Day by Day

Arrive at Dublin Airport and transfer to the first nights’ accommodation in Dublin City Hotel. Immerse yourself in all that Dublin has to offer – with its wide variety of museums and tours on offer, you will be spoilt for choice.

Today you will be transferred to pick up your car rental and begin your journey south towards Cork, Ireland’s second city. Along the way you can stop at the Rock of Cashel, a spectacular group of medieval buildings set on an outcrop of limestone and home of the High Kings of Ireland. Side trips on the way can be made to the medieval city of Kilkenny and the ancient monastery at Glendalough.

Start the morning by travelling to the harbour town of Cobh, which was the Titanic’s last port of call in 1912. Afterwards you will travel to the coastal town of Kinsale. Take a stroll around the town and treat yourself to some fish and chips (fries) at the famous Dinos restaurant. After a 15-minute drive, you will come to the Old Head of Kinsale, where you will have the opportunity to hike the Old Head of Kinsale Loop, an easy 1.5-hour (6km) walking route on a country road with spectacular views at every turn.

Afterwards, you will make your way over the mountainous terrain that separates the counties of Cork and Kerry and arrive in the town of Killarney, home to Ireland’s first national park with spectacular glistening lakes, beautiful nature, great food and a vibrant cultural atmosphere.

Today’s adventure takes you off the beaten track to unlock the real beauty of the world-famous Ring of Kerry. Considered one of the most beautiful destinations to explore in Ireland, and one of the best driving roads in Europe, this route will offer you dramatic landscapes of wild rugged coastline, golden beaches, glistening lakes, picturesque villages and spectacular mountain ranges.

Slea Head is your destination today, as you explore this dramatic and beautiful peninsula that is brimming with archaeological and historical wonders. Your first stop off will be Inch beach, famous for being the place where an inch is three miles’ long and where you can take a short walk along its golden sands. From there, you head westward to the most westerly point of Europe. Feast your eyes on breath-taking scenery of rugged coast, golden beaches and the magnificent Blasket Islands.

After breakfast, you will leave the Kingdom of Kerry behind and travel north along the edge of Europe to the coastal village of Doolin in County Clare. When visiting Doolin, one of the most talked must-sees is the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher. These impressive cliffs form a protective barrier from the Wild Atlantic Way to the rich and fertile land at the southern end of the Burren Region. Standing proudly above the Atlantic Ocean, their towering dominance is a spectacle that can best be appreciated on foot. There is also the opportunity to take a boat cruise close to the cliffs.

You depart Doolin traveling north towards Galway, the bohemian capital of Ireland. Along the way, you can explore the remarkable moon-like terrain of the wild Burren and the Atlantic waves that roll into the jaws of Galway Bay. Take the opportunity to soak in Galway’s vibrant streets, sample its wide variety of food offerings or take a tour exploring its unique historical places of interest.

Today you will travel back east to Dublin, where you will return your car rental to the airport and bid farewell to the Emerald Isle.
