Tour highlights

Travel South By Train

An overnight tour to Ireland's mid western capital - Limerick, the Treaty City, on the banks of the majestic river Shannon. This tour includes four star standard Hotel accommodation in the city center and a full Irish Breakfast. In the evening you are free to explore Limerick: see the locations where the film "Angela's Ashes" was made and perhaps have a pint in one of the city's many traditional pubs.

The next day Railtours Ireland will take you to visit medieval Bunratty Castle, then on to a charming pub for a lunch stop on the remote Atlantic coastal village, and then to the Cliffs of Moher. You will travel through the Burren, around Black Head and on to Galway City along the shores of Galway Bay.

Bunratty Castle and Cliffs of Moher Tour

  • Enjoy your Full Irish Breakfast at leisure, then join your group for your day touring.
  • After the visit to Bunratty Castle and Folk park, make your way to Co. Clare. There is a lunch stop at O’ Connor’s Pub in Doolin before arriving at the Cliffs of Moher, among the highest sea cliffs in Europe. There is plenty of time to visit Ireland’s second most popular tourist attraction and your host will advise you of the departure time.
  • From there, take the coast road for much of the way to Galway, with time for photos along The Burren, Ireland's famous national park. The word 'Burren' comes from the Irish Language, it means ‘rocky place’. It is a unique lunar landscape of limestone which was described in 1649 by one of Oliver Cromwell’s men as: “No tree to hang a man, no water deep enough to drown him and no soil deep enough to bury him”. Today the Burren is noted for its diverse Flora with few parallels elsewhere in Ireland or indeed, Europe.
  • Continue along the coast road to Black Head, passing the quaint coastal villages of Ballyvaughan and Kinvara, before joining the main road to Galway. 
  • Free time in Galway for shopping or to grab a bite to eat before returning by train to Dublin.

End of Journey: Returning to Dublin Heuston at 09:45pm.
