Introduction To Ireland


This guided Ireland tour is an ideal introduction to the Emerald Isle for first-time visitors who have limited time. You’ll experience some of Ireland’s most magnificent scenery, as well as its most famous towns. You’ll start and end in Dublin, with overnight stays in Ennis, Killarney, and Waterford. Highlights of this tour include the 668-foot Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s west coast, where you’ll savor the breathtaking views of these rugged cliffs dropping into the ocean, and the Ring of Kerry, a 100-mile panoramic drive through rugged and magnificent landscapes. Words cannot capture the magnificence of these natural beauties; you must witness them in person!

You’ll also enjoy guided tours of the House of Waterford Crystal, where you’ll see the highly-skilled artisans at work in the production of this famous crystal, and the Irish National Stud in Kildare, home to thoroughbred champions. Plus, Globus has arranged special experiences to give you a true local perspective. For example, you’ll enjoy coffee and scones that you’ll bake at Rathbaun Farm, a picturesque thatched farmhouse where you’ll learn about Ireland’s sheep-farming practices. You’ll also enjoy an Irish Coffee demonstration in Waterford.

From the scenic beauty to the charming experiences, this Ireland guided tour is sure to delight all of your senses!
