WaterfordDAY 1 DUBLIN - KILDARE - ENNIS

We begin our Ireland history tour on Dublin, but we don’t have to go far before we’re in County Kildare. Its jewel-like scenery, criss-crossed with waterways, has been the breeding ground for some of the world’s finest horses. So it’s only right that our first stop is the Irish National Stud, where we’re treated to a private tour, an exclusive view of the horses and the chance to explore the fascinating museum. Ennis a quaint old Irish town rich in local craft shops and lovely cafes, where we have athree-course welcome dinner. (D)

Overnight: The Old Ground Hotel (or similar)


DAY 2 ENNIS - CLIFFS OF MOHER - KILLARNEY

Ennis’ character-filled avenues are ideal for meandering. But a walking tour really brings to life the enthralling tales of rebellions and riots, myths and mysteries that swirl around these medieval lanes. When we move on to the UNESCO Geopark of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher, your imagination will really run wild. The best view of these untamed landscapes comes by boat, so we take to the water on a mini-cruise and marvel at the sheer scale of these awe-inspiring, 700ft natural phenomena. The keen-eyed among us – or perhaps just those who packed binoculars – may even spot a resident puffin.Travel through fertile farmland with tin roofed barns and herds of meandering sheep and dairy cows. Back on dry land we head to Tralee . (B)

Overnight: Killarney


Farms the center of Ireland historyDAY 3 TRALEE - RING OF KERRY - KILLARNEY

Edge-of-the-world seascapes. Rippling green lands studded with ancient forts. Throw in welcoming villages that rub shoulders with mysterious ruins and you have the beguiling Ring of Kerry. At the Skellig Experience we glimpse the lives of early Christian monks that broke bread here. In pretty-as-a-postcard Portmagee, we soak up the sight of tiny boats bobbing before brightly coloured fishermen’s houses. And at Staigue Fort we go back in time to 300AD. Then it’s on to Sneem, a village brimming with traditional buildings, restaurants and craft shops, known as the ‘Knot in the Ring’. It’s an all-round romantic place to end our day in whatever way you fancy. (B, D)

Overnight: Killarney


DAY 4 TRALEE - KENMARE -KINSALE

Kenmare is a delightful market village, set in one of the most beautiful areas of Ireland, where great purple mountains compete with carpeted green vales, and dramatic seascapes.    We’re at the mouth of Kenmare Bay, in the town founded by Sir William Petty in 1670. Our first stop of the day is Molly Gallivan’s cottage. At first glance it seems to be a rustic farmhouse in a rural spot, frozen in time. But there’s more to it. More than 200 years ago, this enterprising widow supported her seven children by brewing illicit whiskey – and her home was in fact a clandestine pub. Our next stop takes us to the medieval town of Kinsale. Sea-and-sand views, cosy pubs and brightly-hued houses make this a picturesque port of call – and our final stop today. (B)

Overnight: Actons Hotel (or similar)


DAY 5 KINSALE - MIDLETON - KILKENNY

The cobbled streets that curve around this pretty bay are just begging to be explored. So we spend the morning on a walking tour of Kinsale. A local guide lets us in on the town’s secret sand maritime traditions, leading us to the 800-year-old Church of Saint Multose and the unique star-shaped Charles Fort. Just a hop, skip and jump away is Cork, the county city. Our whirlwind tour takes in its must-see sights, before we depart for the coast and to Cobh – a maritime hub that’s played a huge role in Irish culture. It was the departure point for the last 123 passengers to board the Titanic and you’ll notice poignant markers of this around the town. It’s also home to the Old Midleton Distillery.  Follow the old distillery trail through mills, maltings, corn stores, stillhouses, warehouses, and kilns. We get a final cultural fix as we absorb the medieval charm of Kilkenny before indulging in a final feast – fit for a king. (B, D)

Overnight: River Court Hotel (or similar)


Ring of KerryDAY 6 KILKENNY - DUBLIN

The trip’s not over just yet. Before heading back to Dublin, we make time to stroll around Kilkenny’s 12th century castle and the charismatic parkland that unfolds around it. Our route to the capital is just as scenic. Keep your camera poised as our coach climbs heather-clad hills and crosses fairytale glens that carpet the Wicklow Mountains. At the heart of that dramatic scenery is Avoca village, where we pay homage to an Irish institution – Ballykissangel. Pull up a stool in Fitzgerald’s Pub, made famous in the BBC TV series. Then pick up one final memento of your travels at the Woollen Mills. Go home knowing that you have been in the best Ireland sites to see. (B)
