Overview

Operated by ?

No rabbit’s foot, horseshoe, or four-leaf clover can bring the good fortune that awaits on this grand vacation to Ireland. On our most in-depth tour of this rolling green paradise, you’ll experience the luck of the Irish at every scenic turn. Making a full loop around the Emerald Isle—including Northern Ireland—you’ll see the cliffs, castles, and thatched-roof countryside Eire is known for as well as its coastal ports, medieval villages, and soulful cities. Visit the Titanic Experience in Belfast where the ill-fated ship was built, and soak in the atmosphere in the lively pubs of Dublin where Irish history is still the topic du jour. Your stroke of luck continues as you stop to bake scones at a quaint Irish farm, take a private boat to the seal-populated Garinish Island, enjoy an Irish Coffee demonstration, and meet the legendary crystal makers in Waterford. The fun that awaits is crystal clear.
