The picture above just might answer that question. I took this during the week at Ladies View high in the mountains above Killarney. It was here that Queen Victoria stood spellbound and uttered those famous words, "This is the most beautiful view in the Kingdom".
My tours cover all of Ireland, but i find that most of my customers are fascinated by the tales they hear of the beauty of the western regions. They may wish to spend a couple of days in Dublin to explore this historic city at either the begining, or the end, of their vacation, and spend the rest of their time relaxing as they discover for themselves just how true the stories they have heard about Ireland actually are.
Visit Connemara, what we call "God's Country, which is also very often described as the "Quiet Man" country, and named after that famous movie, which starred John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara.
The Burren of County Clare, and the awesome Cliffs of Moher, are always high on my list, as are the Ring of Kerry, and the Dingle peninsula.
The counties of Kerry and Cork in the south west are magical to me with great mountain ranges and magnificent rugged coastlines. The islands offshore add to the beauty of this region, and there are many fine beaches with delicate soft golden white sand. Remember, we do have the Gulf stream here, which keeps the water at a lovely temperature for swimming.
