Activities:

  • Today meet with your coach & English speaking driver/guide & depart Ireland’s Capital traveling to County Kerry.

  • Enjoy some time for shopping at Blarney Woollen Mills. The presence of the Woollen Mills during the famine shielded Blarney from the worst effects of the famine, due to its employment of local workers. In 1976 Chris Kelleher, himself a mill worker, bought the old mill property. Within a short period of time Chris & his family transformed the mill into what is perhaps the largest quality craft shop in Ireland.

Overnight: Kerry – (B)

Day 3 Kerry - Iveragh Peninsula - Killarney National Park - Kerry

  • Leaving Killarney pass through Killorglin, famous for its Puck Fair.

Day 4 Kerry - Cliffs of Moher - Limerick

Activities:

  • Travel northwards to Tarbert & take a short boat ride across the mouth of the River Shannon to land on Clare’s shore at Killimer.
  • Travel along the coast to the Cliffs of Moher, the most majestic cliffs in Ireland which rise from the Atlantic Ocean & extend for over 7 km. On a clear day, you can admire the Aran Islands & Connemara Mountains. The cliffs reach their highest point just north of O’Brien’s Tower, built by the descendants of Brian Boru to entertain his lady friends.
  • Enjoy a tour of the Burren Region. The Burren is a strange & unique region in Europe; it is a high plateau of porous limestone situated in Northern Clare. The limestone is bare with no trees growing here or land covering the stone. But the Burren is not as deserted as we believe: the cracks allow different types of flowers to grow all year round. The rocks hide many caves like Ailwee as well as “Turloughs”, an interesting phenomenon which transforms lakes into fields during the summer.
  • Continue to Limerick.

OPTIONAL: Medieval Banquet at Bunratty Castle or similar – Supplement of CA$ 90.00 p.p. Bunratty Castle was built in the 15th century by the Earl of Thomond & stands on the banks of the Raite River in County Clare. The Earl was known for his generosity and his lavish entertainment & banquets. The entertainment today is provided by the superb Bunratty Singers & is a fitting compliment to the lively mead reception, a four-course meal & of course good wine. Guests are invited to enjoy an unforgettable evening in the splendour of this magnificent castle & take a true step back in time to Medieval Ireland.

Overnight: Limerick – (B)
