Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: The weather may be overcast so just deal with it, this means that a bus tour may have no views. It happened to me but you gotta remember it's Ireland and the weather is fickle. I took a bike around Killarney National Park w/overcast weather and it was still breathtaking, but importantly roll with the punches and have fun!

Liked: The people are super friendly and there's a lot of activities to do!

Disliked: Not really
