Trip Details

From the Irish people’s sparkling wit and inviting pub culture to the Isle’s incredible emerald landscapes, this small country has much to offer. Explore beautiful Ireland and see prominent cities and natural wonders, from the excitement of Dublin to the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher along the Atlantic.

We’ll explore the scenic southwest, often considered to have some of the most picturesque views in all of Ireland, tour the rugged Ring of Kerry, delight in the history of Killarney, Blarney Castle, Cashel, Cobh, and County Kildare, home of the Irish National Stud Farm and Museum. Highlights of this touring itinerary include visiting a medieval monastery, a jaunting car ride, a day at Naas Racecourse, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Trinity College in Dublin to see the Book of Kells.

Ireland brings back the joy of traveling with spectacular Irish landscapes, historical forts and palaces, famous coastlines, and ancient accounts that mingle myth and legend. Whether you fancy the ragged landscapes and lush pastures of the Midlands or meeting new friends at a lively Irish pub, the Celtic spirits will be with you.
