Day 1 Itinerary

On arrival in Dublin Airport reclaim your baggage and enter the Arrivals Hall. Here in the Arrivals Hall you will meet your Professional Irish Driver-Guide (one person). There will be 3 Group transfers this morning between 0700 am & 1200 noon. Board your luxury air - conditioned coach and make the short transfer to Clayton Hotel Burlington Road in the heart of Dublin City.

Check in starts from 15:00 and you can store your luggage at the hotel prior to check in. At 14:00 you will depart on a Panoramic Tour of Dublin City visiting Trinity College founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I on the site of an Augustinian monastery. Trinity College is also home to the Book of Kells, which is the most richly decorated of Ireland's medieval illuminated manuscripts. The book contains the four gospels in Latin. Some of the dyes used were imported from as far as the Middle East.

You will also visit the Guinness Storehouse at St. James's Gate for a tour of the world famous brewery and afterwards enjoy a perfect pint of Guinness in the Gravity Bar, which is located at the top of a glass tower that commands spectacular views of Dublin City and County in every direction.

Included Today

Day 2 Itinerary

After some much needed sleep and a hearty full Irish breakfast you will depart for Glendalough in the spectacular Wicklow Mountains. The steep wooded slopes of Glendalough, the "valley of the two lakes", harbour one of Ireland's most atmospheric monastic settlements. Sacked time and again by the Vikings, it nevertheless flourished for over 600 years.

Return to the Fair City of Dublin in the afternoon. You will have the afternoon free to explore and shop in Dublin and we would also suggest you take a stroll up Grafton Street.

This morning after breakfast you will depart for Limerick via Galway. Free time in Galway City, known as the "City of the Tribes".

Continue south along the shores of Galway Bay before travelling down the Wild Atlantic Way to County Clare. Here you will see the Burren, which is Gaelic for rocky land - an apt name for this vast limestone plateau. In the 1640's, Cromwell's surveyor described it as "a savage land, yielding neither water enough to drown a man, nor tree to hang him, nor soil enough to bury".

On the Atlantic coast you will stand on the dramatic 214 metres (704 feet) high and 8 kilometres (5 miles) long Cliffs of Moher to gaze out on the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean. Travel onto Limerick City. Tonight you will overnight at the Clayton Hotel Limerick overlooking the banks of the broad majestic Shannon.

Reviews of this tour

Elizabeth Davidson

July 2019  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We traveled as a couple in late June 2019. Touring is a great way to see the country. Ben, our Tour Guide and driver, was a passionate Irishman whose love for all things Irish, helped bring the Tour alive. From geology to history to agriculture and music, Ben gave us more than a drive through the country. He was a cultural guide who shared his love of his country. The countryside, towns and villages and the folk we met along the way made the journey one to remember. We were blessed with a beautiful bunch of people on the Tour which made for some lively happy times on and off the bus. This was our first Tour ever and it was a very good experience. You must be ready for the up-and-go nature of Touring; there's not much time to spend anywhere, but there are restful times to be had on the bus and the hotel accommodation was good - terrific in Dublin and good in Limerick. We would recommend the Tour to anyone wanting to see a big swathe of the country and if you're lucky enough to get Ben, that's a bonus! Thanks to all involved.

10 of us (2 couples and 6 adult children in their 20's) took the 6 day iconic tour. Ben was a very charming guide. We loved his singing and his stories. Wish we had more time at a few spots but loved this trip. Glad our flight was delayed a day so we spent more time in Dublin.

June 2019  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

We had an absolutely incredible time during our 6-Day Iconic Tour of Ireland during June 2019. We began planning the trip more than 6 months in advance and Martina was very helpful during the process to include assisting us in reserving hotel rooms for additional nights. Our tour guide/driver - Kieran was amazing. Not only was he a very impressive driver as he maneuvered the charter bus around the country but his knowledge of Ireland ranged from agriculture, to industry, to economic to an amazing knowledge of Irish history to include Viking history of which I knew nothing. We were lucky to have a great group to travel with - I don't recall anyone complaining about a single thing for the entire trip which is rare when you have 22 adults together. I don't think we can give Kieran credit for the weather but we were very fortunate to have perfect weather each day so as to be comfortable and to be able to enjoy viewing the Cliffs of Moher and the Ring of Kerry as well as Blarney Caste. We didn't know anything about the monastery at Glendalough before going and I actually thought a monastery would be boring - BUT - we were blown away by this place, the history, the beauty, the spiritual feeling you couldn't help but get there. We loved it, it was worth the cost and worth the planning.

June 2019  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

I just returned with my family from the 6 Day Iconic Scenes tour and we had an amazing time! There were 8 of us in total and no one had any complaints... if you knew my family you'd realize how earth shattering this is! When looking for a tour company I looked for every review possible on MIT and was slightly skeptical at the lack of low reviews (this was my first time taking an actual tour with a guide and schedule), but in reading almost every review I took a chance on MIT and do not regret it. Our tour guide/driver was Liam Finnegan and he gets a 15/10. His passion, charisma, and knowledge are off the charts! I would select another tour of his any day of the week. Thank you MIT for a phenomenal family trip, you have 8 new fans and promoters!

Recently returned from a wonderful 6 day tour. Our driver/guide, Kieran, was outstanding in every way. I learned so much about Ireland and its history. The group was really fun together - it somehow blended seamlessly. Martina arranged everything perfectly, including our stay after the tour in Dublin. Thanks so much for a truly exhilarating time. I hope to return!

October 2018  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

My Ireland's hub and spoke tour was the perfect fit for my husband, myself and my over 80 year old mother in law who had never traveled out of country before. The fact that you only move hotels once during your 6 days makes for a more restful trip overall. Yet, you do not feel short changed in what you see; you still see Dublin, parts of the Wicklow Mountains, Galway, etc. You still hit all the high lights. It really was just perfect for us. Our guide and driver, Garry Horan, could not have been more pleasant. He made us feel very safe and comfortable with his driving skills, and with the comfort and cleanliness of the bus. He was a font of knowledge of Irish history . His humor and outgoing personality helped create a camaraderie among all the passengers on the bus, which in turn added to the wonderful experience. He made each and every passenger feel taken care of. I highly recommend this tour to one and all.

July 2017  •  6 Day Iconic Scenes

My husband and I took the 6 Day Iconic Tour and had a wonderful time. The tour itself covered everything we wanted to see and for us, it was the perfect length. My Ireland Tours was all-out professional from the start. Our driver was waiting for us at the airport, the bus was comfortable, extra bonus that all the other people on our tour were friendly and fun. And a huge shout out to our driver, Enda who was not only knowledgeable but extremely personable.

The hotels on this Irish vacation tour offer amazing quality and value to match. We are very selective in getting just the right accommodation for each specific tour and we are very proud of the selection of hotels we have put together. Some of these hotels are family-owned, just like ourselves, and we have a long standing relationship with them all.

The General Post Office

The General Post Office of Ireland The General Post Office of Ireland

The General Post Office of Ireland had many homes before finally settling on its current location of O'Connell Street, on January 6th 1818. It is most famous for housing the Irish Rebels during the Easter Rising of 1916.

The building was destroyed by fire during the uprising and was left unattended until the Irish Free State government set about restoring it. The General Post Office now acts as a visitor centre and sheds an amazing light on some of Ireland's darkest days and the country it was to become.
