Killarney, Cork & the Ring of Kerry  
7 Day Glenton Select Holiday 

It is little wonder the locals are so proud of vibrant Killarney and its incredibly beautiful countryside. Famed for its many festivals, carnivals and lake regattas, Killarney is the Emerald Isle’s premier tourist destination.

We also visit the seaport city of Cork and the breathtaking Ring of Kerry – a mystical, unspoilt region that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Its beauty is beyond question but it also offers an amazing insight into the country’s ancient heritage with Iron Age Forts, old monasteries and a landscape carved out of rock by the last Ice Age ten thousand years ago!
