Helpful Travel Tips and Hints

Day 1: Depart the United States and relax on an overnight flight to Dublin. Ireland is five hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time and most flights from New York to Dublin are around 7-8 hours so you’ll want to sleep on your flight and arrive in Dublin ready to explore!

Day 2: The highlight of this adventure is that you will have complete freedom over where you go throughout your 6 nights in Ireland. You will fly into Dublin Airport and collect your rental car and begin your journey. Dublin is a dynamic city with several different historically significant attractions, along with a vibrant nightlife you will want to experience. Spend a day or two here and be sure to visit St. Patrick's Cathedral, Trinity College (and the Book of Kells!) and the iconic Temple Bar. The Guinness Storehouse is a unique type of tour where you finish at the Sky Bar with a pint of the delicious beer!

Days 3 and 4: Galway is one of the most interesting cities on the west coast that you will want to explore. You will want to spend at least two nights here if you are coming from Dublin since the drive will take about two hours. You will be able to visit the Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, the Burren or you can check out Kylemore Abbey for a taste of history. The town of Connemara is a quaint town filled with shops and boutiques that you can find authentic Irish souvenirs for your family and friends back home! While in Galway you are also going to want to visit the stunning St. Nicholas’ Collegiate Church and the Galway Cathedral.

Days 5 and 6: Along the Wild Atlantic Way you will find countless spots where you can stop and admire the scenic views of the west coast of Ireland. The Cliffs of Moher offer visitors the most spectacular views of the Aran Islands and Galway Bay. Limerick is home to the legendary Treaty Stone along with King John's Castle.

Day 7: If you choose to drive further south you will arrive in the exciting city of Killarney. Explore the breathtaking Ring of Kerry or Dingle Peninsula for some of Ireland’s purest beauty. Kinsale is nearby and is a beautiful waterfront area, perfect for the summer months. You might want to head a bit east today so you are closer to Dublin airport for your flight home tomorrow.

Day 8: Depart Ireland today! You will return your trusty rental car at the airport today. Happy flying!
