DAY 1 DUBLIN – KILDARE – ENNIS
After meeting in Dublin, 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, an exclusive jockey’s-eye-view of the horses and the chance to explore the fascinating museum, we’ll move on to Portumna Castle: a semi-fortified house in County Galway. This evening will see us checking into our hotel in Ennis, where we’ll tuck in to our first hearty dinner together. (D)

Accommodation: The Old Ground Hotel (or similar)

WaterfordDAY 2 ENNIS – CLIFFS OF MOHER – KILLARNEY
First today: a walking tour through Ennis’ character-filled avenues, where we’ll hear enthralling myths, mysteries and tales of rebellions and riots. Then: prepare to be amazed at 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 onwards to Killarney: the gateway to the panoramic Ring of Kerry. (B)

Accommodation: The Cahernane House Hotel (or similar)


Farms the center of Ireland history

DAY 3 KILLARNEY – RING OF KERRY – KILLARNEY

(B,D)

Accommodation: The Cahernane House Hotel (or similar)

DAY 4 KILLARNEY – KENMARE – KINSALE
After finding out about the myriad nutritional benefits of seaweed on a morning walk at Derrynane Harbour, we’ll move on to Molly Gallivan’s Cottage – which, at first glance, appears to be an unassuming rustic 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. (B)

Accommodation: The Trident Hotel (or similar)

DAY 5 KINSALE
The cobbled streets that curve around Kinsale’s pretty bay are just begging to be explored, so we’ll spend the morning on a walking tour. This afternoon, you’ll be free to explore the town your own way. Interestingly, Kinsale 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. (B)

Accommodation: The Trident Hotel (or similar)

DAY 6 KINSALE – WATERFORD
This morning we’ll pass by Tipperary – where we’ll find out more about traditional Irish craftsmanship at a local crystal factory – before we move on to Waterford.

Whatever you choose to do with your time here, make sure you’re back in time for tonight’s farewell meal! (B,D)

Accommodation: Faithlegg Hotel (or similar)
