3 Night Castle Stay & Tour
3 Night Castle Stay and Tour – a luxurious private chauffeured vacation package in the South West of Ireland
Day 1 — Airport Meet & Greet
Meet on arrival at Dublin / Shannon Airport. Travel southwards in the direction of Limerick and Adare. Stop at Adare for photos of this very quaint picturesque village of thatched cottages and ancient monastic heritage. On towards Newcastlewest for visit of it’s superb Castle. Continue towards Ballyseede Castle for overnight.
Day 2 – Private Tour of Dingle & Slea Head Drive
A private tour of Dingle & Slea Head drive for breathtaking scenery on the Wild Atlantic Way. Stop when you want and for as long as you wish to enjoy this amazing landscape. In my 20 odd years touring Ireland, the Dingle Peninsula is my favourite of all. Green fields, white sandy beaches and the rugged Wild Atlantic Way. Sheep, seagulls, donkeys and Dingle harbour which even has its own resident dolphin called ‘fungie’. The dolphin is in the headlines at the moment as is gone missing. He has been here for 37 years. Dingle is very colorful with quirky shops and great restaurants.
See where the filming of ‘Ryan’s Daughter‘ took place on Slea Head Drive. It has amazing views onto the Blasket Islands in the Atlantic ocean, & it is said that on a clear day the statue of liberty can be seen from here!
Listen to the Gaelic language being spoken. Visit Gallarus Oratory and hear all about St Brendan’s voyage. . . he discovered America before Columbus. Return via ‘The Conor Pass’ with it’s stunning views in mountainous landscape overlooking Tralee Bay on the Wild Atlantic Way. The road that descends the mountain is very narrow but your local driver is well used to it! You just sit back and take it all in. A very memorable day.
