Trip Summary

  • Limerick

    Limerick is the third-largest city in the Republic of Ireland. The history of beautiful Limerick, on the Shannon River, goes back over a millennium. The Vikings and the Old English inhabited a walled city to the north of the current city center, while the native Irish lived to the south across the Abbey River, a tributary of the Shannon. The end of the Williamite Wars were fought in Limerick, and you can learn more about the war`s impacts at the Limerick City Museum and the 13th-century King John's Castle. It wasn't until the eighteenth century when Edmund Sexton Pery designed the current city center, a living showcase of Georgian architecture. Limerick is a resurgent city ready to welcome tourists with a smile. Visit King John's Castle, St. Mary's Cathedral, The Hunt Museum, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Limerick City Museum, Frank McCourt Museum, The Treaty Stone, Newtown Pery, King`s Island, Limerick Milk Market, People`s Park and so much more!

  • County Cork

    County Cork is Ireland`s largest county in terms of area and contains the island`s third largest city, Cork City. Much of County Cork is dominated by the Atlantic Ocean, its magnificent coastline scooped and fretted into great bays and secret coves, strewn with rocky headlands and long soft golden sands. It has lively small cities, quiet country villages, rocky hills, picturesque beaches, and long stretches of flat, green farmland. Not to be missed is Blarney Castle with its famous Blarney Stone which is kissed by many visitors each year, and tradition says that those who kiss the stone will receive the gift eloquence. Also of interest is Cobh, the port from which many Irish emigrants set sail for Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa or the USA.

    Visit The Old Midleton Distillery, Blarney Castle, Cobh, the Beamish and Crawford Brewery, Fota Wildlife Park, and Bantry House and Gardens.

  • County Kerry

    Offering softly rolling green fields, long, sweeping seascapes, and vibrant little towns, the `Kingdom` has a maze of blissfully quiet country lanes each of which has a story to tell - Around every corner, a piece of history unfolds amidst the most beautiful of scenery. There are tiny fishing villages, early Christian ruins, and Ireland`s highest mountain. Located in the extreme southwest of Ireland, offers outstanding and magnificent sceneries such as the Ring of Kerry and a very well-preserved eighteenth-century century port in Tralee, its capital town.

    Visit the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House and Gardens, the Blasket Centre, Kerry Bog Village Museum, Killarney National Park, the Skellig Islands, and Ardfert Cathedral.

  • County Clare

    Clare is the County of seascapes and landscapes, offering two of Ireland`s natural attractions: The Burren, with its great mystery and beauty due to its geology, flora, caves, archaeology and history and the dramatic stretch of coastline, including the spectacular Cliffs of Moher and quaint seaside towns such as Lahinch and Kilkee. Also worth visiting are charming villages like Killaloe, a lovely village at the foot of the Slieve Bernagh Hills, and home to a picturesque inland marina. Killaloe Cathedral dates from the 13th century. And for Irish music, be sure to visit town of Doolin - famed for its tradition of Irish music: It features pubs where they host musicians of high standard playing frequently both during the day and the evening. This is also an excellent place for those fascinated by the country`s ancient history, as it`s littered with historic and prehistoric sites, from the Poulnabrone Dolmen to Bunratty Castle.

    Explore the Cliffs of Moher, the Aillwee Cave, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, Craggaunowen, Clare Archaeology Centre - Dysert O'Dea Castle, and Clare Heritage and Genealogical Centre.
