  • Day 1 | Dublin - Cashel - Blarney - Cork

    Departing Dublin at 08:00, we drive through Ireland’s midlands, passing the location of the famous ‘Braveheart’ movie and making the first visit of the day at Rock of Cashel, an amazing medieval complex of ruined castle and cathedral ruins, perched high above county Tipperary (with plenty of time to explore and take photos).

    Following a short drive, we arrive in Cork city, to enjoy some free time – we strongly suggest a visit to the gourmet ‘English Market’, where you can enjoy some fine Irish produce for lunch. We continue on to Blarney Castle, the home of the famous ‘Blarney Stone’ (don’t forget to kiss the stone and take home the Irish ‘gift of the gab’ as a souvenir!). The town of Blarney is also home to the famous woolen mills, where you can shop for beautiful woolen clothes, accessories and crafts.

    Overnight in Cork city tonight with a wide range of options for evening entertainment.

  • Day 2 | Cork - Cliffs of Moher & Burren - Dublin

    We begin our day driving through more of the stunning Irish countryside en route to Limerick city. Following some quick photo stops along the way at St. John’s Castle and the river Shannon – we continue along the world famous ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ (imagine white-golden sands, dolphins and world-class surf).

    We take time to appreciate the rocky ‘Burren’ landscape of Co. Clare – a unique limestone landscape and natural wonder – where Mediterranean, Arctic and Alpine flowers grow side by side. Let your guide take you through the tragic history of the Irish Potato Famine, during which more than a million of our ancestors left Irish shores for new homes in North America and further afield. Our lunch-stop will be in the charming town of Doolin, which sits right on the Atlantic shoreline and boasts a wealth of traditional Irish pubs and eateries.

    After lunch, its straight to the ‘Cliffs of Moher’. Everyone who visits agrees that the Cliffs are one of Ireland’s absolute highlights. Standing taller than some New York skyscrapers these walls of rock proudly mark the western edge of Europe. On clear days you can see the Aran Islands out at sea and Connemara’s Twelve Pins mountain range on the horizon. The tour will pause here for 90 minutes – ample time to take in the views, enjoy the fresh Atlantic air and maybe a relaxing walk or picnic. Afterwards, the tour bus will continue to medieval Bunratty Castle, built during the 15th Century. We’ll enjoy a refreshment & photo stop here before the journey back to Dublin with unforgettable memories!

    The tour is scheduled to return to Dublin by 19:30 (all timings approximate).
