Tours from Bantry and Cobh
We also arrange private day tours for guests who are visiting Ireland by Cruise ship, docking in Bantry, Cobh or Ringaskiddy. From these ports we highly recommend the Beara Tour, as it shows the most amazing off the beaten path scenery, and this tour can be done within the limited time you’ll have during your time “on land”.

Multi-day Tours
Your preferred private day tours can be combined into a multiday tour. As these tours are in the Southwest of Ireland, they can all start from one location, for example Killarney, Kenmare or Sneem. Just check in to your accommodation and enjoy your multiday-tour from there. No hassle with packing bags and moving hotels.
