DUBLIN Ireland's Capital City DUBLIN Morning orientation drive to see O’Connell Street, Georgian squares, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Trinity College. Free time. (B)

CITY SIGHTS “In Dublin’s fair city where girls are so pretty” you’ll also find great personality and charm. The charisma of Dubliners and the bounty of pubs here is matched only by the gorgeous Georgian Squares, 12th-century St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and legendary library of Trinity College.


Day 3

DUBLIN–GALWAY–CLIFFS OF MOHER–ENNIS Notes Above High Sea GALWAY Visit the popular seaside destination on Ireland’s west coast.
CLIFFS OF MOHER Visit the 668-foot-high cliffs above the Atlantic Ocean. (B) 203 mi / 326 km

PICTURE PERFECT Feast your eyes on a stunning spectacle of sea and sky on the Cliffs of Moher on the Wild Atlantic Way. Try to resist the inspiration that has moved artists, poets, and scientists throughout the ages as you stand on the edge of 320 million years of geologic perfection on the rugged coastline of County Clare.

RING OF KERRY Panoramic drive around the island’s southwestern tip and [LF] an Irish coffee demonstration at one of the local bars. (B) 181 mi / 300 km

LOCAL TASTES It’s crystal clear why we get a warm feeling on the Ring on Kerry with traditional Irish Coffee – as much a warm welcome now as it was for stranded travelers in 1943. It was a wintry night in Limerick when Foynes Port chef Joe Sheridan concocted this soothing elixir of hot coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar, and whipped cream to make their cancelled flight a little more palatable. Raise a toddy glass of Caife Gaelach with a hearty “slainte!”

One of the last estate villages that remain standing in Ireland, the village was built by an 18th-century landlord to house the castle workers there. It’s true!


Day 6

WATERFORD–KILKENNY–DUBLIN Cat Fights & Capital Lights KILKENNY See one of Ireland’s prettiest towns with medieval cobblestones.
DUBLIN Free time. (B) 120 mi / 192 km

LEGENDS & LORE “There once were two cats from Kilkenny.
