On a visit to Kerry from New York, we took a Kerry Aqua Terra tour last October. It was brilliant from start to finish. The group was small, so the tour felt really personalized – we learned a lot of information, and had any questions answered expertly. Visiting the islands off the coast was so enjoyable and stunning, and we had no idea they were so steeped in history. The scenery around the coast of Kerry is mesmerizing. We highly recommend this tour if you want a intimate and informative experience, with really knowledgeable and entertaining tour guides. We will definitely do another tour when back in that part of Ireland!
