Trip Overview

Your driver guide is with you to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible while you sit back and relax and take in all that Ireland has to offer. They know the country like the back of their hand and will give you a true Irish experience!

Starting off in Dublin, you will have time to absorb the charm of our capital city, be it a pint of Guinness in the Storehouse, the Georgian Squares or charming cobbled streets of Temple Bar, there is plenty to offer all types of visitor! Head on then to Meath, The Megalithic Tombs of Newgrange are an absolute wonder where the summer and winter solstice takes place, close by is Trim Castle (where Braveheart was filmed). In the heart of Ireland there are two great distilleries making world renowned whiskey – Kilbeggan Distillery & Tullamore Dew Distillery.

 

Learn about the great skill in making these hand crafted drinks to become an Irish whiskey connoisseur! From Meath you make the short journey to Waterford where you can visit the iconic Waterford Crystal Factory or journey on to the Copper Coast. Your journey will continue on to Cork, The Rebel County. Cork is a bustling city on the south coast of Ireland where culture and heritage abounds. You can visit the the old gaol (jail & pronounced jail too) or the seaside town of Kinsale. Old Head Golf Course is there for golfer who dares!

The road continues to the charming Kerry, as known as The Kingdom. Dramatic scenery of the sea, mountains and lakes awaits you – so many photo opportunities of scenery, people and craic (Irish for fun). With two days here you have time to do the famous Ring of Kerry, a boat trip to the Skelligs weather permitting (location of the filming of the new Star Wars movie) or horse and trap trip through the Gap of Dunloe, so much to choose from!

 

Staying on the west coast you cross into Clare, a must see are the Cliffs of Moher (Harry Potter quidditch scenes were filmed here) and stop in to a traditional pub for an Irish music session and more banter!

You will then spend a night in Mayo.Croagh Patrick is located about 10 minutes from Westport and is named after our famous Saint Patrick (yes he gets a mountain and a day named after him!). If you dare, climb up to the top to see the small chapel (it only takes two hours!) and the beautiful Clew Bay which is overlooked by Croagh Patrick.

 

Finally, finish off your tour with another night in Dublin where you can relax in the capital before you start your journey home!
