Brendan’s St. Patrick’s Day Private Chauffeur Itinerary- 6 Days / 5 Nights from $2,990*

Arrive at the five-star Merrion Hotel by your Private Chauffeur. Begin a journey of discovery with a tour of Ireland's capital city. Visit stately St. Patrick's Cathedral, founded in 1190, tour Dublin's Georgian squares with their brightly colored doors, and walk the cobbled courtyards of Trinity College to its unique world treasure, the ornate 8th-century Book of Kells. The rest of the day and evening is at leisure.

The day is free to enjoy the many events around the city celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Enjoy a premium view of the parade’s sea of green with included grandstand tickets amidst the pageantry. Bands from the USA, France and Ireland will deliver inspiring rhythms.

Start your day with a visit to Blarney Castle, home to the magical stone which for a kiss, will bestow the gift of eloquence. Stroll through the gardens, arboretums and waterways of the castle grounds. Accommodations are at the five-star Killarney Park Hotel.

Admire the breathtaking scenery of rugged landscapes and crashing seas along the famous Ring of Kerry, and delight in traditional Irish life as you stop in quaint villages along the way. This unspoiled land has inspired artists and poets for centuries. Returning to Killarney, the rest of the day is free to explore or rest.

Soak in the intoxicating views of the Cliffs of Moher, rising up to 700 feet above the pounding Atlantic waves and stretching five miles along the coast. Visit the interpretive center, a huge, domed, underground building with images, exhibits, and displays, a delight for young and old alike. Then bask in the royal glow of Dromoland Castle, one of the most luxurious castle hotels in Ireland.

Transfer to Shannon Airport where this incredible vacation ends and wave “Slán go fóill - goodbye until we meet again.”
