Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Stunning scenery, pretty villages, ancient sights, and exciting cities—this Britain and Ireland tour offers all of this and more. Your tour starts in Dublin, Ireland’s fun capital; ends in London, England’s exciting capital; and overnights along the way in Ennis, Killarney, Tramore, and Cardiff, the capital of Wales. Highlights of this tour include the 668-foot Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s west coast, where you’ll marvel at breathtaking views of rugged cliffs dropping into the ocean, and the Ring of Kerry, a 100-mile panoramic drive through magnificent landscapes. You’ll savor views of the sparkling seascapes, hills dotted with brightly colored farmhouses, winding lanes, and views of the Lakes of Killarney. Words cannot capture the magnificence of these natural beauties; you must witness them in person! Also enjoy drives through rich dairy farmland. Stop for photos in Adare, founded in medieval times and known today as one of Ireland’s friendliest and prettiest villages. In fact, its streets are still lined with the original thatched cottages from the 1820s. Another tour highlight is prehistoric Stonehenge. You’ve seen photos of Stonehenge—now’s your chance to stand in front of it and try to figure out how these stones weighing 4,000 pounds got there. Visit Bath, famous for its Roman baths used for socializing and bathing 2,000 years ago. Also enjoy stops in Blarney and Galway. In both Dublin and Cardiff, an orientation drive familiarizes you with the cities. In London, you’ll have time on your own to explore or to take optional excursions. From the vibrant cities to the quaint villages and gorgeous scenery, this value-minded tour through Britain and Ireland is sure to delight all of your senses!

Day 1: ARRIVE IN DUBLIN, IRELAND.
Check into your hotel. In the afternoon, there’s time to rest or discover the vibrant Irish capital, and maybe join an optional dinner evening at the Guinness Storehouse.

Day 2: DUBLIN.
Meet your Tour Director and traveling companions to start your day in the “Fair City” with an orientation drive along statue-lined O’Connell Street; elegant Georgian squares with their tall red brick townhouses, colorful doors, and wrought-iron decorated windows; Oscar Wilde’s Trinity College; and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Why not end the day with an optional Irish cabaret evening, including dinner, dance, song, and laughter? (B)

Day 3: DUBLIN–GALWAY–CLIFFS OF MOHER–ENNIS.
Head for dairy-farm country in the center of the “Emerald Isle.” Stop in Galway, a popular seaside destination and a buzzing cosmopolitan center with colorful shops and a busy café and bar culture. Then, cross the glacial-era limestone plateau of The Burren to visit the spectacular 668-foot CLIFFS OF MOHER and enjoy amazing vistas of the Clare coast. Tonight’s optional opportunity: a medieval banquet at a historic castle.
Today’s Distance: 204 mi/ 330 km (B)

Day 4: ENNIS–ADARE–RING OF KERRY–KILLARNEY.
Stop for photos in Adare, one of Ireland’s prettiest villages, beautifully set in woods along the Maigue River, with thatched cottages lining its wide main street. In County Kerry, join the road known as the RING OF KERRY for a 100-mile coastal panoramic drive. Focus your camera on sparkling seascapes, mountains dotted with brightly colored farmhouses, winding lanes bordered with subtropical vegetation, and views of the Lakes of Killarney from Ladies View. Later, discover Killarney, a town full of history, heritage, and world-class hospitality. Two special optional adventures are available: take a horse-drawn jaunting car along the National Park and, later, you might like to join an optional pub tour.
Today’s Distance: 178 mi/ 292 km (B,D)

Day 5: KILLARNEY–BLARNEY–TRAMORE.
Move on across the Kerry Mountains and through County Cork to Blarney, famous for its magical Stone of Eloquence.

Today’s Distance: 132 mi/ 212 km (B,D)

Day 6: TRAMORE–CARDIFF, WALES.
An early start for the short drive to Rosslare. In just under four hours, you cross St. George’s Channel by FERRY to South Wales. Continue through rich dairy farmland to Cardiff, where an orientation drive introduces you to the capital’s major attractions: Cardiff Castle, Cathays Park, Millennium Stadium, and the stately civic buildings. Tonight, why not join an evening of Welsh entertainment and dinner?
Today’s Distance: 242 mi/ 390 km (B)

Day 7: CARDIFF–BATH, ENGLAND–STONEHENGE–LONDON.
Your day begins with a drive across the spectacular Severn Bridge into England.

Explore the visitor center with its imaginative exhibitions, then discover the ancient landscape on foot. After arriving in London around 3:30 pm, how about celebrating the success of your tour with a night out on the town?
Today’s Distance: 174 mi/ 280 km (B)

The trip was amazing. Our tour guide, Paul, was wonderful. We would love to do another trip with him. We wish there would have been a little more time for some sights such as Blarney Stone. Once you stood in the line for 45+ minutes there was not time for much else. Overall, however, we loved it all.

By Beatrice P on Jun 17, 2018

The tour guide, Camile, and the driver John were wonderful. The knowledge of Ireland that she provided was excellent. I would book with her again. Thank you.

By Jon N on Sep 16, 2017

Guide was very good, informative. The Apollo Centrum in Amere was not very good: dirty floors, needed more light. Staff seemed new and not used to questions.

By Debra G on Sep 05, 2015

I had a wonderful time and felt I received a tremendous value for the $$ spent. The hotels were very nice, the meals were excellent. The Tour Director was very knowledgeable in the local history and was very helpful in guiding us to the most interesting sights and places along the way. The coach driver did an excellent job. Not sure how he navigated those narrow passages especially around the Ring of Kerry but he did expertly. I can't say enough about the entire experience including flying Virgin Atlantic. What a fabulous airline. Even the staff aboard was professional and courteous. Hats Off!

By Mary B on Jul 20, 2013

We enjoyed every aspect of this trip. The locations, hotels, food, clean and comfortable bus and especially our tour guide. He was excellent and very knowledgable. It was a very pleasant trip and we didn't want it to end!

By James A on May 05, 2012

Very impressed with the tour guide. His knowledge and information and the ability to pass it on the passengers was entertaining and enlightening. Always pleasant and able to answer most questions immediately or in short order. I would definitely book again. Thanks for a "grand craic". (the weather was sad a few days but the spirits were high)
