Visiting historical Galway, gazing out from the Cliffs of Moher, puckering up for the Blarney stone and taste-testing Guinness come as standard but exploring the Jameson’s Distillery & seeing the UNESCO World Heritage site of the jaw-dropping Giant’s Causeway? Well, now we’re talking.

Trip highlights

  • Visit Blarney Castle – Your chance to kiss the Blarney Stone, get the ‘gift of the gab’, and to visit the medieval Irish castle.
  • See the iconic Cliffs of Moher – These rugged, photogenic cliffs have been the star of many films, including a Harry Potter one.
  • See Giant’s Causeway – Sure, rock formations may sound a bit dull on paper, but quirky natural wonder has to be seen to be believed.
  • Kilkenny Bike Tour – There’s no better way to discover the medieval capital of Ireland than taking in the sights by bike. When it comes to discovering the key landmarks of this fascinating city, there’s no other way to go than with a local expert. You’ll be amazed by Kilkenny Castle, St. Canice’s Cathedral & the Black Abbey, plus get some fresh country air at the same time! Additional cost applies
  • Sheep Dog Experience – Get off the beaten track and take a truly local experience with a visit to Glenshane Country Farm where you’ll learn how local communities support themselves through cross-generational trade. Here Jamese, who is a fourth-generation shepherd, will show you the ins & outs of his farm, from bouncing border collies to shepherds’ sheep shearing we get to experience true Ireland & give back at the same time. Additional cost applies
  • Guinness Storehouse – With a visit to the birthplace of Ireland’s national drink, you’ll soon be Guinness savvy. Learn about how this distinctive ale is made as the group takes a tour around the working brewery. Learn some pint-pulling techniques & top off the tour with pint of your own. Additional cost applies
Itinerary

Day 1: Dublin
Céad míle fáilte, meaning one hundred thousand welcomes, is what you get in this city packed with heritage, character, and more cute pubs than you could crawl in a week. Meet up with your Trip Manager this afternoon, then meet your new travel squad for dinner and then end the day with a lively night of festivities at the cobbled lanes of Temple Bar. Guinness, anyone?

Day 2: Dublin to Cork
That’s us done with Dublin… for now. But fear not Dub-lovers, we’ll get another taste of this fine place before our trip comes to an end.

Kilkenny
Break up your coach hangs with some bicycle time in a village sure to leave you wanting Irish in your blood. It’s a castle, cathedral, and mountains of medieval charm before we hit the road again for Cork.

Cork
Welcome to vibrant Cork! But not before the chance to sample some of Ireland’s famous whiskey at the Jameson’s Distillery in Midleton. Yum! Even when the skies are grey, Cork is covered in colour and good vibes. Stroll the River Lee or grab your first Guinness in the comfort of a pub, if you didn’t get your hands on one in Dublin.

Meals included: breakfast and dinner

Day 3: Cork to Galway
Cork
Hopefully you exhausted all of your cork puns yesterday, as today we are moving on, sightseeing our way to 2-nights in Galway.

Blarney
Irish folklore tells us there’s a chunk of limestone built into a castle that grants its kissers the gift of the gab. Pucker up kids, we’re paying her a visit!

Cliffs of Moher
Whether heights are your cup of Irish Breakfast or not, these impressive cliff faces are not to be missed!

Galway
From the moment we arrive in Galway, you’ll understand why 2 nights were needed here. Everything you’ve dreamed of Ireland to be is tucked into this small, atmospheric city. Step into a local pub and down Irish stew over live music and chats with locals. Outside will be just as lively, with buskers & colourful buildings lining the streets.

Included meals: breakfast

Day 4: Galway
Try your tongue at some Gaelic and carry on exploring gorgeous Galway. Or, if you hear the call of the wild, you can sign yourself up to a ferry ride to Aran Islands (summer departures only) where you can dance around with horses and take a bike ride around the picturesque farms, or head up to Dún Aonghasa (the ruins of a prehistoric fortress) – make sure you take photos, this area is not for the faint-hearted! Irish life, you are so sweet.

Meals included: breakfast and dinner

Day 5: Galway to Derry~Londonderry
Galway
Goodbye Galway, hello more Irish eye candy. Today we continue on towards to Londonderry.

Derry~Londonderry
Here in Derry~Londonderry, 17th-century walls stand at 8 metres high speaking of times gone by when this area was in battle. Times may have changed, but we’re still keen to soak up the history and learn a thing or two from our wise Local Guide.

Meals included: breakfast & dinner

Day 6: Derry~Londonderry to Belfast
Derry~Londonderry
Laters Derry~Londonderry, we’ve got a one-way ticket to Belfast and a whole lot more exploration to do.

Giant’s Causeway
UNESCO World Heritage site of the Giant’s Causeway – also known as those giant rock columns you’ve probably drooled over on Pinterest, needs to be seen to be believed. Get those hashtags ready, a snap with the group is essential on the mind-blowing natural formation.

Belfast
Next up – we’ll arrive in Belfast. Concluding the day will be a driving tour and a trip to the Titanic museum where the world’s most famous ship was built.

Meals included: breakfast

Day 7: Belfast to Dublin
Belfast
With one night left in Ireland and on tour, we’re on the fast track to Dublin where our Irish fairytale first began.

Dublin
A promise is a promise. Here we are back in the city that started our Ireland infatuations. Use this second stint to do your missed critical activities such as visiting the Guinness Storehouse where you can learn how to pull a pint the Irish way.

Meals included: breakfast

Day 8: Dublin
We leave Ireland today with leprechauns in our hearts and memories in our souls. Say goodbye at breakfast as it will be the last bite our crew has together.
