Starting and ending in Dublin, we first visit The Glendalough Valley in The Wicklow Mountains National Park. An area abundant in natural scenic beauty, perfect for honing your inner photographer. Atop these peaks sits one of Ireland’s oldest traditional and most famous establishments, Johnnie Fox’s Pub a place which lays claim to the title of the highest pub in the country and is a must see for anyone in the area. What follows is a night in Kilkenny, ‘The Marble City’ and a place of large medieval significance. Waking on day two then The Rock Of Cashel is visited en route to Cork where you will also take in Blarney Castle before hunkering down for a your second night in this new city. Subsequently, your third day will remain in the surrounding area as you explore Cork in a more in-depth manner. Venturing to the West of the county you will see Drumbeg Stone Circle, Timoleague Abbey, Skibbereen and Kinsale before returning to the previous night’s lodgings. Moving to the fourth day you will embark West on a journey which will span four separate days tracing your way up the country. First touring The Ring of Kerry over the Cork and Kerry Mountains taking in the most noted sights and even a view ‘fit for a lady’, then spending day five appreciating The Dingle Peninsula, home to Fungi The Dolphin and the famed Skellig Michael. Travelling further up the rugged West coast from here, you will meet The Cliffs of Moher, with their imposing and beautiful cliff faces holding you high above the vast expanse of blue sea below, the situation practically implores photo-taking. Day seven consists of the exploration of the beautiful Connemara and Cong, the night preceding and following which will be spent in Galway. Swiftly onto day eight then, you will be whisked into the North, staying a night in Donegal after taking in a graveyard at Drumcliffe, the burial ground of W.B. Yeats and home to the oldest Celtic cross in Ireland as well as seeing yet more cliffs, these ones entitled Slieve League and amounting to an astonishing three times the height of The Cliffs Of Moher! Staying in the North for the ninth day then en route from Donegal to yet another city, Belfast, you may have the opportunity to stop in Derry for a coffee (this being a walled and historic city in and of itself) and will experience the Antrim Coastline, Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-A-Reed Rope Bridge, hearing the intriguing stories behind each of these. Finally, on the tenth day, after a night in Belfast and on the way to your last drop-off back in Dublin, you will squeeze in some time at The Titanic Experience where you will learn all about this well-known ship and the tragedy that was her maiden voyage, before taking a black taxi tour around this city steeped in history. These two final touches should leave you in high spirits and register you a fountain of knowledge yourself before you say your final goodbyes to your driver guide and go on to your next adventure with your group, whatever that may be…
