FROM DUBLIN TO LONDON - 2017

Tour Code - 9040 9 days - DUBLIN to LONDON $1971 AUD

Stunning scenery, pretty villages, ancient sights, and exciting cities—this Britain and Ireland tour offers all of this and more. Your tour starts in Dublin, Ireland’s fun capital; ends in London, England’s exciting capital; and overnights along the way in Ennis, Killarney, Tramore, and Cardiff, the capital of Wales.

Highlights of this tour include the 668-foot Cliffs of Moher on Ireland’s west coast, where you’ll marvel at breathtaking views of rugged cliffs dropping into the ocean, and the Ring of Kerry, a 100-mile panoramic drive through rugged and magnificent landscapes. You’ll savor views of the sparkling seascapes, mountains dotted with brightly colored farmhouses, winding lanes, and views of the Lakes of Killarney. Words cannot capture the magnificence of these natural beauties; you must witness them in person! Also enjoy drives through rich dairy farmland. Stop for photos in Adare, founded in medieval times and known today as one of Ireland’s friendliest and prettiest villages. In fact, its streets are still lined with the original thatched cottages from the 1820s.   

Another tour highlight is prehistoric Stonehenge. You’ve seen photos of Stonehenge—now’s your chance to stand in front of it and try to figure out how these stones weighing 4,000 pounds got there. Visit Bath, famous for its Roman baths used for socializing and bathing 2,000 years ago. Also enjoy stops in Blarney and Galway. In both Dublin and Cardiff, an orientation drive familiarizes you with the cities. In London, you’ll have time on your own to explore or to take optional excursions.

From the vibrant cities to the quaint villages and gorgeous scenery, this value-minded tour through Britain and Ireland is sure to delight all of your senses!
