1 Arrive Dublin – Afternoon Sightseeing
Tread in the footsteps of James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, through the lyrical streets of Dublin - your launch pad to a memorable encounter with Ireland's iconic highlights. After a leisurely morning, meet a 'Local Specialist' for a sightseeing tour with views of Trinity College, St. Patrick's Cathedral and the stately Georgian Squares. Indulge in a little Irish craic this evening, joining your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception. (WR) Stay: Ballsbridge/Maldron Parnell Square
2 Dublin – Galway – Bunratty – Limerick
We journey to Galway, the 'City of Tribes', where we'll see its stone cathedral on the banks of the Corrib and spend some free time exploring its colourful façades. Irish traditions and heritage are explored next, during a visit to Bunratty Castle and its Folk Park, a living history museum that reveals insights into life in Ireland during the 18th and 19th centuries. Be sure to drop into Mac's for a pint and meet the Bean an Tí, in one of the thatched cottages, and try to spot a fairy. Continue on to Limerick, for an orientation tour to view the 13th-century King John's Castle overlooking the Shannon. (B) Stay: Greenhills/Castle Oaks
3 Limerick – Cliffs of Moher – Killarney (2 Nights)
We leave Limerick and stop at the spectacular Cliffs of Moher to visit to the 'Atlantic Edge' exhibition. After a scenic drive, we take a short ferry journey across the Shannon estuary. Our home for the next two nights is the colourful little town of Killarney. (B) Stay: International/Innisfallen
4 Ring of Kerry Excursion
Circle the spectacular Ring of Kerry - its emerald green hills, centuries-old stone villages and vivid blue seascapes provide a soul-stirring backdrop for our leisurely drive around a beautiful coastline that has inspired writers and poets for centuries. We'll see Daniel O'Connell's Cahirciveen, the coastal village of Waterville, Moll's Gap and the Black Valley, renowned for being the last place in Ireland without electricity and telephone networks. (B)
5 Killarney – Blarney – Youghal – Waterford
Cross the rugged Kerry Mountains and travel to Blarney Castle to kiss the stone and acquire the 'gift of the gab'. En route to Waterford, we stop in the historic seaport town of Youghal, once home to Sir Walter Raleigh. This evening we dine in our hotel. (B/D) Stay: Fitzwilton
6 Waterford – New Ross – Co. Wicklow – Dublin
'Dive Into Culture' and witness the centuries-old tradition of crafting fine glass at the House of Waterford Crystal. Here we will watch the talented master craftsmen in their workshop creating exquisite pieces. Our next stop is in the town of New Ross, where we'll see the monument to John F. Kennedy who travelled to his ancestral family hometown in 1963. We'll visit the three-masted famine ship Dunbrody and 'Dive Into Culture' yet again, gaining insights into the tragic plight of the Irish emigrants who fled the potato famine during the 1800s. Continuing through County Wexford and the lush countryside of County Wicklow, we journey to Dublin stopping en route at Ballyknocken Farmhouse, where we'll 'Connect With Locals' over a 'Be My Guest' dinner and meet the Fulvio family. (B/BMG) Stay: Clayton Dublin Airport
7 Depart Dublin
For now, it's time to say a fond slán abhaile to your fellow travellers as you close the curtain on an unforgettable journey through the Emerald Isle. Airport transfers are available. Conditions apply. (B)

“Thoroughly enjoyable Irish Highlights tour”
- VIC, Australia Jun 2019

As you can see from my ratings, I was very impressed with and thoroughly enjoyed the Irish Highlights tour. Although a group of 51, there was a great camaraderie amongst the members. And against the odds there was little to no rain or wind, with plenty of sunshine. So great for photos at highlight places, especially The Cliffs of Moher and the Ring of Kerry. I loved Ireland and this was a tour filled with unforgettable memories.

“Wonderful trip through Southern Ireland ”
- WA, Australia May 2017 1 Helpful Vote

The trip was a non stop adventure through Southern Ireland. Experiencing local cuisine, beautiful countryside, history and so much more. I found all the staff from Trafalgar extremely helpful, from before I even left for my holiday to the shuttle dropping me off at the airport to come home. A truly wonderful holiday.

“Great way to travel for a first time solo traveller”
- Australia Jan 2011 1 Helpful Vote

Coach tours are a great way to travel for a 'travel virgin' travelling alone. The tours were good and I liked it that the tour wasn't full so I could have 2 seats to myself. It was great to have all the transfers organised and I would definitely like to travel by coach in the future. The additional extra entertainment is sometimes very schmaltzy and you cannot rely on the tour director for accurate info in regards to this as they are really trying to get extra numbers for the entertainment and...read more
