Tour Itinerary

Day 1: 1 DUBLIN ARRIVAL & MALAHIDE CASTLE Your driver will meet you at Dublin Airport. Head out to visit Malahide Castle, first built in 1185 and filled with medieval artifacts. Check into your hotel for the evening.

Day 2: 2 NATIONAL STUD & KILKENNY WALK Visit the home of equine royalty, the Irish National Stud, where you’ll see immaculately bred stallions alongside protective mares, frolicking foals and athletic yearlings. Take a walk around the grounds to see St. Fiachra’s Garden and the miniature Japanese Gardens. Later, visit Kilkenny and explore its Medieval Mile, the main thoroughfare to see historic streets and buildings. (B)

Day 3: 3 EXPLORE WATERFORD After breakfast, head further south to Waterford and witness the creation of crystal masterpieces during your visit to the House of Waterford Crystal. Then explore the rest of this old Viking settlement and learn about Waterford’s long history and some of its colorful characters. Later, head to New Ross to explore the Dunbrody Famine Ship, a replica of the vessel used during the 1840s Famine to transport emigrants to North America. Return to Kilkenny for the evening. (B)

Day 4: 4 KILKENNY TO KILLARNEY Travel south to Cobh, the last port of call of the Titanic and where many places associated with the liner still exist. Visit the Cobh Heritage Centre, which traces the history of emigration over a number of centuries from Ireland to North America. Head to Blarney Castle to kiss the famous stone or stroll through the spacious parklands to view Blarney House. Stop in and treat yourself to quality Irish goods at Blarney Woollen Mills before heading to Killarney. (B)

Day 5: 5 KILLARNEY & DINGLE PENINSULA Spend the morning at leisure in Killarney, a little town with an ideal location beside Ireland’s highest mountains. Discover the glorious Dingle Peninsula as you’re driven along the south shore to admire views of heathery mountains, sandy stretches of beach, and rocky headlands. Plenty of photo opportunities await along the way. Stop at the South Pole Inn to learn about Tom Crean, an early Irish explorer who braved the South Pole. Browse around the town of Dingle and enjoy a drink, dinner and entertainment at Foley’s Bar and Restaurant before returning to Killarney. (B)

Day 6: 6 KILLARNEY TO GALWAY Depart Killarney and head north toward Galway. Embark on an optional ferry ride across the wide River Shannon Estuary. View the Cliffs of Moher, soaring 700 feet above the churning Atlantic swells. Walk along the top of the cliffs where on a clear day you can see great views of Galway Bay and the Aran Islands. Explore Galway and its Latin Quarter, or stroll down Quay Street and stop in at one the many local pubs. (B)

Day 7: 7 SCENIC CONNEMARA Explore scenic Connemara to admire how constantly changing cloud formations give granite hills, sparkling lakes and peat bogs an added dimension. Stop at the Connemara Celtic Crystal Factory where craftsmen demonstrate fine glass cutting. Travel through the picturesque scenery of hills and lakes to visit Dan O’Hara’s Homestead. Experience traditional methods of farming, see Connemara ponies, and have a light lunch. Return to Galway for the night. (B)

Day 8: 8 GALWAY TO DUBLIN Visit Clonmacnoise, a monastic settlement founded in 545 AD and set on the banks of the River Shannon. Marvel at elaborate High Celtic crosses decorated with biblical scenes, walk around the many church ruins and two round towers. Head to nearby Athlone and stop at Sean’s Bar. This pub has a documented history going right back to 900 AD. During renovations in 1970, ancient walls and old coins dating back centuries were discovered. Overnight in Dublin. (B)

Day 9: 9 DUBLIN SIGHTSEEING Enjoy a day of sightseeing in the heart of Dublin. Use your included voucher for a visit to one of Dublin’s top attractions -- Guinness Storehouse, Teeling Distillery, EPIC Ireland or the General Post Office Museum. (B)

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Fantastic trip, more than I was expecting.

By Pamela A on Aug 11, 2019

We greatly enjoyed this tour. The itinerary covered a lot of fabulous places to see, the accommodations were excellent, and the tour guide/coach driver was very entertaining and informative. We will definitely consider CIE and Affordable Tours in booking our next vacation. Thanks!

By Joan G on Aug 10, 2019

I expected more hands on guidance in the choice of pubs, more going as a group. However I liked very much our driver/guide, Matt Nolan. His manner was very pleasant, his introductions to the areas we visited and history talks were just enough, and he was skilled driver on the narrow roads. Time on the bus was calm and quiet which seemed to suit us. He managed all the travel details professionally.

By Thomas T on Jul 17, 2019

By Ricky C on May 17, 2019

2nd trip with CIE. both were up to expectations. good drivers and guides. good selection of places to tour.

By Robert C on May 09, 2019

This was a great tour with lots of included activities. CIE was very accommodating and helpful.

By Thomas M on May 06, 2019

CIE is a very solid tour company. This was our third trip with CIE and we have toured with five other companies, all well known. CIE is not the cheapest, but the quality is excellent and there are no optional excursions. Everything is included in the price. This means they stick to popular tour options. Optional excursions offer the chance to customize the tour or to opt out of some selections. There were no CIE scheduled attractions that we would have left out. Service and organization were very sound as always.

By Glenda S on Apr 08, 2019

Our driver/ guide, Murt, made the whole experience very enjoyable. He had a great sense of humor, provided interesting stories & historical events and gave us the best amount of time each day to see all the events on our schedule.

By Raymond H on Mar 26, 2019

CIE was great. Tour Director was wonderful.

By Marilou V on Nov 11, 2018

Our tour director, Gary, was very professional, knowledgeable and very helpful. The itinerary was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable.
