While in Co. Kerry

Tour guide books and brochures will introduce you to Kerry through the Killarney National Park, Moll’s Gap and Conor Pass on Dingle.


Two lesser promoted gems are


Bearra Peninsula, that I have dedicated a few recent blogs to due to its incredible beauty and abundance of stone circles and other ancient sites in very ambient surroundings.


and the other gem is the Prehistoric Museum near Ventry.


This vast archaeological collection exhibits over 500 authentic artifacts from the Stone, Bronze, and Celtic Iron Ages as well as Viking, Saxon and Roman objects.

Also features world's largest fossil Woolly Mammoth skull and tusks, a fossil dinosaur egg nest, and a complete fossil baby dinosaur skeleton.

The museum shop offers antiques, fossils, handmade jewelry, crafts and gifts.

Some of our “Veil Between Two Worlds” tours extend to visit Dingle and this museum.


Out tour will also visit there plus an evening concert by bard Robin Williamson at St. James Church, Dingle on Saturday May 19th.   For more information on package of guided tour , concert and accommodation please click here and ask
