This great tour explores both major cities and undiscovered gems - with air, car and hotels, including your last night at a 5-star golf & spa resort!

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.

Dublin

Founded in 841, Dublin combines the historic delights of an old city with a vibrant contemporary scene. Attractions range from landmarks and monuments dating back hundreds of years to cutting edge museums. Tour a 13th-century castle, study the work of contemporary artists, explore a Viking warship, learn about some of the world's most famous authors, or just sit back and enjoy a pint of Guinness. Bonus: Although 1.6 million people live in Dublin, the city is still small and manageable – most of the main attractions are located in or close to the city center, making it easy to navigate by foot.
 
What to see:
 
Christ Church Cathedral
 
The medieval Christ Church Cathedral is the oldest building in Dublin. Amazingly, the crypt predates the 11th-century cathedral. Catch the choral evensong if you want to really take in the atmosphere of the cathedral (which was updated in the 19th century).

The Spire of Dublin
 
One of Dublin's newest landmarks, this striking 398-foot needle is made of reflective stainless steel. The tallest work of public art in the world, the spire is an architectural marvel that starts with a base of less than 10 feet. At night, a beacon of light is sent skyward from the top.
 
Ha'penny Bridge
 
This striking cast iron pedestrian bridge crosses the River Liffey, an iconic landmark and one of the most photographed sights in Dublin. Some 27,000 people walk across the bridge on a daily basis. The name comes from the halfpenny toll levied on all users of the bridge up until 1919.
 
Dublin Castle
 
In the heart of historic Dublin is the Dublin Castle, which dates to the 13th century and was built on a site previously settled by the Vikings. The castle has served as a military fortress, a prison, treasury, courts of law and the seat of English Administration in Ireland for 700 years. Where the present garden sits was once the site of the famous Black Pool or 'Dubh Linn,’ from which the city gets its name.

Chester Beatty Library
 
Consistently winning accolades as one of Dublin's best museums, the Chester Beatty Library contains a diverse array of manuscripts, books, calligraphies, miniatures paintings and more from countries all across the world. Located within the Dublin Castle, highlights of the collection include Egyptian papyrus texts, Buddhist paintings, stunningly elaborate versions of both the Koran and Bible, Chinese dragon robes, and other artistic treasures.
