You’ll see the gorgeous, quiet countryside of Killarney and County Clare, with thatched cottages that look like something out of a fairytale. Browse shops and, if you’re up for it, visit the mighty Cliffs of Moher—heads up, be prepared for some heavy breezes! While this stop will have a bit of walking to the cliffs and some misty weather, we think the view is absolutely worth it.
The quaint, charming city of Galway is a traveler favorite, with many pubs, restaurants, shops, and walking paths to explore. If you’ve ever heard of the famed Claddagh Ring, here’s the place to purchase the souvenir.
A self-drive tour of the Ring of Kerry is a perfect day tip! You may go at your own pace, make stops as you wish, and view the beautiful coastal inlets, rolling countryside, and breathe in the fresh sea air. The circuit takes about 3.5 hours, and you’ll take in views you’ll remember forever.
