Trip Summary
2 nights in Galway

Galway City, the largest city in County Galway, is known as the `city of the tribes` and 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 center. 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 and the imposing Galway Cathedral are but two of Galway`s best-known sights. Further afield from Galway City, you will find Kylemore Abbey, Ashford Castle, the Aran Islands and Connemara National Park.

Explore the region across Galway Bay, Lynch Castle, Galway City Museum, the National Aquarium, Salthill beach, Spanish Arch, festivals like the annual Galway Arts Festival and much more!



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.

Visit 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 Kilkenny

Irelands' smallest city both by area and population, Kilkenny is a beautiful medieval city with narrow streets, well-preserved churches, a great castle on a hilltop, and many old buildings. Kilkenny's city center can also brag about its nightlife, live music, and stand-up comedy scenes. One of Ireland's' largest arts festivals is based here, as are a number of craft fairs and comedy festivals.

Visit The Tholsel, Kilkenny Castle, Butler Gallery, Rothe House, St Canice's Cathedral, The Black Abbey, Black Freren Gate, and so much more!



2 nights in Killarney

Killarney (Cill Airne in Irish) is the gateway to the Ring of Kerry and is one of best places in Ireland to explore the outdoors. The attractive town is outshone by the Killarney National Park and the surrounding countryside with its mountains, lakes, woods and overall beauty. Killarney town has charming architecture and style reminiscent of the late nineteenth century and offers the fine restaurants, gift shops and traditional pubs. About 6 miles west is the Gap of Dunloe with steep sides and deep glacial lakes, it offers spectacular scenery. The Ring of Kerry meanders around the Iveragh Peninsula with sensational views, especially at Caherdanial where you will find Ireland's only beach pub. At regular intervals you will come across restaurants, cafes and gift shops majoring in Irish crafts. Another landmark is the Ross Castle, a square medieval tower which was built by the O'Donoghues in the 15th century, situated on the shores of Lough Lein. Muckross House and Gardens are also worth a visit.

Visit the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House and Gardens, Three Lakes of Killarney - Lough Léin, Muckross Lake, Upper Lake, Ross Castle on Lough Lein, Killarney National Park, Gap of Dunloe, Ladies View, Torc Waterfall, Town of Killarney and much more!




1 nights in Limerick

Limerick is the third-largest city in the Republic of Ireland. The history of beautiful Limerick, on the Shannon River, goes back over a millennium. The Vikings and the Old English inhabited a walled city to the north of the current city center, while the native Irish lived to the south across the Abbey River, a tributary of the Shannon. The end of the Williamite Wars were fought in Limerick, and you can learn more about the war`s impacts at the Limerick City Museum and the 13th-century King John's Castle. It wasn't until the eighteenth century when Edmund Sexton Pery designed the current city center, a living showcase of Georgian architecture. Limerick is a resurgent city ready to welcome tourists with a smile.

Visit King John's Castle, St. Mary's Cathedral, The Hunt Museum, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Limerick City Museum, Frank McCourt Museum, The Treaty Stone, Newtown Pery, King`s Island, Limerick Milk Market, People`s Park and so much more!

Package Map Picture
Ireland

Ireland, `the Emerald Isle`, offers some of the most beautiful landscapes and views in the entire world, from castles in ruins in verdant valleys to rocky cliffsides overlooking the Atlantic. It is a country that is fiercely proud of its native language and culture, and venturing outside the major cities, you will be able to view a more rural experience. This is most popularly achieved by driving the 111-mile Ring of Kerry in the western part of the country, or visiting the charming Gaeltacht where Irish is only spoken. But definitely do not discount the cities, home to charm, history, and great landmarks, such as the cosmpolitan capital of Dublin, and large cities such as Limerick and Cork.
