From Dublin to Galway, Killarney to Kilkenny, this full yet well-paced 13-day tour showcases Ireland's many charms – both old and new. Your small group of no more than 24 Horned Frog travelers sets out touring the intimate Irish capital of Dublin, including visits to Trinity College with its stunning Book of Kells and St. Patrick's Cathedral, and a walking tour of the haunts of Ireland's beloved literary sons.

Travel westward to Galway, which some consider the "most Irish part of Ireland," stopping for tea at Tyrrellpass Castle before continuing on to 6th-century Clonmacnoise. Journey through the legendary Connemara region to beautiful Kylemore Abbey, followed by an excursion to Inismor, largest of the dramatic Aran Islands, across Galway Bay. Traveling along County Clare’s fabled coastline, pass through The Burren and visit the majestic Cliffs of Moher.

In Killarney, your next destination, enjoy dinner in a local family-run B&B. Travel by boat to Muckross House where the Kerry Folklife Centre showcases the crafts of bookbinding, pottery, and weaving. Experience the Ring of Kerry's stunning mountain and coastal scenery, stopping for an Irish sheepdog demonstration. Visit Blarney with its 15th-century castle and famed Blarney Stone, and continue on to the celebrated Rock of Cashel.

Proceeding to Kilkenny, tour its castle, considered one of the country's most beautiful, and visit the National Stud Farm on your return trip to Dublin. Savor the Antrim Coast's dramatic beauty and encounter the lively capital of Belfast on a 4-day/3-night post-tour extension to Northern Ireland.
