Your tour departs from your hotel at 2:00 PM. The Dunraven, your home for the next five nights, is a luxurious 18th-century family-run hotel, and one of the oldest in Ireland. Departures on June 2 and August 11 will stay at the luxurious Fitzgerald’s Woodlands House, located on 44 acres of beautiful grounds just outside of Adare. Adare is one of Ireland’s prettiest villages, and its history stretches back to the 12th century. Take a guided walking tour to see the village’s charming thatched cottages and ancient churches, and discover the many historic buildings that were built in the early 19th century by the Earl of Dunraven. In the evening, go to the nearby Fitzgerald’s Woodland House Hotel for a welcome drink and dinner featuring local and organic produce. (D)

Day 2: Cliffs of Moher | The Burren | Sheepdog Demonstration
Travel to the Cliffs of Moher, stunning sea cliffs that tower above churning Atlantic swells. Proceed on to the Burren, an incredible landscape of glacial-era limestone dotted with cliffs, caves, and unique flowers and wildlife. Immerse yourself in farm life as you watch highly skilled sheepdogs herd their flock; then sit down to a cup of tea and homemade scones. Dine at your hotel in Adare this evening. (B, D)

Day 3: Scenic Train to Cobh | Titanic Walking Tour | Blarney Castle
Take one of Ireland’s most scenic rail journeys from Cork and arrive in the seaport town of Cobh. Its picturesque harbor was the last glimpse of Ireland for millions of emigrants over the centuries. Take a guided walking tour to explore Cobh’s role as the last port of call for the ill-fated Titanic, followed by free time to explore the town.

Enjoy free time before departing for the South Pole Inn in the village of Annascaul.

Day 5: Ring of Kerry Highlights | Jaunting Car Ride | Killarney
Depart for a scenic drive through the highlights of the famous Ring of Kerry, taking in the rugged coastline and mountainous landscapes. Admire the scenery at Ladies View, so named because Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting were charmed by the vista on the Queen’s visit to Ireland in 1861. Visit Moriarty’s, CIE Tours’ preferred shopping partner, in the Gap of Dunloe. In Killarney, where you’ll travel via jaunting car to view the lakes and enjoy a photo opportunity at the picturesque Ross Castle before having some free time to explore the town independently. Return to Adare for a farewell dinner with your group at your hotel. (B, D)

Day 6: Lunch at Taylors Three Rock | Independent Dublin Sightseeing
In Dublin, enjoy a lunchtime private pub experience at Taylors Three Rock. A band will play traditional music just for your group – and you’ll have the opportunity to learn the art of pouring a pint of Guinness. Spend the rest of the day exploring independently on a Hop-On, Hop-Off bus tour. A voucher will admit you to your choice of one of the city’s top attractions: Guinness Storehouse, the GPO Museum, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, or Teeling Whiskey Distillery.
