Day 1:


Today we jump right into action as we board our coach early this morning and make our way to the airport for our afternoon flight to Ireland. **Please keep the previous day, April 15, open in case our flight time changes, and we need a pre-night**   Map

Day 2:


Meals: Dinner

This morning we land at the Dublin Airport, where we will be met by our tour director and escorted to our motorcoach. Sit back, relax after a long flight, and enjoy the green rolling pastures as we travel westward through the Irish midlands to the picturesque town of Westport for a two-night stay. Following check-in and a well-earned rest, you will regroup with your fellow travelers and enjoy a welcome dinner in your hotel.

Day 3:


Meals: Breakfast

This morning we travel to Mulranny and cross the Michael Davitt Bridge to Achill, Ireland’s most extensive offshore island. Our tour will follow the coastline, and we will experience some breathtaking views on the island’s spectacular Atlantic Drive. We visit the deserted village at Slievemore, consisting of 80 - 100 stone cottages (booley homes) on the southern slopes of Slievemore Mountain. We will have lunch on Achill Island before returning to Westport. There will be time for you to explore this charming town with its colorful shopfronts and listen to traditional Irish music in one of the town’s many bustling pubs.

Day 4:


Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

This morning we depart Westport and travel by the foothills of Croagh Patrick (the holy mountain) to Louisburg. We will visit Glen Keen Farm, where we experience a sheep dog demonstration and get an insight into the daily working of a sheep farm. Before departing, you will also enjoy freshly brewed tea and scones straight from the oven. From here, our tour winds its way through the scenic Doolough Valley taking in a stretch of road known as the famine walk. Hundreds of people take part in the walk every year and follow in the footsteps of those who left their homes in search of food during the great famine. We will visit Kylemore Abbey, built in 1866 and from 1920 to 2008, home to the Benedictine Nuns. You will see the Abbey’s Victorian Walled Garden, entirely enclosed by a brick and limestone wall, and the beautiful Gothic Church built by Mitchell Henry in memory of his wife. From here, you will continue through Connemara to Galway City, where you will check into your hotel for a two-night stay. Dinner is included tonight at the hotel.

Day 5:


Meals: Breakfast

Today we take a break from the hustle and bustle of the mainland and travel to Rossaveal where we will board a ferry to Inishmore, the largest of the three Aran Islands and one of the highlights of the Wild Atlantic Way. The island is steeped in history and resembles an outdoor museum with over 50 Christian, pre-Christian and Celtic mythological heritage monuments. We will take a minibus tour of the island, including a stop at the world-renowned fortress of Dun Aonghasa, which stands over a dramatic 300-foot cliff that spans the entire western part of the island. You will have time to walk to Dun Aonghasa and enjoy the spectacular views before boarding the ferry for your return journey to Galway.

Day 6:


Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

This morning we depart Galway City and travel along the southern side of Galway Bay to Ballyvaughan. Our tour then winds its way through the lunar-type landscape of the Burren, from the Irish word ‘bhoireann’ meaning, ’a stony place’ or a ‘rocky place,’ which is a good description for this 350 sq. kilometers limestone plateau in North Clare. We continue to the majestic Cliffs of Moher, standing 214m (702 feet) at their highest point. Following some time to view the cliffs, we will travel to Lahinch, famous for its golf course, and from here to Killimer, where we will board the Shannon Ferry for a 25-minute sailing across the Shannon Estuary to Tarbert. Our journey then continues to Tralee, famous for the Rose of Tralee Festival, and from here to the town of Killarney, where we will check into your hotel for a three-night stay.

Day 7:


Meals: Breakfast

Today we will embark on one of Ireland’s most famous tours – The Ring of Kerry. Our first stop this morning will be the Kerry Bog Village, where we can visit little thatched cottages and see how people would have lived in Ireland many years ago. We will travel through the wild and rugged landscape of the Iveragh Peninsula, which has some breathtaking views of the Atlantic coastline. We will pass through the towns of Killorglin, Glenbeigh, Cahirciveen, and Waterville to the colorful village of Sneem. Our tour then winds its way through the Killarney National Park before returning to Killarney.

Day 8:

This morning we travel in traditional style on board an Irish Jaunting Car (horse-drawn carriage) to the Killarney National Park. Our journey winds through some of the oldest oak forests in Ireland and the famous Lakes of Killarney to Muckross House and Gardens. Here you will have a guided tour of this Victorian mansion built in 1843, one of Ireland’s leading stately homes. The remainder of the afternoon is free to enjoy a stroll through the charming town of Killarney with its many shops, pubs, and restaurants. Dinner is included this evening.

Day 9:


Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

This morning we depart Killarney and travel to Blarney, where you will visit Blarney Castle and Gardens. The castle was built in 1446, and you will have an opportunity to climb the spiral stairs to the top and kiss the famous Blarney Stone, said to bestow the gift of eloquence on all who dare. You can also visit the Castle Gardens and Rock Close as you make your way through the castle grounds. You will have some free time in the town of Blarney to visit local pubs for lunch and the Blarney Woollen Mills, which carries a wide range of sweaters, tweeds, china, and crystal. Our journey will then take us through the Irish midlands, where we will take in sites such as the Rock of Cashel, the seat of the Kings of Munster from 370 – 1101, and a famous ecclesiastical center. Enjoy the views of the beautiful Irish countryside as our motorcoach brings us to our hotel in Dublin for an overnight stay.
