Package Description

If you like to explore and stay a bit off the beaten path while you travel, our new IRISH DISCOVERIES package is just for you!

Enjoy 6 nights exploring some of the smaller market towns the give Ireland its unique charm, combined with the ease of your last night in Dublin, allowing for a convenient departure home. Combined with your rental car, you'll enjoy freedom to go beyond into the countryside - and venture on day trips into larger cities too like Galway and Limerick.

Upon arrival and picking up your rental car, you'll drive west to the Johnstown House, a lovely country house less than an hour from Dublin in historic County Meath. With its elegant ambience and incredibly helpful staff, Johnstown House will transport you to a different world. Meath is also full of history so take time to see the Boyne Valley sights such as Newgrange and the Hill of Tara.

Co Mayo is your next destination for two nights and the comfortable country house feeling of the Breaffy House Hotel and Resort in the market town of Castlebar makes an excellent base for side trips to Westport (visit Matt Molloy's pub of The Chieftains fame!) and on along the Sky Road into the fishing village of Clifden - home of the best seafood you'll ever eat!

A leisurely journey south brings you via Galway into the bustling market town of Ennis. The Temple Gate Hotel is in the heart of Ennis and its cheery modern rooms and central location make this a perfect spot for you next two nights. From here, you can easily visit the Cliffs of Moher & the Burren, Limerick City - or maybe even catch the ferry across the Shannon or visit the Aran Islands for the day!

Travel south again through the hills of Co Limerick and on into the "Kingdom" - Co Kerry, as it's called. Killarney is a truly delightful little town with shopping and pubs with live "trad" music nightly - and not to mention, a beautiful natural setting near the Lakes of Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. Your hotel for two nights is the 5-star Muckross Park Hotel, situated just across from the National Park. A combination of old world tradition and sleek modern amenties, your stay here will be a treat!

Your last night is in Dublin at the downtown Academy Plaza Hotel, tucked just off historic O'Connell Street. Pubs, shopping, theatre - it's all within a short walk, so enjoy your last night in Ireland and try a bit of everything and make your own IRISH DISCOVERIES!
