    Package Overview

    Embark on your exploration of Ireland by rail upon arrival at Shannon Airport. You’ll have round-trip airport transfers, allowing for ease of travel. Begin in Killarney, the heart beat in the south of Ireland. The Ring of Kerry is one of the region’s most celebrated attractions, stretching across Killarney and providing visitors with magnificent views of Killarney National Park, Gap of Dunloe and beyond!

    Spend two nights in Cork, home of the Blarney Stone and Castle and the English Market. A trip to the English Market is a great way to discover the eclectic and distinct culture of the south.

    After a relaxing train ride from Cork, you'll arrive in Dublin. Admission to the elegant and historic Christ Church Cathedral gives you some insight into the spiritual and storied history of Dublin. Afterwards, enjoy discounts into two of the liveliest attractions: the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery.

    With rail fare between cities you'll be able to arrive at each destination well-rested with your devices charged and ready to sightsee. Explore the diverse land of Galway where you’ll find Connemara Park, Kylemore Abbey and the bustling Eyre Square in the city center. In Limerick you can visit King John’s Castle or the Treaty Stone before continuing on to Waterford.

    Two major highlights of Waterford are included in this package: House of Waterford Crystal and the Waterford Treasures Viking Triangle. See how the internationally celebrated Waterford Crystal is produced from start to finish and maybe purchase a shimmering souvenir. The city’s Viking heritage is still very prominent throughout the city today. Through the set of three museums in the Viking Triangle you can see the history come to life!
