Skip the bus tours and hire a cab for the day. The cabbies are all so knowledgeable and accommodating. They will also tell you the off peak times to visit sites like Mucross house, the Kerry woolen mills and other sites.

Drive the Ring of Kerry yourself and do the Skellig Ring. Much better than a coach tour. The roads a very narrow but OK if you are a confident driver. The scenery is out of this world. We also did the Beara Peninsula which is just as beautiful in a different way. The roads here are extremely narrow so don't attempt it if you are not comfortable reversing to allow oncoming traffic to pass!! My husband had a ball!!

Head to Ross Castle and take a tour on one of the boats. We went on one of the larger more 'touristy' boats but it looked like the smaller boats were just as good.

For a leisurely afternoon walk, drive to the small parking lot near Muckross Abbey. Lovely, quiet spot to explore the well preserved abbey and graveyard. From there you can walk a forested trail 1.4 kms to Muckross House and gardens.
