Itinerary

01

Day 1

Tour starts 8.30am. Leaving Dublin we head out West to Tullamore Dew Whiskey Museum to learn how Uisce Batha, the 'water of life', is made. This stuff will warm the cockles of your heart! We continue across the peat bogs to the west coast and Galway Bay. Also known as the 'City of Tribes', Galway is sure to impress with its unique character and vibrant atmosphere.

02

Day 2

We spend a whole day on Inis Mór, the largest of the Aran Islands. With 3,000 miles of stone walls it is like nowhere else, the locals are fluent Irish (Gaelic) and super friendly so you can get chatting to them over a pint. Explore on foot, hire a horse and cart or rent a bike but don't miss the awe-inspiring Dun Aonghasa, a 3,000 year old Iron Age ring fort perched on the edge of a 300 foot high cliff. After a tremendous day it’s time to head back to the main land for a pint of Guinness or two. From November to March we visit the wilds of Connemara instead, home to many sandy beaches, rugged mountains and misty peat bogs. We stop at Kylemore Abbey and hear a romantic story that's sure to bring a tear to your eye. All this fresh air calls for a pint and some shenanigans in Galway.

Day 4

Today it’s all about breath-taking scenery and adventure. We spend the day exploring the dramatic Dingle Peninsula, take you to the edge of the ancient world and hear tales of our ancient warriors. Spot 'The Sleeping Giant' and 'The Three Sisters' amongst the rugged coastline and beautiful beaches before heading on to the party town of Killarney for the night.

05

Day 5

It’s time to leave the Kingdom of Kerry behind as we go to Blarney Castle in the rebel county of Cork . Now’s your chance to give the stone a big juicy smacker to get the legendary ‘gift of the gab’. You will now realise your Guide has kissed the stone many, many times… Then we have a photo stop at the imposing Rock of Cashel, once the seat of the Kings of Munster before we head back to the Fair City of Dublin arriving at approximately 5.30pm.
