The sunsets were breathtaking and it amazed us how tides worked there." Overall, everything was really great.We weren't sure what to expect from a tour and found the tour members very friendly.
Each day along the way, in the good hands of your Rick Steves guide and local experts, you'll be amazed at all you'll experience in a mere week of touring the Emerald Isle: must-see historical sites, charming towns, music-filled pubs, artisan visits, and walking tours — including the Rock of Cashel, the Cliffs of Moher, Adare Village, Dingle, the Great Blasket Centre, Kilkenny Castle, Glendalough, the Brú na Bóinne archaeology site, crystal cutting, whiskey tasting, and more. Tonight we'll enjoy a gourmet dinner of local specialties followed by an evening of Gaelic tunes. We'll stop to tour the strikingly situated Great Blasket Centre, where we'll get a close-up look at the language, literature, and daily life of a traditional Gaelic Blasket community. Today we'll bid goodbye to Dingle as our bus transports us across the Emerald Isle.Upon returning to town, we'll see Dingle from another angle and hopefully meet its famous dolphin, Fungie, as we take a boat cruise around Dingle Bay. On our way we'll stop to tour one of Ireland's most historic and evocative sights: the Rock of Cashel. Patrick himself was here more than 1,500 years ago, and ever since, the Rock has been the spiritual heart of Ireland.The remainder of the evening is free for you to soak in more of Dingle's charms and enjoy dinner on your own. From the craggy remains of the cathedral and castle to the views stretching out across the Plain of Tipperary, this is where the Irish in you will stir from head to toe. This morning we'll visit Kilkenny Castle, a symbol of Norman occupation since the 12th century.Tonight we'll compare notes and celebrate our marvelous week together over a farewell dinner. You can fly out of Dublin's handy airport, or take the ferry to Wales for further adventures in the British Isles.Your guide will help you with any post-tour planning, leaving you well prepared for the road ahead. Then we'll take an orientation walk around Ennis, beginning with a tour of the Friary. En route we'll stop to visit the dramatic Cliffs of Moher, where you'll find yourself leaning into the wind, teetering on the very edge of Europe, more than 600 feet above the churning waters of the North Atlantic and County Limerick's lovely village of Adare. It's a great day to experience some of Europe's wildest natural beauty and most ancient Christian sites.
After breakfast, we'll pack up and board our comfy bus, setting course for Ireland's Dingle Peninsula.
This was a trip were there was the big spectacular moment, as much as there were many smaller, very interesting things to see and do over the course of the trip." Wow! We have previously traveled to Ireland independently, but our tour guide, Steven, made our tour unforgettable.
Even though we experienced a hurricane which hadn't occurred since fifty years ago, we loved every day of our trip. Steven used his Dingle connections to provide us with an interesting talk from the "Chef Interrupted" author, entertaining Irish music, free drinks, and an outstanding dinner.
I travelled with my husband and our oldest daughter. I was always a little hesitant to travel in a group as I felt that seeing the big tourist attractions was not my thing.
I like the idea of going off the beaten path in order to see and experience the people and the landscape as well as getting to know more about the history. Our Bed and Breakfast was located along the harbor and it was just beautiful!
It did interfere with one major event on the tour, in that the Cliffs of Moher were closed to the public on the day we were scheduled to visit because of the weather, however our tour guide, Stephen quickly planned a couple of alternative activities to fill in the void. "As with any Rick Steves tour there are many "wow" moments on a trip like this.
