1 Arrive Dublin – Afternoon Sightseeing
Put a little Irish spring in your step and stroll through the lyrical capital of Dublin - your springboard to an unforgettable jaunt through the treasures of Ireland. Join a 'Local Specialist' this afternoon to explore the city's iconic sights. Walk the cobbled courtyard of Trinity College and enjoy priority access to see the Book of Kells. Then, enjoy a Welcome Reception to get to know your fellow travellers. (WR) Stay: Maldron Parnell Square
2 Dublin – Glendalough – Waterford – Cork
Departing Dublin this morning, we journey to the peaceful 6th-century monastic ruins at Glendalough which survived repeated Viking attacks over the centuries. We'll 'Dive Into Culture', watching the master craftsmen of the House of Waterford Crystal as they create delicate works of art. Our final stop today is the 'rebel' city of Cork, where we'll have a free evening to enjoy a little Irish craic and soak up the lively atmosphere of this university city. (B) Stay: Maldron Shandon
3 Cork – Cobh – Blarney – Killarney (2 Nights)
Stop in Cobh, the charming seaside town that was the final port of call for the tragic Titanic on its fateful voyage. Join your 'Local Specialist' for a walking tour to re-live the timeline of the Titanic, then embark on a scenic drive to Blarney Castle, kissing its famous stone to acquire the 'gift of the gab'. Continue to Killarney where you'll spend the next two nights. (B) Stay: Killarney Avenue
4 Ring of Kerry Excursion
Stop and admire Torc Waterfall during your leisurely guided walk with a 'Local Specialist' over wooden paths and lakeshore trails. The rest of our day is spent admiring the enduring beauty along Ireland's most scenic coastal drive around the Ring of Kerry. Later, join your companions for a 'Be My Guest' dinner at Muckross Farms, where you'll 'Connect With Locals', stepping back in time to learn about traditional Irish farm life against the scenic backdrop of the lakes of Killarney. (B/BMG)
5 Killarney – Foynes – Cliffs of Moher – Limerick
Delve into the era of the first transatlantic flights during a visit to the Flying Boat Museum in Foynes. At one time, it was the refuelling point for Pan Am's Flying Boat, the Yankee Clipper. 'Dive Into Culture' as you board a replica Boeing 314 to experience life as a passenger, learning how Irish Coffee was invented to treat weary passengers whose New York flights were cut short due to bad weather. This afternoon, we travel to the spectacular Cliffs of Moher which rise over 200 metres above the pounding Atlantic waves, before continuing to our hotel in Limerick. (B) Stay: Greenhills
6 Limerick – Depart Shannon

Our epic journey through the highlights of Ireland has come to an end. For now it's time to wish your fellow travellers slán abhaile as our memorable holiday comes to an end. Transfers are available. Conditions apply. (B)

Please Note: Your coach returns to Dublin from Shannon on Day 6. You are welcome to utilise this complimentary transfer. Drop-off in Dublin will be at the Trafalgar Dublin Hotel approximately 2pm depending on traffic.

“Tour of southern Ireland”
- NSW, Australia Aug 2018

We rarely take bus tours but we’re very happy we did this one. Our Guide Betty was delightful, considerate, amusing, informative and being a local, gave us a valuable insight into Irish culture. Highly recommended to gain an appreciation of Ireland in a short time.

“Enjoyed my holiday, but rather poor coach used”
- VIC, Australia Aug 2015

The coach used was rather poor and not as good as the one used in the Best of Britain tour the week earlier. One seat, (I think it was the second from the back, driver's side) had to be kept empty each day as the seat had been anchored too close to the one before and it was not comfortable to sit in. Also, the seats were not on a raised platform as the English bus' were, resulting in poorer visibility. The tour guide spoke a lot about subjects she knew about, but we seemed to pass a lot of towns,...read more
