Itinerary:

Tuesday,October 15 Fly to Shannon from Boston

Wednesday OCTOBER 16 - SHANNON / CLIFFS OF MOHER / DROMOLAND / KILLARNEY: Welcome to Ireland! After collecting your bags, you will meet with your driver in the arrival hall at Shannon Airport. Shortly afterwards, you will depart and make your way out to see the Cliffs of Moher which have majestically faced the Atlantic for over 350 million years and their beauty is incomparable – rising 700 feet above the pounding Atlantic waves and stretching 5 miles along the coast of County Clare in the west of Ireland. From the cliffs on a clear day one can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay. O’Brien’s Tower stands near the highest point and has served as a viewing point for visitors for hundreds of years. Afterwards, travel a short distance to Caherconnell Sheep farm where you will stop to enjoy a sheepdog demonstration. Then on to the amazing Dromoland Castle for afternoon tea fit for royalty! You will enjoy scrumptious finger sandwiches, warm scones with clotted cream and homemade jams, delicate pastries, and loose-leaf teas from around the world. Afterwards, depart and make your way to Dingle for dinner and overnight. (AT/D)

Thursday, OCTOBER 17 - DINGE PENINSULA: Enjoy breakfast. Afterwards, enjoy a sightseeing tour of the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. This peninsula is a Gaeltacht, a unique area where the Irish language is preserved. You will see Slea Head; beehive huts; view of the Blasket Islands; harbors; beaches; all spectacular! Stop at Inch beach. A wild and wind-swept dune system stretches along this amazing sand spit as it reaches out into Dingle Bay towards Rossbeigh Beach and the northern shores of the Iveragh Peninsula creating a majestic panorama. Afterwards, stop in Kelly’s Bar for lunch (on own) before continuing on to Killarney for overnight. The town on the lakes is famous for its lively pubs and open, cheerful atmosphere, full of what the Irish call “craic!” – Gaelic for fun. This evening, enjoy dinner in your hotel. (B/D)

Friday, OCTOBER 18 - RING OF KERRY: Travel the road that winds around the beautiful Iveragh Peninsula, better known as The Ring of Kerry. It is undoubtedly one of the most magical places in all Ireland. Here mountains, valleys, lakes, and sea blend into a landscape that is often breathtaking beyond words. A number of stops will allow you to marvel at the spectacular scenery; walk around the colorful village of Sneem and stop at Moll’s Gap for amazing views of the Lakes of Killarney. Return to Killarney for overnight. (B)

Saturday, OCTOBER 19 - BLARNEY / COBH / KILKENNY: This morning after breakfast, depart and start your journey towards Kilkenny. Travel via Cork where you will visit Blarney Castle with its magical stone that gives the gift of eloquence for a kiss. You have plenty of free time to explore and shop in Blarney Woollen Mills too! Afterwards, continue to Cobh where you visit the Old Church Cemetery. The cemetery contains a significant number of important burials, including 3 mass graves and several individual graves containing the remains of 193 victims of the passenger ship RMS Lusitania which was sunk by a German torpedo off the coast of Cork during the First World War. Afterwards, make your way to Kilkenny for overnight and dinner. (B/D)

Sunday, OCTOBER 20 - EXCURSION TO WATERFORD / SMITHWICK’S: After breakfast, head to Waterford. Visit the House of Waterford Crystal where a factory tour introduces you to all aspects of traditional crystal production. Then return to Kilkenny where you visit the Black Abbey which was established as a Dominican friary in 1225. It was considered a tranquil spot, as it fell outside the walls of Kilkenny City. After many turbulent years, the abbey was restored and opened as a public place of worship in the 1800s. Then on to visit the Smithwick’s Experience. Take a 300-year journey into the history of Smithwick’s ale and enjoy interactive experiences, all led by one of our local guides. Enjoy a complimentary pint of Smithwick’s at the end of your tour. This evening you are free in Kilkenny. (B)

Monday, OCTOBER 21 - KILDARE / DUBLIN: After breakfast, depart from Kilkenny and head towards Dublin. Visit the town of Kildare and visit the Irish National Stud and Japanese Gardens. The Stud Farm is the home of equine royalty, immaculately bred stallions who can be seen and admired alongside protective mares, frolicking foals, and athletic yearlings. In the world-famous Japanese Gardens, you can follow the path called the 'Life of Man' which traces the passage of a soul from birth to death and beyond, at the same time providing a meeting place for the cultures of East and West. Then on to Dublin for overnight. (B)
