Itinerario

Giorno 1

Da Dublino vi dirigerete a Sud verso Cork, con una sosta nella cittadina storica di Cahir. Visiterete il Castello di Blarney per poi esplorare la magnifica costa di West Cork: un alternarsi di spiagge sabbiose e cale rocciose. Trascorrerete la notte a Kinsale, suggestivo villaggio di pescatori.

Giorno 2

Da Kinsale visiterete Cobh, l’ultimo porto da cui salpò il Titanic. Seguirete la costa lungo “la via del rame” fino a Waterford, la città più antica d’Irlanda. Potrete scoprire la storia vichinga di questa città o visitare la fabbrica di cristallo di Waterford. Vi dirigerete poi a Kilkenny per la notte.

Giorno 3

Un po’ di tempo libero per visitare Kilkenny e il suo castello, poi si parte per il Nord, verso i monti di Wicklow. Questo parco nazionale è teatro di uno dei più spettacolari scenari montani, con splendide passeggiate e un affascinante monastero a Glendalough. Da qui a Dublino ci vorranno pochi minuti.

Itinerario (English)

Day 1

  • Wander the heritage town of Cahir and its impressive castle
  • Kiss the Blarney Stone in the grounds of Blarney Castle
  • Savour the sights and sounds of Kinsale, a fishing village well known for its charming beauty

Departing Dublin, you travel south towards Cork, through the lush farming counties of Kildare, Laois and Tipperary. Our first stop is the heritage town of Cahir, where its impressive castle towers over an island in the River Suir.

You continue to Blarney, on the outskirts of Cork, where you have time to wander the castle grounds and go for a woodland stroll. You may even get a chance to kiss the famous Blarney Stone and receive the ‘gift of the gab’!

In the afternoon, you glide along the beautiful coastline south of Cork before arriving in Kinsale. This charming little fishing village is your overnight stop, with all its local restaurants and lively pubs. Enjoy your free evening whilst exploring the narrow streets and brightly coloured houses.

Day 2

  • See where the Titanic made its last fateful port of call before its ill-fated maiden voyage
  • Follow the rugged “Copper Coast” to Waterford, Ireland’s most ancient city
  • Discover Ireland’s Viking heritage or marvel at the exquisite craftsmanship in the famous Waterford Crystal factory

Leaving Kinsale in the morning, you make your way to the historic port town of Cobh. This was the last port of call for the Titanic on its infamous maiden voyage. After exploring the stories of Ireland’s past, you head east along the Copper Coast, a Unesco Geopark famed for its beauty and intricate histories.

You continue until you reach Waterford, Ireland’s oldest city founded by Vikings in the 9th century. Survey the brilliant craftsmanship at the Waterford Crystal factory, explore the selection of superb museums or wander the Viking Triangle on foot.

In the late afternoon, you travel north from Waterford to Kilkenny. This town is a vibrant place with a thriving pub and restaurant culture. After spending the evening here you’re certain to understand why people voted it Ireland’s friendliest city!

Day 3

  • Roam Kilkenny Castle and its impressive craft centres
  • Traverse the Wicklow Mountains and the majestic national park, known as “the Garden of Ireland”
  • Witness the ancient structures of Glendalough, from the distinct high crosses to the 6th century monastic site

In the morning, you have free time to explore the attractions of Kilkenny.

You then head north into the Wicklow Mountains, where you’ll be impressed by the National Park’s steep granite mountains.

You follow the winding paths to Glendalough, site of an awe-inspiring 6th century monastery. This offers a perfect opportunity to capture a photograph of the verdant natural setting and the round tower of the monastery. After this, you head through the centre of the National Park to cross the famous Sally Gap, before descending the short distance back to Dublin.

Recensioni

Above and beyond tour guide

Joanne Grant Mason Posted on 28/05/2016

Thanks Alan for a wonderful tour and for going above and beyond the call of duty. We just got home from visiting Ireland, Scotland and England and wanted to send a shout out to Alan ONeill for truly being a gentleman and helping us out. The tour was beautiful and we enjoyed it very much but, what really stood out was our guide, Alan. At the end of the tour, my husband and I needed to get to the airport as we were flying out early the next morning to Edinburgh so my husband asked Alan if we could be dropped off near the airport. Even though this was out of the way for Alan, he dropped off the other passengers and then drove us to a stop close to the airport to catch a bus which would take us directly there. Unfortunately, we only had so much euros left and the bus would only take cash therefore, Alan gave us back most of his tip in order that we would have enough cash to cover the bus cost. We were very impressed with Alans generosity and will not forget his kindness. Thanks again Alan, you truly are one of the great ones. All the best, Joanne and Grant Mason

Alloggio

Dove si trova questo tour durante la notte?

Come funziona la sistemazione?

Il tuo tour esclude la sistemazione; ma quando prenoti, puoi chiederci di prenotare un alloggio locale per te, oppure puoi scegliere di prenotare il tuo alloggio nei luoghi notturni.


Voglio che Rabbie's prenoti il mio alloggio, cosa succede ora?

Una volta prenotato il tour, prenoteremo tutto il tuo alloggio e il tuo autista ti lascerà con i padroni di casa. Pagherai direttamente il tuo alloggio. La maggior parte non accetta carte di credito, quindi preparati a pagare in contanti.

Domande Frequenti

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

How do you cater for people with accessibility needs?

We aim to accommodate everyone. To read more information on how we do this, click here to go to our accessibility guide.

Do you take children on your tours?

We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.

You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.

How much time do I get off the bus?

We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance.

What is ABTOT?

You're protected by ABTOT when you chose to let us reserve your accommodation on a multi-day tour. This means you can claim back anything you've paid us if we become bankrupt. Read our terms and conditions for more information.

I have more questions, who can help me?
