Our tour starts from one of the most beautiful town in Ireland - Kenmare. As private tour, we can customise it. We can visit some places out of bitten tracks like really stunning Kerry Cliffs. Kerry Cliffs are up to 1K feet above a sea level, those cliffs are actually higher then Cliffs of Moher. We can stop whenever we want, also for food in some restaurant serving local people mostly. Private tour is great experience, it gives time and flexibility.
