Envelop yourself in the rich culture and rugged beauty of Ireland on a journey through County Kerry. Delve deep into Irish traditions during your seven-night stay in Killarney, and explore the Kerry Gaeltacht, one of the country’s regions that nurtures Irish language and culture. Hear about history and local legends during a carriage ride through Killarney National Park, watch Irish singers and dancers, learn about the ancient Celts, kiss the Blarney Stone and sing along to famous Irish tunes. No visit to Ireland’s western coast is complete without a drive along the Wild Atlantic Way, as the untamed coastline is known; explore the beautiful Dingle Peninsula and discover the history of the Blasket Islands. Sail across Bantry Bay to admire the rare and exotic plants on Garnish Island. Along the way, experience a whiskey tasting, an elegant afternoon tea in Kenmare and a specially prepared farm-to-fork meal. Enjoy first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan featuring wine with dinner on this small-group program.
