MAYBE YOU HAVE HEARD OF STAR WARS? Well, now is your chance to experience up close the setting of The Force Awakens on our unique tour of the Ring of Kerry and Valentia Island.
Our unique tour experience will take you off the beaten track to unearth the real Ring of Kerry and explore the spectacular setting of Valentia Island. We will visit the Skellig Experience Centre on the mainland (this tour does not include a boat tour to the Skellig Islands), where you can discover this island’s unique magical setting on the very edge of the World and learn about the Monks that lived on the largest of the Skellig Islands from the 6th-12th Century. Afterwards, experience the story of how some of Hollywood’s biggest stars showed up in this tiny coastal setting. See where Mark Hamill learned how to pull a pint and even better, you to can become a Guinness Jedi Master as we use the Force to teach you how to pull your own perfect pint.
After a well-earned bite to eat, we jump back onto the Ring of Kerry, slowly making our way to Killarney, stopping off at many spectacular viewing points to learn about how each location has shaped our history and the opportunity to take that one picture that will ensure an everlasting memory.
