Historical Adare Manor Tour
An intriguing historical tour of Adare Manor is included in your Romantic Tour Package. Built in 1832, Adare Manor has a rich and mysterious history. The second Earl of Dunraven is responsible for the magnificent current building, and amazingly, the whole construction project was devised to divert the Earl's attention from the ailment of gout, which laid him low and confined him indoors. Dunraven conceived a grand architectural scheme brimming with vigorous imagination. The Manor is mysteriously laid out as a rare 'Calendar House' and boasts 365 stained windows and 52 chimneys marking the annual tally of days and weeks. Further, more discreet references to the calendar are in evidence to the observant eye. Gargoyles are scattered throughout the larger chambers of the building, inhabiting their own corners and nooks, smirking shiftily, as if keeping secrets from any who spot them. Learn about all this and so much more on your tour of this intriguing and historic property.
**The Historical Manor Tours run daily at 2:30pm, except on a Friday. Please contact your concierge at the manor for more information.**
Adare Heritage Village, County Limerick
On the Map: Adare is located just 20km southwest of Limerick City / 43km south of Shannon Airport. The main N21 road (connecting the cities of Limerick & Tralee/Killarney) passes right through the centre of the village.
Adare is a quaint picturesque place, lined with traditional thatched-roof cottages. Snuggled in a wooded and lush countryside setting, Adare is widely regarded as being Ireland's prettiest and most unique village. Situated on the river Maigue, a tributary of the Shannon river, Adare (Gaelic name: "Ath Dara" - the "ford of the oak" - from the combination of water and woodland) dates back, at least, to the early 13th century. Adare village has a rich wealth of heritage, as well as architectural and scenic beauty. Two groups of world famous, ornate, thatched cottages line part of the village's broad main street, punctuated with beautiful stone buildings, medieval monasteries and ruins. Situated in the centre of County Limerick, with just 15 minutes from Limerick City and 45 minutes from Shannon Airport, Adare Village is an ideal base from which to explore County Limerick's many visitor attractions such as Lough Gur and King John's Castle.
Lough Gur, County Limerick
On the Map: Lough Gur is located in the southwestern midlands of Ireland in County Limerick - 21km southeast of Limerick City. To reach Lough Gur from Adare, head north on the N21 until it intersects with the N20. Follow the N20 south (signposted Cork) before exiting at the R516 road (signposted Croom). Follow the R516 east, until turning north onto the R512 in Bruff Village. Lough Gur is signposted thereafter.
Lough Gur is one of Ireland’s archaeological and historical hidden gems. From the level surrounding countryside, the beautiful and enchanted lake unfolds the beauty of its placid waters and rugged hills – a fairyland of stone circles, ancient habitation sites, megalith tombs, crannogs and castles. Lough Gur tells the story of the pre-Celtic settlers who first came to the area over 5,500 years and continues to the present day in the people who still dwell and farm in the locality. It is an archaeological site of outstanding significance. A visitor centre was built in 1980 and uses the design of two of the excavated stone age houses as its plan. The Centre houses a number of displays covering stone age and bronze age implements, pottery and weaving. A slide show offers a very good overview of the area's history.
Candlelight Manor Dinner
Enjoy a sumptuous dinner on the evening of your choice at Adare Manor's Oakroom Restaurant. Lit only by candlelight, the Oakroom is a beautiful, intimate space overlooking the River Maigue. With its accompanying colonnade, it is undoubtedly one of the most enchanting & romantic dinner settings in the country. Adare Manor has earned international acclaim for its excellence in fine dining. Under the careful hands of head chef Mark Donohue and his team, fusing a contemporary Irish approach with strong classical influences – dishes and flavours change with the seasons. Only the finest of fresh, locally sourced produce is used. Complimented by a vast and continuously updated selection of over 300 wines from the Manor’s Cellar, the Oakroom menus feature many exciting twists and turns. Fantastic food, a magnificent romantic setting & a truly magical atmosphere - what more could one ask for?
Glen of Aherlow, County Tipperary
On the Map: The Glen of Aherlow is located in County Tipperary in the southern midlands of Ireland. It stretches from the N24 road, just south of the heritage town of Tipperary, through sixteen miles of unspoilt countryside.
