Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Upon arrival a driver will meet you at the airport and transport you to your hotel via a private car. Afterwards, take in the sights of Dublin on an electric bicycle tour of the city that cycles past some of the city’s highlights, including Dublin Castle and the Christchurch Cathedral.

  • Visit Kilmainham Gaol and delve into the history of the rebellion and Irish Civil War. Continue to learn about the history of the city on your behind-the-scenes tour of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. On this secret tour you can explore some areas of the cathedral not usually accessible to the public.

  • Transfer south to Kilkenny for a walking tour along the city’s Medieval Mile followed by a visit to Ballykeefe Distillery, an intimate distillery set on a working farm.

  • This morning visit a local farm estate to watch a skilled sheepdog roundup a small herd of sheep and explore the ruins of Newtown Jerpoint, a 12th century town. Spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying the many amenities available at your hotel. You can go fishing on the River Nore, visit the state-of-the-art Equestrian Centre or partake in a private hawk walk with expert falconers.

  • Journey to your manor estate accommodation via the Dunbrody Famine Ship (a full-scale reproduction of an emigrant vessel), The Kennedy Homestead and Tintern Abbey. The final stop is also home to the Colclough Walled Garden, which is a beautifully resorted Georgian walled garden.

  • Travel along the scenic Copper Coast, dotted with scalloped beaches, coves, and rocky headlands, en route to the historic gardens of Lismore Castle, which are set within the castle walls of the Irish home of the Duke of Devonshire. Continue inland to the extravagant Adare Manor for your accommodations in one of Ireland’s most prestigious hotels.

  • Enjoy a full day exploring County Clare with your knowledgeable guide. Your guide will transfer you through the otherworldly landscape of the Burren to see the limestone karst pavement formed by glaciers and the tour will be capped off with a private boat tour of the iconic Cliffs of Moher.

  • Today your private driver will transfer you to Shannon Airport for your flight home.
