From Ireland's Ancient East to the Wild Atlantic Way

This Ireland tour—traveling from its east coast to its west coast—features Ireland’s most popular cities, small towns, and scenic highlights. Your tour starts in Dublin, ends in Limerick, and overnights also in Waterford, Kinsale, and Killarney. Scenic highlights include the 668-foot Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s west coast, where you’ll savor the breathtaking views of these rugged cliffs dropping into the ocean, and part of the Ring of Kerry, a panoramic drive through rugged and magnificent landscapes. Also take a private boat to Garinish Island, renowned for its gardens and seal colonies.

Visit some of Ireland’s charming small towns, including Adare, developed in medieval times and with the original thatched cottages built in the 1820s still lining the streets; Kilkenny, where you’ll enjoy a guided tour of Smithwick’s Experience to learn about Ireland’s oldest beer brand; New Ross, where you’ll visit the Dunbrody Famine Ship to learn about the famine emigration in the 1840s; Kinsale, a historic port and picturesque fishing town where you’ll take a heritage town walk; Youghal, a walled seaport town preserved from the 13th century; and the charming village of Blarney.

Also enjoy guided tours of the House of Waterford Crystal, where you’ll see the highly skilled artisans at work in the production of this famous crystal, and the Irish National Stud in Kildare, home to thoroughbred champions. Plus, throughout this Ireland tour, Globus has included some unique experiences. You’ll ride on the Waterford & Suir Valley Railway, a heritage narrow-gauge train that runs along the Suir River through rolling farmlands and woodland gardens. Also enjoy a traditional farmhouse dinner at Rathbaun Farm, where you’ll learn to make scones and hear about sheep shearing from the farmer.

These are just some of the many highlights of this tour through Ireland. It’s a wonderful vacation!
