Sample Itinerary – one of our expert travel planners will customize a tour tailored to your preferences.
Arrive in Dublin following an overnight flight from the USA. The Hertz Car Rental counter is an easy walk from the terminal and they’ll have you underway quickly to Cabra Castle, about an hour drive from the airport. Stroll the grounds taking in the history and architecture of the building or venture through some of the 100 acres of the supporting parkland. Golf and tennis is available to help work off any lingering jet lag.
Nearby Cabra Castle is the UNESCO World Heritage site `Brú na Bóinne - commonly referred to as Newgrange. Older than Stonehenge or the Pyramids, the 5,000 year old archaeological “passage tombs” are sure to amaze and offer a fascinating glimpse into the history of Ireland. Return to your Castle for an amazing dinner.

Drive across country today to your next Castle stop, the lovely 4 Star Abbeyglen Castle Hotel. Located in the seaside town of Clifden in the picturesque Connemara region is the more traditional West of Ireland once described by Oscar Wilde as a “wild mountainous country,” “in every way magnificent”. We could not agree more.
Enjoy a traditional Irish Breakfast (it’s included daily in this package!) and then leave your car parked and rent a bike for the day. You’ll enjoy getting close to the natural beauty of the area. The friendly staff of Abbeyglen will make arrangements for you and provide suggestions on a route suited to your interest and conditions. After a day out, pamper yourself in the Health and Wellness center with a massage or facial.
As you head south to County Kerry, consider a stop in the bustling city of Galway frequently called “the most Irish city in Ireland” en route to your next Castle and one of the most popular – the wonderful Ballyseede Castle Hotel in Tralee at the doorsteps of the famous Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula.
Spend today enjoying the legendary sights of Southwest Ireland, or take in a round of golf at one of Ireland’s world-class Links Courses. Spend the evening in Tralee for a night of traditional music and “a pint of the black stuff” and see if you agree with us that Guinness always tastes better in Ireland.
You’re less than a two hour drive to Shannon Airport where you typically clear US Customs ahead of your flight back to the United States, alllowing you to arrive home as a “domestic” passenger and if necessary, makes connections much easier.
