Day 1: Dublin - Capital of Ireland
Welcome to Dublin, Ireland's Capital. On arrival at Dublin Airport, pass through immigration and pick up your baggage. At 2:00 pm set off on your afternoon tour of Dublin with a local guide. Your tour includes visits to Dublin Castle to see the State Apartments where many historic events have taken place and also to the Guinness Storehouse to learn about the famous black stout. This evening meet your fellow travelers to enjoy dinner and a show at Doyle's Irish Cabaret. (D)

Day 2: Blarney Castle & Killarney
See a variety of scenery today as you depart Dublin and drive through rich farm country and busy market towns. Stop at a sheep farm near Cashel to sample some home-baked scones with tea and learn a little about Irish farming. Just outside Cork visit Blarney Castle where you have an opportunity to acquire the gift of eloquence by kissing the famous stone. Continue towards the mountainous country of Kerry and into Killarney. After dinner, perhaps explore one of Killarney's famous singing pubs. (B, D)

Day 3: Ring of Kerry Tour
Dress comfortably for a jaunting car tour which will transport you along the shores of Muckross Lake for a guided tour of the 19th century Muckross House. Then embark on Ireland's most popular scenic drive, the Ring of Kerry, by skirting Ireland's highest mountains, the Macgillycuddy's Reeks. Your route passes through Glenbeigh, with palm trees and beautiful beaches; remote Waterville; and the colorful village of Sneem. Head back towards Killarney through Moll's Gap in time for dinner. (B, D)

Day 4: Cliffs of Moher & Bunratty Castle
Depart Killarney and travel to Tarbert to take the ferry across the River Shannon. Your tour continues along the Clare coast to the Cliffs of Moher which rise 700 feet above the Atlantic. Drive to the Shannonside region to check into your hotel. This evening a banquet and evocative entertainment in Bunratty Castle will take you back in spirit to the Middle Ages. (B, D)

Day 5: Shannon Airport & Dublin
This morning you transfer to Shannon Airport for return flights to the United States. As the Great Southern Hotel is within easy walking distance of Shannon Airport and luggage trolleys are generally available, you may transfer independently at your preferred time. If you wish to end your tour in Dublin drive through pleasant scenery of the midland region. The tour concludes at Dublin Airport at about 4:00 pm or in the city center at 4:30 pm. (B)
