COVID 19       During this difficult time for us all, we have decided to continue providing Tour Services.    Our vehicles are always regularly serviced and cleaned but we are taking extra precautions during The Corona Virus outbreak.  All the vehicle door handles, seat belts, and other points of contact are being sanitized before, during, and after each tour.  Sanitized wipes will be provided for you in our vehicles.    We understand, and appreciate, that many people will have justifiable reservations about booking a tour and yet want to be able to tour with us on arrival in Ireland so we are making temporary changes to our booking arrangements.  We are only taking a deposit of €75 regardless of the size of the vehicle or the duration of the tour. For bookings made now that subsequently need to cancel because of Corona Virus, we will refund 95% of the deposit provided we receive a minimum of 72 hours notice of cancellation. We will make the refund of 95% to you, or at your discretion hold the full deposit against a future booking.

The Slea Head Drive is an extremely scenic route on the Wild Atlantic Way, that begins and ends and in Dingle town. Your guided tour of Slea Head Drive takes in a number of attractions and stunning views on the western end of the peninsula. It is one of the favorite drives of our chauffeurs.

 

On leaving Dingle you head on to Milltown Bridge, past the village of Ventry.  Dunbeg Fort is an ancient fortification on the route with sheer cliffs and great views.   There is an audiovisual presentation and a nice café in “The Stone House” at Dunbeg.

Slea Head itself is marked by a stone crucifixion scene where there are panoramic views to South Kerry and the Blasket Islands. Dun Chaoin where some of the movie, “Ryan's Daughter" was filmed has dramatic views and you can get very close to some of the rugged jagged terrain that closely resembles that of The Skelligs. The Drive continues north and east from Dún Chaoin through Ballyferriter. The route now heads eastward, passing close to a number of ancient monuments, such as the excavated early Christian site at Reasc, and Gallarus Oratory.

We guide you on to Feohanagh where a bridge is crossed and the route brings you to Brandon Creek. This inlet was the reputed starting point of the voyage of Saint Brendan to America, long before Columbus. The Drive now heads south and runs along the foot of Mount Brandon, the second-highest mountain in Ireland before rejoining the main road south to Dingle.

"I called Jim at Ireland West Tours looking specifically for a day touring around Galway to do photography. The minute I mentioned this to Jim, he started talking about light and times of day and I knew I was on to the right person! I trusted Jim with the places he recommended and he did not let me down!"

"Thanks to Tripadvisor we were so fortunate to find Ireland West Tours. Jim took my husband and I on a full day tour of the Burren. I would highly recommend this private tour. Well worth the cost!!"
