Green All Over
Beautiful Connemara in the West of Ireland
A vibrant 10-day schedule to hit the highlights of four of Irelands cities! This energetic driving tour combines the hustle and bustle of Ireland’s main cities (Cork, Kilkenny, Dublin & Galway) with the relaxed atmosphere of West Cork and the freedom of Connemara. It also includes visits to Kinsale, a drive through the Comeragh Mountains and a visit to the ancient monastic settlement at Clonmacnoise.
A Wander in Wicklow
Gledalough Monastic Settlement
The ‘Garden County’ of Wicklow is a short drive south of Dublin. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city you’ll find peaceful solitude along the coast or in the virtually unspoiled Wicklow Hills. Visitors should not miss Glendalough, the Vale of Avoca, Powerscourt House & Gardens, Mount Usher, Russborough House…the list is endless. Johnnie Foxes pub near Eniskerry is the highest pub in Ireland and offers breathtaking views over Dublin as well as Irish entertainment evenings.
Cliffs of Moher
Time Out! Get into the southwest…Killarney, Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and The Burren. Small towns and villages, space to explore. Back roads, heritage remains and scenery to die for! The best of Ireland’s southwest and County Clare on this relaxed itinerary. Take time to explore all that’s worth exploring.
Expand our popular Southern Circle Tour by total immersion. Thirteen nights to see the west coast, with the diversity of staying in a castle, on an island and two city stops!

See Ireland’s only fjord at Killary Harbour and stay on Clare Island, home to Grainne Uaile (Grace O’Malley) the Pirate Queen of Connacht who once ruled the seas here. Climb Croagh Patrick before a well deserved pint in Matt Molloys in Westport. Return south to see the southwest as above.
