Itinerary

2018 Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Regional departure by coach then to Holyhead for the ferry to Ireland, and to our overnight hotel in Kilkenny or Arklow.

    Meals - Dinner

  • Day 2 - Kilkenny & Killarney

    Enjoy a morning at leisure exploring the town of Kilkenny located on the banks of the River Nore. Kilkenny was once the medieval capital of Ireland and is now home to some interesting castle ruins and landmarks. After free time to explore we head into Co. Tipperary and to the town of Cashel where we pause for lunch. From here we continue through Co. Cork and into Kerry to the famous town of Killarney. Here there will be the opportunity to join an optional jaunting car ride as the Tangney family welcome you on board their pony and trap rides. This family business has been in operation for over 220 years! Later this afternoon we continue to the market town of Tralee, and on to our hotel where we stay for two nights.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 3 - Dingle Peninsula

    Tralee is the gateway to the Dingle Peninsula which we explore today on our included excursion. We begin with a scenic drive around the peninsula. The area has provided a backdrop to many films, including the 70s film ‘Ryan’s Daughter’. Each turn provides spectacular views of long, sandy beaches, breathtaking steep cliffs and hidden bays. The peninsula is dominated by the range of mountains that form its spine, running from the Slieve Mish to Mount Brandon, Ireland’s second highest peak. Around lunchtime, we arrive in Dingle where you will have free time to explore this quaint town.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 4 - Adare & the Cliffs of Moher

    We leave our hotel today and make our way north to the Galway area for an overnight stay. En route we pause at Adare, often described as Ireland’s prettiest village. With its thatched cottages, art and craft shops and its fashion boutiques, it’s easy to see why it has gained this reputation. From Adare we head to the spectacular Cliffs of Moher in County Clare (weather permitting). We include entrance to the excellent Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience. Be sure to take your camera as the views from the 700-feet high cliffs are simply breathtaking. We continue across County Clare and the rocky landscape of the legendary Burren to our hotel near Galway.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 5 - Galway & Dublin

    We start the day with a short visit to Galway, ‘City of Tribes’. Discover the beautiful beaches, long winding promenade, cobbled streets and colourful shop façades. We then head east to Dublin where our optional sightseeing tour will introduce you to this fascinating city. Our informative guide will show you the main sights such as the Trinity College, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, The National Art Gallery and the Four Courts. There will then be free time for you to explore all Dublin has to offer. Perhaps pay a visit to the Guinness Storehouse should you wish to pay homage to Dublin’s most famous drink (entrance not included). Sit back, relax and enjoy a panoramic view of Dublin from its glassed Gravity Bar. We stay overnight in the Dublin/County Meath area.
