TR Tours - Ireland Tour 2016
TR Tours is organising, with its travel partner Travel Destination, a tour to Ireland in June 2016. The tour will be lead by Mick and Linda Forey. Road books will be provided as this is a self guided tour not a convoy: travel in your own time and at your own pace, stop when you wish. The 5 star Hotel Dunloe, Killarney will be our home for this great touring holiday.
County Kerry boasts some of Ireland's most dramatic scenery. The combinations of rugged coastlines, imposing mountains and picturesque villages make this area perfect for exploring in your TR. Some of the best driving routes in Ireland will be on your doorstep with the Wild Atlantic Way leading you around the Dingle Peninsula, the Beara Way and the famous Ring of Kerry.