The Glen of Aherlow is a quiet country valley, secluded but not isolated, and affords some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable. The Glen sits between the Galtee mountains on the south and the Slievenamuck Ridge on the North. The Galtees, Ireland's highest inland mountain range, boast five spectacular corrie lakes, dominated by a variety of magnificent peaks including Galteemore at 3,018 ft. This expansive vista is further enhanced by the many streams cascading down the face of the mountain. The foothills are forested, as is the 12 miles of the Slievenamuck ridge, providing the walker with a variety of delightful woodland trails.
Cashel, County Tipperary
On the Map: Cashel is located in County Tipperary in the southern midlands of Ireland. The main M8 motorway connecting the major cities of Dublin (to the northeast) and Cork (to the southwest) passes right by the town.
If one approaches Cashel from the north on the main Dublin to Cork road, you will round a 21st century bend and suddenly be transported back 1,500 years. There, standing proud on the plains, is the great 4th century fortification of Cashel - the stone fort. This was the seat of kings and medieval bishops for 900 years and flourished until the early 17th century. Indeed there was a settlement here from pre-Christian times, traces of which have long since vanished. Brú Ború - the palace of Ború - is a national heritage centre at the foot of the Rock of Cashel. This cultural and interpretative village is designed around a village green and is home to the study and celebration of native Irish music, song, dance, story telling, theatre and Celtic studies. Cashel itself is a busy little market town and is a handy place to break the journey between Dublin to Cork.

Kenmare, with its pastel coloured houses, is along with Killarney, a usual starting point for the Ring of Kerry round trip. The small charming town, founded by a handful of Englishmen in 1670, has every tourist convenience imaginable, including 2 of the most luxurious hotels in Ireland, both of which have been awarded much coveted Michelin stars: The Park Hotel and Sheen Falls Lodge. Kenmare boasts a remarkable number of excellent restaurants and quality pubs for a town of its size, and has garnered a fantastic reputation as a gourmet destination in recent years. Owing to its enviable location adjacent to Kenmare Bay and the River Finnehy, all set against the backdrop of the Kerry Mountains, Kenmare's picturesque aspect is hard to match.
Ross Castle, County Kerry
On The Map: Ross Castle is located on the southern outskirts of Killarney, County Kerry in the southwest of Ireland. From Killarney town centre, head south on the N71/Muckross Road for Kenmare. Ross Road is right turn off the N71, and is well signposted.
Ross castle overlooks the Lower Lake in Killarney, and commands magnificent views of Purple Mountain, Innisfallen Island & Ross Island. The Castle is a typical example of an Irish Chieftain stronghold during the Middle Ages. The date of its foundation is uncertain, but construction was most likely completed in the late 15th century, by one of the O'Donoghue Ross chieftains. The castle is surrounded by a fortified bawn, and its curtain walls defended by circular flanking towers, two of which remain. Ross was the last Munster stronghold to hold out against Oliver Cromwell's infamous British forces, before eventually being taken by General Ludlow in 1652. The castle contains an impressive collection of 16th & 17th century oak furniture. Legend has it that Brian Boru, Ireland's most famous High King was educated on the site of the castle by the Monks in the 9th Century. Please note that this is a very popular attraction, and visitors may experience a delay entering the castle during the busy summer months.

Kenmare Bay Romantic Cruise
Enjoy a romantic cruise around spectacular Kenmare Bay. Prepare yourself for a totally different perspective of this scenic area, as the surrounding peninsulas and inlets are viewed up close from the water. Wildlife abounds on Kenmare Bay, and indeed it has the richest marine habitat in Western Europe. An abundance of wild birds (puffins, gannets, eagles) call the bay home, but it's the grey seals that are likely to steal your heart, particularly if you visit in July/August, when seal pups are born! Visit some of the many uninhabited islands of the bay, and soak up the sights of this most delightful region of Ireland.
