Itinerary:

Take a look at the full itinerary and some of the many events and tours you can take advantage of during your Spring Break Ireland vacation. Remember, the beauty of our trip is that it provides the necessary transportation, city-center accommodations, and featured tours and events, but is flexible enough to give you the power to pick and choose what it is that you really want to do on your Spring Break. This means, if half of the group wants to check out the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, while the others spend the day shopping on O’Connell Street - that’s ok; Tenon Tours can make that happen!

Saturday: Pre-Night in Galway Available

The day is yours to experience Galway at your own pace or take advantage of the featured tour of the Connemara region, well known and loved by artists for its unspoiled beauty.

Sunday: Arrive Shannon Airport to Galway, Ireland

Arrive in the early morning at the Shannon International Airport; after collecting your baggage and clearing customs you will make your way to the transportation area where you will board your coach to Galway. Once settled in your hostel or hotel, you may want to venture out and take advantage of the half day tour to the Aran Islands, Europe’s easternmost point where Gaelic is the first language of its residents and is considered the foothold of Irish culture. If you arrived Saturday, the full day tour to the Aran Islands may be for you.

Monday: Galway

Wake up at your leisure this morning. The day is yours to experience Galway at your own pace or sit back and relax during the Hop On, Hop Off Galway City Bus Tour aboard an open top bus while a professional guide gives you a running commentary of the sights of the ancient historical city of Galway. Or you may want to join our excursion to see the majestic Cliffs of Moher, a sight you’re sure to remember forever.

Tuesday: Galway to Cork

Continue your journey to Cork and check-in to your hostel or hotel. Today you may want to visit Blarney Village, home to the famous Blarney Castle and Blarney Stone or check out all of Cork’s famous sights during the Hop On, Hop Off Cork City Bus Tour.

Wednesday: Cork

Today you may want to check out all the shopping available in Cork or make a short trip to Cobh, the last port of call of the Titantic. Here you can visit The Queenstown Story to learn of the development of the port as the main emigration point for up to 3 million Irish people. We also suggest visiting the town of Kinsale, the gourmet capital of Ireland. To build up your appetite for an amazing meal we suggest the Kinsale Walking Tour, an acclaimed and fun insight into this quaint and extraordinary harbour town.

Thursday: Cork to Dublin

Explore the streets, shops, and pubs of Dublin. You may choose to join in a tour of the Guinness Storehouse and enjoy a complimentary pint in the top-floor Gravity Bar overlooking Dublin. For those of you who would like to immerse yourself into the local sporting culture, the featured event will be a Gaelic Football or Hurling Match at Croke Park.

Friday: Dublin to Home

Say goodbye to Ireland and your new friends as you head to the Dublin International Airport to board your return flight home. Safe travels and we’ll see you next year!

Friday: Post-Night in Dublin Available

Take this last day to enjoy the scenery of the half-day tour of Dublin Castle & Bay. Or check out Trinity College and finish up with a little last minute shopping on Grafton Street before heading back home.
