About this trip

If guided hikes on windswept coastlines followed by pints of guiness sound up your street, then this is the trip for you. Kicking off in the charismatic capital of Dublin, this one winds through to Kilkenny where you'll take a bike tour, before stopping at Cork. Then it's all about hiking your way across the wild beauty of the west coast, as you check out the Cliffs of Moher, Galway Bay and the Giant's Causeway. Finally, you'll reach Belfast, where you can hit up the Titanic museum, before having one more chance to uncover Dublin's epic nightlife.

DAY 1 - Arrive Dublin

Dublin

So much more than the capital city, Dublin is a place of heritage, character, and more cute pubs than you could crawl in a week. We'll kick things off with an included dinner before taking a city tour, with a lively night ahead of us on the cobbled lanes of Temple Bar.

DAY 2 - Dublin to Cork via Kilkenny

Dublin

That's us done with Dublin…for now. But fear not Dub-lovers, we'll get another taste of this fine place before our trip comes to an end.

Kilkenny

We'll stop in Kilkenny with an optional bike tour in this gorgeous village, with the chance to try out some hurling, too. We'll also have a chance to go White Water Rafting or Ziplining today, if you want to spike your adrenaline. After admiring Kilkenny's castle, cathedral & mountains of medieval charm before we hit the road again for Cork.

Cork

Welcome to vibrant Cork! Even when the skies are grey, Cork is covered in colour and good vibes. Stroll the River Lee or grab a Guinness as we enjoy a local dinner in a cute pub.

DAY 3 - Cork to Galway via Blarney and Cliffs of Moher

Cork

Hopefully you exhausted all of your cork puns yesterday, as today we are moving on, sightseeing our way to 2-nights in Galway.

Blarney

Irish folklore tells us there's a chunk of limestone built into a castle that grants its kissers the gift of the gab. Pucker up kids, we're paying her a visit!

Cliffs of Moher

If heights aren't your cup of tea, you best sit this one out. Spine tingling, nail biting cliff faces are there to tremble at for those without fear.

Galway

From the moment we arrive in Galway, you'll understand why 2-nights were needed here. Everything you've dreamed Ireland to be is tucked into this small, atmospheric city. Step into a local pub and down Irish stew over live music and chats with locals. Outside will be just as lively, with buskers & colourful buildings lining the streets.

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Visit Blarney Castle and get the gift of the gab as you kiss the Blarney Stone

  • Entry to the magical Cliffs of Moher

DAY 4 - Galway

Galway

Try your tongue at some Gaelic and carry on exploring gorgeous Galway. Or, if you hear the call of the wild, you can sign yourself up to a ferry ride to Aran Islands (summer departures only) where you can dance around with horses and take a bike ride around the picturesque farms, or head up to Dún Aonghasa (the ruins of a prehistoric fortress) - make sure you take photos, this area is not for the faint-hearted! 

Back in Galway we'll enjoy another included dinner in a local pub (is there anything better?) before a free evening to chill and explore the local sights.

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

  • Explore the ancient cultural churches and hike and cycle along the beautiful Aran Islands (Summer Only)

    GBP 30.00

DAY 5 - Galway to Londonderry via Omagh

Galway

Goodbye Galway, hello more Irish eye-candy. Today we continue on towards to Londonderry.

Omagh

Stopping in Omagh for lunch, we'll also get to meet James McCloy, a fourth-generation shepherd who demonstrates sheep farming and particularly his highly trained team of working sheepdogs. We'll visit his farm to learn about his family’s rich history of traditional shepherding practices.

Londonderry

Onto Londonderry, we'll have an optional Bog Side walking tour to take - otherwise we'll just admire the 17th century walls, towering high over the city. Tonight we'll get our bowling shoes on and try and hit some pins at a local alley.

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • See the 17th century city walls of Londonderry

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

  • Sheep Dog Experience

    GBP 28.00

  • Take a LegenDerry Walking Tour and uncover Ireland's troubled recent history

    GBP 10.00

DAY 6 - Londonderry to Belfast via Giant's Causeway

Londonderry

Laters Londonderry, we've got a one way ticket to Belfast and a whole lot more exploration to do.

Giant's Causeway

Belfast

Next up - we'll arrive in Belfast. We'll kick things off with a guided walking tour, before enjoying a free evening - maybe take a trip to the Titanic museum where parts of the world's most famous ship can be seen?

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

  • Giant's Causeway

  • Walking tour

    GBP 10.00

DAY 7 - Belfast to Dublin

Belfast

With one night left in Ireland and on tour, we're on the fast track to Dublin where our Irish fairytale first began.

Dublin

A promise is a promise. Here we are back in the city that started our Ireland infatuations. Use this second stint to do your missed critical activities such as visiting the Guinness Storehouse where you can learn how to pull a pint the Irish way. Another active optional today is kayaking on the Liffey, before heading to the Merry Ploughboys Irish music pub.

  • See Trinity College, the Monument of Light, Parnell Square and St. Stephen's Green

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

  • Visit the famous Guinness Storehouse and learn how to pour a pint of the black stuff

DAY 8 - End Dublin

Dublin

After breakfast we'll leave Ireland today with coastal beauty and pints of guinness in our hearts and memories. Say goodbye at breakfast as it will be the last bite our crew has together - until the next adventure that is. Make sure to swap details and start planning your next trip!
