Proposed Itinerary

Day
1-2
Welcome to Ireland! Discover the centuries-old Dublin. Its charm is fascinating at first sight. Have a look at Hellfire Club - this place have always been shrouded in rumours of devil worship and dark satanic deeds. How do you separate fact from fiction? Later, sample the best Guinness you have ever had and enjoy panoramic views of the City - sure not to disappoint.
Day
3-4
Visit the stunning Rock of Cashel- according to local mythology, the Rock of Cashel originated in the Devil's Bit, a mountain 20 miles north of Cashel, but when St. Patrick banished Satan from a cave, this resulting in the Rock's landing in Cashel. Kiss the magical Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle – it may just give you the “gift of the gab!” Cautiously explore Belvelly Castle, a place with many curious legends – it is said that the souls of the previous owners still roam the halls. Explore Cobh city – spookily the last port of call of the Titanic on its maiden voyage in 1912, and where many of its survivors were brought ashore
Day
5
In Killarney, take a breath and just sit back and enjoy the scenery. Travel north through Moll’s Gap onwards to the spectacular Ring of Kerry – a hugely popular road route through the southwest of Ireland that encompasses some of Ireland's best scenery and heritage.
Day
6
Prepare to get some goosebumps as we visit The Abbey of the Black Hag, where the prioress, a lady of the Fitzgeralds from Shanid Castle, terrified the local population with her use of the Black Arts. It’s said the Countess of Desmond was buried alive here! Many years have passed, but her cries are still audible among the ruins of the castle. Travel back in time at Bunratty Folk Park, where you can get familiar with the everyday life of Irish Ancestors. Join the Earl of Thomond for a glorious Medieval Banquet at Bunratty Castle, and party medieval style!
Day
7-8
Next we’ll head along the West coast towards The Cliffs of Moher! These stunning cliffs have an impressive panorama of the wide Atlantic Ocean, and are visited for their beauty by more than 1 million people each year. As its Halloween, you have the chance to take an optional visit to the Galway Ghost Ship which only docks once a year – explore its spooky cabins, listen to chilling storytelling, and feel the spirit of Halloween - the scariest night of the year!
Day
9-10
We will return to the picturesque city of Dublin, where we will enjoy a night of Food Folklore & Fairies at the Brazen Head Pub - the oldest pub in Dublin. Listen to the magical tales of Irish Folklore, passed down through generations, which ancestors shared when they gathered around the fire at night. We will share them over a candlelit traditional Irish dinner and Irish live music!
