The Emerald Isle puts its best foot forward in this iconic exploration of its breathtaking landscapes and whimsical charm. We kick off our epic journey along the walled gardens and rambling walks of Powerscourt Gardens - its sweeping terraces, ornamental lakes and over 200 variations of trees and shrubs ensure it befits its status as one of the most beautiful gardens in Ireland. Enjoy a Welcome Reception this evening to get to know your fellow travellers.Welcome Reception

Day 2 Dublin Sightseeing

Lyrics and legends await this morning as we join a Local Specialist on a fascinating city tour to visit St. Patrick's Cathedral, where Jonathan Swift was once installed as Dean. We admire the colourful doorways in the stately Georgian Squares and stroll along the cobbled courtyard of Trinity College to see the ornate Book of Kells. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure to soak up the charisma of this city. Wander along Grafton Street and see its lively performers, stop for a pint of the 'Black Stuff' in Temple Bar or relax in the 'Playground of Dublin', Phoenix Park.Full Breakfast

We leave the bright lights and warm hospitality of Dublin behind for County Kilkenny where we delve into the history of a 'lost' medieval town - Newtown Jerpoint. Take a step back in time to the 12th century and wander through its remains that are said to be the final resting place of St. Nicholas, before joining the O'Connells at their home, Belmore House. Embrace the peaceful rural setting - the perfect backdrop to a traditional Irish Be My Guest lunch. Inspired by Irish food and the warmth of the locals, we continue south to the lively city of Cork, enjoying an evening at leisure to discover its sights, sounds and flavours.Full Breakfast, Be My Guest Dining
