Trip Summary
2 nights in Dublin

With over 1000 years of history Dublin has experienced many changes, particularly in the last decade. European Union membership and increased prosperity have transformed Dublin into a multicultural city with a thriving economy, ranking it among the top tourist destinations in Europe. An hour walk from the top of Grafton Street, across the Liffey, up O'Connell Street, and farther into north Dublin is a walk through time and, also a glimpse of some of the pieces that must eventually fit together.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Trinity College and the Book of Kells, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin Castle, the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery, Temple Bar, St. Stephen's Green and the National Museums and so much more!


2 nights in Waterford

Waterford, located on the River Suir, is the oldest city in the Republic of Ireland and one of the country`s largest population centers. The storied history of Waterford started in 914 CE, making Waterford older than most European capitals! Not only can people learn a lot about history walking down these winding, hilly streets, they can take a special sovenir home: authentic Waterford crystal!


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Reginald`s Tower, Bishop`s Palace, House of Waterford Crystal, Clock Tower on the Quays, Beach Tower, Double Tower, Treasures of Waterford Museums, Mount Congreve, and so much more!


1 nights in County Kerry

Offering softly rolling green fields, long, sweeping seascapes, and vibrant little towns, the `Kingdom` has a maze of blissfully quiet country lanes each of which has a story to tell - Around every corner, a piece of history unfolds amidst the most beautiful of scenery. There are tiny fishing villages, early Christian ruins, and Ireland`s highest mountain. Located in the extreme southwest of Ireland, offers outstanding and magnificent sceneries such as the Ring of Kerry and a very well-preserved eighteenth-century century port in Tralee, its capital town.

MUST SEE`S IN COUNTY KERRY: Ring of Kerry, Muckross House and Gardens, the Blasket Centre, Kerry Bog Village Museum, Killarney National Park, the Skellig Islands, and Ardfert Cathedral.


2 nights in County Clare

Clare is the County of seascapes and landscapes, offering two of Ireland`s natural attractions: The Burren, with its great mystery and beauty due to its geology, flora, caves, archaeology and history and the dramatic stretch of coastline, including the spectacular Cliffs of Moher and quaint seaside towns such as Lahinch and Kilkee. Also worth visiting are charming villages like Killaloe, a lovely village at the foot of the Slieve Bernagh Hills, and home to a picturesque inland marina. Killaloe Cathedral dates from the 13th century. And for Irish music, be sure to visit town of Doolin - famed for its tradition of Irish music: It features pubs where they host musicians of high standard playing frequently both during the day and the evening. This is also an excellent place for those fascinated by the country`s ancient history, as it`s littered with historic and prehistoric sites, from the Poulnabrone Dolmen to Bunratty Castle.

MUST SEE`S IN COUNTY CLARE: Cliffs of Moher, the Aillwee Cave, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, Craggaunowen, Clare Archaeology Centre - Dysert O'Dea Castle, and Clare Heritage and Genealogical Centre.


2 nights in Galway

Galway City known as the `city of the tribes` is a thriving, bohemian, cultural city on the western coast of Ireland. It is a popular seaside destination with beautiful beaches and long winding promenade and has a buzzing cosmopolitan city centre. The city is a joy to explore with its labyrinthine cobbled streets, colorful shop facades and busy café/ bar culture. The city is renowned for its thriving Irish Theatre, arts, music and culture scene and Galway plays host to a number of internationally renowned festivals throughout the year. Eyre Square is Galway`s best known sight. Nearby are Kylemore Abbey, Ashford Castle, the Aran Islands and Connemara National Park.
