Itinerary


Day

1

Arrival

Saturday

Arrive in Dublin airport where you are met and assisted to the awaiting car by your friendly Irish driver and guide.  Transfer direct to your pre-booked hotel.

THE CHARM OF DUBLIN
Intimate as a village, sophisticated as a metropolis and friendly as a pub, the capital of Ireland is a centre of infinite interest and variety. Monuments in literature and stone mark the history, writers, poets and people of Dublin. Mediaeval, Georgian and modern architecture provide a backdrop to a friendly, bustling port which can boast literary giants such as Shaw, Joyce, Yeats, Beckett and O’Casey as native sons. Spawned by the need to ford the River Liffey, fortified by the Danes, developed by the Normans, adorned with fine buildings by the Anglo—Irish, the city has grown in stature and elegance over the centuries.

Overnight - Radisson Blu Royal, Dublin


Day

Dublin

Sunday

A hearty Irish breakfast in your hotel and then you are free to explore Dublin’s ‘Fair City’ on your own.  A Dublin Bus Hop on / Hop off ticket is an easy way to do this.  

Fine museums and galleries chronicle the long and colorful heritage of this city. Fashion shops and boutiques rival the best in Europe. The theatres and concert halls attract prestigious national and international artists, while the pubs buzz with traditional entertainment, cabaret, jazz sessions and, of course, friendly and exuberant Dubliners.

Ireland's Ancient East

Monday

Leaving Dublin, you can visit the Irish National Stud and Horse Museum in Kildare, or you can stop off in Glendalough for stunning views of the Irish countryside before making your way to Kilkenny.

Kilkenny’s mediaeval heritage gives this beautiful city, dominated by the 17th century former Butler Castle, a unique atmosphere. Conducted walking tours will take you to many finely preserved buildings and Kilkenny Design Workshops. The 12th century Cistercian Abbey at Jerpoint, near Thomastown is a must for visitors as is the picturesque village of Inistioge and the beautiful Nore valley.

Overnight – Mount Juliet Hunters Yard, Kilkenny


Day

Cork

Tuesday

Today you will travel west to the Kingdom of Kerry. A great route with beautiful scenery is along the south coast via Yougahl, Midleton, Cork City and the village of Blarney where you can gain the ‘gift of eloquence. The coastal and Blackwater Valley routes from Cork westward offers some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery in Europe. Imposing green—clad hills and mountains in haphazard perfection flank the sheltered harbours and villages. Along the route are colourful villages with lyrical names like Ballydehob, Skibbereen and Glengarriff.

Overnight - The Dunloe Hotel, Killarney


Day

The Ring of Kerry

Wednesday

A full day to explore the magnificent scenery of Kerry including the Lakes of Killarney, the Ring of Kerry, or Dingle. 

The Ring of Kerry, a 160 km route around the Iveragh Peninsula, is one the great scenic drives. This route, an amazing mixture of rugged mountains, winding valleys and dramatic seascapes, begins and ends in Killarney. Famed in song and story, the Lakes of Killarney live up to expectations.

Overnight - The Dunloe Hotel, Killarney

Or, if you want to take a more direct route, head toward Tarbert and take the ferry across the mouth of the River Shannon and then follow the winding coastal roads through the Burren to the Cliffs.

Overnight – Dromoland Castle, Clare


Day
