Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Board 'The Isle of Innisfree', across the shimmering Lough Corrib to elegant Ashford Castle, once home to the famous Guinness family and the highlight of your iconic journey.

Day 1 - Arrive Dublin (2 Nights)
The Emerald Isle puts its best foot forward in this iconic exploration of its soul-stirring landscapes. We kick off our epic journey along the walled gardens and rambling walks of Powerscourt Gardens - its sweeping terraces, ornamental lakes and over 200 varieties of trees and shrubs ensure it befits its status as one of the most beautiful gardens in Ireland. Enjoy a Welcome Reception this evening to get to know your fellow travellers.
Accommodation: Clayton Ballsbridge
Meals: Welcome Reception

Day 2 - Dublin Sightseeing and Free Time
Lyrics and legends await this morning as we join a 'Local Specialist' on a city tour to visit St. Patrick's Cathedral, where Jonathan Swift was once installed as Dean. We admire the colourful doorways in the stately Georgian Squares and stroll along the cobbled courtyard of Trinity College and enjoy priority access to see the Book of Kells. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure to soak up the charisma of this city. Wander along Grafton Street and see its lively performers, stop for a pint of the 'Black Stuff' in Temple Bar or relax in St. Stephen's Green.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Dublin – Co. Kilkenny – Cork
We leave the hospitality of Dublin behind for County Kilkenny where we delve into the history of a 'lost' medieval town - Newtown Jerpoint. Take a step back in time to the 12th century and wander through its remains which are said to be the final resting place of St. Nicholas. Later, you'll join the O'Connells at their home, Belmore House. Embrace the peaceful rural setting - the perfect backdrop to 'Connect With Locals' over a 'Be My Guest' lunch. Inspired by Irish food and the warmth of our hosts, we continue south to the lively city of Cork, enjoying a free evening to discover its sights, sounds and flavours.
Accommodation: Maldron Shandon
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 4 - Cork – Blarney – Killarney (2 Nights)
Head to Blarney in pursuit of the 'gift of the gab'. Kiss the fabled Stone then head west to the lakeside setting of Killarney, our springboard to the enduring beauty of the Ring of Kerry.
Accommodation: Killarney Towers
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Ring of Kerry Excursion
Spend a leisurely morning exploring Killarney or join a 'Local Specialist' for a scenic guided walk at Torc Waterfall, strolling over wooden paths and lakeshore trails.

Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Killarney – Cliffs of Moher – Galway (2 Nights)
Our up-close encounter with Ireland's ravishing beauty not yet at its end, we journey north stopping for a walk along the iconic Cliffs of Moher, an extraordinary feature of the famous Wild Atlantic Way. Admire the dramatic cliffs that rise 200 metres above the pounding Atlantic and survey the endless ocean views. We continue to Galway for a two-night stay.
Accommodation: Maldron Sandy Road

'Dive Into Culture' at the Connemara Marble Factory, watching master craftsmen carve Connemara marble. Then enjoy an orientation tour of Galway with plenty of free time afterwards to explore this vibrant city on your own.

Day 8 - Galway – Connemara – Ashford Castle
A rugged realm of mountains, lakes, rivers and villages provides a stunning backdrop for our leisurely drive through Connemara - an unspoilt region of Western Ireland that was immortalised in John Wayne's 'The Quiet Man'. We'll visit Kylemore Abbey and ramble through its exquisite Victorian walled garden. Later, board 'The Isle of Innisfree' for an exclusive cruise on shimmering Lough Corrib. Captain Patrick, Ashford Castle's 'Local Specialist', will share his local knowledge as you glide through its peaceful waters. Upon disembarking, a lone piper will escort you over the drawbridge to Ashford Castle, one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories', where tonight you will dine as lords and ladies at an elegant royal dining experience (gentlemen are requested to wear a jacket).

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.

We traveled with Carol as our Branden Tour guide and she was outstanding. Her knowledge of Ireland and its history made the couple of long travel days interesting, her hidden gems were very special and she made sure that everyone one the tour was made to feel equally important. The accomadations throughout were exceptional except at one place (forgot the hotel but Carol could tell you) where renovations were being done. That being known, those two nights should have been rebooked at a different hotel rather than to have our group eating in a make shift dining room and bar set up in a conference room! Also, several dinners were same choice... beef stew, fish or snicker & gravy dish, all with mashed potatoes. Some variety would have been welcomed.
