What's this trip about?

    Arrive in the vibrant city of Dublin, pick up your rental car, then embark on your adventure through the Emerald Isle. Spend the first four nights of your vacation relaxing at cozy bed & breakfasts throughout Ireland. After exciting days of adventuring and sightseeing, come home to warm welcomes, homey atmospheres, and friendly hosts who will be there to address any of your questions or concerns. B&Bs are a perfect way to experience the authentic local culture! After surrounding yourself true Irish charm, experience Irish luxury and elegance. Head to the breathtaking 5-star Ashford Castle in beautiful County Mayo and settle into your royal retreat. While it’ll be tempting to spend tons of time exploring the castle, be sure to visit nearby Connemara, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, and the picturesque village of Cong! Return east and open the doors to your beautiful 5-start resort in County Wicklow. Just outside of Dublin, Wicklow is known as the “Garden of Ireland,” and it won’t take long to see why! Enjoy a relaxing day at your elegant hotel, then explore the stunning scenery of Wicklow or venture into Dublin for an afternoon of city life and pub culture.
