Day 01: Dublin
Greetings from Dublin. Your airport shuttle service departs for your accommodation at 08:30, 11:00, and 13:00 on your arrival at Dublin Airport. In order to get a better sense of Dublin's history and architecture, meet your Travel Director at 14:30 for an introductory trip.
See the Custom House, the Guinness Storehouse, the Christchurch Cathedral, and the St. Patrick's Cathedral as you cruise along the Liffey River. See the Book of Kells and Trinity College's cobblestone courtyards with a Local Expert who will give their views on daily living and the rich history of the institution. Upon returning to your hotel, join your Travel Director for a warm and welcoming Welcome Food with beverages and the chance to socialize and get to know one other over a nice evening of dinner and wine.
Day 02: Cashel and Blarney, heading for Killarney
The Curragh Racecourse and lush meadows, where many of Ireland's best racehorses are reared, may be seen as you leave Dublin. With Insight Choice, you can discover Blarney. To secure a lifetime of eloquence, choose to visit Blarney Castle and kiss the enchanted stone. Instead, have a tour of Blarney Gardens with a senior gardener. If you'd want a 'pint of porter,' go to Killarney.
Day 03: Ring of Kerry Experience Relaxed Start
The Ring of Kerry, which encircles the picturesque Iveragh Peninsula, is a must-see in the morning, as are the stunning mountain and sea vistas.
Day 4: The Cliffs of Moher, then Galway.
Enter County Clare after taking a ferry over the Shannon Estuary. Explore the Cliffs of Moher, which rise 700 feet above the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, by stopping at the Exhibition Centre. For the next leg of your journey, you'll pass the Burren, a desolate and bleak area punctuated by intriguing limestone folds. Embark on a tour of Galway's magnificent cathedral and the city's colorful history. Take in the views from your hotel, which is perched on the cliffs of Galway Bay and overlooks the bay.
Day 5: Captivating Connemara
Explore the Connemara National Park and discover a magical world of rivers, lakes, and quiet hillsides.
With Insight Choice, you can discover Connemara. Take a tour of the Kylemore Abbey, a Neo-Gothic masterpiece.
Day 6: Majestic Ashford Castle
County Galway and County Mayo meet at the confluence of Lough Corrib and Cong, a beautiful spot. 'The Quiet Man' was shot there in 1952, and many of the town's landmarks may be familiar to you. Experience this traditional Irish town on your own terms, stopping to check out the statues of John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara and Cong Abbey's ruined remains. After there, you just have to drive a little distance to reach Ashford Castle, the high point of your journey. A lone piper greets you as you cross the drawbridge..

In the morning, why not take a walk around the estate after a leisurely breakfast? After a short drive through the middle of the country, we arrive in Dublin, where the rest of the day is yours to do as you like.
Day 08: Departure
After a hearty breakfast, you'll be on your way home. Dublin Airport's departure shuttles arrive at 07:00, which is when the airport is open for business.
