Detailed Itinerary

Welcome to Dublin Airport, where after picking up your car you will travel into the city centre and check into your hotel. The remainder of the day can be spent exploring Dublin. Overnight: Dublin area.

Leave Dublin this morning and travel across the rich midland pastures. Before you cross the River Shannon, Ireland’s longest river, you can visit Clonmacnoise, a 6th century Christian site. Arrive into Galway, which has long traded with Spain and the Spanish influences are many in the city. Of note is Spanish Arch, a gateway in the old city walls and the Spanish Parade. Continue on from Galway to nearby Cong to your overnight hotel. Overnight: Cong area.

Today embark on a tour of the wild & rugged Connemara region, famous for the savage beauty of its lake and mountain scenery. Irish is still widely spoken here. Why not visit the magnificent Kylemore Abbey, a beautiful mansion in a lakeside setting against a mountainous backdrop? You can also visit Connemara National Park at Letterfrack, where the indigenous wild Connemara ponies roam freely through the rugged landscape. Overnight: Cong area.

Today you leave Ashford Castle & travel through Galway City and into County Clare. Travel through the strange lunar landscape of the Burren region or visit the Cliffs of Moher a spectacular 5-mile long cliff, which rises almost 700 feet above sea level. You can also visit the 15th century Bun ratty Castle and Folk Park. Stop at some of the many small towns and villages that Ireland is famous for. Overnight: Clare area.

Today travel south and pass through the medieval city of Limerick. Stop in the pretty village of Adare, who’s Heritage Centre allows you to experience the area’s unique history, spanning from 1233. Continue on to Kenmare, voted Ireland’s tidiest town. Overnight: Kerry area.

Today, why not relax and enjoy the hotel’s facilities or visit Kenmare with its many craft and antique shops. Alternatively tour the West Cork region travelling over the spectacular Healy Pass before arriving in Glen gariff where you can take a short boat trip to Garnish Island to see the “subtropical” gardens. Because of a unique Gulf Stream influence, you can see many plants you would normally expect to see in much warmer climates. Overnight: Kerry area.

Leave Kenmare and travel through the rich rolling pastures of Ireland’s Golden Vale region. Why not stop in Cork, Ireland’s second largest city or perhaps visit the world famous Blarney Castle and nearby Blarney Woollen Mills? Continue on to the medieval city of Kilkenny where you can stroll through the narrow streets and alleyways or visit Kilkenny Castle or some of the other heritage sites. Overnight: Kilkenny area.
