ARRIVE DUBLIN – SIGHTSEEING

Ireland’s ‘fair’ capital kick-starts your exhilarating encounter with the ‘Emerald Isle’. After check-in, don’t resist the youthful energy of Dublin and take to its streets in search of its characteristic craic. You’ll join your Local Specialist later for a sightseeing tour which includes views of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Trinity College. Tap into Dublin’s effervescent spirit and head to Temple Bar or Grafton Street on your own this evening. There’s a colourful pub on every corner, with happy locals and tourists spilling out on to the pavements. You could be one of them. Sláinte!

Day 3

The Ring of Kerry, Ireland

Killarney, Kerry, Ireland

KILLARNEY – RING OF KERRY SCENIC DRIVE

Ireland’s soul-stirring Ring of Kerry takes centre stage today as we embark on a scenic drive past its mountains, lakes and lush green countryside – unquestionably one of the most scenic routes in Ireland. We’ll see Daniel O’Connell’s Cahirciveen, the fishing village of Waterville, Moll’s Gap and the Black Valley, whose remote location led to the area becoming the last in Ireland to receive electricity. Later head to a Local Restaurant for dinner.

Accommodation: Killarney Hotel

Day 4

The Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

Limerick, Ireland

ADMIRE THE CLIFFS OF MOHER, THEN OFF TO LIMERICK

Today we journey to the magnificent Cliffs of Moher.

You’ll be enchanted by its irresistible landscapes, and may delight in occasional wildlife sightings.
