Must do experiences and highlights around Ireland
Kiss the Blarney Stone
Said to give people the gift of the gab, the Stone of Eloquence is a major drawcard of Blarney Castle, as is its pretty grounds.
The Ring of Kerry
Travel this scenic circuit of the Iveragh Peninsula taking in views of the Atlantic coastline, dramatic mountain passes and ancient heritage sites.
The Aran Islands
In Galway Bay is a collection of islands where the landscape and clifftop forts jostle for attention, with equally impressive scenery and historic sites.
Pour a Pint at Guinness Storehouse
Home of the Guinness legacy which spans over 250 years, learn about the history that shaped this iconic stout and not only sample a pint where it originated, but learn to pour it perfectly.
The Cliffs of Moher
Rising up to 214 meters (702 feet) from the churning water, these sheer cliffs are a highlight of the windswept coastline. It’s no wonder puffins choose to make them home when they nest here from May – July.

I booked an 8 day trip around Ireland. It was easy to book, the tour guide and the driver were excellent. They were highly knowledgeable, approachable and very caring. The hotels were on the whole very good, and the extra activities were excellent fun and value. I learned a lot about Ireland, its history and its current situation. Could not have asked for more. Thanks Oshan and Graham for a wonderful trip.
