Wednesday 17th August 2022
Five Days
£599 (Adult)
£499 (Child)


Day One

We leave in the very early hours of the morning to catch our ferry from Holyhead to Dublin, Ireland.  We drive South to our hotel in the Waterford area where we check in early evening in time for our evening meal.

Day Two

We depart our hotel and make our way to the old Viking city of Waterford, famous for its hand-crafted crystal.  Afterward some free time, we continue on our journey to Cork, where a visit to the Vision Centre gives the history on Cork City.  You then have some free time to explore the English Market, one of Cork's oldest institutes.  From here we continue to our hotel for the next two nights in the Killarney area, where we will enjoy our evening meal together.

Day Three

Today brings the tour highlight, "The Ring of Kerry" (optional).  Enjoy a full day's drive through some of Ireland's most spectacular scenery with tour commentary from a traditional Irish guide (subject to availability) - plenty of photo stops and time for lunch.  The route encircles the unparalleled scenic beauty of the Iveragh Peninsula, and we get to visit Cahersiveen, the birthplace of Daniel O'Donnell, Molls Gap and the magnificent Gap of Dunloe.  We enjoy dinner at the hotel together before the evening is free to enjoy the Irish atmosphere in one of the many bars in town.  Don't forget to try the Murphy's Stout (Guinness of the Southwest).

Day Four

After time in the morning exploring Kilarney town, we bid farewell and make our way back towards Waterford, calling in at Cobh near Cork, the site of embarkation for so many immigrants heading for a new life in America and the last stop of the Titanic in 1912.  We continue to Blarney Castle and the most famous and most kissed stone in the world - The Blarney Stone (admission not included).  The legend says that kissing the stone gives you the gift of eloquence and persuasive speech! Or perhaps just take some time out for a little shopping in the World Famous Blarney Woolen Mills.  We arrive at our final hotel in time for our final dinner together.

Day Five

After breakfast, we head back up to Dublin to catch our ferry back to England for our return journey home.  We arrive back at our pick up points in the very early hours of Friday morning.
