Start your journey in Dublin, where you will be welcomed with a traditional Irish evening and regional cuisine. The next day, choose between a local guide tour or a walking tour to explore the city's historic landmarks, followed by free time to discover Dublin's charms at your own pace. You can also opt for an optional tour to the Guinness Storehouse and dinner at a contemporary restaurant showcasing Irish cuisine.
Step back in time and begin the day in the medieval splendor of 12th-century Kilkenny on the River Nore, and in Waterford, embark on a leisurely paced walking tour of Ireland's oldest city. At Waterford, you can choose between touring the Waterford Crystal factory or visiting the Medieval Museum for a guided tour and a glass of wine in the 15th-century Mayor's Wine Vault.
The trip also takes you on a scenic drive along the Ring of Kerry, where you can take in the rugged coastline, pristine beaches, quaint villages, and majestic landscapes. At the Gap of Dunloe, shop for local artisan-made crafts. During your stay in Killarney, enjoy a traditional jaunting car ride* through Killarney National Park and board a boat* to sail through the breathtaking lakes accompanied by an expert boatman. The night is free for reminiscing about the day as you find your own authentic taste of Irish culture.
On day seven, visit the dramatic, 700-foot high Cliffs of Moher for cinematic views of the mighty Atlantic, followed by a panoramic city tour that showcases King John's Castle and the Treaty Stone in Limerick. You can also opt for an optional medieval banquet dinner hosted in a castle.
Pass through the Burren's windswept limestone landscape, known for its stark beauty and Neolithic tombs. See border collies in action during a traditional sheepdog demonstration. In Galway, take a brief tour that showcases "The City of Tribes," and return to Limerick to relax over dinner.
On the last two days of the trip, explore the old-world heritage of Ireland's whiskey territory. You don't have to be a connoisseur to appreciate the craftsmanship and traditions of Kilbeggan and Kingscourt.
