Answer









Thank you Tom for choosing to visit Ireland.



For Sept. 18th.,  at this time there are seats available on the Paddy-waggon tour from Dublin to Dingle where four tickets cost a total of €268 including booking fee. The itinerary is shown below. It would be well to check this figure directly from USA as sometimes rates differ depending on location of the person booking.

The fare includes the return to Dublin but I think it unlikely they would credit any part of it as a passenger seeking a seat on the return trip only would be difficult to find.


There is an Option by railway costing a total of €100 for the four passengers. (in fact there is a ten per cent discount at present and the cost is a total of €90)

I do not yet have an itinerary for Dingle Galway but will check it later today


Paddy-waggon Itinerary (this is copied from the website)

We enjoy a scenic drive along some parts of the famous Dingle Peninsula. We stop for photos en route with amazing views of Dingle Bay, Skellig rocks, Inch beach, and the Ring of Kerry. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the golden sands and one of Ireland's finest strands on our Western shores. This ideal setting is perfect for panoramic photographs admits the Wild Atlantic Way.

Inch Beach

Inch Beach is one of the most famous beaches in Ireland, and stretches for 3 miles facing the Atlantic ocean and is renowned as a surfing and fishing location. Its golden sands became well known on the big screen as it has featured in many movies, most notably Ryan's Daughter and Playboy of Western World which was entirely filmed along its shoreline.

Wild Atlantic Way

The portion of the Wild Atlantic Way which we visit on this trip goes from Inch beach to Annascaul, and from Camp down to Tralle and Tralle Bay. We enjoy views of Mount Brandon, Ireland second highest mountain and named after our greatest navigator St. Brandon the Voyager, considered one of the people who may have discovered America. This area is also known worldwide for its annual Rose of Tralle contest which each year endeavors to choose the most "Irish" girl. We make our way back to Dublin with a leisurely stop for refreshments in the midlands along the way.


















Adare

En-route to Kerry we will enjoy a stop at one of Ireland's most picturesque villages - Adare with its fabulous thatched cottages which line part of the village's broad main street , renowned for being regularly voted Ireland's tidiest town. It is known for its beautiful stone buildings, medieval monasteries and ruins.

Killarney National Park

One of the most beautiful and admired national parks in the world, Killarney national park was the first of its kind established in Ireland in 1932. With magnificent views of the Lakes of Killarney and Black Valley from our stops at Aghadoe and Torc Waterfall the park gives you an opportunity to enjoy a walk in this amazing landscape and spend time strolling along the lakes.

Killarney

Regularly voted the most beautiful town in Ireland, Killarney is the gateway to both Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. Nestled in the valley beneath Ireland's highest mountain range, and surrounded by lakes Killarney boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in Ireland. Lined with lovely shops, pubs and traditional arts and crafts stores, this true gem is a must see for every traveler who visits our motherland.

Torc Waterfall

Torc Waterfall is a 18m high waterfall which cascades through the wooded Friers Glenn. We take a stop at this magnificent natural site of beauty. Enjoy a short walk , and maybe even see the red deer which are well known inhabitants of the Killarney national park . The waterfall has a public hiking path that stretches to the top of Torc Mountain.

Muckross House and gardens

Located on Muckross Peninsula between 2 lakes of Killarney, Muckross House is a beautiful example of 19th century architecture. Built in 1843. for Henry Herbert, the house has been home to some of Ireland's most prominent figures such as the Guinness family. The house was built in Tudor style, and Queen Victoria herself was welcomed by the Herbert family in 1861.. Walk through the gardens and enjoy the beautiful landscape that has been kept for hundreds of years.

Killorglin

Pass through Killorglin, the home of the ancient Celtic festival Puck Fair. Dating back to 1613., this is one of the oldest festivals in the world where a goat is crowned king of the village and placed on a pedestal for 3 day in August each year. People come from far and wide to pay homage to the king goat and enjoy the festivities of street stalls, music, and much more. This section of the tour takes you along part of the famous "Ring of Kerry" driving route.

The journey from Dingle to Galway by Bus Éireann bus will require two changes, at Tralee and Cork.


It requires an early morning start and arrives in Galway at 18.45. (an all-day undertaking)
The overall cost per person is approximately €40 per person          https://national.buseireann.ie/?originStop=25502&destinationstop=&ticketType=2&departdate=21-sep-2016&departtime=1200&returndate=22-sep-2016&returntime=1200&adult=1&child=0&student=0&family=0

That rate will probably sell out