**The cruise times change daily so please ask at reception at the time of check-in for a confirmation of your cruise time.**
Ring of Kerry, County Kerry
On the Map: The Ring of Kerry (Iveragh Peninsula) is in County Kerry in the southwest of Ireland. Killarney is the usual starting point for people completing the Ring, although Kenmare is another good option for this purpose. The N70 road encircles the entire peninsula.
The Ring of Kerry is one of Ireland’s most scenic touring routes. At 110 miles long, it circles the awe-inspiring Iveragh Peninsula. You’ll feel as if you have moved into nature’s mystic arena, and truly you have, as you pass between soft mountains, through forest glades, around bogs, rivers, lakes and pristine beaches. The road between the magnificent MacGillycuddy Reeks Mountains presents secret passes and valleys dotted along the fabled shores of Dingle and Kenmare Bays. Ireland’s natural beauty sings throughout the Ring of Kerry. You may wish to explore several charming villages along the route, including Glenbeigh, Waterville, and Sneem. Stroll and talk to people—this is what makes your travel experience unique. The Ring attracted Ireland’s first settlers, and has a wealth of ancient sites. A 6th century monastery, clinging to the windswept cliffs of the Skellig Islands, is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Staigue Stone Fort is an Iron Age stronghold dating from 300BC. This is also an area of Ogham Stones, the first mysterious forms of writing and art, nestled along the Ring. Follow the drive to Killarney by way of the Ladies View and the legendary Lakes of Killarney and the National Park. The Ring of Kerry is the stuff of dreams and lifelong memories.
Killarney National Park, County Kerry
On the Map: Killarney is located in County Kerry in the southwest of Ireland. The town is reached via the N22 from Tralee/ Limerick (to the north) and the N22 from Cork City (to the southeast).
On the southwestern edge of Killarney Town lies an untamed, rugged & mountainous country. The area includes the McGillycuddy's Reeks, Ireland's highest mountain range. At the foot of these mountains nestle the world famous lakes of Killarney. Here, where the mountains sweep down to the lake shores, their lower slopes covered in woodlands, you'll discover the 26,000 acre Killarney National Park . The distinctive combination of mountains, lakes, woods and waterfalls under ever changing skies, lends the area a special scenic beauty. The Park contains many features of national and international importance such as the native oakwoods and yew woods, together with an abundance of evergreen trees and shrubs. A profusion of bryophytes and lichens thrive in the mild Killarney climate. The native red deer are unique in Ireland, with a presence in the country since the last Ice Age. At the heart of the National Park is Muckross House and Gardens. The house, a late 19th century mansion features period furnishings and artefacts and is a major visitor attraction in itself. Killarney National Park was designated as a Biosphere Reserve in 1981 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).
Presidential Suite & Treats!
Your stay at the Dingle Skellig hotel will be in one of its two luxurious Presidential Suites. Both the Eask & Mount Eagle Suites are named for famous local landmarks that can be viewed from the south-facing rooms. Each boasts incredible views over Dingle Harbour and Bay - a more romantic location, you will not find! Each has a private sitting room and balcony - indeed, you may be reluctant to explore the outdoors, when the Peninsula can be so easily enjoyed without ever leaving your suite of rooms! And we're making it even trickier to leave by arranging for a bottle of prosecco, and scrummy box of Irish chocolates to greet you on your arrival. Did we mention that your package includes a 20% discount on the spa treatment of your choice? Let the pampering begin!
Dingle, County Kerry
On the Map: Dingle is located in County Kerry on the beautiful southwest coast of Ireland. The town is most easily accessible via the N86 road from Tralee, a major town 50 minutes/ 50km to the east.
The residents of Dingle, or An Daingean as it is now officially known, are the envy of everyone in Ireland. They live in what many agree is the most beautiful part in the country, in a strikingly attractive fishing village with fantastic pubs, rousing music, great restaurants and more characters per head of population than anywhere in the world. The key to Dingle is to visit as many pubs as you can while there. Seek out the old pubs frequented by the locals, sit up to the bar, order a drink and prepare to be entertained! The Dingle Peninsula on which the town is located is littered with ancient archeological sites including stone forts and many beehive huts. Scenically, the Peninsula is an absolute delight with every turn of the road revealing more of the achingly beautiful landscape. One highlight is the Slea Head loop drive from Dingle which is easily driven in an hour or cycled in an afternoon. For the energetic, a day spent climbing Mount Brandon, the peninsula's highest, will be richly rewarded. The views from the top on a clear day are absolutely stunning.
