When you see Ireland with us - you see the best of Ireland!

We all know Ireland for its green rolling hills, lively culture and deep history – but you cannot truly know Ireland until you have experienced it!
Ireland is a small island with a big heart – where the locals believe their land is the most beautiful in the world. They wouldn’t be wrong!
We chose to take our tours to Ireland, because it is a country with such a rich cultural heritage. We want to show people not just the places, but actual living traditions, and give our travellers access to the people that keep these traditions alive.
On this unique itinerary, we will show you Ireland unlike anyone else!

Inspiring Ireland: Travel to the Emerald Isle with Cobblestone Freeway

Discover Ireland on our three culturally-rich tours to the Emerald Isle. For all the details on how you can become inspired by Ireland, visit www.cobblestonefreeway.ca


Welcome to Ireland! Explore the bustling city of Dublin, steeped in centuries of history, and with its own unique charm. Try a Guinness at the famous Guinness Storehouse, hear the stories of the local people, try the traditional cuisine that has become part of the Irish heritage.
Next we head to the charming city of Belfast, a cosmopolitan city with a vast and varied history. Visit the picturesque landscapes of Northern Ireland – wonder at the mysterious Giant’s Causeway, a fascinating natural phenomenon, and Dunluce Castle, which found its fame in the TV series Game of Thrones!
Travel along the picturesque Causeway Coastal Route, and enjoy the impressive views. Spend a day at a local farm, where you can discover the history of the people of this ancient land, enjoy traditional tea and scones, and learn about peat cutting and Irish farm life!
On our way to Galway we will travel through the stunning Connemara - known for its mountains, the “Twelve Bens” peaks and the beauty of its landscapes, with their changing colours. The stunning scenery will take your breath away! The most Irish of cities, Galway wraps its arms around you like a Claddagh friendship ring. - Galway is referred to as the “Cultural Heart of Ireland”. Take a boat out to the Aran Islands. Be swept along an old-fashioned journey around the island in a pony & trap , and see beautiful ruins from early Christian times, medieval castles; breathe the clean air and soak up the rich folklore that the islanders are keen to recount.
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. Step back in time at Bunratty Folk Park, a recreation of homes and lives of local people from over a century ago. See one of the most famous landmarks on the Dingle Peninsula – Gallarus Oratory, the oldest Christian church on the territory of Ireland.
Take some time to explore Killarney at your own pace – soak up the stunning woodlands and lakes of the National Park, or the many historic houses and gardens. Enjoy the Ring of Kerry, a route through the southwest of Ireland with the best scenery and heritage around! To sum up our stay here, you’ll be treated to traditional Irish Music, at a Song & Irish Dance Show!
We will head back to lively Dublin, but on the way stop at Blarney Castle. This castle is famous for its “Kissing Stone” - here you will be able to hang upside-down over a sheer drop to kiss the stone, which is said to give the gift of eloquence! For our final night in this dynamic country, we’ll party like the Irish on Dublin’s Traditional Musical Pub Crawl!
