Dublin, Co. Mayo (Ashford Castle)

This private Ireland tour immerses travelers in the culture and history of Dublin and includes time at Ashford Castle, an incomparable Irish castle and estate.

Begin in Dublin, the capital of Ireland and the perfect starting point for an overview of the country’s long and storied history. During touring with your private guide and driver, marvel at the iconic Book of Kells and the Long Room in the Old Library at Trinity College, and tour St. Patrick’s Cathedral, one of the most important churches in Ireland. Enjoy a tour of the Old Jameson Distillery, followed by a private tasting of the distillery’s finest products. Walk in the footsteps of Irish literary giants such as James Joyce and Oscar Wilde in Georgian Dublin, a neighborhood of well-preserved architecture set around leafy St. Stephen’s Green. Depending on interests, stroll through the Temple Bar entertainment district, browse the upscale shops on Grafton Street, perhaps cross the River Liffey to walk along historic O’Connell Street, or stop by the Guinness Storehouse and opt for a pint in the on-site bar, which has views over the rooftops of Dublin. Additional touring options in Dublin include the National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology, Kilmainham Gaol and Chester Beatty Library. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange theater tickets and reservations at Dublin’s best restaurants for contemporary Irish cuisine.

Next, you will be transferred to Ashford Castle, a historic lakefront castle hotel and resort that’s a wonderful place to experience Irish culture and cuisine. En route, enjoy a private excursion to the Cliffs of Moher, which rise hundreds of feet above the sea. Also explore the eerie Burren, a rocky karst landscape punctuated by ancient forts, tombs and other archaeological sites. Another day, enjoy a beautiful scenic excursion to Connemara National Park, a rugged landscape of mountains, moors and bogs. Along the way, pass through tiny villages, admire views of the sea, drive along the coast of Ireland’s only fjord, and visit Kylemore Abbey, a beautiful stone building and gardens set on the edge of a lake. Spend one day at leisure at the hotel to enjoy activities on the surrounding estate, such as golf, fishing, horseback riding, falconry, kayaking, family activities, and more.
