The Wild Atlantic Way
Day 1 – Arrive Shannon airport (Dublin arrivals can be arranged) and meet your Irish driver/ guide in the Arrivals Hall. Travel to Galway City, said to be “the most Irish city in Ireland” and take in the charm of the city. Nothing beats jet-lag better than being outdoors, and Galway is a wonderful walking city. We like Galway Food Tours for their unique way of blending culture and culinary for a great insight to the city. Overnight: The Hardiman, Galway City Center
Day 2 – Today visit Connemara one of the most scenic regions in Ireland. It’s craggy mountain peaks, expansive sandy beaches and laced network of lakes exemplify the peaceful solitude and rugged beauty of The West of Ireland. Continue on to Westport the essence of Ireland’s magical west. Nestling safely at the foot of towering Croagh Patrick, overlooking Clew Bay and its enchanting islands, the town weaves its spell around everyone it meets. Then, return to Galway and perhaps take in an evening of traditional music. Overnight: The Hardiman, Galway City Center

The highlight of the day will likely be the iconic Cliffs of Moher as you marvel at the giant sea wall, ask your driver to drop you off a bit ahead of the Visitor Center for a unique approach to this stunning natural setting. Then continue on to the charming city of Killarney for your next stop. Overnight: The Great Southern, Killarney
Day 4 – The centerpiece of County Kerry is Killarney, a small easily walkable town surrounded by Killarney National Park, a 25-square-mile expanse of unspoiled and unpolluted scenery — three beautiful lakes, mountains, woodlands, waterfalls, flora, and fauna. Today may be the day to rent a bike or try your hand at kayaking one of the legendary lakes. Overnight: Great Southern Hotel, Killarney

After a day enjoying the natural beauty, arrive at the stunning Dromoland Castle and indulge in some more worldly beauty! Overnight: Dromoland Castle Hotel, Newmarket on Fergus