Conor Pass, County Kerry
On the Map: The Conor Pass is located just northeast of Dingle town on the Spa Road.
The Conor Pass is the highest mountain pass in Ireland, and provides the most dramatic and scenic way of entering or leaving Dingle. This narrow, twisting road runs between the town of Dingle and Kilmore Cross on the north side of the peninsula, where roads fork to Cloghane/Brandon or Castlegregory. The views from the road are breathtaking, as the glaciated landscape of mountains and corrie lakes comes into view. From the scenic carpark at the summit there are views as far as the Aran Islands, located off the coast of County Galway
The dramatic beauty of the Dingle Peninsula on the most southerly coastline of Ireland has been an inspiration and a wonder to visitors for thousands of years. Dingle Riding Stables are located on the mountainside overlooking Dingle Harbour and close to the town of Dingle. This trek takes riders up into the hills overlooking the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. You leave the Stables and follow an old country road through lush Irish farmland to a small hillside path that leads you up into the hills. At the top, there is a chance for more experienced riders to quicken the pace with a canter along the ridge while less experienced riders can enjoy the scenery and take advantage of a photo opportunity not to be missed. This trek departs daily at 11:00, 2:30 & 4:00pm and is intended for, but not restricted to beginner riders.
Slea Head, County Kerry
On The Map: Slea Head is located on the Dingle Peninsula in the south west of Ireland. From Dingle town, head west on the R559 that encircles Slea Head and eventually returns to Dingle.
The Slea Head Drive is a circular route, beginning and ending in Dingle, that takes in a large number of ancient & megalithic attractions as well as offering stunning views on the western end of the peninsula. The route is clearly labelled by road signs throughout its length. To properly enjoy the Drive, a half-day should be set aside for the journey. The route is suitable for motorists, but is also ideal for cyclists: it is possible to hire a bike at a number of locations in Dingle.
Blasket Islands, County Kerry
On The Map: The Blasket Islands are located off the west coast of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry. A mere 3 miles from the mainland, the islands are the most westerly point in Europe.
In the 1920s and 1930s, Blasket Island writers (including Peig Sayers) produced books which are today deemed classics in the world of literature. They wrote of Island people living on the very edge of Europe, and brought to life the topography, life and times of their island. All of their stories were written in the Irish language. Sadly, the Blasket Island community declined as a result of the persistent emigration of its young people, until eventually the Island was abandoned in 1953 when only 22 inhabitants remained. The Great Blasket Island remains uninhabited today, but visitors can travel by ferry from Dingle Marina (40 minutes) or Dunquin (20 mintues) to spend a few hours on this remote and romantic isle. Take in the wonderful natural beauty of the island and marvel at the views of the spectacular Kerry mountains & coastline. Relax on the beautiful beach or explore the eerie abandoned village and imagine what life must have been like 100 years ago.

Dromoland, County Clare
On the Map: Dromoland Castle is located in County Clare in the west of Ireland. The castle is reached via the R458, a country road that intersects the M18 motorway between the city of Ennis (to the north) and Shannon Airport/ Limerick City (to the south).
Dromoland Castle is one of Ireland's grandest hotels and also one of its best-loved. The ancestral home of the O'Briens, barons of Inchiquin and direct descendants of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland, it is one of the few Irish estates tracing its history back to Gaelic royal families. Today, Dromoland is an oasis of tranquility. The grandeur of the castle itself, its magnificent furnishings and the surrounding lakes and parkland offer guests an experience almost impossible to find at other luxury hotels. It is a truly enchanting place.
Cliffs of Moher, County Clare
On the Map: The Cliffs of Moher are located on the western coast of County Clare. The Cliffs are accessed via the R478 road that connects Doolin (to the north) and the seaside town of Lahinch (to the southeast).
