Attractions on this Tour

Christ Church Cathedral is Dublin's oldest building and a place of pilgrimage for almost 1,000 years.
Renowned for its beauty, architecture and exquisite floor tiles, it is home to the famous 12th Century crypt, one of the oldest and largest in Britain and Ireland.
In Dublinia, take a trip back to Viking times. Experience what was life really like on-board a Viking warship. See their weaponry and the skills of being a Viking warrior. Try on Viking clothes, become a slave and stroll down a noisy street. Learn of the myths and the mysteries surrounding the Vikings and their legacy. The Built in honour of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is one of the few buildings left from medieval Dublin. The Cathedral is world famous for its choir which still performs daily during school term and in recent years the Lady Chapel, dating from 1270, has been restored to its original glory.

Dublin’s Temple Bar Imagine the best of Dublin city – pubs, galleries, restaurants and music – squeezed into a few blocks.

Introducing Temple Bar, the cobbled, cultural heart of Dublin City
A perfect arch spanning the Liffey River, the Ha’penny bridge is one of the most recognisable sights in Dublin. It was the city’s first pedestrian halfpence toll bridge and remained the only footbridge in Dublin until 1999. Guinness is synonymous with Ireland and no visit to Dublin is complete without a trip to the Guinness Storehouse, where you will discover what goes into its making, and learn about the brand history stretching over 250 years.

Bru Na Boinne contains one of the world's most important prehistoric landscapes dating from the Neolithic period, including the large Megalithic passage graves of Knowth, Newgrange and Dowth as well as some 90 additional monuments. Founded by St Ciaran in the mid-6th century, Clonmacnoise is an ancient monastic site and a top visitor attraction in Ireland. A walk amongst the peaceful stone ruins of this famous place will conjure images of the saints and scholars of Ireland’s renowned Golden Age of learning. It’s obvious why ‘Braveheart’ movie makers chose Trim as their shooting location.
One look at Trim Castle’s stony outline against a dramatic Irish sky and storybook images of valiant warriors and timid monks spring to life.

Situated on the high Burren limestone plateau, Poulnabrone Dolmen is one of Ireland’s most iconic archaeological monuments and is the second most visited location in the Burren after the Cliffs of Moher. It is the oldest dated megalithic monument in Ireland. The Burren, dominated by glaciated karst landscape, is a living place teeming with nature’s bounty: ordinary and exotic rocks, plants, animals, insects and birds. Its geology and diverse habitats are packed with startling features and surprising landforms from a thick succession of sedimentary rocks. The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland’s most treasured sites.

When visiting you'll experience both the staggering 215 meters height of the rock face, as well as the even more staggering beauty of the views from the top.

The most complete and authentic 15th century Castle in Ireland, Bunratty Castle stands on a spot which has been occupied for over 1000 years by Vikings, Normans, great Irish Earls and noble Lords and Ladies. Graciously restored in the 1960's you can experience a window on Ireland’s past. You'll discover the Fahan Beehive Huts on Dingle Peninsula, Ireland's most remarkable collection of dry stone beehive houses. The date of the Fahan clochán is uncertain, since stone huts with this design have been built from Neolithic times to the twentieth century. The Conor Pass is the highest mountain pass in Ireland, and provides the most dramatic and scenic way of entering or leaving Dingle. The views from the road are breathtaking, as the glaciated landscape of mountains and corrie lakes comes into view. (maximum 12 people).

Ross Castle sits on the edge of Killarney’s lower lake and was built in the 15th century and now part of Killarney National Park. The large rock at the entrance to the bay is known as O’Donoghue’s prison.
Ross Castle was the last stronghold in Munster to hold out against Cromwell.
Ballycarbery is the ruin of what was once a magnificent 15th century Castle of MacCarty Mor. It was subsequently held by the O'Connells, ascendants of the Liberator, until it was taken by the Cromwellians in 1652. It still retains some of its grand old features. Rising majestically from the sea, Skellig Michael towers 218 metres above sea level. On the summit of this awe-inspiring rock you will find a remarkably well preserved sixth century monastic settlement. On the smaller islands 23,000 pairs of gannet nest on every available ledge making it the second largest gannet colony in the world.

Nestled at the base of Torc Mountain, Torc Waterfall is approximately 20 meters high. The waterfall is beautiful, rugged and at its most wild after a heavy rain downpour. Immediately to the left of the waterfall are 100 or so steps which lead to magnificent viewing points of Muckross Lake and Killarney National Park. The Lady's view is probably the best known view of the sublime Killarney National Park, Ireland's first national park sprawling over 10236 hectares.
Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting visited here during the royal visit in 1861. They were so taken with the view that it was named after them.
Kinsale in County Cork is one of the most picturesque, popular and fashionable resorts of the south-west coast of Ireland.

Famous for its harbour in Kinsale, the favourable mild climate and its safe harbour make Kinsale the ideal sport for watersports

Charles Fort, a star-shaped military fortress constructed between 1677 and 1682 to protect the town and harbour of Kinsale is one of the largest military forts in the country and associated with the most momentous events in Irish history. Blarney Castle is a medieval fortress close to the city of Cork. Although the McCarthy Clan constructed Blarney Castle, different families possessed it over the centuries.
The current building is the third castle constructed on this site.
The English Market is a must-see in Cork. Inside and open year round, it is full of a very wide variety of shops and really fun to wander and look whether you buy anything or not. But the chocolates, the fruits and the local treats will all tempt you.

Today, every drop of Jameson is produced in Midleton. Enjoying the world’s best Irish whiskey at source with a tour atJameson Midleton distillery will provide you with a new appreciation of Irish whiskey, from grain to glass.
Cheers!
The Rock of Cashel is a spectacular archaeological site. A collection of medieval ecclesiastical buildings set on an outcrop of limestone in the Golden Vale.
The 12th-century round tower is the oldest surviving building on the Rock.
The magnificent Kilkenny Castle overlooks the River Nore and has guarded this important river crossing for more than 900 years. The gardens, with extensive woodland paths, rose garden and ornamental lake, create the setting for a beautiful stroll.

Glendalough is a glacial valley with an Early Medieval monastic settlement from 6th century, founded by St. Kevin. The area includes historic sites such as the remains of several churches and a cathedral, gateway and round tower. Wicklow Mountains National Park is one of six national parks in Ireland, and one of the most popular. It comprises the area of 220 square km and is home to numerous plant species and wildlife habitats. Located in the heart of Dublin City Centre, Celtic Nights is choreographed for maximum audience participation and entertainment showcasing the very best in Irish dance in a charming Irish atmosphere.
