5.0 ⭐     201 customer reviews

The heart and soul of Ireland is rooted in its history – ancient castles, cathedrals, hills and relics are home to the spirit of the country. This tour is all about discovering Ireland through its past and culture. Drive through counties including Galway, Cork and Waterford, stopping to visit attractions and take in the scenery as you go. Tour fortifications such as Blarney Castle and stop to explore sites including the gorgeous Cliffs of Moher, getting in touch with the beauty and culture of Ireland as you go.

Your tour begins from your hotel at 2:00 PM, offering a panoramic exploration of Dublin with a local guide. Witness the grandeur of its Georgian architecture, squares, the River Liffey, and historic O’Connell Street. Venture to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, an acclaimed, technologically advanced museum narrating the voyages of Irish emigrants worldwide and recounting the stories of their new lives abroad. After returning to your hotel, enjoy a welcome drink with your group, followed by the freedom to explore the city and dine at your own pace.

Embark on a journey to Glendalough, nestled in the scenic Wicklow Mountains. Explore the charming remnants of the ancient monastery, founded by St. Kevin in the sixth century, featuring stone churches, intricately carved Celtic crosses, and an iconic round tower. Continue your adventure to Wexford, where you'll visit the picturesque Johnstown Castle—a Gothic Revival castle surrounded by enchanting gardens designed by a prominent 19th-century architect. Conclude your day with a group dinner at the hotel.

Explore the House of Waterford Crystal, a preferred shopping partner of GIT, and witness skilled artisans craft exquisite creations during a factory tour. Continue your journey with a visit to the Jameson Distillery in Midleton, delving into the intriguing process of whiskey production and gaining insights into this cherished spirit. Conclude your day in Killarney, where you'll enjoy dinner at your hotel.

Embark on a jaunting car journey through Killarney National Park, reaching Ross Castle for panoramic views of Lough Leane and the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks. Explore the scenic wonders of the Ring of Kerry, a renowned Irish drive, and make a stop at Moriarty’s, GIT's favored shopping partner in the picturesque Gap of Dunloe. After lunch in the charming town of Kenmare, return to Killarney for the rest of the day at your own pace.

Leave Killarney and travel north to the Cliffs of Moher. Explore the cliffs, enjoying breathtaking views from 700 feet above the turbulent Atlantic waters. Reach the lively city of Galway, where you'll share a group dinner tonight.

Embark on a picturesque journey through the stunning Connemara region, characterized by its majestic mountains, serene lakes, and scenic boglands. Explore Kylemore Abbey, a splendid Victorian castle situated by the lakeside, originally constructed as a romantic gesture. Experience the charm of traditional farm life, witnessing skilled sheepdogs in action. Conclude the day with a free evening in Galway.

Travel to Shannon Bridge and embark on the Lir Cat Catamaran for a river journey to Clonmacnoise, the impressive ruins of a sixth-century monastery. Witness the magnificent remains, including the cathedral, nine churches, two round towers, and three high crosses, imagining the site as it appeared over a millennium ago when Vikings approached. Explore the area, envisioning its past as a thriving hub of learning that drew students from across Europe. Conclude the day in Dublin with a vibrant night of traditional Irish music, song, and dance, along with dinner at the Abbey Tavern.

You have the day at your leisure to discover Dublin on your own, utilizing your Hop-On, Hop-Off bus vouchers. Additionally, you have a voucher that grants you access to one of Dublin's top attractions, such as the Guinness Storehouse, Teeling Distillery, or the GPO Museum.
