Tour Highlights

Dublin City

Dublin is the capital city and home to almost one-third of the population of the Republic of Ireland. It is by far the largest city on the island and is growing apace with some estimates suggesting that the current population of 1.3 million could grow to 2 million over the next 20 years!



Ailwee Caves

The Burren is rich in limestone caves but the Ailwee caves are the only commercially run caves, though speleologists may prefer to find their own holes(!). Discovered by a local farmer , Jack McGann, in 1944!



Connemara

Connemara is the Ireland of your dreams: lakes, mountains, pretty cottages, fast flowing streams and friendly people, a wild and wonderful place. The name Connemara was originally Conmaicnemara, or "the tribe of Cormac by the sea", given by the ancient Gaelic tribes.



Dingle

Dingle (An Daingean), the most westerly town in Europe, is the chief town of the peninsula and an excellent centre for the visitor.



Dingle Peninsula

The western end of the Dingle Peninsula, and its offshore islands, preserve a great many ancient monuments, many of which are in state care. They include some fine iron Age fortifications such ad Dunmore and Dunbeg; beehive huts (of various dates) used probably for secular purposes, including pilgrimage shelters, and forming settlements....



Blarney

Blarney just 8km (5 miles) from Cork City is set in beautiful wooded countryside, it is an ideal base to visit the many wonderful sights of Cork and Kerry. Steeped in history and magical charm, Blarney village offers the visitor a host of wonderful things to do and places to discover.
