The castle hosts one of the best collections of medieval ornament, a real jump into history. We reach Limerick for sightseeing and overnight.
Cork - One of the most beautiful places in the World, Dingle Peninsula

Appointed “one of the most beautiful places in the world” by National Geographic and voted among the top 100 destinations by TripAdvisor, the Peninsula it’s a real nature masterpiece. The peninsula is covered with over 2000 stoned pillars from the Neolithic period. We check into our hotel in Cork.

The excursion starts in Kinsale, among the most picturesque and popular locations on the southwestern coast. We then reach Skibbereen, famous for its colorful buildings and great community spirit. Skibbereen is also known for the human tribute paid over the Big Famine: To this is dedicated a Memorial. Before leading back to the hotel, we move further down to the coast, enjoying the view of white beaches, wild rivers, lakes, hills, and the forest of Lough Hyre. Based on the time left, we visit Cobh (previously called Queenstown), a pretty little town built on the hill of Great Island by Cork’s port.
Dublin - Experience Irish Whisky in the Jameson Distillery
Visit Cork city, the 3rd biggest city in Ireland, has always been an important maritime port. We start with the Jameson distillery for our whiskey experience: Travel through whiskey’s Irish history, enjoy a tasting tour, and learn how to blend your own whiskey. The next stop is the town of Kilkenny, which used to be Ireland’s capital city over the Middle Age. Yet today, the city hosts a considerable medieval heritage. Visit the city and the Kilkenny Castle (c.1146-1219). After Cork, we will drive to Dublin. Overnight in Dublin.

Overnight in Belfast.
Belfast - Explore the most astonishing places in Northern Ireland and UNESCO Heritage Site, Giant's Causeway
Early start: off to Giant’s Causeway, among the most astonishing places in Northern Ireland. More than 40,000 ancient basalt columns, hexagonally shaped, rising from the sea, over the coast, beaten by the wind and the waves. This incredible rocky formation is so evocative and precious that it was declared UNESCO Heritage Site in 1986. We move then to Londonderry. Laying down the River Foyle, Derry is a genuinely enchanting town with pastel-colored houses, churches’ pinnacles, and steep old-town streets, all surrounded by medieval walls. These walls are one of the few examples in Europe (and unique in Ireland) of a completed city wall, holding the city for more than a mile. Back to Belfast for free time.
