Dip your toe into Ireland

Ireland is a place most people want to experience in their lives. Some have family they wish to trace or friends who have convinced them to go, others want to see the beautiful scenery or get a sense of the history. More still want to go for the pubs, castles, or the friendly Irish welcome. This tour combines all of these things into six days exploring the southern part of the country. This gives you a taste of each aspect of the country without the burden on the wallet or vacation time that a longer tour would be. Be warned that most people who take this tour are already planning their return visit before they even even get home.

6 Day Ireland Experience Itinerary

Day 1 : Arrive Dublin

Arrive at Dublin Airport and make your way to your hotel. We will request an early check in for you but if there is no room available, you can drop your bags and set about exploring the city for a few hours. Dublin may not be the biggest city but that can work to your advantage as there is so much to do in a small area. Walk around the city or use the open top bus tour to make your way around. This hop-on hop-off tour allows you to see all of the main sights in the city in your own time including Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery, Glasnevin Cemetery, Phoenix Park, Kilmainham Gaol and much more.

Overnight in Camden Court Hotel

Day 2 : Glendalough & Dunbrody Famine Ship

This morning leave Dublin to see the delightful scenery of the Wicklow Mountains on the way to Glendalough. Learn about St. Kevin’s 6th century monastery in the Glendalough and walk through the site to see its round tower, church ruins and Celtic crosses. Continue your drive south to New Ross where a walk through the reconstructed 19th century Dunbrody Famine Ship demonstrates the harsh conditions that emigrants endured. Drive to your hotel in Waterford and, after dinner, take a walking tour around the narrow streets of the historic city.

Overnight in 4* B&B

Day 3: Cork City and Killarney

Travel along the south coast to Cobh, the last port of call of the Titanic. Titanic Experience Cobh is located in the original White Star Line Ticket Office in the centre of Cobh town (formally known as Queenstown) the departure point for the final 123 passengers who boarded the Titanic. Cobh is also the point from which millions emigrated toward a brighter future during and after the famine. At Blarney Stone & Castle climb the ramparts to gain the “Gift of Eloquence.” You may visit the Blarney Woollen Mill, which offers excellent Irish-made products. Continue on to Killarney where you will stay tonight.
