Meals: D

Day 2: The magnificent Cliffs of Moher, The Burren, and a day at an Irish castle

Make your way today through The Burren, an eerie landscape of limestone outcrops, en route to the Cliffs of Moher. Over five miles long and towering up to 660 feet, the cliffs reign unrivaled over the Atlantic Ocean coastline, offering amazing views. Sample a taste of country life during lunch in Burren; return to Dromoland Castle for a day spent as you please.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 3: A bit of Blarney & a concert in Cork

Your Ireland travel continues to County Cork today for a two-night stay in an elegant manor house hotel and an in-depth discovery of all things Irish – including a visit to legendary Blarney Castle; get ready to pucker up for the “gift of gab” if you climb its ramparts to kiss the magical stone. After time to explore Blarney's castle and village and enjoy lunch on your own, continue on to Cork and the Hayfield Manor Hotel, your stately home for the next two nights. This evening, you’re invited to a private recital at St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral before returning for dinner at your hotel.


Meals: B, D

Day 4: A trip to Kinsale and discovering Cork as you please

This morning, head out from your manor house accommodations to coastal Kinsale, where you'll visit historic Charles Fort, one of the finest examples of a 17th-century fortification in Ireland; spend some time exploring and have lunch on your own in this lovely harborside village. Return to Cork for an afternoon spent exploring the city as you wish. Dinner tonight is à la carte at your leisure at one of the hotel's fine restaurants.


Meals: B, D

Day 5: Waterford Crystal, then on to Dublin & Teeling Whiskey

Waterford Crystal has long enjoyed a privileged reputation as among the finest glassware in the world – see how its luxury crystal is crafted on a visual journey across more than 220 years of glass making at the new Waterford Crystal center. Then, your Ireland travel continues to the capital city of Dublin for a three-night stay. After time to settle into your landmark hotel overlooking St. Stephen's Green, enjoy a taste of Dublin cuisine during dinner at a local restaurant.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 6: A day well spent in Dublin's fair city

Experience an in-depth introduction to Dublin on a sightseeing tour that includes lively O’Connell Street, elegant Georgian squares, and beautiful parks, and we’ll take you inside Trinity College Library. Then take some time to enjoy the city as you wish, perhaps wandering along eclectic Grafton Street, strolling along the River Liffey, exploring St. Stephen’s Green (on which your hotel is situated), or experiencing the grandeur of Merrion Square; laid back and laden with charm, Dublin is small, compact and made for walking. Have dinner on your own tonight; Dublin restaurants – of which there are many to choose from close to your hotel – and Irish cuisine have earned high marks on the European culinary scene.


Meals: B

Day 7: The secrets of Glendalough in the Wicklow hills & Dublin as you please

Extend your Ireland travel outside Dublin into the hills of Wicklow to the monastic settlement of Glendalough, founded in the 6th century, via Tauck’s scenic Yellow Roads. Most of the ruins and sites date from the 10th century and are remarkably preserved; see some of the most significant ones on a guided tour. Return to Dublin midday for more time to explore this legendary city at your leisure. Please join us tonight for a farewell reception followed by dinner at your stately hotel on St. Stephen's Green; your Irish eyes will be smiling as you celebrate the new friendships you've made and the fun you've had on the Emerald Isle!


Meals: B, D
