  • The Ring of Kerry and everything in this area is amazing. You will want to spend several days in this area! So much to explore and enjoy! The horse drawn carriage ride takes you by some wonderful sites and to the falls so you'll defiantly want to take advantage of it.
  • What a great time, we walked through the beautiful trails and experienced Ireland's nature while surrounded by rain. There were horse drawn carriages and a cute little cafe. A great playground for kids and great hiking/walking trails for everyone to enjoy. Parking can be a little rough, so be patient. Enjoys nature's glory, and check out this park
