Explore Ireland's Highlights

Boasting a range of landscapes - nearly 2000 miles of dramatic coastline, acres of lush countryside, hills, mountains and moors - the postcard images of Ireland are no less spectacular for their fame. Quaint market towns and villages dot every county, and castles and curiosities abound in more rural areas to create a sense of timelessness. There is also a dynamic face to show the world in its great cities. Dublin, with one of Europe's liveliest cultural scenes, has more sights and sounds to take in than any one trip will allow.

This four-night itinerary offers the perfect taster tour of Ireland’s highlights. From Dublin, to the Wild West Coast of County Kerry and beyond, you will discover Ireland’s most impressive natural wonders and fascinating historical sites. You will visit Dublin highlights, such as Christ Church Cathedral and Trinity College; countless sites of historical importance, including Kilcrea Abbey and the Rock of Cashel; and some of Ireland’s most stunning and breath-taking landscapes and natural wonders, such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry, and Connemara. This luxury itinerary provides door to door luxury and relaxation from the moment you arrive into Ireland.

Day 1. Discover Dublin

Visiting Dublin is like taking a great big breath of fresh air. Always invigorating, this Viking city is at once modern and historic, exciting and relaxing. Dublin is your year-round destination for history, art, city, mountains, sea, nature, culture, food and fun. Throughout the day you'll have the chance to visit the iconic Christ Church Cathedral, explore the famous university created by royal charter of Queen Elizabeth I in 1592, Trinity College Dublin, and learn all about Guinness' rich history in the Guinness Storehouse.

Day 2. Dublin to Cork

Sprawling all over the south-west, this is the county that takes in everything from Cork city to some of the island’s most fertile farmland, its wildest peninsulas and its most colourful islands. Today will be a day filled with history and luxury as you wander through Kilkenny, a stunning medieval town, central to Ireland's history, discover the Rock of Cashel, one of Ireland's most spectacular archaeological sites, and visit the House of Waterford, high-end crystal makers.



Day 3. Ring of Kerry

County Kerry contains some of Ireland's most iconic scenery: surf-pounded sea cliffs and soft golden strands, emerald-green farmland criss-crossed by tumbledown stone walls, mist-shrouded bogs and cloud-torn mountain peaks. Discover some of the top historical locations in this area, such as Kilcrea Castle, and tour along one of the most iconic sections of the Wild Atlantic Way, the Ring of Kerry.

Day 4. The Cliff Coast

Enjoy a day tour up the West Coast of Ireland from Kilarney to Galway. You will pass through Counties Limerick & Clare on route along the Cliff Coast. Perhaps the most iconic section along this route is the Cliffs of Moher, reaching 214m at their highest point. Stop at Doolin, a beautiful quaint village that boasts some of the most breath-taking scenery in Ireland and with a colourful and welcoming centre.



Day 5. Connemara

You'll have a chance to see Connemara, a stunning area where water and land merge in a lacy shoreline of loughs, coves, islands and sea-swept blanket bogs. Drive along the Skye Road to get some of the best views, as well as discovering Kylemore Abbey a uniquely poignant neo-Gothic Church.

Day 6. Departure

Depending on return flight/train time, you might wish to indulge in some last-minute sightseeing or shopping on route to the airport/train station. Your private driver-guide will be on-call to offer recommendations and assist with transfers/tours around town that you might wish to do.
