    Lighthouse at Old Head Kinsale
    En Route: Newbridge Silverware

    We’ll stop off at the excellent Newbridge Silverware Visitor Centre while en route. Located in Newbridge in County Kildare, this fantastic attraction houses a wide range of stunning silver jewellery, giftware, cutlery and homeware, and so is the ideal place to treat ourselves to something, or to buy a gift or two for someone special at home!

    Cliffs of Moher
    Full Day: Dolphin Watching Cruise and Cliffs of Moher
    Join us on board ‘the Dolphin Discovery’ as we cruise on the Shannon Estuary, in search of Ireland’s only resident bottlenose dolphins. With a bit of luck, we’ll see these fascinating creatures up close! An unforgettable experience that’s not to be missed. And, if that’s not enough, we then head to the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher, standing at 214 metres tall at their highest; they stretch for five miles along the Atlantic Coast. It’s easy to see why the Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most-visited natural attraction; the views are truly breath-taking.
