evening reservations. Otherwise, good trip!

Very fun and interesting trip to Dingle. My complaint would be the awful, painful music the driver played on the way back to Killarney (I’m Irish, and generally enjoy good, authentic Irish music), and having to stop to pick up one person’s iPhone left at a stopping point earlier in the day, without advising anyone or apologizing for the 15 minute wait in the bus without the driver.

Residence times a little short

As with so many tourist trips, you only have a short time to take photos and then continue ... Staying in Dingle was only an hour! Just enough for a meal there. If you have the opportunity, you should go there by car! Many beautiful places cannot be reached by bus. You can also go on a boat tour from Dingle to watch dolphins ... take this with you when you are there! This was my second ride on the paddy wagon tour. I liked this better because the driver had a lot of fun but also interesting things to tell about Ireland and Country Kerry! Fortunately, the Irish accent wasn't too violent, so I understood almost everything. Not a matter of course :-)
