Tour Itinerary

Why is Ireland such a special place in the hearts and minds of travelers? Sure and begorrah, the answer is the stuff of Irish legend and lore. From Limerick to Killarney to Dublin—take plenty of free time to connect with Ireland at your own pace (with the wind at your back). Choose à la carte optional excursions on MyCosmos to help you explore the Emerald Isle, with your Tour Director‘s tips and your CosmosGO app keeping you on the right path to find that wee bit of Irish in us all. Your escorted vacation in Ireland with Cosmos Lite is an Irish blessing of abundant free time, optional excursions, your CosmosGO mobile app, and a hands-on Tour Director ready to assist with directions, suggestions, and local lore. Start with two nights in Limerick, known for its warm, authentic Irish personality—as well as the famed poetry of the colorful Limerick. An ideal walking city, Limerick is the perfect place to explore with your CosmosGO app to discover the sites—from castle to cathedral to museum to pub. There’s an optional opportunity to visit the stunning Cliffs of Moher and the lively city of Galway. Next, set off for one of Ireland’s loveliest towns, Adare, with stone buildings, thatched cottages, medieval ruins, and the real treasure—freshly baked scones. Spend two nights in Killarney—the Town in the Park—and enjoy the Irish shops, Killarney National Park, or any of your MyCosmos optional activities including the beautiful Ring of Kerry drive. Pass through the splendid scenery of the Kerry Mountains on the way to County Cork. Stop in Blarney, famous for its “Stone of Eloquence” that promises the Irish gift of gab. Share photos of your Irish adventure with your friends and family back home with your CosmosGo app so they won’t think you’re full of Blarney! On to the fair city of Dublin with its statue-lined O’Connell Street, Georgian squares, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Trinity College. You’ll soon discover that Dublin is as intimate as a village and friendly as your favorite pub. Walk the streets that gave us the literary works of Yeats, Beckett, and Joyce. Maybe reserve a spot on MyCosmos for a tour of the Guinness Storehouse to sample a pint of the “black stuff” or an evening of the best of Irish music, song and dance at Taylor’s Irish Cabaret. Your Cosmos Lite guided tour of Ireland is packed with free time and optional excursions to make it your lucky day, every day—like a pot-o-gold to spend just as you please!

Day 1: Arrive in Limerick, Ireland.
There once was a traveler from...
Welcome to Ireland! The first day of your adventure gives you time to explore the lively city of Limerick, known for its warmth, authentic Irish personality, and lilting Limerick poems. Your Tour Director is available in the afternoon with free-time suggestions to point you in the right direction.

Day 2: Limerick.
New Adventures on the Old Sod
Limerick is an ideal walking city and easy to navigate, particularly with your CosmosGO app in-hand. Among the sights to discover are 13th-century King John’s Castle; the Hunt Museum, housed in the elegant 18th-century Custom House; St. Mary’s Cathedral, the oldest and most historic building in Limerick; and the legendary Treaty Stone. Take time to slow down and rub elbows with the locals over a pint of Guinness or an Irish coffee in one of the many pubs. (B)

Day 3: Limerick—Adare—Killarney.
Irish Beauty, Killarney, and Kerry
We’ll venture from Limerick to Adare, renowned as one of Ireland’s prettiest towns. Set off on its main street, punctuated with beautiful stone buildings, thatched cottages, medieval ruins, and a picturesque village park. Take time for a morning coffee and freshly-baked scones before continuing to Killarney, the popular resort town in County Kerry. (B)

Day 4: Explore Killarney.
The Town in the Park
Known for enthusiastic and welcoming people, this vibrant “Town in the Park” is a very special place to discover. Enjoy free time to browse through the shops and boutiques, or take a relaxing stroll in Killarney National Park. Log on to MyCOSMOS to pre-purchase your spot on an optional excursion to explore the best of Killarney. (B)

Day 5: Killarney—Blarney—Dublin.
Kiss the Stone of Eloquence
Experience the scenic splendor of the Kerry Mountains on the way to County Cork. Stop in Blarney, famous for its “Stone of Eloquence”—promising the “Gift of Gab” for all who kiss the Blarney Stone. Share your photos with family and friends back home on the CosmosGO app! Next, travel to Dublin, Ireland’s capital. (B)

Day 6: Dublin.
In Dublin’s Fair City...
This morning, join your Tour Director for an orientation drive through statue-lined O’Connell Street, elegant Georgian squares, past St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Oscar Wilde’s Trinity College. The rest of the day is free to explore the “Fair City.” You’ll see first-hand that Dublin is as intimate as a village and as friendly as a local Irish pub. No wonder it’s been named Europe’s friendliest city. Dublin is also a book-lover’s dream, with its legacy of Yeats, Shaw, Beckett, and Joyce. Use your CosmosGO app to find local bookstores or libraries with a comfy chair to settle into with a good book. The lively and passionate music of Ireland flows onto the streets in Dublin, and there’s a good chance you’ll find the perfect pub to tip a Guinness with the locals. Why not pre-purchase your optional dinner and a visit to the Guinness Storehouse for a pint of the “black stuff.” (B)
