Multi-Day Tours from Dublin
By Viator, August 2014
With 2 or 3 days to spend you’ll be spoiled for choice, as tours run to every corner of the country, but to make the most of your sightseeing time, concentrate on one area at a time. Driving around the iconic Ring of Kerry is a popular choice, stopping at sights like Cork, the Killarney National Park and Blarney Castle along the way.
West Ireland also has a wealth of attractions that can be explored on a short trip, like the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher, the stark landscape of the Burren and the rolling hills of Connemara National Park. Alternatively, head to Belfast in Northern Ireland, from where you can walk the Giant’s Causeway, a jaw-dropping UNESCO World Heritage site, or brave the precarious Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge that links the mainland to Carrick-a-Rede island.
With more time to spend, you’ll be able to travel further afield, spend longer exploring your favorite regions or combine train, coach and jeep travel. Bump your tour up to 4, 5 or even 8 days and you can add extras like a boat trip to the Gaelic speaking Aran Islands on the west coast or the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Skellig Islands in the south. You’ll also get chance to visit Dingle, Limerick and Cork on route; take a detour around Slea Head, the westernmost point of Ireland; or stop off at landmark sights like Bunratty Castle or Dunluce Castle.
