The Best of Ireland HOP

World Heritage Sites

Castles, Pubs and the Blarney Stone

June 13 – 19, 2018

6 days/5 nights

 

The Irish people offer a warm and hearty welcome to visitors. It is one of the most popular places for vacationers and, with this trip, you will visit some of the hottest, “must see” sites it has to offer.

Ireland beckons us with its’ lush gardens, beautiful flowers and vegetation in fifty shades of green! This climate allows for beautiful flowers and a wide variety of plants that can only be seen in Ireland.

Favorite aquatic wildlife commonly seen off the coast include sea turtles, sharks, seals, dolphins and whales, as well as the hundreds of species of birds that migrate through the island.

Some of the most visited sites in Ireland will be on this tour: Blarney Castle, Skellig, Cliffs of Moher, the Rock of Cashel, just to name a few! There are three World Heritage Sites on the island: The Bru na Boinne, Skellig Michael and the Giant’s Causeway.

You can take Memory-of-a-Lifetime photos as you breathe in the freshness of Ireland’s famous, old-fashioned countryside; admire many stone fences that crisscross the picturesque farmlands.

This HOP is action-packed with site-seeing, tours, history, delicious Ireland cuisine and a considerable amount of walking.

Your land package includes:

Day 1 - Visit some of the most famous sites and historic buildings in Dublin, stopping for a drink at a famous local pub, and ending the day with a nice dinner and an entertaining show.

Day 2 - Enjoy the picturesque farmlands, beautiful flower gardens, visiting several castles along the way, kissing the famous “Stone of Eloquence” at Blarney Castle. Watch a working sheepdog demonstration at one of the local farms. Ending the day with a delicious dinner.

Day 3 – Embark on the most popular scenic drive in Ireland, the Ring of Kerry; visit the Skellig Experience which explains the life of the early Christian monks on Skellig Michael, one of the World Heritage Sites, which was featured in one of the “Star Wars” movies. Lunch will be included.

Day 4 – Embark on a ferry ride across a river, enjoy the spectacular beauty of the Cliffs of Moher and end the day with a memorable dinner and entertainment at a medieval castle.

Day 5 – Explore Galway, a harbor city where Ireland’s western coastline meets the Atlantic Ocean. It’ll be like stepping back into the 18th century, with stone-clad cafes, boutiques, portions of medieval city walls still standing and the pubs offering live Irish folk music. Enjoy tea and scones on this day.

Day 6 – Depart Dublin – but first enjoy one more Irish breakfast!
