South West Ireland Vacation Packages


Southwest Ireland stretches from the Ring of Kerry in the south, the Dingle Peninsula in the west, through Killarney and north to Adare, and Limerick City, offering sea and mountain scenery, interspersed with lively small towns and villages plus medieval Castles and archaeological sites going back 5,000 years.

Cork with the world famous Blarney Castle, allegedly the source of the Irish ability to charm in conversation plus a landscape of unparalleled beauty, a coast with centers for sailing, swimming, scuba diving with golf, horseback riding and fishing a short step inland plus the area`s reputation as providing some of the best seafood in the country. Kerry is home to the Ring of Kerry skirting the Iveragh Peninsula, a succession of spectacular seascapes, the most scenic coastal drive in Ireland; Dingle Peninsula with ancient sites, sandy beaches and glimpses of a hard, unforgiving land. Then there are the crazy beautiful beehive huts on Skellig Michael; Killarney National Park, nestling between Killarney and Kenmare, which harbors the 19th-century Muckross House plus so much more. Then there is Limerick, home to several ancient sites and monuments including King John`s Castle in the City of Limerick and the round towers at Ardpatrick and Dysert. Lough Gur is one of the most important archaeological sites in Ireland with an excellent interpretative center revealing Neolithic life some 5,000 years ago.
