14 Day Like a Local Tour

This epic journey squeezes in almost everything our little country has to offer while doing it at a relaxed pace so you get to enjoy and soak up the culture at every opportunity. It takes in 6 major cities including Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Galway, Derry and Killarney as well as show casing some of the lesser known towns and villages to give you a real sense of both rural and city life in Ireland. 

This tour has it all, starting with a trip to Newgrange passage tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage site not far from Dublin city centre. Heading North to Belfast city to learn all about the political unrest in Northern Ireland, maybe a visit to the world famous Titanic centre and some free time to explore the city. We continue Northward to check out The Giants Causeway and the journey has just begun. 

Soon you will find yourself exploring the Aran Islands, a discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way. Why not see the island by bicycle or by traditional horse and cart. After all of that fresh air and stunning scenery it's on to Galway city, the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way, for two nights of fun and excitement in one of Europe's culture capitals. Here you might find time to relax and unwind in the hotels leisure centre and spa or get yourself out on the town to experience one of the many pubs Galway has to offer.

The Cliffs of Moher are next on the list, a signature discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way, and they are certain not to disappoint. Making our way to Dingle for two nights to get our fill of traditional Irish music, Dingle is a haven for all things traditional both indoor and out. 

The Ring of Kerry is a must, with many Wild Atlantic Way destinations along the way it leads us right into the heart of Killarney and its majestic National Park with 1000s of acres to explore. 

Before you know it we are in Cork, the largest county in Ireland and some say the real capital! Staying the night here to explore what the rebel county has to offer then on to Blarney castle to kiss the world famous Blarney stone

Kilkenny is our next destination to ramble around the medieval streets and our last night of the tour.

On our way back to Dublin we visit Glendalough National park in the heart of the garden of Ireland.
