7 Day Tour – 544161

Day 1 Dublin

  • Guinness Storehouse
  • Trinity College and Book of Kells
  • Christchurch Cathedral

It’s impossible not to fall in love with Dublin’s stately Georgian houses, gregarious locals, laid back lifestyle and yes, even the rainy weather! This incredible city has a lifetime’s worth of attractions, so don’t be surprised if you want to come back as soon as you leave. Just some of the must-do’s include pouring a pint of the ‘black stuff’ at the Guinness Storehouse, viewing the Book of Kells, and people watching on Grafton Street from Bewley’s Cafe.

DAY 2 Cork

  • Blarney Castle
  • Cobh
  • West Cork

Known as the ‘rebel county’, Cork is the largest county in Ireland and has some of the biggest attractions outside of Dublin; Blarney Castle, where you can earn the gift of eloquence by kissing the Blarney Stone, the seaside town of Cobh where the Titanic left for her maiden voyage, the untamed and unspoiled scenery of West Cork, and of course, the English Market, which the Queen of England herself saw fit to visit in 2011.

DAY 3 Kerry

  • Ring of Kerry
  • Dingle Peninsula
  • Killarney National Park

Known as ‘the Kingdom’, Kerry is the heart of ancient Ireland and still the most stunning spot on the island. From quaint seaside villages like Dingle (where a dolphin voluntarily puts on a show for the boats every afternoon) to the busy tourist spot of Killarney, not to mention one of the most breathtaking road trips in Europe, the Ring of Kerry, and the simply astounding Killarney National Park a visit to Kerry is unforgettable.

DAY 4 Galway

  • Connemara
  • Kylemore Abbey
  • Galway City

Galway is the wild west of Ireland at its best. Rugged coastlines, dramatic hills and valleys, isolated islands, emerald fields and towns filled with traditional music, dancing, and language. Galway city is a tangle of cobbled streets, cosy pubs and mouth watering restaurants, the magnificent Connemara landscape is just a short drive away and the traditional Gaelic community of the Aran Islands are reachable with a quick boat trip too, although they both seem a world away.

DAY 5 Mayo

  • Croagh Patrick
  • Cong
  • Clew Bay

Mayo is often first on the list of anyone travelling to the west of Ireland, and for good reason. This large coastal county is where you’ll find the brooding Croagh Patrick, which pilgrims climb to honour Ireland’s patron saint every year; the village of Cong, where The Quiet Man was filmed and where an exquisite medieval abbey stands; and of course the vibrant town of Westport, situated along the picturesque Clew Bay.

  • Glenveagh National Park
  • Donegal Castle
  • Blue Stack Mountain Drive

Donegal is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt, isolated parts of the whole island. If you want to get away from it all and experience this country at its best, Donegal is where to go. Surfing fans will adore the beach town of Bundoran, while outdoor adventurers will find everything they need at the breathtaking Glenveagh National Park and indoorsy types will find plenty of cosy pubs in Letterkenny and Donegal Town.

DAY 7 Meath

  • Newgrange
  • Trim Castle
  • Hill of Tara

County Meath was considered to be the centre of ancient and Celtic Ireland, and was even its own kingdom at one stage.
