Dublin to Killarney
We leave Dublin at 8.30am and travel south-west through the lush green Irish countryside. Pass the River Liffey, we head to the imposing Rock of Cashel, proudly towering over the fields of the Golden Vale. Once the seat of the Kings of Munster and a medieval architectural delight, this iconic site will awaken your Celtic soul. We continue to the rebel county of Cork and the famous Blarney Castle. Now’s your chance to give the stone a big juicy smacker to get the legendary ‘gift of the gab’. You will now realise your Guide has kissed the stone many, many times… Tonight, use your new gift in a pub and get friendly with the locals in the party town of Killarney. It’s bound to be an epic night!
Killarney to Ennis
Today, it’s all about breathtaking scenery and adventure. We take the stunning Slea Head Drive down the coast and spend the day exploring the dramatic Dingle Peninsula, the highlight of the Wild Atlantic Way. Your Guide will take you to the edge of the ancient world and tell tales of our ancient heroes and warriors. Spot 'The Sleeping Giant' and 'The Three Sisters' amongst the rugged coastline and take in the stunning Coumeenoole Beach, before we travel through Tralee into County Clare. We spend the night in charming Ennis where the pubs are filled with locals playing traditional Irish music. Grab your pint of Guinness and get carried away by the lively tunes!
Ennis to Dublin
Today we brave the heights and soak up the dramatic views at the Cliffs of Moher that tower high above the wild Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy the wind on your face as you snap a photo of potentially the most famous cliffs in the world that were also used as a backdrop in Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince and The Princess Bride. Afterwards, we’ll explore the weird and magical world of the Burren, Ireland’s lunar landscape and home to fairies and leprechauns! Leave the mesmerising landscapes behind and have lunch in one of the brightly painted pubs of Galway, Ireland’s cultural capital, before returning to Dublin at approximately 5.30pm.
