We'll stop to tour the strikingly designed Great Blasket Centre, where we'll get an intimate look at the language, literature, and daily life of a traditional Gaelic Blasket community. Tonight we'll share dinner together and sleep in Galway (2 nights). There you can join your guide for a minibus tour 'round this dramatic island, including the site of its ancient, cliff-hanging Celtic fortress, Dun Aengus. We'll stop in the charming town of Cong (where Maureen O' Hara and John Wayne filmed in 1951), stroll through the picturesque abbey ruins, and visit the hawks of Ashford Castle. In Derry, a local guide will take us on a tour of the town, sharing stories about "the Troubles" and the infamous "Bloody Sunday" of 1972. Today we'll explore Northern Ireland's spectacular Antrim Coast, marveling at the bizarre basalt columns and local legends of the Giant's Causeway. This morning we'll drive to Belfast, the vibrant capital of Northern Ireland.Tonight we'll return to our home village, Dingle, with as much dancing and singing with new friends as we can handle. Or, you'll have plenty of time to set out on foot, hire a pony cart or pedal a bike to explore this windswept island on your own. Then we'll drive north to County Mayo and Westport, where we'll settle in for the evening. Then we'll drive on to the nostalgic seaside resort of Portrush, where we'll have dinner together and sleep (2 nights). After taking time to fortify yourself with a wee dram at the venerable Old Bushmills Distillery, we'll visit the romantic, clifftop ruins of Dunluce Castle. We'll begin at the Titanic Belfast visitor experience, located on the very site where the great ship was built.
I was very impressed with the caliber of the experience in terms of strong organization and logistics, great and informative tour guides, wonder balance between group time vs.individual time and also a very informative tour guide."My favorite wow moment of the tour would have been our day at Ashford Castle."Too many to mention." This tour was yet another outstanding Rick Steve's tour as we have come to expect. "I don't have just one "wow" moment: I loved flying the hawks; loved all the musical concerts; loved the bonding that went on during the "hurricane;"loved that we were able to go to Northern Ireland (I never felt that I would ever be able to visit Belfast after all The Troubles in recent history); loved the small towns and the rugged coast line." Ireland was as scenic as I had imagined from films such as "The Quiet Man" (and visiting the village of Cong where the movie was filmed was an added treat).The tour was well-organized with meaningful activities. We enjoyed performances of several traditional Irish music groups thanks to our guide Dara. Yes, it rained a third of the time but the right rain jacket made that manageable. "Probably our stay in Galway where we experienced the hurricane.
