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!



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.

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 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.
