Vacations to Ireland should include lush, green landscapes; visits to historic and religious sights; remains from medieval times; and authentic Irish food. All of this and more are offered on this amazing Ireland tour—with overnights in Dublin, Ballina, Galway, Limerick, Tralee, Waterford, and Belfast.

As you’d expect on an Ireland tour, you’ll see spectacular scenery. The 668-foot Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s west coast offer breathtaking views of rugged cliffs dropping into the ocean. Witness sparkling seascapes, mountains dotted with brightly colored farmhouses, and a breathtaking panorama of the Lakes of Killarney as you drive the Ring of Kerry, a 100-mile panoramic drive. The Aran Islands offer limestone rock, rugged cliffs, and a variety of wildflowers. On the largest Aran Island, Inishmore, visit Dun Aengus, one of Europe’s most spectacular and dramatic prehistoric stone forts.

Other historical sights on this Ireland tour include Kylemore Abbey, a massive castle acquired by the Benedictine nuns, and Glendalough, the Christian monastic site founded by St. Kevin. Learn about Irish history on your visit to the Strokestown House, a restored 1740s mansion with its original furnishings and fabrics, splendid gardens, and Famine Museum.

You’ll also get a taste of Irish life when you visit a sheep farm, where you’ll learn to make scones and then eat them. Then, sample a classic Irish Coffee at the very place where the first one was served in the 1940s after a group of Americans stepped of Pan Am Flying Boat in Foynes. Or how about lunch at one of the Aran Islands’ oldest and most traditional pubs or a dinner at a local pub on Dingle peninsula? All of these are special treats offered by Globus to bring authentic experiences to your Ireland vacation. Travel via train from Dublin to Belfast for three nights. With a hop-on/hop-off sightseeing tour, see the city’s attractions. Also visit the Titanic Experience to learn more about this ship and its ill-fated maiden voyage. All services in Belfast, including Local Host assistance, are provided by Globus. It’s a perfect way to end this amazing Ireland tour!
