After some free time here we continue to the cosmopolitan city of Galway with its rich maritime history. Following this visit we continue our journey to Ennistymon and on to the Falls Hotel, our base for the next 2 nights.
Wednesday: Following breakfast we make the short journey to visit the Cliffs of Moher, standing 702 feet at their highest point and stretch for 5 miles along the Atlantic coast of County Clare and offer a magical vista. After spending some time here we continue to Lisdoonvarna, a beautiful and historic spa town.
Thursday: We leave Ennistymon and make our way to Ennis, a picturesque and historic market town and capital of Co. Clare. After spending some free time here, we head for Limerick, a bustling modern city with a rich medieval past which resounds around its ancient streets, where we have time to explore before continuing our journey to Killarney for our 3-night stay.
Friday: Following breakfast this morning our jaunting cars will arrive at the hotel to take us to Lough Leane where we enjoy a relaxing boat cruise to Ross Castle. Following this visit there will be a local coach waiting to return us to the hotel. The afternoon is at leisure to explore the lovely resort of Killarney with its many shops, bars and cafes.
Saturday: Today we enjoy a coach tour of The Ring of Kerry, probably the best-known scenic drive in Ireland, a round trip with stunning vistas throughout.
Sunday: After breakfast we leave Killarney and make our way to Cork City. Like Venice, the city is built upon water and the city centre is built on an island in the River Lee. Here you’ll find unique shopping, numerous pedestrian walk-ways & sidewalks and at every corner you’ll come across another panoramic view. Following our free time here we continue the journey to Stillorgan for our last overnight stay.
