Ireland Explorer

Day 1: Arrive in Limerick, Ireland. There once was a traveler from…

Welcome to Ireland! The first day of your adventure gives you time to explore the lively city of Limerick, known for its warmth, authentic Irish personality, and lilting Limerick poems. Your Tour Director is available in the afternoon with freetime suggestions to point you in the right direction.

Day 2: Limerick. New Adventures on the Old Sod

Limerick is an ideal walking city and easy to navigate, particularly with your CosmosGO app in-hand. Among the sights to discover are 13th-century King John’s Castle; the Hunt Museum, housed in the elegant 18th-century Custom House; St. Mary’s Cathedral, the oldest and most historic building in Limerick and the legendary Treaty Stone. Take time to slow down and rub elbows with the locals over a pint of Guinness or an Irish coffee in one of the many pubs. (B)

Day 3: Limerick - Adare - Killarney. Irish Beauty, Killarney, and Kerry

We’ll venture from Limerick to Adare, renowned as one of Ireland’s prettiest towns. Set off on its main street, punctuated with beautiful stone buildings, thatched cottages, medieval ruins, and a picturesque village park. Take time for a morning coffee and freshly-baked scones before continuing to Killarney, the popular resort town in County Kerry. (B)

Day 4: Explore Killarney. The Town in the Park

Known for enthusiastic and welcoming people, this vibrant “Town in the Park” is a very special place to discover. Enjoy free time to browse through the shops and boutiques, or take a relaxing stroll in Killarney National Park. Log on to MyCOSMOS to pre-purchase your spot on an optional excursion to explore the
best of Killarney. (B)

Day 5: Killarney - Blarney - Dublin. Kiss the Stone of Eloquence

Experience the scenic splendor of the Kerry Mountains on the way to County Cork. Stop in Blarney, famous for its “Stone of Eloquence” - promising the “Gift of Gab” for all who kiss the Blarney Stone. Share your photos with family and friends back home on the CosmosGO app! Next, travel to Dublin, Ireland’s capital. (B)

Day 6: Dublin. In Dublin’s Fair City…

This morning, join your Tour Director for an orientation drive through statue-lined O’Connell Street, elegant
Georgian squares, past St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Oscar Wilde’s Trinity College. The rest of the day is free to explore the “Fair City.” You’ll see first-hand that Dublin is as intimate as a village and as friendly as a local Irish pub. No wonder it’s been named Europe’s friendliest city. Dublin is also a book-lover’s dream, with its legacy of Yeats, Shaw, Beckett, and Joyce. Use your CosmosGO app to find local bookstores or libraries with a comfy chair to settle into with a good book. The lively and passionate music of Ireland flows onto the streets in Dublin, and there’s a good chance you’ll find the perfect pub to tip a Guinness with the locals. Why not pre-purchase your optional dinner and a visit to the Guinness Storehouse for a pint of the “black stuff.” (B)
