Detailed Description

Your 10-day Ireland tour takes you beyond the charms of Dublin to reveal the majesty of the landscape, cities, and villages steeped in culture, history, and ineffable enchantment. The scenery protected ancient scholars from the turmoil of mainland Europe. Villagers carried on the traditions of their forefathers through oratory, music, and dance. Trails captivate visitors and locals with dramatic views made for trekkers, horseback riders, and cyclists eager to find a pure panorama. The exploration begins with your arrival in Dublin, where your private transfer escorts you from the airport to your hotel.

Dublin is the perfect city to settle into the inviting ambiance of Ireland. Georgian architecture accentuates the open spaces of the picturesque parks. The shadows of famous Irish writes linger in the streets, bookstores, and libraries, from Oscar Wilde to James Joyce, while the cobbled lanes lead to cafes, jewelry shops, and 18th-century architecture of the House of Parliament. County Mayo, the rural landscape of the west coast burst to life, featuring remarkably preserved castles, dramatic coastline, and majestic mountain summits. Whether spending time on the grounds of your gorgeous hotel learning the art of falconry or trekking along the private trails, you can explore the splendors of the rolling verdant hills leading to the quiet villages and captivating scenery of Connemara.

The Great Atlantic Way encompasses 1,600 miles along Ireland’s western seaboard. Travel along a portion of the great trail to view the fascinating cliffs, beaches, bays, and inlets before reaching Galway City, known for its historic streets, lively stories, and preserved culture. Stand at the edge of the Cliffs of Moher en route to the city of Limerick. The beauty of Limerick encompasses both the splendors of its past and the inviting contemporary ambiance. Whether enjoying the scenic grounds of your hotel or wandering through the prehistory of Lough Gur, you can find excitement, leisure, and opulence.

The pleasures of Killarney spread across the waters of the famous glassy lakes and the unique indentation of the landscape between two soaring mountains known as the Dunloe Gap. While exploring Killarney and the greater region of County Kerry, you can cruise the lakes, explore villages and ancient ring fortresses on the Ring of Kerry, and bask in the soothing comforts of your gorgeous hotel. Spend a day experiencing the seductive grandeur of Ballyfin Village during your final full day in Ireland. With endless outdoor pursuits and historical monuments, along with the country’s favorite pastime of looking for a good time, referred to in Gaelic as craic, your Ireland tour guides you through the small country and its huge reputation.
