A Spring break based in Killarney, in the heart of south west Ireland with its beautiful National Park. The magnificent scenery, bustling town with many bars offering live music, shops and famous horse drawn jaunting carts all represent the best about Ireland’s relaxed way of life and, arguably, some of the world’s friendliest folk!
The 3 star family run Eviston House Hotel is located in the centre of Killarney making it an ideal base for visiting all of the local attractions. Each of the en-suite bedrooms are well equipped and include a satellite TV. Facilities at the hotel include the ‘Danni Mann’ Pub where Irish music is played nightly, an elegant restaurant and a comprehensive fitness centre with a hot tub and sauna. The hotel is served by a lift.
Sunday Our door to door service takes you from your home to the waiting Club Class coach for the journey to South Wales during which a light breakfast is served. At Pembroke we board the afternoon sailing to Rosslare with chance to relax and enjoy the hospitality in the comfortable Club Lounge. We reach our overnight hotel, The Talbot in Wexford, where we have a welcome tea/coffee or soft drink before this evening’s dinner.
Monday After breakfast we take the road to Waterford and follow the River Suir to Clonmel. Now a truly scenic drive through Ireland, passing Mallow to arrive in Killarney this afternoon. We have plenty of time to settle in to our holiday hotel, Eviston House Hotel, before a welcome drink by the fire and dinner this evening.
Tuesday After breakfast we have a full day excursion around the ‘Ring of Kerry’ with its rugged Atlantic coastline and majestic mountains. This must surely be one of Europe’s finest scenic areas. We will visit Killorgin, Cahirseevin and Waterville making a lunch stop at a traditional pub, with breath-taking views, before returning over Molls Gap to our hotel in time for dinner.
Wednesday A free day at leisure. We include a short walking tour of the town with a visit to St Mary’s Cathedral. Later a chance to ride in a ‘jaunting car’ and a boat ride on the lake. Back at the hotel this afternoon we enjoy tea & scones.
Thursday After breakfast we have another day of wonderful scenery. Our first visit is to the charming town of Tralee for a short stop before we continue around the beautiful Dingle Peninsular. The roads are lined by fuchsia hedges and the Atlantic views as we round rugged Slea Head are unforgettable. We include time in Dingle before the return to the hotel to enjoy our final dinner in Killarney.
Friday A leisurely breakfast before our drive along the south coast. From Killarney we head for Blarney Castle and the world famous ‘Blarney Stone’, time for the energetic to ‘Kiss the Stone’ while others enjoy a coffee. Now on through Cork and past Cobh Harbour to picturesque Youghal, a busy port and resort on the River Blackwater, the ideal place to make time for lunch. This afternoon we continue to Waterford and back to our overnight hotel in Wexford.
Saturday After an early breakfast we set out for the ferry taking us back to Pembroke. We return to our home areas via South Wales, the beautiful Wye Valley and the midlands arriving early evening to be greeted by our awaiting taxis.
