Overview

See some of the most beautiful and dramatic scenery in Ireland in comfort when you take this combined rail and coach tour.

The journey starts in Dublin and takes you through the lush countryside of Kildare. The train goes through the town of Newbridge, which marks the northern boundary of the Curragh of Kildare which is headquarters of the Irish army and their buildings can be seen in the distance to the south.

Then drive north to Bunratty Castle – the most authentic and complete medieval fortress in Ireland – and visit its famous Folk Park where 19th-century life is vividly recreated.

After lunch, head for the magnificent Cliffs of Moher on the wild Atlantic coast – one of Ireland’s top attractions – and enter the stark lunar landscape of the Burren. Round Black Head and follow the shores of picturesque Galway Bay all the way to Galway. This drive is rated by the Automobile Association (AA) as one of the top 10 coastal drives in Europe. Continuing through vast expanses of variable land comprising bog and scrub you will arrive at Ballinasloe – home of the world's oldest horse fair.

In Galway, you will join your train for the return to ‘Dublin’s fair city’.
