6 Day All Ireland Tour

A tour of the entire Island of Ireland. If you fancy seeing our Motherland’s main attractions in one week without returning to Dublin in between then this is for you.

We concentrate on the highlights of the four corners of Ireland and visit them in a detailed fashion. All the attractions of Northern Ireland including Belfast in-depth. Stay in majestic Paddys Palace in downtown's university area. Marvel at the world famous Giants Causeway. Our overnight in Historic Derry affords us the opportunity to have our thirst for Irish History quenched on our included City Walls walking tour! You'll see Bundoran in Donegal, World Surf Championships venue 2004 and the home of Enya. Trendy Galway, Irelands Party town is our base to explore the West of Ireland including the eerie Burren and the awesome Cliffs of Moher.

A beautiful aspect of this tour is our 2 night stay in lively Killarney in Irelands South West. We can relax together, take the legendary National Park Jaunting car rides, learn Irish set dancing, tour the world famous Ring of Kerry and lose ourselves in a world of breathtaking scenery, leprechauns and shamrocks on our day trip out to the loveable Gaelic speaking village of Dingle. Our final day includes kissing the Blarney stone in Cork, touring Cahir Castle, photos at the Rock of Cashel, and Counties Tipperary and Kilkenny. Possibly the most action packed 6 days the independent traveller can ever have?
