Starting at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park we'll be introduced to the legendary hospitality and history of Ireland, with our first night spent in Limerick. Next we'll travel South to Bantry whose history streches back to Neolithic times. Extremely beautiful scenery to enjoy as we explore around the Beara Peninsula, with views of its dramatic intricate coast and mountains around every turn. A step back in time to see Charles Fort, the best preserved and most extensive star-shaped fort in Ireland dating back to the 17th Century. We couldn't leave Ireland without sampling some Irish Whiskey and a visit to Blarney Castle with the opportunity to kiss the Blarney stone and as legend has it, receive the 'gift of the gab'. The Dunbrody Famine Ship provides us with a world class interpretation of the famine emigrant experience and an insight into the bravery and fortitude of the Irish people. Before heading up to County Wicklow, known as 'The Garden of Ireland' we will witness Ireland's team of skilled workers and their world-renowned crystal at Waterford Crystal.
Our final nights will be spent in and around the captivating capital city of Dublin, with a visit to the Guinness Storehouse and Malahide Castle & Gardens being just a couple of the highlights.
