Another tour that Lisa and I did whilst in Ireland was the Ring of Kerry tour. We did this tour and the Blarney tour with a company called Paddy Wagon tours, they are a great company. The guides are really funny and they play Irish songs and get you to sing along (I loved the sing-a-longs, but Lisa didn't). The Ring of Kerry ...
