South-west itinerary/education info help please

Jump to last reply

Need some help, since my Ireland knowledge is limited to 2 trips:

Friends are going to south-west area of Ireland for the first time and the dilemma is tours vs driving. I love the freedom of exploring/driving freedom and have recommended they drive and find a few educational options along the way.

From my limited experience, I could say:
- Ring of Kerry: Staigue Fort (film) & Skellig Experience Center
- Dingle: Slea Head Drive: not sure. This drive was a highlight of my trip, but I don't remember any education center to give us context. Any suggestions? A quick Google search found a Dennis Ryan as a Dingle tour guide, or Irish Adventures company...
- Galway: I haven't been here, so any half day tour operator suggestions?
- Beara: Loved this drive, not sure what options there are for education/short tours

They are also in Dublin for a couple days, so I'm sure there are plenty of tours, guides, hop-on-hop-off buses options.

Other suggestions would be appreciated. They haven't set an itinerary yet.
Thanks so much.
