Why not visit some of its many attractions such as the Guinness Storehouse, Trinity College or the Old Jameson Distillery.

Day 2 – Kildare, Tipperary & Kerry

An Irish Institution & Pastime, GuinnessThis morning depart Dublin and travel south through the rich midland pastures of Kildare to where you can visit the Irish National Stud and Japanese Gardens just outside the town of Kildare. The Irish National Stud is home to where some of the best racehorses in the world were bred.

The Japanese Gardens are situated in the grounds of the Stud Farm and were created between 1906-1910. They are designed to capture the beauty and power of the Irish landscape in its rawest form.

Continue South passing through Cashel where you can visit one of the most important ecclesiastical sites in Ireland - The Rock of Cashel, which rises dramatically from the flat countryside of Tipperary.

This site has the best set of varied monuments in any Irish site. The rock is crowned by a group of buildings, both ecclesiastical and royal, including a round tower, a 13th century Romanesque chapel and the beautifully restored Hall of the Vicar Choral.

Continue on to Killarney located among spectacular mountains and lakes for overnight.
Overnight: Kerry area

Day 3 –Ring of Kerry

West KerryToday tour the Ring of Kerry, one of Ireland’s loveliest districts. Poets, painters, writers and musicians have all tried to convey the beauty of this area. Mountains, valleys and lakes blend into a palette of scenic splendour.

A delightful day includes a drive along the broad, dramatic coastline of the Iveragh Peninsula and through the charming villages and towns of Killorglin, Cahersiveen, Waterville and Irish-speaking Sneem. Near Killorgan you can visit the Kerry Bog Village Museum.

Here you will enjoy a step back in time to the early 18th century to recapture the way of life as it would have been at that time; peat, or turf as it is usually called in Ireland, is harvested from bogs and is still used as domestic fuel.

On your return journey to Killarney you can stop by Muckross House, a magnificent Victorian mansion and one of Ireland’s leading stately homes.
Overnight: Kerry area
