Best of Ireland



  • Day 1


    Arrival at Dublin airport, meet & greet by our representative, transfer to hotel for check in or pick up self drive car from the airport and depart for hotel for check in

    Dublin, a lively capital city that�s as intimate as a village and as friendly as your local Irish pub. With its seamless blend of classic visitor sights, excellent social scene and the natural playgrounds of Dublin Bay and the Dublin Mountains framing it on all sides, this laidback city is an adventure in itself.

    For as long as it's been around, Dublin has looked beyond Irish shores for inspiration. Once the second city of the (British) Empire, Dublin has always maintained a pretty cosmopolitan outlook and in the last three decades has conspicuously embraced diversity and multiculturalism. You'll hear languages and eat foods from all four corners of the globe, and while it used to be said that �real� Dubs had to be born within the canals like their parents and grandparents before them, these days you�re just as likely to meet a Dub whose parents were born in Warsaw, Lagos, Cairo or Beijing.

    Afternoon head out for an introductory tour of Dublin including Connell Street, St. Stephen's Green, the seat of government at Leinster House and other public buildings.

    Take a stroll through Trinity College campus in the center of the city with a student guide and view the priceless 8th century Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript of the four gospels

    Later continue to Galway

    Arty, bohemian Galway (Gaillimh) is one of Ireland's most engaging cities. Brightly painted pubs heave with live music, while restaurants and cafes offer front-row seats for observing buskers and street theatre. Remnants of the medieval town walls lie between shops selling handcrafted Claddagh rings, books and musical instruments, bridges arch over the salmon-stuffed River Corrib, and a long promenade leads to the seaside suburb of Salthill, on Galway Bay, the source of the area's famous oysters.

    While it's steeped in history, the city buzzes with a contemporary vibe, thanks in part to students, who make up around a fifth of the population. Its energy and creativity have seen it designated a European Capital of Culture for 2020.

Competition keeps standards high and visitors on all budgets can expect to find good restaurants, great pubs and comfortable accommodation.

    Mobbed in summer, Killarney is perhaps at its best in late spring and early autumn when the crowds are manageable, but the weather is still good enough to enjoy its outdoor activities.
