Wed., June 26 – DUBLIN / KILKENNY
We arrive in Dublin this morning where we are met by our Driver/Guide, who will accompany us as we explore Ireland. We’ll stop for a traditional Irish breakfast at The Coachman’s Inn, where you will have the opportunity to sample your first proper pint of Guinness in Ireland. After breakfast we’ll drive through the wonderful scenery on our way to Glendalough. “The glen of the two lakes” is a truly spellbinding place; an ancient monastic settlement and two clear water lakes beneath the sheer cliffs of a deep valley. The site has been a center for pilgrims and visitors since its foundation by St. Kevin in the 6th century. Afterward, we’ll make our way across the Wicklow Mountains, where much of “Braveheart” was filmed, on our way to Kilkenny, one of Ireland’s loveliest medieval cities, where our hotel is Hotel Kilkenny. An introduction to Kilkenny will take us past the Dominican Black Abbey and St. Canice’s hilltop cathedral before reaching Parliament Street. We’ll then travel along High Street, before stopping to visit magnificently restored Kilkenny Castle. Kilkenny is famous for many charming pubs; The Marble City Bar, Lanigan’s and Matt the Miller – just to mention a few – and it’s Charlie’s intention to sink a pint in most of them. Kilkenny is also home to Smithwick’s Brewery, brewing Smithwick’s Ale since 1710. Pub of the Day…Kytlers Inn. (B,D)

This morning we travel through Ireland’s Golden Vale to visit the Rock of Cashel, a symbol of royal power for more than a millennium. Leaving Cashel, we’ll travel to Blarney for a visit to fabled Blarney Castle. Here you’ll have an opportunity to climb the steps of the fortress and kiss the world-famous Blarney Stone to gain the gift of eloquence, wit and wisdom. Just a stone’s throw away we’ll also visit the Blarney Woolen Mills, the largest emporium of Irish crafts in the country where we can browse the finely woven Irish woolen products. We’ll then travel on to Killarney in the scenic southwest, where we’ll find some of the most picturesque views in all of Ireland. We’ll enjoy an introductory tour of Killarney before checking in at our hotel, Scotts Hotel. Pub of the Day…The Danny Mann. (B,D)

Fri., June 28 – KILLARNEY
Today we take a leisurely excursion around the magnificent Ring of Kerry. Here, mountains, valleys, lakes and sea blend into a landscape that is breathtaking beyond words. We’ll drive through beautiful villages such as Sneem, Waterville, Caher- civeen and Killorglin as we make our way back to Killarney via Queen Victoria’s Ladies View of Killarney’s Lakes. The remainder of the day is free to take a walk around Killarney, or perhaps a Jaunting Car to visit Ross Castle or the Cathedral. Pub of the Day…The Laurels. (B)

We depart Killarney this morning and travel north to visit the village of Adare. Billed as Ireland’s prettiest village, we’ll have an opportunity to stroll along the town’s Main Street of thatched houses, colorfully painted storefronts and beautiful gardens. From Adare we drive to nearby Bunratty, and tonight we’ll join the Earl of Thomond for a glorious banquet at the majestic 15th century Bunratty Castle. Our hotel for the next two nights, Bunratty Castle Hotel, is just up the hill from our Pub of the Day…Durty Nelly’s. (B,D)

Sun., June 30 – BUNRATTY
This morning we make our way to the Cliffs of Moher to enjoy spectacular views. Even when shrouded in mist or buffeted by gales, the Cliffs of Moher are a breath-taking sight as they rise to a height of 650 feet from out of the Atlantic. Afterwards we’ll stop at Gus O’Connor’s Pub in Doolin where you have the opportunity to enjoy the best fish and chips in the world. As we make our way back to Bunratty, we’ll stop at a family farm where we’ll see the family carry out everyday chores, including sheep shearing, and watch the sheep dog maneuver the flock. Pub of the Day…The Creamery Bar. (B)

Mon., July 1 – BUNRATTY / DUBLIN
This morning we depart Bunratty and make our way ‘round Galway Bay to visit the city of Galway. Following a panoramic tour of the city, we’ll have a ramble along the pedestrian precinct of Shop Street and Quay Street. After our visit, we’ll travel into the heart of Ireland to Kilbeggan Distillery, established in 1757, and the oldest licensed distillery in the world. We will see how the whiskey is produced using modern equipment in the old buildings and enjoy a sample of the finished product. Then we’ll continue across the pastures of Ireland to the capital city of Dublin. On arrival in the capital city, we’ll enjoy a panoramic tour before arriving at our hotel, Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel. Pub of the Day…Finnegan’s of Dalkey. (B)

Tues., July 2 – DUBLIN
Our day will begin with an introductory tour of this famous city on the River Liffey. We’ll visit Trinity College’s Old Library to see the Book of Kells, the most richly decorated of Ireland’s medieval illuminated manuscripts. The remainder of the day is at leisure in Dublin. Be sure to stroll pedestrian Grafton Street where you’ll find energetic street musicians and theater artists, plenty of shopping, and some of Ireland’s most iconic pubs. Pub of the Day…Temple Bar. Tonight we’ll end our vacation in style with an evening farewell dinner and show at The Irish House Party. (B,D)

This morning we say goodbye to the Emerald Isle and journey to Dublin Airport for our flight home. (I)
