(8 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Kenmare, Co. Clare, Co. Mayo (Ashford Castle)

This private Ireland tour is a popular itinerary for travelers wanting to experience the West Coast, home to many of Ireland's most impressive scenic highlights and castle hotels.

Begin with a drive to Kenmare in County Kerry, a colorful village with a prehistoric stone circle and access to the beautiful peninsulas that define southwest Ireland. Opt to stop at Bunratty Castle to tour the impressive 15th-century fortress and neighboring Bunratty Folk Park, a charming recreation of a 19th-century Irish village. Pass through Adare, a postcard-perfect village of thatched-roof houses and shops. One day, enjoy a scenic drive around the breathtaking Beara Peninsula, a wild landscape of jagged coastlines, craggy mountains and sparkling lakes. Alternatively, enjoy an excursion on the renowned Ring of Kerry through the dramatic landscapes of Iveragh Peninsula. Other options from Kenmare include visiting historic Bantry House & Garden, a privately owned estate on park-like grounds overlooking spectacular Bantry Bay, or enjoy hiking, biking, an artisanal chocolate making class or a sheep shearing and sheepdog demonstration.

Continue to historic Dromoland Castle, a luxurious destination hotel and resort on expansive grounds in southern County Clare.  En route, pass through the heart of Killarney National Park. If desired, tour the estate and grounds of Muckross House and take a horse-drawn jaunting car ride through the woods to Ross Castle. Alternatively, drive the spectacular Dingle Peninsula, taking in awe-inspiring views of the coastline and mountains. Along the way, explore ancient ring forts and other prehistoric sites, wander through quaint seaside towns, and visit shops featuring crafts created by the many local artisans. During leisure time at Dromoland Castle, enjoy on-site activities such as golf, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, falconry, tennis, archery and more.

Next, explore the country charm and geological wonders of County Clare en route to Ashford Castle in County Mayo. Walk along the tops of the dramatic Cliffs of Moher, which rise hundreds of feet above the sea. Explore the eerie Burren, a rocky karst landscape punctuated by ancient forts, tombs and other archaeological sites. Pass through picturesque villages with brightly colored houses and shops. Stop at a local smokehouse famous for smoked Irish salmon, and enjoy lunch at a nearby pub. Other options include hiking or a visit to a local artisanal perfumery.

Conclude in County Mayo at Ashford Castle, a historic lakefront castle hotel and resort that’s a wonderful place to experience Irish culture and cuisine. One day, enjoy a beautiful scenic 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, drive along the coast of Ireland’s only fjord, and visit Kylemore Abbey, a beautiful stone building and gardens set on the edge of a lake. During leisure time, enjoy activities on the surrounding estate, such as golf, fishing, horseback riding, falconry, kayaking and more.
