DAY 1: DUBLIN TO KILLARNEY

We leave Dublin at 9.30am and head southwest into the lush green Irish countryside. Pass the River Liffey on the way to the imposing Rock of Cashel, once the seat of the Kings of Munster, before travelling through the Golden Vale to Blarney Castle in the rebel county of Cork. Now’s your chance to give the famous stone a big juicy smacker to get the legendary ‘gift of the gab’ and explore the castle’s Poison Garden.

We stay overnight in the party town of Killarney and head out to some local pubs where you can get acquainted with the Irish national drink; Guinness. You will never taste a creamier pint of the black stuff outside of Ireland! 

DAY 2: KILLARNEY TO ENNIS

Today, it’s all about breath-taking scenery and adventure. We take the stunning Slea Head Drive down the coast and spend the day exploring the dramatic Dingle Peninsula, the highlight of the Wild Atlantic Way. Your Guide will take you to the edge of the ancient world and tell tales of our ancient heroes and warriors. Spot 'The Sleeping Giant' and 'The Three Sisters' amongst the rugged coastline and take in the stunning Coumeenoole Beach, before we travel through Tralee into County Clare. We spend the night in charming Ennis where the pubs are filled with locals playing traditional Irish music. Grab your pint of Guinness and get carried away by the lively tunes!

DAY 3: ENNIS TO DUBLIN

Today we brave the heights and soak up the dramatic views at the Cliffs of Moher that tower high above the wild Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy the wind on your face as you snap a photo of potentially the most famous cliffs in the world that were also used as a backdrop in Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince and The Princess Bride. Afterwards, we’ll explore the weird and magical world of the Burren, Ireland’s lunar landscape and home to fairies and leprechauns! Leave the mesmerising landscapes behind and have lunch in one of the brightly painted pubs of Galway, Ireland’s cultural capital, before returning to Dublin at approximately 5.30pm. check-in to our city centre hostel and join the legendary St Pats welcome party where you’ll meet all the other party goers.

DAY 4: DUBLIN 

Explore the sights and streets of Dublin on our Shamrocker walking tour led by your local Guide before we head to the Guinness Storehouse to discover all there is to know about 'the black stuff'. No need to queue with our fast track entry tickets, so we get straight to business! In the afternoon you have plenty of time to enjoy the festival vibe and take in the music and dancing happening throughout the city. This is also your chance to put the finishing touches to your outfit for the big day. And remember you can never go too GREEN!

DAY 5: ST PATRICKS DAY, DUBLIN

St Patrick's Day! Today is the day you've been waiting for. Dress up in Green and grab your spot early, as the streets of Dublin fill up fast with other partygoers ready to enjoy the official parade. We're based in the heart of the action, Temple Bar so get ready to have your senses bombarded with colour, music and dancing! Squeeze into a nearby pub for a live music session or join the dancing in the streets. This is St Patrick’s Day done by the Irish on their native soil… expect a wild one!

DAY 6:  DUBLIN TO BALLINTOY

We start from the Fair City of Dublin and leave the Republic behind when we head north to Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland. Take the chance to do a famous Black Cab Tour with a local cabbie at the wheel and explore the Loyalist and Republican heartlands with their famous political murals. Alternatively, you have free time to see the city or visit Belfast’s Titanic Experience to learn about the iconic, yet doomed ship. In the afternoon we head even further north to 'The Dark Hedges' that starred as the Kingsroad on the HBO hit series Game of Thrones. We spend the night in the rural village of Ballintoy, which will also be familiar to the Game of Thrones fans as Lordsport on the Isle of Pyke. You will have the chance to head to the stunning Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and sway Indiana Jones' style over the choppy Atlantic Ocean, before admiring the stunning sunset.

DAY 7: BALLINTOY TO DUBLIN

What a way to start the day! We follow in the footsteps of Giants on the eighth natural wonder of the world and UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Giant's Causeway. With its thousands of hexagonal column’s, you can make up your mind what caused it; a giant or geology? After Lunch along the North Antrim coast we make our return to Dublin arriving at approx. 5.30pm.
