Overview

Book online and enjoy exclusive savings on Tauck's 8 Day Ireland Forever. Irresistibly Irish and endless Emerald Isle fun, this family vacation takes your family from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher... travels include a journey by train, a ride on a World War II amphibious vehicle, and cooking class at a world-famous cooking school!

Itinerary

Tour begins: 3:30 PM, Conrad Dublin. A transfer is included from Dublin Airport to the Conrad Dublin hotel, centrally located in the heart of the Irish capital steps from St. Stephen’s Green. With a bustling city center and the River Liffey running through the middle of it, the best way to explore Dublin is by land and water!

You'll get a great introduction aboard a "Viking Splash Tour"... see all sides of the city while traveling aboard a World War II amphibious vehicle – its medieval core and Georgian squares... Trinity College... St. Patrick’s Cathedral and much more. Please join us for a welcome reception and dinner tonight, where we kick off a week of fun on your Tauck Bridges Ireland vacation with Celtic music and Irish step dancing lessons! Stay Two Nights: The Shelbourne (D)

The city of Dublin dates back to the 9th century, when seafaring Vikings founded a settlement here. This morning, you'll hunt for clues to its ancient history – and meet some costumed characters of days past – as you go on a scavenger hunt in the city's very old streets that ends at Trinity College. Following lunch at a traditional Irish pub in a centuries-old setting, the rest of the day is free to explore as you please. (B/L)

Continue your Ireland vacation adventure as you travel from Dublin through the Irish countryside to the southern tip of the Emerald Isle. There, in County Cork, you’ll visit the port city of Cobh with a choice of activity; a visit to Fota Island Obstacle course or a visit to the Titanic Experience Cobh and its emigration exhibits. Titanic Experience Cobh is located in the former offices of the White Star Line ticket office, the departure point for many White Star passengers – and your family engages in an interactive journey unlike any other, discovering the story of the ill-fated 1912 ship.

After a fitting welcome at Castlemartyr Resort, where you'll spend the next three nights, Irish eloquence of another kind will be yours to enjoy at tonight’s private barbecue, featuring an Irish storyteller. Stay Three Nights: Castlemartyr Resort (B/L/D)

Enjoy a leisurely morning on the grounds of your Irish home-away-from-home before heading to the Kinsale Pottery and Art Centre for a tour and an artful, hands-on afternoon spent making colorful ceramic pottery and traditional Celtic jewelry. Local artisans show you how to make traditional pottery, helping you hand-build and paint your sculpted piece. You’ll also get to try your hand at Celtic jewelry making using a range of skills covered in today’s class – from design to threading, knotting, fitting crimps and finishing – all in a workshop in the converted stables of the home farm for Ballinacurra House, which dates from the late 1700s. You'll have some free time to explore the town of Kinsale prior to returning to your resort for a free afternoon before dinner tonight. (B/L/D)

Have fun working up an appetite for a home-cooked Irish dinner tonight by enjoying a variety of outdoor activities at your resort this morning – including golf, hurling, archery*, and pony trap* rides. After lunch, head out to Ballymaloe, the only cookery school in the world located in the middle of its own 100-acre organic farm. Join your culinary hosts for a guided tour of the gardens and the working farm, experience a cooking demonstration by expert chefs... then show what you've learned when you pair up and cook your own authentically Irish dinner! After you've enjoyed the fruits of your culinary efforts, the fun continues when an Irish musician performs for your group tonight. (B/L/D)

Say goodbye to Castlemartyr and continue your Ireland family vacation through lovely, lush landscapes. Arrive in one of Western Ireland's most charming towns, Killarney, where you'll have a choice of activities including a carriage ride or a bicycle ride along the lake.* Late afternoon, depart for Limerick City and a two-night stay at The Savoy. Stay Two Nights: The Savoy Limerick (B)

Keep your camera at the ready today as you travel to the County Clare coast to visit one of the world’s most photographed natural wonders. Some five miles long, the Cliffs of Moher soar 659 feet over the crashing Atlantic Ocean waves below, providing you with amazing bird’s-eye views of the craggy Irish coast... can't wait to see the pictures! Discover Irish cultural heritage on a visit to Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, then join us this evening at the resort for a farewell barbecue overlooking the sea. It's the perfect way to end your family's perfect Ireland vacation adventure! (B/L/D)

Tour ends: Limerick. Fly home anytime. A transfer is included to Shannon Airport from The Savoy. You should allow a minimum of 3 hours for flight check-in. (B)
