 Day 1:   Burren & the Cliffs of Moher         

Located in County Clare and just a short drive from Galway City, the area is accessible but remote. Only in the summer months does it get really busy here – anybody lucky enough to travel out of the main season will experience some solitude and quiet. But visitors should dress for changing weather. The Burren does provide no shelter in sudden showers and the Atlantic spray at the Cliffs of Moher can soak you through even on a sunny day.

Just to the north of the Cliffs of Moher you will find the Burren, a strange and beautiful karst landscape with its own extraordinary geological, natural and cultural distinctiveness. Together these two complimentary landscapes form the Burren & Cliffs of Moher Geopark.

Day 2: Adare, Hunt Museum &  Kings John

Adare Village – Adare, Co. Limerick
Situated in the south west of Ireland, Adare is regarded as being Ireland’s prettiest and most picturesque village, and is a haven for those wishing to escape and unwind taking in its medieval surroundings. Situated on the river Maigue, a tributary of the river Shannon, Adare is steeped in history dating back to 1200ad.

Hunt Museum – Limerick City, Co. Limerick
The Hunt Museum was established to house an internationally important collection of approximately 2,000 works of art and antiquities formed by John and Gertrude Hunt during their lifetimes. The museum was officially opened by An Taoiseach John Bruton on 14 February 1997. It was a moment of great celebration for all concerned but, unfortunately, neither John nor Gertrude Hunt had lived to realise their dream. The museum stands as a monument to their enthusiasm, curiosity and generosity.

King John’s Castle – Limerick City, Co. Limerick
King John’s Castle is a 13th century Castle on ‘King’s Island’ in the heart of medieval Limerick City. The Castle overlooks the majestic River Shannon offering wonderful views of Limerick City. Discover history at its best, magnificent views and life in Norman times.

Day 3: Dingle                            

Once cited as ‘the most beautiful place on earth’ by the National Geographic; it was voted among the top 100 destinations in the world by Trip Advisor; CNN recently recommended it as a very favourable winter destination; it is listed as one of the top 10 places to be on New Year’s Eve – all of these accolades refer to County Kerry’s stunningly beautiful Dingle Peninsula.

The Dingle Peninsula, renowned for its rugged beauty and quiet clean beaches, stretches 49 km into the Atlantic Ocean. Ireland’s second highest mountain, Mount Brandon, is situated to the north of the island, reaching a height of 952 metres. The beaches on the peninsula are ideal for surfers, body boarders, wind surfers and other water sports. To the west of the peninsula lie the Blasket Islands, a group of six principal islands and several smaller ones. The largest, the Great Blasket Island is only 6 km long and quite narrow. Visits to the islands, now deserted since 1953, can be made via the Dunquin ferry

Limerick City is a main tourist destination, only a 15-minute drive from Shannon Airport. Tourist attractions of architectural and historical note in the city centre include King John’s Castle (1212), St Mary’s Cathedral (1168), the Hunt Museum, the University of Limerick, Georgian houses and gardens and the Treaty Stone. There are several seasonal tours (Angela’s Ashes walking tour of Limerick City, historical walking tour and boat tours along the River Shannon).
