We’ll head along the West coast towards The Cliffs of Moher! These stunning cliffs have an impressive panorama of the wide Atlantic Ocean.

Join the Earl of Thomond for a glorious Medieval Banquet at Bunratty Castle, and party medieval style!

On our way to Killarney, we will pay a visit to Slea Head on the Dingle Peninsula. This Western most point of Europe, has unsurpassed beauty with its rugged coastlines and stunning landscape.

Admire Blarney Castle - famous for its “Kissing Stone”! Here you will be able to hang upside-down over a sheer drop to kiss this mythical stone, which is said to give the gift of eloquence! Afterwards, visit Kilkenny Castle, which stands dramatically on a strategic height and dominates the 'High Town' of Kilkenny City. Over the eight centuries of its existence, many additions and alterations have been made to the fabric of the building, making Kilkenny Castle today a complex structure of various architectural styles. End on a high note, with the Smithwicks Ale experience! Where 300 years of history combined with extraordinary brewing innovations, to create the Smithwick’s tour – an experience like no other!
Day

We will head back to lively Dublin, but on the way stop at Glendalough, also known as the "Valley of the Two Lakes". Glendalough is a remarkable place with a stunning National Park, that will still your mind, inspire your heart and fill your soul. To round off our spectacular Irish Pub Crawl Tour – join the Dublin Literary Pub Crawl! This is an award winning show that crawls from pub to pub with professional actors performing from the works of Dublin's most famous writers, Joyce, Beckett, Oscar Wilde, Brendan Behan and many more.
