Hotel Location
6 night day by day itinerary:
 
Day 1: Depart the United States and relax on an overnight flight to Dublin.  Ireland is five hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time and most flights from New York to Dublin are around 7-8 hours so you’ll want to sleep on your flight and arrive in Dublin ready to explore!  
 
Day 2: Arrive in the vibrant capital city of Dublin!  You will pick up your rental car at the airport and take off to your first destination; the 4-star Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel.  Keep in mind that you will be driving on the opposite side of the road so proceed with caution!  Your castle hotel is only 9 miles outside of Dublin’s city center.  There are a few must-see sites including Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse, the Jameson Distillery and Temple bar.
 
Days 3 and 4: Head towards the Kilronan Castle Hotel for your next two nights.  The drive will take a little bit more than 2 hours.   You will be situated on 40 acres of beautiful scenery and have the shores of the Lough Meelagh as your backdrop.  Once you arrive in Roscommon, you can relax at the luxurious castle hotel or jump right in!  Explore the breathtaking Roscommon lawns for some of Ireland’s purest beauty.
 
Days 5 and 6: Next, take the drive over to the eclectic city of Galway!  The drive will take approximately 3 hours and you will spend two nights at the Glenlo Abbey Hotel.  While here, you'll want to make the trip over to the Cliffs of Moher for some of the most impressive views of the Galway Bay.  You will also definitely want to explore the city and visit St. Nicholas’ Collegiate Church and Galway Cathedral.
 
Day 7: Following the 5-star Glenlo Abbey you will travel to the Cabra Castle in Kingscourt for your final night in Ireland.  While here, you can check out the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth which are only about a 45-minute drive away.
 
Day 8: Today you will head back to America.  You’ll have about an hour long drive to Dublin Airport so you’ll want to plan accordingly so you are not rushed while preparing to depart Ireland.  You will be surrounded by Irish countryside and be able to enjoy a bit of privacy if you’d like, or explore the city one last time before heading back to America.
