Ireland in the off-season is a true delight: The crowds are gone, the weather is mild, and the Irish landscape is as beautiful as ever. But best of all, your vacation dollar goes so much further! Our specially priced, custom-designed Irish Winter Escape is a great alternative "snowbird" getaway!
Start your journey after you arrive into Dublin and pick up your rental car with the reasonable and pleasant drive to Kilkenny. Here, you'll stay your first night at the fresh Aspect Hotel, adjacent to the city center but with plenty of free parking and contemporary, comfortable rooms. While in Kilkenny, don't miss a visit to fascinating Kilkenny Castle - or a wander through the pedestrian-only shopping areas where bookshops, clothing stores and friendly pubs abound.
Next travel to Limerick City for a two night stay at the convenient Absolute Hotel. You'll enjoy many comforts here - complimentary WI-FI, luxurious bedding, coffee & tea tray and so much more. And Limerick City has so much to offer - newly redeveloped King John's Castle, sites for fans of Angela's Ashes, the historic Treaty Stone and the showcase of the Hunt Museum. You'll also be only 90 minutes away from the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren...and 10 minutes from the Bunratty Folk Park.
South to Killarney next where you're sure to be charmed by this classic market town. Your base is contemporary Scotts Hotel, located right in the center of town making exploring easy. During the day, don't miss some of the best shopping in all Ireland and in the evenings, stop by for a pint and a traditional music session in one of the town's many friendly, easy-going pubs. You'll also be well-placed to discover the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Cork and Blarney, and the Gap of Dunloe - the choice where to go is all yours!
Your final nights find you back in Dublin at the North Star Hotel, a classic Dublin property newly refurbished and located in one of Dublin's most exciting neighborhoods.
Your Irish Winter Escape may be ending as you depart Dublin, but your lasting memories are sure to keep you warm!
