Check into your hotel. In the afternoon, there’s time to rest or discover the vibrant Irish capital, and maybe join an optional dinner evening at the Guinness Storehouse.

Day 2 DUBLIN.
Meet your Tour Director and traveling companions and start your day in the “Fair City” with an orientation drive along statue-lined O’Connell Street; elegant Georgian squares with their tall red brick townhouses, colorful doors, and wrought-iron decorated windows; Oscar Wilde’s Trinity College; and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Why not end the day with an optional Irish cabaret evening including dinner, dance, song, and laughter? (B)

Day 3 DUBLIN–GALWAY–CLIFFS OF MOHER–LIMERICK.
Head for dairy farm country in the center of the “Emerald Isle.” Stop in Galway, a popular seaside destination and a buzzing cosmopolitan center with colorful shops and a busy café and bar culture. Then, cross the glacial-era limestone plateau of The Burren to visit the spectacular 668-foot CLIFFS OF MOHER before heading for Limerick on the River Shannon. Tonight’s optional opportunity: a medieval banquet at a historic castle. (B)

Day 4 LIMERICK–ADARE–RING OF KERRY–KILLARNEY.
Stop for photos in Adare, one of Ireland’s prettiest villages, beautifully set in woods along the Maigue River, and with thatched cottages lining its wide main street. In County Kerry, join the road known as the RING OF KERRY for a 100-mile coastal panoramic drive. Focus your camera on sparkling seascapes, mountains dotted with brightly colored farmhouses, winding lanes bordered with subtropical vegetation, and views of the Lakes of Killarney from Ladies View. Later, discover Killarney, a town full of history, heritage, and world-class hospitality. A special optional adventure awaits: take a horse-drawn jaunting car along the national park lakeshore for pictures of Ross Castle. (B,D)

Day 5 KILLARNEY–BLARNEY–TRAMORE.
Move on across the Kerry Mountains and through County Cork to Blarney, famous for its magical Stone of Eloquence. You will have time to shop for traditional Irish handicrafts and handmade crystal, or perhaps walk up to the castle. After lunch, drive past Cork, the country’s second-largest city, to Tramore. Tonight, you might like to join an optional pub tour before dinner at your hotel. (B,D)

Day 6 TRAMORE–CARDIFF, WALES.
An early start for the short drive to Rosslare. In just under four hours, you cross St. George’s Channel by FERRY to South Wales. Continue through rich dairy farmland to Cardiff, where an orientation drive introduces you to the capital’s major attractions: Cardiff Castle, Cathays Park, Millennium Stadium, and the stately civic buildings. Tonight, why not join an evening of Welsh entertainment and dinner? (B)

Day 7 CARDIFF–BATH, ENGLAND–STONEHENGE–LONDON.
Your day begins with a drive across the spectacular Severn Bridge into England. Stop in the elegant Georgian city of Bath, famous for its Roman relics, before visiting STONEHENGE, one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe.

Stunning scenery, pretty villages, ancient sites, and exciting cities—this Britain and Ireland tour offers all of this and more. Your tour starts in Dublin, Ireland’s fun capital; ends in London, England’s exciting capital; and overnights along the way in Limerick, Killarney, Tramore, and Cardiff, the capital of Wales.

Highlights of this Ireland and Britain affordable tour package include the 668-foot Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s west coast, where you’ll marvel at breathtaking views of rugged cliffs dropping into the ocean, and the Ring of Kerry, a 100-mile panoramic drive through rugged and magnificent landscapes. You’ll savor views of the sparkling seascapes, mountains dotted with brightly colored farmhouses, winding lanes, and views of the Lakes of Killarney. Words cannot capture the magnificence of these natural beauties; you must witness them in person! Also enjoy drives through rich dairy farmland. Stop for photos in Adare, founded in medieval times and known today as one of Ireland’s friendliest and prettiest villages. In fact, its streets are still lined with the original thatched cottages from the 1820s.

Another tour highlight is prehistoric Stonehenge. You’ve seen photos of Stonehenge—now’s your chance to stand in front of it and try to figure out how these stones weighing 4,000 pounds got there.
