Day 1 - Welcome to Ireland
Put a little Irish spring in your step and stroll through the lyrical capital of Dublin – your springboard to an unforgettable jaunt through the treasures of Ireland. Join a local specialist this afternoon to explore the city's iconic sights. Walk the cobbled courtyard of Trinity College and enjoy priority access to see the Book of Kells. Then, enjoy a Welcome Reception to get to know your fellow travelers.
Day 2 - Journey to Waterford and Cork
Departing Dublin this morning, we journey to the peaceful monastic ruins at Glendalough, which survived repeated Viking attacks over the centuries. We'll Dive Into Culture, watching the master craftsmen of the House of Waterford Crystal as they create delicate works of art. Our final stop today is the "rebel" city of Cork, where we'll have a free evening to enjoy a little Irish craic and soak up the lively atmosphere of this university city. Our Stays With Stories accommodation is the historic Maldron Shandon Hotel. Originally Cork's first general hospital opened in 1720, the building has a colorful history that has seen it survive wars, political upheaval, fire and demolition threats before it opened its doors as a grand hotel.
Day 3 - See the Sights of Blarney and Killarney
Stop in Cobh, the charming seaside town that was the final port of call for the tragic Titanic on its fateful voyage. Join your local specialist for a walking tour to relive the timeline of the Titanic, then embark on a scenic drive to Blarney Castle, kissing its famous stone to acquire the "gift of the gab." Continue to Killarney where you'll spend the next two nights.
Day 4 - A day on the Ring of Kerry
Stop and admire Torc Waterfall during your leisurely guided walk* with a local specialist over wooden paths and lakeshore trails. The rest of our day is spent admiring the enduring beauty along Ireland's most scenic coastal drive around the Ring of Kerry. Later, join your companions for a Be My Guest dinner at Muckross Farms, where you'll Connect With Locals, stepping back in time to learn about traditional Irish farm life against the scenic backdrop of the lakes of Killarney.
*The guided walk travels over wooded paths. Walkers need to be fit and have good walking shoes or boots. Approx. 3 miles/2 hours.
Day 5 - Admire the Cliffs of Moher and on to Limerick
Delve into the era of the first transatlantic flights during a visit to the Flying Boat Museum in Foynes. At one time, it was the refueling point for Pan Am's Flying Boat, the Yankee Clipper. Dive Into Culture as you board a replica Boeing 314 to experience life as a passenger. Learn how Irish Coffee was invented to treat weary passengers whose New York flights were delayed due to bad weather before enjoying your very own cup of "Foynes Original." This afternoon, we travel to the spectacular Cliffs of Moher, which rise over 200 metres above the pounding Atlantic waves, before continuing to our hotel in Limerick.
