Day 2: Kilkenny | Kilkenny Tour | Beer Tasting
Head to historic Kilkenny for a guided walking tour along its Medieval Mile, stretching from cathedral to castle.

Spend some time browsing as you please before dinner in your hotel. (B, D)

Day 3: Blarney Castle | Killarney
Visit the Marine Bar in Dungarvan in a CIE Tours Exclusive, and enjoy a drink with some traditional music in this centuries-old, family-run pub. Travel on to visit Blarney Castle to kiss the famous stone, which legend promises will bestow the “Gift of the Gab” or explore the beautiful gardens. Pass through County Cork to the lively town of Killarney – a draw for visitors to Ireland since the 18th century – where you will have free time after dinner to explore some of its friendly pubs, many with live music.

Day 4: Dingle Peninsula | Celtic Whiskey Bar Experience
Visit Moriarty’s in the Gap of Dunloe, a CIE Tours preferred shopping partner, before heading out to the Dingle Peninsula. You may know this beautiful region from films like “Ryan’s Daughter” and “Far & Away”. Visit a farm for an immersion into traditional farming life and watch skilled sheepdogs demonstrate their talents at herding. Take some free time to explore the charms of Dingle town. In the evening, head to the Celtic Whiskey Bar in Killarney for a tasting, chocolate pairing, and dinner. (B, D)

Sean’s Bar is not only the oldest in Ireland; dating back to 900 AD, it’s the oldest in Europe, according to the Guinness Book of Records. The sloped floors (often covered with sawdust), candlelight, and turf fire pay nostalgic tribute to this pub’s rich history. Enjoy dinner in your Athlone hotel this evening. (B, D)
