Day 1: Dublin, Republic of Ireland
Dial-up the craic as we meet in Dublin this afternoon. Get your bearings before we head out to capture some great snaps on a walking tour through town. Next up is a visit to the Guinness Storehouse where we drink in the history of Ireland (literally) and discover the magic that makes this black stuff so distinct. To finish off the day in style, we meet for a hearty dinner.
Day 2: Dublin to Killarney
First stop - stunning Cork. Think snug pubs, colourful houses and artisan coffee. Wander along the cosmopolitan streets and glistening waterways before we depart for the rolling green hills of Killarney. On the way, we make a pit stop at Blarney Castle. Feeling medieval? Kiss the Blarney Stone and legend has it that you'll be gifted with 'The Banter'. Tonight: we gobble down some local grub with the group before knocking back some pints.
Day 3: Killarney
With astounding 1000m high peaks towering over lakes, waterfalls and woodland, Killarney should keep you well occupied today. Later, gear up for a #throwback tour of Killarney by means of an optional jaunting horse and cart. Tonight is all you.
Day 4: Killarney to Galway
Not for the faint hearted, the breathtakingly vast Cliffs of Moher are a Spielberg worthy site today. Next up, we journey to Galway. A city steeped in history, it is described by many as the most 'Irish' place in Ireland. Absorb the lively atmosphere and goggle at the colourful streets and buskers on a walking tour through the city. Tonight, hang with the hipsters and feast on the local cuisine.
Day 5: Galway
Opt to venture back to the Ireland of old with a visit to the award winning heritage centre in Connemara, with its unique insight into the history of the West of Ireland. Eyre Square and the Spanish Arch are also worth checking out. Your choice.
Day 6: Galway to Belfast, Northern Ireland
Leaving behind the medieval town walls, we venture to the world-famous Giant's Causeway to play a giant's game of hopscotch before continuing to the ancient city of Derry, famed for its art and foodie scene. But don't get comfy, the capital of Northern Ireland is calling. Tune your GPS on a walking tour of the bustling and vibrant Belfast before we sit down to feast on dinner.
Day 7: Belfast
Today is up to you. Hit up the Cathedral Quarter for street art and murals coupled with cool venues the locals don't want you to know about.
Day 8: Belfast to Dublin
We sit down for one last Irish breakfast before heading back to Dublin where we say our goodbyes. Until next time!
