The town of Killarney is set on the Ring of Kerry which is a world famous touring route celebrated for its scenery. The day trip of the Gap of Dunloe can start and finish at the hotel's private pier and takes in a boat trip on the lakes in addition to the pony and trap journey through the Gap itself. Slea Head and Dingle are only an hour’s drive to the north-west of Killarney and the drive to Dingle is in itself a reason to take this trip. The charming town of Dingle and the rugged majestic landscape of Slea Head would take your breath away, a world apart from the lush, verdant beauty of Killarney and the lakes.
