Day 1
Arrive Dublin – Afternoon Sightseeing
Set your watch to the lively pace of Ireland's capital city - the springboard for your in-depth journey through the lush landscapes and enduring allure of Ireland. Our exploration of Dublin with a 'Local Specialist' will see us view St. Patrick's Cathedral and the colourful Georgian Squares. Spend some time at leisure exploring Dublin's pretty streets before joining your travel companions and Travel Director for a Welcome Reception celebrating traditional Irish flavours.
Day 2
Dublin – Galway – Cong
Our first stop today is Europe's Capital of Culture, where you will have an opportunity to see Galway Cathedral and stroll through Eyre Square. We overnight at one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' on the shores of Lough Corrib. Feel like lords and ladies as you relax in the elegant country quarters of the Lodge at Ashford Castle, celebrating the heritage and hospitality of Ireland.
Day 3
Cong – Westport – Clifden (2 Nights)
Leaving the elegant estate of Ashford Castle behind, our journey takes us to Westport House where we'll 'Connect With Locals' and indulge in a memorable 'Be My Guest' High Tea with tales of the Pirate Queen, and enjoy Banoffee and Baileys flavours in the Drawing Room of this stately 16th-century home. Our home for the next two nights is one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - the spectacular Abbeyglen Castle.
Day 4
Connemara Excursion
Drive through the 'savage beauty' of Connemara, as described by Oscar Wilde who was inspired by the region's craggy mountains, shimmering lakes and endless shades of green. We visit Kylemore Abbey, a magnificent castellated structure built as a family home and now inhabited by a group of Benedictine nuns. Venture into the secret nooks and crannies of its extensive walled Victorian garden before returning to your castle accommodation for a delicious dinner.
Day 5
Clifden – Kinvarra – Cliffs of Moher – Killarney (2 Nights)
This morning visit the Connemara marble artisan workshop where you'll 'Dive Into Culture' and witness first-hand how this famous green jade-like marble is carved. Later we stop at a charming sea port village of Kinvarra before visiting the plunging Cliffs of Moher that rise imposingly from the Atlantic, over 200 metres above the waters below. Then head to Killarney, one of Ireland's most beautiful heritage spots. Our home tonight is one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - Great Southern, a Victorian-styled hotel built over 160 years ago.
Day 6
Ring of Kerry Excursion
Enjoy a slow start to your morning, joining a 'Local Specialist' for a leisurely guided walk at Torc Waterfall, strolling over wooded paths and lakeshore trails. We embark on an epic drive next, exploring the enduring beauty of the Ring of Kerry whose enchanting coastal landscapes have inspired writers and poets for centuries.
Day 7
Killarney – Cashel – Kildare – Dublin
Discover the legacy of St. Patrick when you visit the imposing Rock of Cashel, once the traditional seat of the kings of Munster. View its ecclesiastical ruins with a 'Local Specialist' then traverse scenic landscapes to Kildare. Here you'll 'Dive Into Culture' and learn about Ireland's thoroughbred industry at the Irish National Stud. You'll have a rare opportunity to see the foaling unit, museum and of course the magnificent stallions that continue to make racing history. Later today, return to the Irish capital where you'll inject a bit of the craic into your Farewell Dinner with new friends.
