Highlights of this tour include the 668-foot Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s west coast, where you’ll savor breathtaking views of these sheer cliffs dropping into the ocean, and the Ring of Kerry, a 100-mile panoramic drive through rugged and awe-inspiring landscapes. Words cannot capture the magnificence of this natural beauty; it must be witnessed in person!You’ll also have time to enjoy bustling Dublin, the “Fair City,” Adare with its pretty thatched cottages; medieval Waterford, home to the famous crystal; and Kilkenny, one of Ireland’s prettiest and liveliest towns. From the scenic beauty to the unique interactions and experiences with the down-to-earth locals, this Ireland tour is sure to delight all of your senses, and at a price you just can’t miss!

Day 1: ARRIVE IN DUBLIN, IRELAND.
Céad míle fáilte! A hundred-thousand welcomes! Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free to relax in Ireland’s capital city. This evening, meet your Tour Director and traveling companions for a welcome dinner at your hotel. (D)

Day 2: DUBLIN.
The morning’s orientation drive in the “Fair City” includes 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. The afternoon is at leisure for you to explore the city further, or you could join an optional excursion to the Guinness Storehouse and learn all about the world-famous beer: from how Guinness is made to the ancient craft of barrel-making in the cooperage. The evening ends with a sample of “The Black Stuff,” followed by dinner. (B)

Day 3: DUBLIN–GALWAY–CLIFFS OF MOHER–ENNIS.
Your day begins with a drive to Galway, a popular seaside destination and a buzzing cosmopolitan center with colorful shops and a busy café and bar culture.

We have to pay from our own pocket for several visited places and this was not informed in the tour package. For an example a visit to Blarney Castle.

By Jenna M on Nov 17, 2019

This trip was absolutely phenomenal, start to finish - our tour guide Paul and local driver, Norman, were both absolutely fantastic. They were knowledgeable and friendly! The hotels were all very comfortable with amazing staff that took great care of us. The trip itself was also great, including all the highlights of Ireland that we wanted to see in a relatively short amount of time! All in all, would highly recommend this trip! There is a decent amount of time in the bus traveling between cities, but again, we got to see many cities we otherwise wouldn't have visited that way!

By Frederic S on Mar 27, 2019

It was a bare bones tour without any tours or guides. All sightseeing was drive bye Each sight or city we were on our own. An hour here and an hour there All in all it was simply a bus drive around Ireland. Never again

By Mary M on Mar 27, 2019

Was a wonderful tour. Tour director was so very good and had lots of knowledge of the area we were touring. Hotels were clean and in good locations. We have already booked a tour with you for Greece in the fall.

By Ronald D on Mar 27, 2019

This was a wonderful trip. We were able to join up with a couple that we had met on another Globus tour last spring and enjoy this together. We are planning another rip next spring with Affordable Tours and Globus. Ireland was everything that we were hoping that it would be and booking with Globus we knew that we would have the best of accommodations in both motor coach and hotels. As far as we are concerned Globus is the best in offering tour. Thanks again.

By William W on Mar 22, 2019

This tour met our expectations and was everything we anticipated. This is an  affordable tour and everything worked on schedule. Both the tour director and the bus driver were excellent. Hotels were good and the people of Ireland are wonderfully friendly. We just prefer a more upscale tour but we knew what we were getting and it was well done.

By Cynthia Y on Mar 06, 2019

We have never been on an escorted tour and were a bit apprehensive. No longer! We had an amazing trip, fabulous guide (Carmel) and great accomodations and excursions. We couldn't have been happier with our Globus Irish Escape tour (March 2019).

By David C on Feb 23, 2019

From top to bottom, we were totally satisfied with the arrangements, tour operator, flights & accommodations. It was a great vacation & lots of fun. Thank you.

By Rebecca S on Feb 23, 2019

Very nice tour highlighting Irish culture throughout the various areas of the country.

By Nancy S on Feb 10, 2019

One hotel was dirty. We were too rushed and not a lot of time to eat and shop. Too much time on bus. WiFi not good on bus and could not use toilet.

By Gerald W on Nov 18, 2018

Very professional great to deal with.

By Mona T on Feb 17, 2018

The Irish Escape by Globus was wonderful. The hotel accommodations and the included meals were excellent. The tour director was very knowledgeable about the each region we travel to. She also had a fun sense of humor and made the bus rides fun.

By Richard C on Jan 21, 2018

A busy schedule but great tour guide and driver made it grand.

By Karen H on Jan 21, 2018

I would highly recommend Globus. The tour director and driver were excellent and my 80 year old mother was able to enjoy Ireland with me and had a wonderful time thanks to their care and knowledge. I have never taken an escorted tour before but would be very happy to take another and probably will.

By Kathleen M on Dec 10, 2017

Our tour director and driver were fantastic. Both went above and beyond. Our driver was seriously the best driver ever. The hotels were unbelievably, so beautiful. We saw and learned so much about Ireland. Great trip. I strongly recommend to everyone.
