A passionate tour of Ireland with a slice of Britain on the side

The Celts were some of the earliest inhabitants of Britain and Ireland and are well known for their passionate and vibrant culture. Despite their reputation as fierce warriors they couldn't resist a series of invasions that forced them west. We'll follow that trail in reverse on this fabulous tour of Ireland and Britain. As we make our way from Belfast to London, we take in the very best that the Celtic nations have to offer, including gorgeous Galway, bustling Dublin, vibrant Cardiff and so much more in between.

 

Itinerary

Day 1: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Arrive and fiddley-diddley-dee in the land of four leafed clovers and mythical pots of gold. Wander through the city and spot the street art, murals and cool venues that the locals don't want you to know about. Then hit up the Titanic Museum or hop on an optional Black Cab tour for local tales and insider tips. Tonight: gobble down some local grub with the group before knocking back some pints. You'll fit right in.

Day 2: Belfast to Galway, Republic of Ireland
Get some perspective with a game of Giant's hopscotch at Causeway before we roll into Derry for some more medieval vibes. Tonight: bohemian Galway for some much deserved free time and a meal of your choosing.

Day 3: Galway
Sail out on an optional trip to the Aran Islands or stick around town to roam free. Check out Wolfe Tones Bridge and the Spanish Arch. Make sure you visit the main street where local shops and cool cafés make light of the city's sleepy reputation.

Day 4: Galway to Killarney
This morning is all #nofilter. First through Burren National Park, then past the Spielberg-worthy backdrop at the Cliffs of Moher. Later, gear up for a #throwback tour of Killarney by means of an optional jaunting horse and cart. Tonight is all you.

Day 5: Killarney to Dublin
First up, Blarney Castle and a chance to get the gift of the gab by kissing a slab of limestone. Next: Cashel for cute shops and the holiest site in Ireland. Get ready for the main event this afternoon as we roll into Dublin for a night of living like a local.

Day 6: Dublin
Get your bearings for this afternoon's free time on a walking tour. Then, take in the view of the city from the Guinness Skybar after touring the dark brew distillery. Just don't say you can't taste the difference. Keep the buzz going, the rest of the day is yours for the taking.

Day 7: Dublin to North Wales, Wales
Brave the waters as we ferry over to Wales this morning. Make a pit stop for a selfie at the place with the longest name in Europe: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Work on your pronunciation for a bit then explore the myth-steeped countryside. The afternoon is all yours. Taste note: hunt down a Welsh rarebit for dinner.

Day 8: North Wales to Cardiff
Off to find out why English students flock to study in Cardiff. Psst… it's got something to do with the many bands that pass through here. Tonight: get teary at a local restaurant aka our farewell dinner. #sadface

Day 9: Cardiff to London, England
The last hurrah. On to Bath and then Stonehenge to assess your aura. London town awaits. Why not stick around and check out the big city?
