Itinerary

6 day itinerary

  • Day 1

    Regional departure by coach, then to Holyhead for the ferry to Ireland. Continue to our hotel in the Galway area for two nights.

    Meals - Dinner

  • Day 2 - Cliffs of Moher & Aran Islands

    An early start, as we head out for a morning boat ride (weather permitting) to view the world-famous Cliffs of Moher. Towering over the rugged West Clare coast, the cliffs here are almost entirely vertical, with abrupt cliff edges. You can just hear the booming of the waves below, and on a clear day the views are tremendous.

    We continue on to visit the Aran Islands. This trio of cultural and historical islands represent the best of Ireland's rugged west - the last lands before you reach America.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 3 - Galway; Westport House; Achill Island

    We spend a short time in Galway this morning. Galway is home to a host of fascinating buildings and architectural delights, including the Cathedral, St Nicholas' Church and the quaint streets of the Latin Quarter.

    We then head to the charming market town of Westport, where we visit Westport House. One of the few remaining privately-owned historic houses in Ireland, the family lineage of the house dates back to the trail-blazing pirate queen and chieftain, Grace O'Malley.

    In the afternoon, we continue around Clew Bay to visit picturesque Achill Island before contining to our hotel in Belmullet in County Mayo for two nights.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 4 - Wild Atlantic Way & Downpatrick Head

    Included excursion, as we take in a dramatic section of the Wild Atlantic Way. A hidden gem of this corner of Ireland, Erris is a region of plunging cliffs and awe-inspiring scenery.

    The Wild Atlantic Way is one of the longest defined coastal routes in the world and is renowned for its spectacular coastline, stunning countryside and enchanting villages.

    During the day, we'll call at mighty Downpatrick Head, known for its associations with St. Patrick and as a World War II lookout post, as well as the unique, cavernous blowhole that during stormy days forces seawater to through the ground making an exciting natural spectacle.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

    Today we make our way back to Dublin. Here there will be some free time to explore Ireland's vibrant capital city.

    Why not join our optional sightseeing tour that will show you all the main sights including Trinity College, St. Patrick's Cathedral, the National Art Gallery plus many more!
