Here follows a suggested itinerary, we can start and finish at any airport and we will customize a very special tour for you to suit you every need.

Day 1 – Arrival and Transfer to Hotel

img
img

The best Irish airport to fly in & out of for this South West Ireland Private Sightseeing tour is easily Shannon.

It is the easiest Airport in the world to negotiate and certainly the friendliest Irish airport we deal with. When you disembark you will be brought to the main airport terminal where you will first be met with passport control.

You will then proceed to collect your luggage before walking through customs. After that, you come through the arrivals door where your private chauffeur driver guide will be waiting.

You will know our guy straight away, he will the guy with the biggest and most welcoming smile!

We arrive at Shannon Airport nice & early, typically 6am/7am. You could then take a short drive to one of Ireland’s finest castle hotels, Dromoland Castle for breakfast. With an extraordinary history stretching back to the 5th Century, Dromoland Castle was originally the ancestral home of one of the few families of Gaelic Royalty; direct descendants of Brian Boru, the High King of Ireland.

The breakfast here is truly amazing and believe me when I say it is fit for royalty. This is, of course, optional. You pay on-site on the day approximately €25.00 – €30.00 per person but so worth it and a fantastic way to start your vacation. Alternatively, we could drive to your chosen hotel and check in if possible. Generally, check-in is not until 2PM but we will inform them of your arrival and we will be given priority should a room become available earlier.

Overnight in Dromoland/Adare/Limerick, choice of hotel:

5* Dromoland Castle, Adare Manor, The Savoy Hotel Limerick

4* The Strand Hotel Limerick, The Clarion Hotel & Suites Limerick, Dunraven Arms, Adare

Bunratty Castle & Folkpark

img
img
img

Later we will drive to Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and the Blarney Woollen Mills Bunratty store. Bunratty is one of Ireland’s most visited attractions, where you can experience the Irish way of life centuries ago.

Built in 1425, Bunratty Castle was restored in 1954 to its former medieval glory with the addition of 15th and 16th-century furnishings, arts and crafts. The Bunratty Folk Park experience captures the sights, sounds, tastes, and scents of this enchanting place as you stroll from house to house or around the charming village street complete with school, post office, doctors house, hardware shop, printers and of course McNamara’s pub! You will have time to explore the Woollen Mills for all authentic Irish Produce such as Irish linens, lace, and crystal. All at Duty-Free prices too!

The first day will take about 5/6 hours and, from our experience, the jet lag will most definitely be setting in, and so we will return to your accommodation without delay. Then you can relax and explore your hotel and its surrounding area, and perhaps take a needed nap to keep you fit for the days ahead.

Day 2 – Cliffs of Moher and The Burren

img
img
img
img

We depart our hotel after breakfast for the wonderful Cliffs of Moher & the Burren. Rising from the sea to a height of 214 meters and running relentlessly for 5 miles, generations of visitors have not failed to be impressed by what many regard as their 8th wonder of the world.

The Cliffs are just beautiful and there are great walks here. As you and your snap happy camera take in the magnificent view, you can feel the full force of the Atlantic Ocean from the floor up. Some souvenir and craft shopping can be done here also.

When we are finished at the Cliffs we then travel along the famous Galway Bay into the typical Irish town of Ballyvaughan. Here we can have some nice lunch along the way.

Then it’s on to the nearby Burren Region, a limestone plateau with its treasure trove of geological and archaeological interests.

The Burren is home to many of Ireland’s most famous prehistoric monuments. After lunch we can visit Birds of Prey at Aillwee Caves, a personal favourite of mine, where you will see Falcons, Eagles, Owls, & Hawks all hunting for their dinner!

This is a great show that lasts 50 minutes. Next up is the Dolmen Graves which go back to 3600 B.C. These Neolithic graves are very typical in County Clare. We will then drive through the rugged Clare countryside and back to your accommodation.
