From the first day, when you land in Dublin and are immediately whisked away to the historic grounds of Slane Castle and its lauded new Slane Distillery before touring the ancient Boyne Valley and tucking in for the night at Dunboyne Castle & Spa, to the final day, spent at the fascinating monastic site Clonmacnoise in County Offaly and walking the grounds of Birr Castle before checking into one of Ireland's most famous golf resorts, the K Club, you'll see more of Ireland in one week than you ever thought possible.
Other highlights include two nights in Northern Ireland, at Belfast's Europa Hotel and Derry's Maldron Hotel, with a Black Cab tour of Belfast and a walking tour of Derry's famous murals; two nights at Lough Eske, an honest-to-goodness castle in Co. Donegal; a visit to a Kearney, a restored historic fishing village on the Ards Peninsula; natural wonders like the Giants Causeway and the Slieve League cliffs; wondrous sites like Donegal's Fanad Lighthouse and Sligo's Lissadel House; and one night at the uber-trendy Glasshouse Hotel, on the banks of Sligo's Garravogue River.
