Overview
Ireland’s small size makes it possible to see much of the country on a multi-day tour, and doing so with a guide allows you to maximize your time on an itinerary with both big-name attractions and traditional villages. See Belfast and the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland; marvel at natural wonders such as The Burren, Inch Beach, and the Cliffs of Moher; and visit towns including Galway, Dingle, and Cork.
What to Expect

Day 1: Dublin - Belfast

Your tour begins in central Dublin where you board your air-conditioned coach and begin your scenic journey north. Visit Monasterboice to explore the ruins of an early Christian monastic settlement, and then cross into Northern Ireland.

In Belfast, begin a city sightseeing tour, passing sights such as City Hall, Queen's University, Albert's Clock, and the Botanic Gardens, or opt for a Black Taxi tour (optional; own expense) to see the Peace Wall and Belfast murals, and learn more about the city’s turbulent political history.

Day 2: Belfast - Letterkenny

See Northern Ireland highlights, starting with Dark Hedges, a memorable Game of Thrones filming locations where your guide shares stories about the filming of the hit show. Continue to the rugged north coast’s star attraction, the Giant’s Causeway, which is Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site. You also visit nearby Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, which links the mainland to Carrick-a-Rede Island and passes over the Atlantic Ocean.

In the afternoon, visit Derry (Londonderry) to learn its history, before crossing the border into County Donegal to Letterkenny.

Day 3: Letterkenny - Galway

Begin with a drive through Donegal and Sligo, the former stomping ground of poet W.B. Yeats—stop to visit his grave in Drumcliff Abbey. Continue south to Galway, where you have the afternoon to walk Salthill Promenade, enjoy views of Galway Bay, and explore the bars and restaurants of the atmospheric Latin Quarter.

Day 4: Galway-Killarney

Drive part of the rugged Wild Atlantic Way, ducking inland to explore the otherworldly landscapes of the Burren before continuing to the Cliffs of Moher. After marveling at the sea cliffs and enjoying views of Aran Islands, make a stop in Adare village, famed for its traditional thatched cottages. Finally, continue to Killarney, where you spend the night.

Day 5: Killarney-Dingle

Explore the Dingle Peninsula, where highlights include Inch Beach, one of the longest beaches in Ireland, and Slea Head, the westernmost point of Europe. Keep an eye out for Fungi, Dingle’s resident dolphin, and enjoy expansive views along the coast, including an island known as the Sleeping Giant, Blasket Islands, and the ancient beehive huts. Return to Dingle in the afternoon and enjoy free time to shop for souvenirs and have dinner (own expense) at a typical Irish pub.

Day 6: Dingle-Dublin

See some of the sights along the famous Ring of Kerry tour route, as you pass through the Cork and Kerry Mountains. Make a stop at Blarney Castle, where you can join in the centuries-old tradition of kissing the Blarney Stone—said to bestow the “gift of the gab.” On the return to Dublin, pass through Wicklow Mountains, before ending your tour at the original departure point.
