Ultimate Ireland Explorer | Galway to Dublin

This epic journey will take us from the wild west of Ireland, all along the breath-taking southern coast, to the dizzy heights of Northern Ireland. 

  • Experience Ireland’s savage and spectacular coastline, from traditional Connemara and the Aran Islands to the towering heights of the Cliffs of Moher, and on to the unspoilt scenery of Dingle.

    You’ll be awestruck by idyllic west Cork and spellbound by medieval Kilkenny, before travelling onwards to Ireland’s most northern tip, the Inishowen Peninsula. Getting off the well-trodden tourist trail, you’ll breathe in the fresh air of Ireland as we explore unspoilt scenery on exhilarating outdoor activities which take us to both the famed sites and the quieter idylls few tourists reach. Mingling with the locals as we travel, we’ll embrace the unique and diverse living heritage of the regions, from the native lingo of the softly spoken Gaeltachts to the cosmopolitan cities of Dublin and Belfast. From the rugged to the lush, the unspoilt to the vibrant, you’ll experience Ireland’s unique traditional culture, its famed hospitality and its magnificent scenery on this fun-packed two-week holiday.
