Ireland’s dazzling coastal beauty takes center stage on this magical, 10-night journey! Begin in the east in dynamic Dublin. Then, head westward with stops in Galway and Cong before exploring the breathtaking, untamed Wild Atlantic Way. See Achill Island’s moors and mountains, admire Connemara’s glacier-carved landscape and watch lively dogs herding sheep. Next, venture north on a less explored route to the hidden gem, County Donegal. Be awed by spectacular Slieve League, Ireland’s highest sea cliffs, and see Arranmore Island by land and water. From there, travel into Northern Ireland to discover the vibrant walled city of Derry and Giant’s Causeway, a natural wonder of interlocking basalt columns. This well-rounded, small-group experience features visits to two 19th-century castles, plus lectures on Irish literature and art, a music and dance performance, and a culinary tour. Enjoy stays at deluxe and first-class hotels, including a family-owned castle estate, and a generous meal plan with wine at dinner.
