Stroll through this 1,100-year-old Viking town and admire Rodney's Tower, still in use, and see the exquisite treasures in the museum.

Or enjoy the beautiful Irish countryside as you pass majestic abbey ruins, stroll through quaint villages and see remnants of Viking heritage.

 

Day 3

Cork (Cobh), Ireland ~ 8 AM to 8 PM

Cheerful Cork sprawls about the River Lee in one of Ireland's most stunning settings. Bridges crisscross the city leading to landmarks like St. Anne's Church and the Old City Gaol, where you'll see the 19th century prisoners' graffiti. Make time to kiss the Blarney Stone in Blarney Castle.

 

Day 4

Glengarriff, Ireland ~ 8 AM to 5 PM

Far away from Ireland’s cosmopolitan urban centers, nestled deep in Bantry Bay, Glengarriff offers all the joys of the Irish countryside, from the dramatic beauty of its coastline to quirky cultural distinctions like a nature walk through the private gardens of a local family. Set out on a “seafari” in search of seal colonies and white-tailed sea eagles, or experience rural life on a visit to a family-owned farm. For a more conventional Irish experience, travel through the verdant Irish hills to popular tourist destinations like Blarney Castle, the Jameson Distillery and Ireland’s second city, Cork.

 

Day 5

Galway, Ireland ~ 8 AM to 4 PM

From shopping and culture to castles and cliffs, the city of Galway and its surroundings offer a wide array of fascinating experiences. In town, visit An Taibdearc – the national Irish language theater of Ireland – or learn about the area’s history at the Galway City Museum. Venture into the countryside to take in the dramatic Cliffs of Moher, which are more than 700 feet high and home to 29 species of seabirds. Wrap up the day at a pub featuring traditional Irish music.

 

Day 6

Londonderry, United Kingdom ~ 10 AM to 7 PM

One of the oldest continuously inhabited places in Ireland, Londonderry traces its roots to the 6th century. Walls from the 17th century still fortify the city center where you will find St. Columb’s Cathedral, built in 1633. Take a stroll across the River Foyle on the newly constructed Peace Bridge, or enjoy gorgeous views of the Irish countryside on a visit to the Sperrin Mountains. The geological marvel known as the Giant’s Causeway lies just east of the city.

 

Day 7

Liverpool, United Kingdom ~ 10 AM to 11 PM

A wealthy port city since the 19th century, Liverpool is noted for its rich architectural heritage, diverse communities and innovative infrastructure, as well as being the birthplace of The Beatles. The history of the city as one of the world’s greatest seaports unfolds at The Merseyside Maritime Museum, and the exhibitions at The Beatles Story take you on a journey through the lives and times of the Fab Four. For a spectacular panoramic view of the city, climb the tower of Liverpool Cathedral.

 

Day 8

Holyhead, United Kingdom ~ 8 AM to 8 PM

Enjoy the beautiful Welsh countryside with its charming towns and farms and visit the imposing Caernarfon Castle begun by Edward I in 1283. This mighty fortress was a residence and seat of government as well as a military stronghold. The current Prince of Wales received his title here in 1969.

 

Day 9

Douglas, United Kingdom ~ 8 AM to 6 PM

The capital of the Isle of Man, Douglas lies on a beautiful bay backed by wild moors and rugged glens. A horse-drawn tram ride is a great way to see the considerable sights. Don't miss the fascinating collection of Viking artifacts in the Manx Museum.
