Itinerary

The first stop on your tour is Dublin. When you land, you’ll notice the River Liffey that flows through the center of the city. Get ready for your first adventure tomorrow.

The first stop today offers undoubtedly one of the top things you think of when you think of Ireland: whiskey! You’ll receive a guided tour of the Irish Whiskey Museum, where you’ll learn about how whiskey became so linked with the country and how it’s made. After, you’ll do a whiskey tasting.

Now, you’ll go to Kilmainham Gaol. It’s a large grey building that’s played a huge part in Ireland’s fight for independence. You’ll learn about this place and how it’s impacted the state of Ireland today.

First, head to EPIC The Irish Immigration Museum, a high-tech museum full of interactive exhibits for you to enjoy. You’ll learn about how emigration impacted Ireland and more about the 70 million people who left the country.

Now, it’s time to volunteer! You’ll work with a local soup kitchen to prepare dinner and help serve to those in need.

It’s your last day in Dublin! First, head to The Little Museum of Dublin. It tells the story of the city with memorabilia, photos, and artifacts. You’ll receive a guided tour where you’ll learn about the last century of the capital of Ireland’s history.

For your last stop in Dublin, you’re visiting the Guinness Storehouse! A tour guide will tell you the story of the country’s favorite drink. There’s even the world’s largest pint glass which runs through the middle of the building! At the end of the tour, you’ll enjoy a free pint of Guinness while you observe the wonderful views of Dublin.

You have one last thing to do today: hop on a plane and fly to Cork to see new sights tomorrow.

In Cork, you’ll find one of Ireland’s most iconic sights. Make your way to Blarney Castle, the home of the famous Blarney Stone. Once you’ve taken in the castle’s architecture, it’s traditional to plant a kiss on the Blarney Stone. Pucker up!

Next, you’ll go to Spike Island, the home of Fort Mitchell. It housed over 2,300 prisoners and has been called “Ireland’s Alcatraz.” Your tour guide will tell you more about the island and its history, as it has been home to many other structures since the 6th century.

After you wake up, go to a restaurant and eat a full Irish breakfast. It’s similar to a full English, but there are some slight differences. All this food will give you more than enough energy for your last day in Ireland.

Today, you’ll be taking a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher. These cliffs are absolutely stunning and rise to over 700 feet. You’ll be able to hear the waters of the Atlantic Ocean crash against the stone below. You can get a beautiful view of the coastline and the Aran Islands from these cliffs, so look out and enjoy.

Unfortunately, your time in Ireland has come to an end. But now that you’ve seen so much of this beautiful country, you’ll find a time to come back!

Ireland is an ancient land of legend and proud history, as well as a forward-thinking innovator in the modern world. On this trip you’ll get to know amazing Dublin, as you visit the Guinness Brewery, a whisky distillery, and learn about the Emerald Isle’s tragic history of famine, English exploitation and emigration. And of course you’ll also visit iconic sites like the Blarney Stone and the Cliffs of Moher. Book your epic Eire adventure today!
