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

“Interesting and Enjoyable”
- WA, Australia Mar 2018

The Irish highlights tour was a great way of seeing Ireland in miniature. You got to see the main areas. I found that if I went wandering through the villages instead of having lunch it gave me a full view of day to day life with the locals, popping into their supermarkets was a great way of seeing everything and grabbing a sandwich at the same time.

“Nice short intro into Irelands stunning landscapes, history and irish folklore.”
- VIC, Australia Dec 2017 3 Helpful Votes

Allie was a knowledgeable tour guide and Tom a very skilled coach driver - they were both personable and always happy to accommodate our asks, nothing seemed too difficult which made the whole experience very enjoyable. The tour covers the standard Ireland history and folklores but I would have...read more

“Tour was awesome, the sights breathtaking”
- QLD, Australia Jan 2015

The tour itself was amazing, Bernard our tour guide was really informative and had the best sense of humour. I did all of the optional extras but with some ie: dinner with dancing, myself and quite a few of us were thinking it was going to be traditional river dancing as it was the most expensive optional extra. It was a little disappointing to arrive and have two young girls dance for maybe 10 minutes. Overall and apart from that, the tour was awesome, the sights breathtaking and price for the...read more

“Strongly recommend Global Journeys and Trafalgar Tours”
- Australia Dec 2013

The booking process and communication with Global Journeys (Michelle) was smooth. The one week Irish Highlights (WRIH) tour was the best part of our holiday. Strongly recommend Global Journeys and Trafalgar Tours.
