Meet your coach at your selected pick-up point. We’ll travel towards County Clare making comfort stops en-route. As you get closer to your hotel you will travel through the Burren – a unique landscape before arriving late afternoon at the Hydro hotel in Lisdoonvarna.
This morning we depart after breakfast to travel south to Bunratty Castle. Step back in time exploring the many halls and chambers of medieval Bunratty Castle, and continue to the Folk Park, made up of a collection of farmhouses from different regions of Ireland and a 19th century village street, including pub, school and general store. We’ll drive back via the spectacular coastline of Loophead via pretty coastal towns and fishing villages like Kilkee and the heritage town of Kilrush perhaps stopping off at the Lighthouse proudly perched over the Atlantic Ocean.
After Breakfast we depart and make the short trip to the fabulous Cliffs of Moher. Later we continue to the county town of Ennis, where you will have time to relax and explore at your own pace.
We’ll start the day driving through the strange beauty of the Burren, a unique rugged landscape sprinkled with meandering streams, sparkling lakes and limestone caves. Then we’ll pay a visit to the brightly painted harbour city of Galway where the winding lanes of the Latin Quarter are bursting at the seams with cosy little pubs alive with music.
This morning after breakfast and checking out, we bid farewell to County Clare and join the coach for the journey home. On the way we’ll stop off at the medieval town of Limerick – home to King John’s Castle where eight hundred years of dramatic local history is brought to life before returning back to our original pick-up point.
