County Kerry Transportation

  • Bus.....

    Killarney Transportation

    Give your self a break from driving & let the experts guide you around the Ring of Kerry. It isn't the easiest place to drive & the buses tend to take priority - being so much bigger guarantees priority parking at the main stopping places. The driver's craic will keep you & your fellow tourists entertained with lots of useful local information.

    Dingle Transportation

    I know there is daily bus service because I met someone who had just arrived from Killarny. Ireland isn't well known for an efficient bus system and she was upset about the delays encountered along her journey. She arrived at 9:00PM and the scheduled arrival in Dingle was supposed to have been at 6:30PM. So at least one bus a day from Killarney,...

  • Traffic

    Tralee Transportation

    With the narrow streets, the traffic was very congested every place we went in town and at every time of day. Not to mention, they drive on the opposite side to what we are used to in the USA, which made even crossing the street on foot interesting, to say the least. Its not that far to anywhere, and I'd really suggest you plan to walk almost any...

  • Murphy Sea Cruise

    Great Skelligs Transportation

    There are only 156 people allowed on the island each day-13 boats with 12 people in each. The fare in July was 45euro. All the boats are open so you can get very wet in rough seas. I found one covered boat from Ballinskelligs-this cost 50 Euro but was well wortyh the extra charge. We watched people on other boats arrive cold wet and shivering...

  • Car Ferry

    County Kerry Transportation

    The mouth of the river Shannon is quite wide and long at the westcoast of Ireland and there is an interesting ferry-connection between the villages of Tarbert in County Kerry and Killimer in County Clare. Instead of driving 137 extra km ( 85 miles )you simply have to wait a few minutes for the ferry, pay around 13 Euros one way for cars and small...

  • Jaunting Carts

    Killarney Transportation

    You will see the drivers with their wonderful horses just waiting to take you on a drive around Killarney. Even in the cold and wind they are there ready to help you (if need be ) into one of the carriages. If it is cold you will love to put one of their rugs around you as you clip clop around this very beautiful place with its sparkling streams...

    Dingle Transportation

    Two roads to Dingle. From the north via Tralee and Conor Pass or from the east via Killarney, Inch Beach and the southern end of the Dingle Peninsula. Both are scenic and well worth the drive. We drove into Dingle by Conor Pass and then the eastern road to Killarney when we left Dingle. But I wish I had known about the southern route on my way to...

  • Airport

    Tralee Transportation

    Kerry county airport (also called Farranfore) is situated a a dozen or so miles away, roughly halfway to Killarney. It might be one of the world's most scenic places to land, but the range of flights is very limited. Presently Aer Arann will get you to Dublin (Ryanair gave up on that one) whilst Ryanair connect to Stansted (UK), Hahn (Germany), as...

  • Trains

    Killarney Transportation

    Killarney is on the Tralee-Dublin train line. It is about 4 hours to get to Dublin from there. If you want to go to Limerick or Cork by train, you will have to change trains at either Limerick Junction or Millstreet. To go to any other town, its best to either rent a car or get the bus

  • Bus Eireann

    For the Ring of Kerry Tour - I did it with Bus Eireann. My friend booked it the day before at the Cork Bus Station, it cost €16 for the 12hr trip.As you can see from the intro to this page we hit all the main spots in Kerry (on the Ring) - we also stopped briefly at Blarney to pick up and later drop off some more passengers.Bus Eireann was a...

  • Driving the Ring of Kerry

    Begin your road tour of the Ring of Kerry or the Dingle peninsula early in the morning. Once the mass of tourists and buses get on the road things can get a bit slow, especially climbing the hills on the south side of the Ring of Kerry and along the Dingle. Traffic in Sneem, Kenmare, Killorgin, and Tralee can also be frustrating so avoid them if...

  • Good Roads

    We found the roads in this part of Ireland to be no different from the rest - they were quite good and provided many chances for great views! However, we had a very good road map that required constant consulting - a map is a must if you are going to be travelling on the back roads!! This photo shows the two of us taking in the scene from a parking...

  • Narrow Roads - Fast traffic

    I did not rent a car in Ireland (or England) because I did not trust myself to drive on the wrong side of the street in a strange place with only my grandson to read the map and direct me. I wanted to take photos, and I would have had to find a place to stop to do that. Normally when I am with my husband, he drives and I take pictures. Stopping to...

  • Tour Buses and Cars

    I did not see any public transportation in the area. So probably the best bet for viewing Dingle Bay is either a coach (aka tour bus) or a rental car. People say that there are so many coaches lined up on the Ring of Kerry in the summer that you can't see the view. We were there early in June, so it wasn't so bad, but even so, we played tag with...

  • Car trouble in County Kerry

    Whilst driving in County Kerry we had a bit of car trouble - a small wheel from a passing car trailer flew off and hit our tyre.A little while later, when we stopped for lunch in Listowel, we discovered a bubble had formed on the tyre, and it was not safe to drive with and would have to be replaced.We called the AA, due to issues with removing the...

  • take a Jaunting Car in Muckross Park

    You may take such a Jaunting Car in order to explore Muckross Park. At the large car-parks outside of the Park you will see plenty of them, chasing for their customers.Such a ride takes mostly about 45 minutes and these carriages may take between 4 and 8 persons. I do not remember the price, but it was not so very much and you may fix a price in...

  • a car is the best option for Co. Kerry

    Driving around County Kerry in a car or motorhome is certainly the very best option, even though most of the roads are quite narrow and you have to share them with all sorts of cattle.Drivers will have to calculate a lot of extra-time,especially when they are driving side-roads like on my picture.Beware of the dogs - they really take good care of...

  • Car Hire

    It is probably possible to get around Kerry by public transport, but if time is limited and you want to get to the out of the way places, then it is beat to hire a car.We used Europcar and pre-booked in the UK to pick up at Cork Airport.It was about £140.00 for a week.Beware costs for extra drivers and additional insurance though. (we didn't...

  • Own transport a must

    In Kerry you should definitely have your own car. I know that I would go mad if I was stuck on a bus in Kerry and could not stop every couple of minutes to take another picture of the scenery which changes at every turn of the road. With your own car you can also go off the main tourist routes and find your own favourite spot in Kerry, and you will...

However, you still need a car in this part of the world.Tralee Rail Station: +353 667123522 Another station in Tralee worth a look is Blennerville station.-------------------------...

    SKELLIG MICHAEL:The quickest way to get to Skellig is to take the boat by Murphy Sea Cruise. It only takes 55 minutes from Portmagee. The boat leaves Portmagee at 10:30 a.m. - better ring before to make sure the boat will go. It only goes when the sea is calm enough (which still isn't really calm! Actually it can get quite rough, that's why the...
