A tour that takes in the stunning remote beauty of the Beara peninsula, the unique beauty of Gougane Barra along with the bustling character of Killarney and its lakes. Shadowed by mountains and adjacent to Muckross National Park, Killarney has been impressing visitors with its dramatic scenery, long before Queen Victoria made it fashionable. Our Safari winds its way through the National Park, passing by the famous "Ladies View", to bring us to the coast and the picturesque town of Kenmare. We then make our way out along the Beara Peninsula following its Northern Edge with its stunning vistas and colourful villages of Eyeries and Allihies. Castletownbere offers an obligatory pint at the famous McCarthy's bar before we take in the views and vistas afforded by the southern side of the peninsula. We continue on to the village of Glengarriff which gives us a chance to visit the magnificent Garnish Island. The serenity of the glacial valley of Gougane Barra is a wonderful overnight stop before completing our loop by returning to Killarney for a final night together.
