Journeying through the green fields of Ireland with an experienced local guide

This is a short three day tour to Connemara, Galway, The Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Ennis, the Rock of Castle and finally Kilkenny.

On the first day you travel to the wild mountains of Connemara and finish in vibrant medieval Galway.

The following day after a walk of Galway for sightseeing and shopping we leave for the Burren region with its karst landscapes and breathtaking ocean views of the Aran Islands. You visit the legendary Cliffs of Moher in the late evening after all the tourists have left. You will dine and sleep in Ennis with its narrow streets full of character and the sounds of Irish music.

On the last day you travel to the seat of the High Kings of Munster, donated to St Patrick and see the classic Rock of Cashel. From here you will continue to the ancient capital of Ireland, Kilkenny and visit the castle and its cobbled street surrounds. You return to Dublin in the late afternoon with the memories of a lifetime.


Day One: Dublin - the Connemara region and its beautiful mountains and coastline - overnight in the medieval city of Galway, Ireland's cultural capital.

Day Two: After a morning walking tour of Galway we will depart for the rock landscapes of The Burren, and a stunning coastal drive before arriving for an evening visit to the Cliffs of Moher. This is the best time to visit as the morning mists are gone and the day tours from Dublin have departed, it is quiet and serene. We overnight in Ennis with its beautiful architecture and undiscovered ambience.

Day Three: we depart Ennis, take a quick stop at Bunratty Castle before continuing to the Rock of Cashel. This is the seat of the High Kings of Munster given to St Patrick for his church. A lunch stop here at a famous gourmet spot is taken before we continue to Kilkenny for an afternoon visit to the medieval capital of Ireland. A late afternoon departure see us return to Dublin in time for dinner!
