Explore some of Dublin’s fine Museums and Galleries today. Visit Dublinia at Christchurch, which brings the turbulent History of medieval Dublin vividly to life. You should also stop by the 16th Century Trinity College, founded by Elizabeth 1, and now home to the famous illuminated manuscript, the Book of Kells. Don’t forget about the Guinness Storehouse for a tasting of this world famous ‘black stuff” before you return to your hotel. Overnight: Dublin area

Leave Dublin this morning and travel across the rich midland pastures. Visit Belvedere House, Gardens and Park, the magnificent early 18th century stately home of Robert Rochfort, Earl of Belvedere. Arrive into Galway, which has long traded with Spain and the Spanish influences in the city are many. Continue to the Connemara region, famous for the savage beauty of its lake and mountain scenery and on to Clifden where you shall be staying in the wonderful Abbeyglen Castle which has a panoramic view of Clifden. Overnight: Galway area.

Visit Connemara National Park, where Connemara ponies and Irish red deer roam freely through 5,000 acres of scenic mountains, bogs and grassland.

Take a scenic drive through Leenane where you have an option to board the Sea Cruise through Killary Fjord. Another night will be spent in Abbeyglen Castle. Overnight: Galway area.

Leave Clifden and travel south into Clare, known as the “land of castles”. Travel on through the strange lunar landscape of the Burren region or visit the Cliffs of Moher, a spectacular 5-mile long cliff, which rises almost 200m above sea level. Stop in the heritage town of Kilrush, before boarding a ferry to Tarbert (ferry not included) in north County Kerry. Travel on to the hotel for your overnight stay. Overnight: Kerry area.
