Ireland Tour with my Grandfather

We started our journey from India and reached Dublin (the capital of Ireland) in 10 hours. We hired a car for sightseeing, which I felt was much better than a bus tour.

Ireland tour is an expensive tour but an affordable one. One week costs $2685 per person, including flights, food, accommodation, etc. It was a fantastic trip with busy and action-packed days.

  • Day 1: We started and ended our tour in Dublin. In Dublin, Ha’penny Bridge is famous. It’s the first pedestrian bridge built in 1816 across the Liffey River. The tour was for seven days. We reached the Ashling Hotel by the shuttle service provided by the airport. After taking a rest for a few hours, we visited River Liffey. We also experienced the Guinness Storehouse, where the ticket cost was €25 for adults, €18.5 for students and seniors, and children €16 (13-17). Other fabulous places are Christchurch Cathedral, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Custom House. Our local tour director guided this orientation of tours.
  • Day 2: We departed from Dublin and headed towards Killarney. First, we stopped in Cahir to see the castle. Then, we climbed the ramparts in Blarney Castle to enjoy the scenic beauty.
  • Day 3: We went to The Ring of Kerry to enjoy mountain and sea views. You can also go for a hike there. Must carry good walking shoes, sunscreen, and rain gear.
  • Day 4: We visited Killarney- Foynes- Cliffs of Moher- Limerick, Pan Am’s Flying Boat in Foynes. The invention of Irish coffee was a part of learning there. ‘Cliffs of Moher’, whose beauty is incomparable. It’s the most visited tourist place and our memorable part also. From here, we can see outstanding natural beauty. The Cliff is 702 feet. It’s also a specially protected area for seabirds.
  • Day 5: The destination spot was Dingle. We explored the beautiful peninsula with historical wonders. Inch Beach was our first stop. Then we went to the edge of Europe, also known as Sla Head. Don’t miss clicking the photo with Fungi (name of a Dolphin) that has been there for 30 years.
  • Day 6: We departed from Doolin village and explored moon-like terrain. Last came back to the hotel in Dublin, and our flight was at 6:00 pm.
