Upon your arrival in Dublin you will pick up your car and head to the lovely Citywest Hotel located just a quick 20 minute drive from the Irish capital’s city center. For the first two nights of your journey you are free to explore all that Dublin has to offer from Trinity College and the Book of Kells to the vibrant night life that will have you experiencing the warmth and charm of the people who live and work here.
On day three you will head toward the west coast of this amazing country for a two night stay at The Inn at Dromoland (formerly Clare Inn) located in County Clare. Enjoy the excitement of this region, renowned for its history and Irish culture. While in the area be sure to visit such sites as the Cliffs of Moher and The Burren. Or if you love traditional Irish Music then Clare is the place to be as it is the home of many famous Irish musicians and hosts many traditional music festivals.
On the fifth day you will make your way south to Cork and your home base for the next two nights at the Blarney Hotel Golf & Spa Resort. From here you can enjoy such local sites as Blarney Castle (where hanging upside down & kissing a stone is quite natural!) or the Cobh Heritage Centre. At night you can dine at the hotel’s award winning Inniscarra Restaurant before settling in at your wonderfully appointed room.
For your last night on the Emerald Isle you will head northwest to Laois and The Heritage Golf & Spa Resort. As you get to wind down from the whirlwind of the last 6 days and nights you will be pampered in the luxury of this 5-star resort. Be sure to have dinner in the hotel’s award winning Arlington Room restaurant to savor one last sample of fine Irish cuisine before heading home with memories to last a lifetime.
