Trip Summary
1 nights in Limerick

Limerick is the third-largest city in the Republic of Ireland. The history of beautiful Limerick, on the Shannon River, goes back over a millennium. The Vikings and the Old English inhabited a walled city to the north of the current city center, while the native Irish lived to the south across the Abbey River, a tributary of the Shannon. The end of the Williamite Wars were fought in Limerick, and you can learn more about the war`s impacts at the Limerick City Museum and the 13th-century King John`s Castle. It wasn`t until the eighteenth century when Edmund Sexton Pery designed the current city center, a living showcase of Georgian architecture. Limerick is a resurgent city ready to welcome tourists with a smile.

Recommended Stay: At least 2 nights

King John`s Castle, St. Mary`s Cathedral, The Hunt Museum, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Limerick City Museum, Frank McCourt Museum, The Treaty Stone, Newtown Pery, King`s Island, Limerick Milk Market, People`s Park and so much more!

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. Eyre Square and the imposing Galway Cathedral are but two of Galway`s best-known sights.

2 nights in Dublin

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. An hour walk from the top of Grafton Street, across the Liffey, up O'Connell Street, and farther into north Dublin is a walk through time and, also a glimpse of some of the pieces that must eventually fit together.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Trinity College and the Book of Kells, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin Castle, the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery, Temple Bar, St. Stephen's Green and the National Museums and so much more!

The storied history of Waterford started in 914 CE, making Waterford older than most European capitals! Not only can people learn a lot about history walking down these winding, hilly streets, they can take a special sovenir home: authentic Waterford crystal!


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Reginald`s Tower, Bishop`s Palace, House of Waterford Crystal, Clock Tower on the Quays, Beach Tower, Double Tower, Treasures of Waterford Museums, Mount Congreve, and so much more!



2 nights in County Cork

County Cork is Ireland`s largest county in terms of area and contains the island`s third largest city, Cork City. Much of County Cork is dominated by the Atlantic Ocean, its magnificent coastline scooped and fretted into great bays and secret coves, strewn with rocky headlands and long soft golden sands. It has lively small cities, quiet country villages, rocky hills, picturesque beaches, and long stretches of flat, green farmland. Not to be missed is Blarney Castle with its famous Blarney Stone which is kissed by many visitors each year, and tradition says that those who kiss the stone will receive the gift eloquence. Also of interest is Cobh, the port from which many Irish emigrants set sail for Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa or the USA.

MUST SEE`S IN COUNTY CORK: The Old Midleton Distillery, Blarney Castle, Cobh, the Beamish and Crawford Brewery, Fota Wildlife Park, and Bantry House and Gardens.



2 nights in County Kerry

Offering softly rolling green fields, long, sweeping seascapes, and vibrant little towns, the `Kingdom` has a maze of blissfully quiet country lanes each of which has a story to tell - Around every corner, a piece of history unfolds amidst the most beautiful of scenery. There are tiny fishing villages, early Christian ruins, and Ireland`s highest mountain. Located in the extreme southwest of Ireland, offers outstanding and magnificent sceneries such as the Ring of Kerry and a very well-preserved eighteenth-century century port in Tralee, its capital town.

MUST SEE`S IN COUNTY KERRY: Ring of Kerry, Muckross House and Gardens, the Blasket Centre, Kerry Bog Village Museum, Killarney National Park, the Skellig Islands, and Ardfert Cathedral.
