Depart for Mickey Finn’s Pub and Restaurant at the Wicklow Brewing Company, where you may have an independent lunch before proceeding to your hotel. Next is a visit to Johnstown Castle, a romantic Gothic Revival castle in an idyllic setting. Tour the castle and its beautiful gardens, and sit down for dinner in the castle’s dining room. (B, D)

Day 3: House of Waterford Crystal & Blarney Castle
Depart for Waterford, where you’ll see superb artisans create sparkling masterpieces at the House of Waterford Crystal. Next, visit Blarney Castle, where you can climb the steep, winding staircase to kiss the famous Blarney Stone for the legendary gift of the gab, or enjoy the tranquil gardens. Take some free time for an independent lunch, and then head to Killarney, where you’ll dine with your group in your hotel tonight. (B, D)

Day 4: Jaunting car ride, Ring of Kerry highlights, Kenmare & Killarney
Take a jaunting car ride through the Killarney National Park to Ross Castle for views of Lough Leane and the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks.

Next, immerse yourself in farm life, as you visit a traditional, family-owned farm in the shadow of beautiful Ben Bulben, the famed mountain that inspired William Butler Yeats, to watch skilled sheepdogs hard at work herding their flock. Return to enjoy your castle accommodations for the evening. (B)

Visit Slane Castle and learn the colorful history of this estate, home to the Coyningham family since 1703, and how it has been the setting for legendary rock concerts by world-famous artists.

The Coyninghams teamed up with a historic American whiskey family to establish the distillery in 2016, with the goal of creating the most environmentally-friendly distillery in the world. Proceed on to Newbridge House and Farm and discover this magnificent Georgian house, with its ornate plasterwork and original furnishings and art.

The trip was wonderful. This is our second CIE tour and totally enjoyed both and highly recommend.

Fantastic trip, more than I was expecting.

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!

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.

Great tour, Highly recommended!

Exceeded my expectations. Wonderful accommodations, very interactive experience with the tour stops.

Wonderful experience, we are looking forward to booking another tour.

Price very reasonable. Nice accommodations. Great tours and good amount of free time.

It was a great experience from beginning to end.

I would highly recommend CIE Tours. The tour, accommodations and food were excellent. Our driver, David, was the best!

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

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

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.

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.

CIE was great. Tour Director was wonderful.
