Immerse yourself in farm life as you sample homemade scones with tea, and enjoy a sheep herding demonstration at a working sheep farm. Trip Highlights: Cliffs of Moher Cliffs of Moher One of Ireland’s top visitor attractions, the cliffs are 700 feet high and extend for 5 miles over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. O’Brien’s Tower stands proudly on a headland and one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay and Connemara. The cliffs are home to major colonies of cliff nesting seabirds. Aran Islands Excursion Aran Islands Excursion Take a ferry ride to Inis Mór, the largest of the three Aran Islands located in Galway Bay. There are about 1100 people living on the island, mainly known for its intricate hand-knit sweaters. See the stone fortress of Dun Aengus, resting on the edge of a perpendicular cliff rising 100 metres out of the ocean and Kilronan, the main village on the island. Blarney Castle Blarney Castle Built nearly 600 years ago by one of Ireland’s greatest chieftains, Cormac MacCarthy, this stronghold has been attracting attention ever since. Millions have flocked to Blarney to kiss the legendary Stone of Eloquence, found at the top of the tower, making it one of Ireland’s greatest treasures. Cobh Heritage Centre Cobh Heritage Centre From 1848 to 1950 over 6 million adults and children emigrated from Ireland - over 2.5 million departed from Cobh, making it the single most important port of emigration. See ”coffin ships” as well as other vessels, including the Titanic, that stopped in Cobh. Clonmacnoise Monastic Site Clonmacnoise Monastic Site This great monastery was founded in 548 by St Ciaran and was a great centre of learning in medieval times. Many manuscripts were written there. Today see three high crosses and the ruins of a cathedral, seven churches and two round towers set on a mound beside the River Shannon. Scenic Dingle Peninsula Scenic Dingle Peninsula The Dingle Peninsula stretches 30 miles into the Atlantic Ocean from Ireland’s south-west coast and is dominated by the Slieve Mish Mountains and Mount Brandon, Ireland’s second highest peak. The steep sea-cliffs and sandy beaches provide spectacular views. Dun Aengus Fort Dun Aengus Fort Dún Aonghasa is the most famous of several prehistoric hill forts on the Aran Islands of County Galway, Republic of Ireland. It lies on Inishmore, at the edge of a 100 meter high cliff. Dunbrody Emigrant Ship Dunbrody Emigrant Ship The present ship is a reconstruction of the Dunbrody, built in Quebec in 1845. The original was a 458 tonne three-masted barque, designed to carry cargo but adapted to carry passengers desperate to escape harrowing conditions during the Famine years. Irish National Stud & Gardens Irish National Stud & Gardens Established in 1946, the Irish National Stud promotes the development of Irish bloodstock and is the only Irish stud farm open to the public where visitors can see some of Ireland's finest thoroughbreds. The Japanese Gardens were created in the early 20th century and symbolize the 'Life of Man' while St. Fiachra's was created to celebrate the Millennium with a strong focus on rock and water. Malahide Castle Malahide Castle Malahide Castle, parts of which date to the 12th century, lies, with over 260 acres of remaining estate parkland, close to the village of Malahide, nine miles north of Dublin in Ireland. Dining Experiences: Six dinners including a Dunboyne Castle Hotel welcome dinner, pub dinner in Dingle, and a traditional Irish dinner and show at Taylor's Three Rock Hotels: IE-MEA-DCA Dunboyne (1 night) IE-KIK-NEW Kilkenny (2 nights) IE-KER-KTH Killarney (2 nights) IE-GAL-SAL Galway (2 nights) IE-DUB-NST Dublin (1 night)
