Itinerary: 
 
Sunday 30 July 2023
We pick you up from our designated pick-up point then drive across Ireland, with comfort stops en-route. We will have a lunch stop at Adare, Co Limerick at approximately 13.30hrs.
Adare is regarded as being Ireland's prettiest and most picturesque village and is a haven for those wishing to escape and unwind taking in its medieval surroundings - some of the thatched cottages are home to arts and crafts shops. The main street of Adare is punctuated with beautiful stone buildings, medieval monasteries and ruins and the picturesque village park. Take a stroll through Adare's streets and visit the beautiful Heritage Centre. We will depart Adare and travel on to Killarney where you will check into your hotel for the first of 2 nights with dinner after which the evening will be at your leisure. (D, B&B)
 
Monday 31 July 2023
After breakfast we will board the coach and make our way the short distance to 15th Century Ross Castle where we will board a cruise boat and set sail for a scenic 1-hour tour of Lough Leane, Killarney’s largest and most picturesque lake, with heritage attractions including O’Sullivan Cascade and the monastic ruins of Inishfallen Island. After the cruise we will continue on to Muckross House and Gardens for a tour of the house and some free time to explore the gardens. Muckross House is situated close to the shores of Muckross Lake, amidst the beautiful scenery of Killarney National Park. The house is a focal point within the park and is the ideal base from which to explore its terrain. Return to the hotel in time for dinner. (D, B&B)
 
Tuesday 1 August 2023
We check out of the hotel after breakfast and today’s excursion takes us to the famous Ring of Kerry travelling from Killarney to Killorglin, Glenbeigh, Waterville, Sneem and Kenmare. In Kenmare you will have free time to enjoy this picturesque town which is a haven of tranquility, gourmet food and breathtaking scenery. There will be plenty of stops for refreshments and photo opportunities throughout the day. We will continue on to our new hotel in Bantry where you will have dinner in the evening and time to relax for the evening. (D, B&B)
 
Wednesday 2 August 2023
After breakfast we will drive to Glengarriff where we will take a short boat ride to the nearby island of Ilnacullin, better known as Garnish Island. This small island of 15 hectares (37 acres) is known to horticulturists around the world as an island garden of rare beauty. Because of its sheltered situation and the warming influence of the Gulf Stream the climate is in some respect almost subtropical, and is favourable to the growth of ornamental plants from many parts of the world. Even for those who are not particularly interested in gardens, Garnish Island is an attractive place to visit. There are many lovely views of the scenery of the surrounding district and its surrounding waters are quite rich in wildlife, particularly seals which frequent the rocks on the southern shore. Return to the hotel. (D, B&B)
 
Thursday 3 August 2023
We check out of the hotel this morning and drive to Clonakilty, one of Ireland’s best-known tourist destinations boasting some excellent historic and heritage attractions. Here we will visit the Model Village – a wonderful trip back in time to the 1940’s where the West Cork Railway Line was at the heart of the many communities who lived and worked along the line. Afterwards you will have a little free time to wander around the town yourself and perhaps explore some of the long list of restaurants, cafes and bars, all serving the very best of what West Cork has to offer. We will depart Clonakilty and continue on to our final stop in Kinsale, “Ireland’s Riviera”. Here you will have a little free time to explore this busy town - you can enjoy browsing in its many shops for gifts, crafts, paintings, locally designed fashions, art galleries, book shops or you can take time out in one of its many lovely cafés for a bite to eat or coffee and cakes. We will depart Kinsale and begin the journey homeward dropping you at your original pick-up points.
