Trip Summary

Galway City, the largest city in County Galway, is known as the `city of the tribes` and is a thriving, bohemian, cultural city on the western coast of Ireland. It is a popular seaside destination with beautiful beaches and long winding promenade and has a buzzing cosmopolitan city center. The city is a joy to explore with its labyrinthine cobbled streets, colorful shop facades and busy café/bar culture. The city is renowned for its thriving Irish theatre, arts, music and culture scene and Galway plays host to a number of internationally renowned festivals throughout the year.

With over 1000 years of history Dublin has experienced many changes, particularly in the last decade. European Union membership and increased prosperity have transformed Dublin into a multicultural city with a thriving economy, ranking it among the top tourist destinations in Europe.

2 nights in Killarney

Killarney (Cill Airne in Irish) is the gateway to the Ring of Kerry and is one of best places in Ireland to explore the outdoors.

Killarney town has charming architecture and style reminiscent of the late nineteenth century and offers the fine restaurants, gift shops and traditional pubs. About 6 miles west is the Gap of Dunloe with steep sides and deep glacial lakes, it offers spectacular scenery. The Ring of Kerry meanders around the Iveragh Peninsula with sensational views, especially at Caherdanial where you will find Ireland's only beach pub. At regular intervals you will come across restaurants, cafes and gift shops majoring in Irish crafts. Another landmark is the Ross Castle, a square medieval tower which was built by the O'Donoghues in the 15th century, situated on the shores of Lough Lein.
