Itinerary

2015 Irish Spirit - 8 Days / 7 Nights

Day 1: Dublin Tour & Trinity College
Your Irish trip starts at 2:00 pm when you meet your guide at your Dublin hotel and set out on an introductory tour of central Dublin. See fashionable shopping areas around Grafton and Nassau Streets, view Dublin’s elegant Georgian squares and pause at the evocative figures of the Famine Memorial. Walk through the campus of Trinity College with a student guide to view the illuminated manuscript of the 8th century Book of Kells and learn how monks created this and other masterpieces. Back at your hotel meet with your tour director and travel companions for a welcome drink and discuss your itinerary. Dine independently this evening.

Day 2: Farm Visit & Waterford Crystal
Drive through the Irish countryside to County Kilkenny to visit Jerpoint Park Farm for tea and home-made scones. Chat with the owners and watch dogs skillfully herd sheep. Also see one of Ireland’s best examples of a deserted 12th century town. Continue south to the famous House of Waterford Crystal to watch how molten glass is transformed into elaborate and shimmering trophies by the skilled blowers and cutters and view a huge array of stemware in the showrooms. Check in to your hotel in the center of Waterford and, after dinner, take a gentle walking tour with a local guide to learn about the region’s history.

Day 3: Titanic Experience Cobh & Blarney Castle
Travel along the south coast to Cobh to visit the Titanic Experience. Learn about the 123 Irish passengers who embarked on the ill-fated RMS Titanic. Visit Blarney Castle to kiss the famous “Stone of Eloquence.” Shop at the Blarney Woollen Mills for quality Irish-made souvenirs or take a walk around the village green. Drive into County Kerry to Killarney, a small town that’s big on glorious scenery. Check in to your hotel and relax before dinner. In the evening you may like to head to one of the many pubs where live music is played.

Day 4: Ring of Kerry & Jarvey's Irish Night
View the highlights of Ireland’s natural scenery on the famous Ring of Kerry route. The road winds between the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks Mountains on one side and the Atlantic coastline on the other. Take the bridge to Valentia Island to visit the Skellig Experience to learn about the rocky islands off the end of the peninsula where monks lived in early Christian times. Today the islands form a protected bird sanctuary. Stop in the attractive village of Sneem and at Moll’s Gap for panoramic mountain views. In the evening head to Jarvey's for dinner with a fun traditional show.

Day 5: Cliffs of Moher & Galway Bay
Drive north to Tarbert for a 20-minute ferry ride across the wide River Shannon Estuary. View the Cliffs of Moher, a spectacular wall of sandstone that reaches to almost 700 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. Walk along the top of the cliffs to O’Brien’s Tower for views of Connemara and the Aran Islands on a clear day. Motor through the Burren and around the shores of Galway Bay to take a short orientation tour of Galway city before checking in to your hotel.

Today explore another of Ireland’s famous scenic regions, Connemara, with granite hills, sparkling lakes and peat bogs.

In Cong take a walking tour with a local guide to see locations for “The Quiet Man” movie, made in the village in 1952. Head to a traditional pub for a casual lunch.
