Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Breathtaking, lush landscapes combined with vibrant cities and historical attractions—all of this and more await you on this Scenic Ireland tour, which includes Northern Ireland. You’ll visit some of the most famous cities as well as some of the smaller towns. Along the way, you’ll learn about the Irish way of life, see breathtaking scenery, hear about Ireland’s tumultuous history, and visit some of its historical sights. If you’re interested in the Irish way of life, you’ll enjoy the special adventures Globus has arranged. At a typical Irish farm, you’ll see a farmer at work with his dogs and you’ll learn how to back bake scones, which you later enjoy with coffee. Globus has also arranged an Irish coffee demonstration in Waterford. Visit the Blasket Islands Centre, which tells the story of life on the remote Blasket Islands evacuated by the last inhabitants in 1953. Learn about life in Northern Ireland on guided tours with Local Guides in Derry and Belfast. Spectacular scenery also awaits you on this Ireland tour. See the 668-foot Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s west coast, offering breathtaking views of rugged cliffs dropping into the ocean. You’ll visit beautiful Garinish Island, home to a lush garden, and you’ll join part of the Ring of Kerry, a 100-mile drive with sparkling seascapes and mountains dotted with brightly colored farmhouses. In Northern Ireland, you’ll visit awe-inspiring Giant’s Causeway, basalt columns formed millions of years ago by volcanic eruptions. You’ll also hear about Ireland’s history and visit some of its historical and religious sites, including a guided tour of Hillsborough Castle, the official residence of the Royal Family in Northern Ireland, followed by morning coffee, and visit Belfast’s Titanic Experience where you’ll learn about the building of the Titanic and its ill-fated maiden voyage. These are just some of the many highlights offered on this scenic tour of Ireland.
