ITINERARY


Depart Dublin (09:00)


We collect from a selection of Dublin’s leading hotels (please see booking calendar for details) and depart Dublin @ 09:00.


You’ll enjoy the comfort and style of a luxury Mercedes- Benz touring vehicle, with a maximum of 25 passengers on this small group tour, led by one of our best guides.


The journey takes us through the picture- postcard midlands of Ireland, the “Golden Vale” agricultural plains of counties Tipperary and Cork. This is arguably the most fertile agricultural valley in all of Europe, and home to some of Ireland’s best beef and dairy farms and the world's largest breeding stud of thoroughbred racehorses. As the tour passes fields with grazing stallions you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the Galtee Mountains.


Rock of Cashel (11:15 - 12:00 approx.)


Our first stop will be the world famous Rock of Cashel in Co. Tipperary. One of Ireland's most evocative sites, you can stroll in the footsteps of St. Patrick flanked by ruins, Celtic crosses and round towers. Feel the soul of Ireland. The Rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the Kings of Munster until they donated the complex to the Catholic Church almost 1,000 years ago for use as a cathedral. One of the best examples of medieval architecture anywhere in Europe. Your entrance fee (EUR 8.00) is included in the price of this tour.

Blarney Castle (13:30 - 16:15 approx.)


Famed in song and story, the Irish are famous for the “Blarney”. Kiss the Blarney Stone and you too will receive this “gift of the gab” - 7 years of eloquent speech. Situated on the battlements of Blarney Castle you will have to bend over backwards to kiss the stone! You have time to enjoy a stroll around the fabulous gardens of the Blarney Estate or maybe enjoy the beautiful Lake Walk. We also visit the Witches Cave in the castle grounds before having plenty of time to indulge in the tax free shopping haven of the Blarney Woollen Mills and craft shop. Your entrance fee (EUR 18.00) is included in the price of this tour.

Return to Dublin (19:45 approx.)


Tour ends in Dublin approx. 19:45 in time for refreshments and evening dinner reservations.
