The ultimate private tour of Ireland, this exclusive itinerary features private cultural touring, iconic Irish landscapes and the finest castle hotels, including the incomparable Ballyfin.

Begin with a stay in County Mayo at Ashford Castle, a historic lakefront castle hotel and resort that’s a wonderful place to experience Irish culture and cuisine. During leisure time, enjoy activities on the surrounding estate, such as golf, fishing, horseback riding, falconry, kayaking and more. One day, enjoy a private excursion to Connemara National Park, a rugged landscape of mountains, moors and bogs. Along the way, pass through tiny villages, admire views of the sea, and visit Kylemore Abbey, a beautiful stone building and gardens set on the edge of a lake.

Next, see the dramatic Cliffs of Moher, which rise hundreds of feet above the sea. Also explore the eerie Burren, a rocky karst landscape punctuated by ancient forts, tombs and other archaeological sites. Stop at a local smokehouse famous for smoked Irish salmon, and enjoy lunch at a nearby pub. Stay in County Clare at historic Dromoland Castle, a luxurious destination hotel and resort on expansive grounds. During leisure time, enjoy on-site activities such as golf, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, falconry, tennis, archery and more.

En route to County Kerry, pass through Adare, a postcard-perfect village of thatched-roof houses and shops. Visit Bunratty Castle, an impressive 15th-century fortress and neighboring Bunratty Folk Park, a charming recreation of a 19th-century Irish village. Visit beautiful Killarney National Park. Take a horse-drawn jaunting car ride through the woods to Ross Castle, and tour the estate and grounds of Muckross House.

Continue to Kenmare, a colorful village with a prehistoric stone circle. One day, enjoy a scenic drive along a portion of the renowned Ring of Kerry, passing through Moll’s Gap and seeing Ladies View, a panorama over the lakes of the national park. Alternatively, drive along the breathtaking Beara Peninsula, a wild landscape of jagged coastlines, craggy mountains and sparkling lakes.

En route to County Laois and Ballyfin, visit the imposing Rock of Cashel, an important hilltop religious complex dating from the Middle Ages, or stop by Kilkenny, an atmospheric riverside town, to explore the shops and tour Kilkenny Castle and St. Canice’s Cathedral.

Continue to Ballyfin, Ireland’s most sumptuous and romantic hotel. During leisure time at this luxurious restored manor house in the Slieve Bloom Mountains, enjoy on-site activities such as fishing, boating, croquet, tennis, archery, falconry and clay pigeon shooting.

One day, enjoy a private excursion to Dublin. Alternatively, tour the highlights of County Wicklow: the stunning gardens at Powerscourt House and Gardens; Glendalough, a beautiful glacial valley with the ruins of an ancient monastery set among lakes; and historic Avoca Mill, where some of Ireland’s finest and most colorful textiles have been produced for centuries.
