You might choose to visit CIE Tours preferred shopping partner Moriarty’s in the beautiful Gap of Dunloe, before embarking on the famed Ring of Kerry scenic drive. The winding 100-mile route reveals breathtaking coastal and mountain views, with plenty of photo stops. Pause for a casual lunch in The Moorings in Portmagee, then continue to Valentia Island, where you’ll visit the Skellig Experience; it tells the story of the neighboring island of Skellig Michael, which you’ll see off the coast. Learn how early Christian monks lived there in austere conditions, and how the island was used as a location for the “Star Wars” films. Stop for a stroll around the village of Sneem, with its brightly painted houses, and at Moll’s Gap for panoramic views of Ireland’s highest mountains. Return to Killarney to explore and dine independently.