The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's top Visitor attractions. The Cliffs stand 214 metres (700 feet) tall at their highest point and range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. O'Brien's Tower, constructed by Sir Cornellius O'Brien in 1835, stands proudly on a headland of the majestic Cliffs. From the Cliffs one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, as well as The Twelve Pins, the Maum Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the South. There are two paths to take north and south along the cliff edge, providing spectacular views all the way. Construction of an award winning eco-friendly Visitor Centre was completed in 2007. The interpretive centre named 'Atlantic Edge' contains state of the art displays and visitor facilities. The grass-roofed building is cleverly set into the hillside - a unique cave-like structure which minimises the visual impact on this fabulously scenic location.
Bunratty, County Clare
On the Map: Bunratty is located in the west of Ireland in County Clare. The main N18/M18 road connecting the cities of Limerick (to the south) & Ennis (to the north) passes right by the village. Shannon Airport is only 15 minutes to the west, also accessed via the N18/M18.
In Bunratty Village, one can enjoy the medieval grandeur that awaits in Bunratty Castle and its lively Folk Park. The castle, overlooking the River Shannon, is in excellent condition and well worth a visit. It is one of the finest surviving examples of an Irish tower house, and it's current peaceful and picturesque state belies its bloody and violent history. The strategic location of the castle on the river Shannon ensured it was the focal point of many battles, and it has it has been destroyed and re-built on at least eight occasions. The Folk Park adjoins the castle and vividly portrays what everyday life was like in rural Ireland about 100 years ago. It contains reconstructed farmhouses, cottages and shops, replete with authentic furnishings. The Park is a living museum: animals are tended, bread is baked, milk is churned, walls are whitewashed and roofs are thatched. You may visit an Irish farmhouse, watch the blacksmith fit a horseshoe, or attend a weaving demonstration. The village also reflects the fundamental changes that led to increased mobility in Irish society. Once you've explored the Castle & Folk Park, be sure to sample a relaxing cup of tea and freshly baked scones in one of the quaint thatched cottage cafes. The famous Durty Nelly's pub is in the heart of town, adjacent to the castle.
Depart from Shannon Airport, County Clare
Return to Shannon Airport three hours prior to your flight's scheduled departure. Shannon is a small, convenient airport, so this will allow ample time to check in for your flight home.

Maggie set up an incredible itinerary. We stayed in beautiful hotels and experienced amazing sites that covered a wide array of the best that Ireland has to offer.

I recommend using Authentic Ireland without reservation.
“Glad we used Authentic Ireland”
My wife and I wanted to take a trip to the British Isles for our 25th anniversay. We used Authentic Ireland to help plan our itinerary for 12 days in London, Edinburgh, and various locations in Ireland. Kati Lepisto, from AI, arranged for all of our lodging as well as the rental car in Ireland. She included a tour of the Scottish Highlands, and also recommended other activities to round out our trip. Everything worked out perfectly.
All of the hotels recommended by Kati were wonderful, and I was impressed with her thorough and helpful communication both before and during our trip.
Thank you Kati and Authentic Ireland!
Jordan and the staff at Authentic Ireland listened to our needs and planned a fantastic trip for us .

We did a southern loop including Dublin, Kilkenny, Cork county, Kalarney, the western coasts up to Galway and Connemara. venturing off the beaten path was the best of all. Get yourself lost on a country road and stop to talk to local farmers..They love it and provide great advice for a few secret spots! Thanks again Jordan. We will use and recommend you in the future!
Edna assisted in planning a dream trip to Ireland for me and my friends, and I could not have been happier with the experience! From the beginning, Edna understood our desire to travel across Ireland on a small budget. She was quick to respond to my questions and willing to make last-minute adjustments when our plans changed. She reserved a rental car for us which was unbelievably easy to pick up and drop off and booked us at B&Bs with comfortable rooms, friendly hosts, and fabulous food. Ireland must be the most stunning place on earth, and I can't thank Edna and Authentic Ireland enough for sending me to this magical place.
I hope to begin planning a trip to Scotland soon and will certainly be using their services!
