Ireland & Iceland


Dublin, Ireland - Dublin, the fair city, invites you to wander the streets trod by Joyce, Yeats and Oscar Wilde. Drop in at pubs with mahogany bars and stained glass. In the Trinity College Library, feast your eyes on the illuminated 9th-century Book of Kells. Sample the world's most famous stout at the original Guinness Brewery. And, of course, there are plenty of shopping opportunities from a souvenir shillelagh to Waterford crystal.

Belfast, Northern Ireland - So much of Ireland's political history is tied up in Belfast that many visitors are surprised to find that it is also a modern city that blends old and new effortlessly as the troubles of its past fade into history. Just a day trip away are the Giants' Causeway (a series of stone pillars that extends to Scotland) and the spectacular Antrim coast.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Reykjavik, Iceland - Iceland's capital and largest city is located on the country's southwest coast at the head of Faxafloi Bay. Settled in 877 AD, Reykjavik has grown into an important seaport and center of government and education with theatres, museums and observatories. Interestingly, this modern city still chooses to use water from nearby hot springs to heat all of its buildings.

Akureyri, Iceland -  Akureyi, Iceland's second largest city—affectionately known as the Capital of North Iceland—is one of the country's most important ports and fishing centers. Today, Akureyi is creating something of a buzz for its cool café scene, growing gourmet movement and bustling nightlife. But don't let that fool you. The atmosphere here is always laidback. From a fabulous summer festival program (energized by the near 24-hour daylight), to some of the best winter skiing you could wish for, Akureyi is a great base for exploring Eyjafjörður, Iceland's longest fjord, all year round.

Liverpool, England - Roll over Beethoven! Liverpool is the birthplace of the Beatles! And it won't take long to discover the amazing legacy of art, music and sport that influence this charming city. A short walk from your ship you'll find Albert Dock a bustling, converted maritime business center that now houses all sorts of entertainments (shopping, food, "The Beatles Story" and wonderful modern art at the Tate Liverpool. A bit further afield (but still quite walkable, if you're hearty), you'll find the Cavern Club, where the Beatles got their start.

Before and After your cruise

Your Distinguished Chauffeur Tour of Ireland

Tour available May - September 2020

Date Description
Day 1 Dublin-Kilkenny-Cashel-Killarney: After a leisurely breakfast we meet our Driver Guide in the lobby of the hotel. We drive through Dublin and head south. We continue to the Medieval City of Kilkenny, where we enjoy an optional visit The Kilkenny Castle which has been completely refurbished in recent years.

It is then onto the Rock of Cashel, where we may take an hour tour of the Cashel Cloisters. Our next stop, Blarney Castle, is home to the blarney stone, which legend has it bequeaths the "gift of eloquence" to all who kisses it.

Time to shop at the woolen mills or stop in Christy's Pub for a Pint! Our journey takes us east over the Kerry and Cork Mountains to Macroom where we pause for a short visit. This is the main market town for the Gaelic speaking region to the west. Macroom Castle dates from the 13th century and was the seat of the McCarthy's of Muskerry. Oliver Cromwell granted it to Admiral Sir William Penn whose namesake son spent much of his childhood here and later founded the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We arrive Killarney. Time permitting, we may visit Victoria Muckross House. Overnight at The Great Southern Hotel .
Day 2 Dingle: After breakfast we depart Killarney for the Dingle Peninsula. The journey begins with some of the most magnificent scenery in all of Ireland. The little town of Dingle is straight out of a story book. The fishing boats in the harbor and tiny brightly painted pubs portray a time that has continued to stand still. The population of 1500 people and only 52 pubs are ready to welcome you this afternoon. Worth the wait is the native seafood chowder served up at lunch time with freshly baked brown bread. We continue on to Slea Head. Along the way, we will see beehive style huts, originally inhabited by 12th century monks, which overlook the rugged Blasket Islands. The awe-inspiring beauty of this particular area is unmatched.

There is no other landscape in western Europe with the density and variety of archaeological monuments as found on the Dingle Peninsula. OR Ring of Kerry. After breakfast we enjoy an optional tour to The beautiful Gap of Dunloe in the Killarney National Park. We then start on a full day tour of "The Ring": There is an unspoiled nature to Ireland's most beautiful region and the Ring of Kerry provides many unforgettable memories as it passes through the many picturesque villages such as Glenbeigh, Waterville and Sneem and returns via Ladies View and the famous Lakes of Killarney. We continue to Kenmare and Molls Gap where we visit (optional) the Kissane Sheep Farm. This traditional Farm has approximately 1000 sheep. Time permitting you might also enjoy an hour of Horseback Riding at the Killarney Stables. Be sure and visit one of the three Lakes of Killarney, Lough Leane, The Upper Lake and The Lower Lake which is near the town. OvernightThe Great Southern Hotell.
Day 3 KillarneyKinsale-Blarney-Cork : We continue our back roads journey. We travel down through Glengarriff past Bantry Bay and Bantry, where we stop for a visit. Bantry sits at the head of one of Ireland's most beautiful bays. Its narrow streets lined with shops have changed very little over the last 100 years. We continue on to Skibbereen, made famous in the Johnny Cash song "Forty Shades of Green". Next, we visit the fishing village of Baltimore, where we stop for lunch (on own) and take in the beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean. After our stop, we journey along the southern coast of Ireland, with its unmatched back road scenery, to Kinsale. Known as the Gourmet Capital of Ireland, Kinsale is truly a culinary delight set in a postcard fishing village. We continue to Cobh for an optional stop at the Cobh Heritage Center depicting emigration from Ireland during the great famine of the id 1800's. It is then onto Cork for our overnight.
