  3. Day 3 Enniscrone – Westport – Galway

    Travel to Westport and meet your 'Local Specialist' for a walking tour during which you'll learn about the town's heritage - from its settlement 5,000 years ago to modern-day times. Visit the Benedictine monastery of Kylemore Abbey, set against the striking backdrop of Lake Kylemore, and stroll through its walled Victorian gardens. We continue to Galway, the 'City of Tribes', where we'll see Galway Cathedral and spend the rest of the evening at leisure.

    Dramatic vistas are ours to enjoy as we circle the achingly beautiful Ring of Kerry - one of the most scenic drives on the Emerald Isle. See a soul-stirring landscape that has inspired poets, artists and writers for centuries, before returning to Killarney where you have the rest of the afternoon free to explore on your terms. Consider a leisurely guided walk at Torc Waterfall with a 'Local Specialist' taking you along the lakeshore and past the farmlands of the 19th-century Muckross Estate.

    Kiss the famous Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle and receive the 'gift of the gab'. Travel to County Kilkenny to discover the 12th-century town of Newtown Jerpoint and hear about the saint buried there, who inspired the legend of Santa Claus.

Returning to the Irish capital, visit Trinity College and enjoy priority access to see the Book of Kells, said to be the world's most famous medieval manuscript. All that's left to say is a rousing sláinte or two while you indulge in a memorable Farewell Dinner, enjoying a fun night out at a classic public house in the city. Admire the authentic Victorian bar and walk up the original staircase from Trinity College, which was featured in the Michael Caine film 'Educating Rita'.

Had a wonderful time, went to all the places I wanted to see, had great weather, very interesting and informative talks while traveling from Barbara, our tour group. Hotels were clean and the meals were delicious. Missed our flight out to the tour, Barbara was very helpfull in advising how to meet up with the group the following day.

the hotels were great as was the pub experiences and the food. I would have liked staying in a town more than so far out of several towns but I know that it is more expensive. I really enjoyed the time we had in Kilarney.

We looked at several trips and felt we got the best of what wewanted to see with the affordable price of this trip!.

I would recommend this tour. A couple of more days would be nice. Guess I’ll have to go back for more castle and pub dinners and entertainment. Our guide Mike and driver Tony where the best,
