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.

Recommended Stay:
At least 3 nights

Must See`s:
Kylemore Abbey, Ashford Castle, Connemara National Park, Aran Island, the Burren 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!




1 nights in Dingle Town

Dingle, the southwest point of Ireland, is a fishing port. The whole coast line has a mythical story attached to it. Each island is a symbol of a Giant's love for a normal woman - the story of Oish and Neve. It is home to Ireland's most famous bottlenose dolphin "Fungie". He has been swimming with the boats and tourists in Dingle harbor since 1984. Fungie is absolutely wild and free, yet remains here in Dingle. An important site is the Dingle's St. Mary's, a fine neogothic church.

Recommended Stay: At least 2 nights
Must See`s:
Slea Head Drive, Conor Pass, Dunbeg Fort, Reasc Monastic Site, Gallarus Oratory, Kilmalkedar Church, the Blasket Islands, Fungie the Dingle Dolphin, beautiful landscapes and so much more!



1 nights in Cork

Founded in the late 6th century by Saint Finbarr, Cork is Ireland's second largest city. A famous landmark is the Shandon Steeple of St. Ann's Church, which contains the Bells of Shandon. Other interesting places to visit are the English market in the center of the city, the University founded in 1845 and the very steep St Patrick's Hill, from the top of which are magnificent views over the entire metropolis. The River Lee flows through the city forming one of the world's largest natural harbours.

Recommended Stay:
At least 2 nights

Must See's:
The Shandon Bells, Saint Finbarr's Cathedral, the Cork City Gaol, The English Market and the nearby Blarney Castle and Cobh Harbor.




1 nights in Kilkenny

Ireland`s 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.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
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 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!
