Day 1 Arrive in Dublin Airport after a over night flight.

From Dublin Airport we drive to Powerscourt Estate and gardens where you can take a leisurely walk through the Japanese and Italian themed gardens.

As we leave Powerscourt we drive thought the tiny picturesque village of Enniskillen with its beautiful floral displays and traditional cottages.

Our next stop is Johnnie fox’s pub the highest pub in Ireland. You will have time to get a Irish coffee or a pint of Guinness.

We drive the Sally Gap down to Glendalough, which meaning (“Valley of two lakes”) is a glacial valley in County Wicklow, Ireland, renowned for an Early Medieval monastic settlement founded in the 6th century by St Kevin. Next we make our way down to the medieval City of kilkenny where you will spend 2 nights.

Day 2 Kilkenny is a medieval City in Southeast Ireland. Its grand Kilkenny Castle was built in 1195 by Norman occupiers.

The town has deep religious roots and many well-preserved churches and monasteries, including imposing St. Canice’s Cathedral and the Black Abbey Dominican priory, both from the 13th century. It’s also a crafts hub, with shops along its winding lanes selling pottery, paintings and jewellery.

Day 3 We say goodbye to Kilkenny City and drive to The Rock of Cashel. Perched on an elevated limestone plain, overlooking the golden vale, it is an incredible sight to behold. Most of the buildings date back to the 12th and 15th centuries.

From the Rock Of Cashel we drive to the lovely village of Blarney to visit Blarney Castle, where you can kiss the Blarney Stone – and for seven years you will have the gift of the gab! We will have plenty of time to indulge in the tax free shopping haven of Blarney Woollen Mills and craft shop.

After Blarney Castle we drive to Kerry for our overnight stay in Killarney, Ireland’s top tourist town! Enjoy your evening in one of the many amazing restaurants, have a taste of the local Guinness and wile away the hours listening to some great traditional Irish music in the local pubs.

Day 4 From Killarney we start our 180 kilometer journey around The Ring of Kerry. We leave killarney and drive to Killorglin. Every year , starting on the 10th of August, Killorglin holds the three day Puck Fair Festival,the oldest traditional fair in Ireland.

As we leave Killorglin we will stop and enjoy the views of the Dingle Peninsula and take a photo or two.

We’ll continue our travel through beautiful Irish villages like Waterville, where Charlie Chaplin loved to visit, hence the statue which was unveiled in 1998.

Once we’ve wound our way along the coastal roads our next stop is the Killarney National Park, home of the beautiful Lakes of Killarney to Moll’s Gap and Ladies View where we might be lucky enough to see leprechauns at the leprechaun crossing!

From Ladies View we make our way to Torc Waterfall, a 18 metre high waterfall. After a full day of traveling we’ll have another overnight stay in Killarney to enjoy the nightlife.

Day 5 We leave Killarney and make our way to Ireland’s no. 1 tourist destination – the Cliffs of Moher, rising over 700 feet above the Atlantic ocean with magnificent views and walking trails.

After the Cliffs of Moher we’ll make our way to The Burren – a breathtaking natural wonder. From the Burren we drive to Galway City.

Connemara National Park is a vast expanse of mountains, bogs, heathland and lakes. The park is also home to a herd of Connemara ponies.

Tour Reviews

February 6, 2020

My wife and I visited Ireland in Sept 2019 with the intention of touring the country, since this was our first visit, and to celebrate our adult daughter’s birthday, who also traveled with us. We arranged for a private chauffeur service through James Doran of Kilkenny City (which is a city worth visiting more than once), who was recommended to us from a friend who used his company the year before for a slightly larger party of travelers. We used James for seven continuous days, though I understand he will do shorter or longer engagements. Needless to say, we were extremely pleased with the services of James. He met us in Dublin and we started our tour of southern and western Ireland. We had spoken beforehand about the types of things we wanted to do and see; and were not disappointed. James lives in Kilkenny City and, it seems, knows all the backroads around the country. We certainly traveled on roads “never before seen by an American”, visited both the normal tourist sites, plus out of the way artisans, pubs, castles, local restaurants, and vistas that those on tourist buses sadly bypass. James would arrange his schedule around ours, pick us up at a mutually agreed upon time (he was always prompt to the minute), took us wherever we wanted to go, and dropped us off at our next hotel/country house. We were able to stop and look at anything that caught our eye and could spend as much time at any revue we pleased. During the car ride, James maintained an excellent sense of humor while talking about local culture, history, and sharing the local language colloquialisms. My wife kept a diary of Irish phrases which was a special treat. A more pleasant experience of our first visit to Ireland could not be found. Our next visit will certainly include the expert and reliable services of James and his company.
