Be the first to review this vacation.

Take in the highlights of the Emerld Isle on a Boutique Journey. Traveling with no more than 24 guests, you will see some of the main sights in Dublin, circle the Ring of Kerry, gaze out from the Cliffs of Moher, and find many of the famous “forty shades of green” Ireland is known for. Plus, the smaller group size allows for a more intimate experience than you have with a larger group. You’ll visit the Irish National Stud to learn about Ireland’s thoroughbred industry, taste triple-distilled Jameson whiskey at the Old Midleton Distillery, and visit romantic Kylemore Abbey with its glorious walled Victorian garden.
