Itinerary

Day 1: Dublin – Galway

At 8.30 am, we’ll leave Dublin and head west to the Tullamore Dew Whiskey Museum to learn how to make Uisce Batha, the water of life. These things are going to warm the cockles in your heart!

Day 2: Galway – Inis Mor (Apr-Oct) / Connemara (Nov – Mar) – Galway

Connemara and Galway City Day Tour from Dublin

The entire day is spent on Inis Mor, the largest of the Aran Islands. It is like nothing else, with 3,000 miles of stone walls. The locals are fluent Irish (Gaelic) and super friendly, so you can talk over a pint with them. Explore the awe-inspiring Dun Aonghasa, a 3000-year-old Iron Age ring perched on the edge of a 300-foot-high cliff, on foot, hire a horse and cart, or rent a bike, but don’t miss it.

It’s time to go back to the mainland for a pint of Guinness or two after a tremendous day. Instead, we explore the wilds of Connemara from November to March, home to many sandy beaches, rugged mountains, and misty peat bogs. At Kylemore Abbey, we stop and hear a love story that will definitely bring a tear to your eye. All this fresh air in Galway calls for a pint and some shenanigans.

Day 3: Galway – The Burren – Cliffs of Moher – Ennis

To explore this vibrant city, you’ll have some time in Galway. From the house of Burren to ancient tombs, fairies, leprechauns! Then it’s on to Moher‘s amazing Cliffs, popular all over the world for their breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. We’re staying overnight in Ennis, County Clare, the birthplace of Irish music. The pubs are packed with locals playing traditional Irish music.

Day 4: Ennis – Killarney

Killarney Scavenger Hunt: O' My Killarney: Roving Through!

All is about beautiful scenery and adventure today. We spend the day exploring the dramatic peninsula of Dingle, taking you to the edge of the ancient world, and listening to the tales of our ancient warriors. Before heading into the party town of Killarney for the night, spot The Sleeping Giant and The Three Sisters along the rugged coastline.

Killarney is a town on the banks of Lough Leane in County Kerry, Ireland. It’s a rest stop along the Ring of Kerry scenic route, as well as the start and end of the 200-kilometer Kerry Way walking track. St. Mary’s Cathedral is one of the town’s 19th-century structures. Killarney National Park is located over the bridge from the cathedral. Muckross House, Gardens & Traditional Farms is a Victorian residence in the park.

Day 5: Killarney – Blarney Castle – Rock of Cashel – Dublin

3-Day Cork, Blarney Castle, Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula Rail Tour

It’s time to leave behind the Kingdom of Kerry and make our way into the rebel county of Cork to Blarney Castle. Now is your opportunity to send a big juicy smacker to the stone to get the legendary gift of the gab.

Then there is a picture pause at the formidable Cashel Rock-once the seat of the Munster Kings- before we head back to Dublin’s Fair City, we arrive at about 5:30 pm.

Blarney Castle is a medieval fortification located in Blarney, Ireland, near Cork. Though earlier defenses existed on the site, the current keep dates from 1446 and was built by the MacCarthy of Muskerry dynasty, a cadet line of the Kings of Desmond. The Blarney Stone is one of the castle’s machicolations.
