Itinerary
 

DAY 1: DUBLIN TO KILLARNEY

We leave the city and head south west into the lush green Irish countryside. Pass the River Liffey on the way to the imposing Rock of Cashel, once the seat of the Kings of Munster. Through the Golden Vale to Blarney Castle in the rebel county of Cork. Now's your chance to give the stone a big juicy smacker to get the legendary 'gift of the gab'. You will now realise your Guide has kissed the stone many, many times...Tonight is in the party town of Killarney.

 

DAY 2: KILLARNEY TO ENNIS

Today it's all about breathtaking scenery and adventure. We spend the day exploring the dramatic Dingle Peninsula and we take you to the edge of the ancient world...We stop at the stunning Coumeennole Beach then on through Tralee until we cross the mighty Shannon River to County Clare. We spend the night in Ennis where the pubs are filled with locals playing traditional Irish music.

 

DAY 3: ENNIS TO GALWAY

Hold on to your hats because today we'll visit the awesome Cliffs of Moher rising hundreds of feet over the Atlantic Ocean. Vertigo sufferers beware! After lunch we'll explore the weird and magical world of the Burren, Ireland's lunar landscape and home to fairies and leprechauns. Hear the Celtic legends surrounding the ancient burial tombs, or dolmens. Our stop for the night is Galway, Ireland's cultural capital and festival city.

 

DAY 4: INIS MÓR DAY (ARAN ISLANDS)

We spend a whole day on Inis Mór, the largest of the Aran Islands. Inis Mór has over 3,000 miles of stone walls! The locals here are fluent Irish (Gaelic) speakers and you'll be free to explore the island and get chatting to them over a pint. You can take a walk, a horse and cart or for the more energetic, explore the island by bike. You can't miss the awe-inspiring fortress of Dun Aonghasa, a 3,000 year old Iron Age ring fort perched on the edge of a 300 foot high cliff. After a tremendous day it's time to head back to the main land for a pint of Guinness or two in one of Galway's many buzzing pubs.

 

DAY 5: GALWAY TO DERRY

Today we make our way through the wild, rugged and rural Connemara. Mountains, glens and stories of the Irish Famine await before the stunning coast of Co. Sligo, the resting place of world famous poet W.B. Yeats. The medieval city of Derry is home for the night.

 

DAY 6: DERRY TO ANTRIM COAST

Derry will test your emotions as you are brought face to face with its troubled past on a walk through both past and present. It's the beautiful Antrim Coast past Dunluce Castle before we follow in the footsteps of Giants on the eighth natural wonder of the world – The Giant's Causeway. With its thousands of hexagonal columns you can make up your mind what caused it. A giant or geology? Then on to our overnight destination beside the stunning Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge where (weather permitting) you can sway Indiana Jones' style over the choppy Atlantic Ocean below.

 

DAY 7: ANTRIM COAST TO DUBLIN

This morning we head straight to Belfast for the chance to do a Black Cab tour of the city with a local at the wheel. You'll visit the Loyalist and Republican heartlands, see the famous political murals and learn about the 'Troubles'. Belfast has gone through some remarkable changes in the last few decades and is a highlight of many travellers trip to the North. You'll have free time to explore or visit Belfast's Titanic Experience to learn about the iconic doomed ship. We head south past the site of the Battle of the Boyne, a pivotal in Ireland's turbulent history before returning to Dublin.
