Day 2: National Stud
Depart Dublin and stop in Kildare to visit the Irish National Stud. Horseracing is a passion for the Irish and see some of the finest stallions and learn about breeding. After this you can walk through and explore the unique Japanese Gardens which symbolize the life from birth to death. Reach Kilkenny and check-in at the centrally-located hotel. Afternoon at leisure and enjoy the Kilkenny city on your own. Choose to visit the Kilkenny Castle, built in 1192 and constantly transformed until the 19th century. You may visit the Kilkenny Design Workshop near the castle or Kyteler’s Inn, a tavern established in 1324 and reputedly owned by a witch. (B, D)

Day 3: Blarney Castle Killarney
Stop for photos at the Rock of Cashel, a magnificent limestone outcrop high above the surrounding countryside before continuing south to Blarney. Visit Blarney Castle and climb to the ramparts to kiss the well-known “Stone of Eloquence”. Enjoy shopping at the Blarney Woollen Mills or take a break in the pub hidden between the shops!

Day 4: Ring of Kerry Tour
Explore County Kerry’s popular scenic region with Ireland’s highest mountains on one side and a varied Atlantic coastline on the other.

Day 5: Irish Coffee and Cliffs of Moher
Drive north through Listowel to Foynes to visit the Flying Boat Museum, which recalls the early days of air travel when Pan Am Clippers from the United States and Europe landed during the 1930’s and early 1940’s. Irish coffee was first created here to warm frozen travellers and you will learn how to make a perfect one and then savour it. Travel through the outskirts of Limerick and have a look around Bunratty Village, perhaps checking out Durty Nelly’s Pub. View the Cliffs of Moher that rise to heights of almost 700 feet above churning Atlantic swells. Continue through the Burren and around the shores of Galway Bay.

Embark on a short cruise of Killary Harbour, a 9-mile fjord (Mar 19 – Oct 22 departures) to enjoy views of hills where traces of pre-Famine “lazy beds” of potato ridges can be still seen. Keep an eye out for seabirds as you pass mussel and salmon farms. Rejoin your coach and drive south to the town of Clifden, known as the “Capital of the West”. You can look around the shops and pubs before heading back to Galway City for dinner and the overnight stay. (B, D)
