Tour Itinerary

Centuries of Irish culture and heritage are revealed on this adventure across the windswept valleys of Ireland, from Dublin to the breathtaking coastal landscapes of Connemara. Kiss the Blarney Stone, witness Mother Nature's magic touch at the Cliffs of Moher and circle the Ring of Kerry. There's much to celebrate on this 'grand' 8-day journey across the Emerald Isle.

Day 1 - Arrive Dublin – Sightseeing (1 Night)
Ireland's 'fair' capital kick-starts your exhilarating encounter with the 'Emerald Isle'. After check-in, don't resist the youthful energy of Dublin and take to its streets in search of its characteristic craic. You'll join your Local Specialist later for a sightseeing tour which includes views of Dublin Castle, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Trinity College, which houses the 9th-century Book of Kells, Ireland's greatest cultural treasure. Tap into Dublin's effervescent spirit and head to Temple Bar or Grafton Street on your own this evening. There's a colourful pub on every corner, with happy locals and tourists spilling out on to the pavements. You could be one of them. Sláinte!
Accommodation: Maldron Newlands Cross

Its famous countryside glows green and gold as you venture west, every turn in the road revealing yet another magnificent view. There's no better way to admire this enchanting scenery than an Optional Experience cruise along the Shannon River, the longest river in the British Isles. Later, view the ruins of the 12th-century Boyle Abbey before arriving in Knock. It was here in 1879 that villagers witnessed an apparition of Our Lady and today pilgrims the world over visit the village's Marian Shrine.

We had a very good experience! This was our 1rst trip abroad in 15 years so glad it went well!

Love my tour director and tour bus driver

Excellent experience all the way around. I would definitely book with affordable tours again. I think the only thing I would have like to do more of is maybe see more local holes in the wall or hikes on the official extra excursions than touristy stuff, but my tour guide totally made up for that through the tour. My guide, Allie and driver Aiden were absolutely fantastic. The hotels were so so, but not a big deal. I truly had a fantastic experience and would do it again in a heartbeat.

The trip was good the travel guide was very knowledgeable and the first bus driver was awesome he drove smooth and safe.

Patricia our guide and Aiden our coach driver were both excellent. Patricia provided a wealth of information about the various area we visited and of Ireland in general. Aiden maneuvered the coach through traffic and small towns with precision while also positioning us for great photographic opportunities. The accommodations, while not 5-star, were still above standard for the cost of this level of trip.

I strongly believe that the package I received was much better than what I expected. I believed that based on the cost of the package, we would be lodging at lower quality hotels. I can honestly state that the hotels used for our tour were exceptional. The trip itself was absolutely wonderful. The Tour Director was extremely well-versed and ensured that we all enjoyed the tour. Trafalgar has done an excellent job with this tour.
