  • DAY 1 - Dublin Historic and full of character, Dublin is where we'll meet the group and begin our adventure. This evening is an opportunity to get to know one another over a delicious welcome dinner. Accommodation: Ashling Hotel (or similar)
  • DAY 2 - Dublin - Kildare - Ennis After breakfast, we'll hit the road to our first stop: County Kildare, where we've an appointment with the Irish National Stud. After being treated to a private tour, we'll move on to the award-winning gardens of Birr Castle Demesne. Take some time to wander around the grounds and admire the awe-inspiring science and engineering that has been invested in creating such a unique residence. This evening will see us checking into our hotel in Ennis, where we'll enjoy some free time to spend at our leisure. Accommodation: The Old Ground Hotel (or similar)
  • DAY 3 - Ennis - Cliffs of Moher - Killarney First today: an orientation tour through Ennis' character-filled avenues, where we'll hear enthralling myths, mysteries and tales of rebellions and riots. Then: prepare to be amazed by the rugged natural beauty of the Cliffs of Moher. The keen-eyed among us - or perhaps just those who packed binoculars - may even spot a resident puffin or two. After an invigorating afternoon, we'll travel across the Shannon Estuary to Killarney: the gateway to the panoramic Ring of Kerry. Accommodation: The Cahernane House Hotel (or similar)
  • DAY 4 - Killarney - Ring of Kerry - Killarney This morning will see us begin our journey around the awe-inspiring Ring of Kerry. Our first stop: the Skellig Experience, where we'll gain a fascinating insight into the lives of the early Christian monks that once broke bread at the Skellig Michael monastery. When we return to Killarney, the evening will be ours to relax and reflect on the day's adventures. Accommodation: The Cahernane House Hotel (or similar)
  • DAY 5 - Killarney - Releagh - Kinsale This morning we'll make our way to Molly Gallivan's Cottage - which, at first glance, appears to be an unassuming farmhouse. But there's more to it than first meets the eye! More than 200 years ago, Mrs Gallivan supported her seven children by brewing illicit whiskey - and her home was, in fact, a clandestine pub. We'll learn stories of the enterprising Mrs Gallivan's antics before travelling onwards to the medieval town of Kinsale, where coastal views, cosy pubs and brightly coloured houses await us. The cobbled streets that curve around the pretty bay are just begging to be explored, so we'll enjoy a walking tour with a local guide. Bearings established, you'll be free to seek out the town's hidden treasures at your own pace before we head to our accommodation for the evening. Accommodation: Actons Hotel (or similar)
  • DAY 6 - Kinsale - Cobh - Waterford This morning we'll move on to the charming waterfront town of Cobh. Interestingly, Cobh was the departure point for the last 123 passengers who boarded the Titanic - and you'll notice poignant markers of this as you make your way around. Later, we'll continue to Waterford. Dating back to Viking times, Waterford is Ireland's oldest city - with over 1,000 years' worth of history to explore. Gain a fascinating insight into how the city's famed crystal is made before we travel on to our accommodation and savour tonight's final meal with the group. Accommodation: Faithlegg House Hotel (or similar)
  • DAY 7 - Waterford - Dublin After breakfast, we'll return to cosmopolitan Dublin - where we'll say our goodbyes.
