Your Romantic Ireland 9 Days itinerary is the perfect fairy-tale getaway to the Emerald Isle. You are able to see the famous features of Ireland with highlighted romantic experiences.
We love this itinerary because it allows you to see the highlights of Ireland as a first-time visitor, or you can relive the best of Ireland if you’ve been before. Beginning in Dublin, traversing into Kilkenny, then finishing the tour in Galway, you’ll have many sightseeing and touring opportunities full of idyllic views.
Why We Love Dublin
Ireland’s capital city of Dublin blends modern amenities with charming historic neighborhoods. A flourishing food scene for everyone to enjoy. Explore the iconic sites such as the Guinness Storehouse, the Glasnevin Cemetery, and the Kilmainham Gaol. Enjoy a pint and live music in a pub in the famous Temple Bar neighborhood. Join a tour about the Easter Rising or Ireland’s rich literature, or take a tour of Jameson Whiskey Distillery.
Why We Love Kilkenny
Kilkenny is one of Ireland’s oldest cities, dating as far back as the 6th century. At the heart and soul of medieval Ireland, Kilkenny is famed for its electric atmosphere played out in its maze of narrow Norman alleyways. Twisting and turning around abbeys, cathedrals, and crumbling city walls, there’s even an early 12th-century castle dropped in the middle of it all. It’s surrounded by beautiful gardens that attract artistic locals, giddy kids, and chilled-out tourists on sunny days.
Why We Love Kinsale
The town of Kinsale is notorious for its warm and welcoming population, colorful structures, abundant history, and seafood. This vibrant coastal town is a great intimate stop on the way to Galway. We recommend visiting the James and Charles forts, both situated on the river’s banks.
Why We Love County Kerry
County Kerry is ideal for those who want to experience picturesque Ireland at its peak. The rambling roadways of County Kerry cut through patchwork fields. Drive alongside the dramatic and rocky coastline. It’s home to some of the most striking castle ruins and charming villages Ireland has to offer. With multiple castles to visit and stay at, County Kerry brings charm and romance to your visit.
Why We Love Galway
Voted the Cultural Capital of Europe for 2020, Galway has so much to offer its visitors! Don’t worry, it won that distinction before 2020 began – Perched on the coast of Galway Bay, the city of Galway is a buzzing little town full of pubs, shops, and charm. We recommend strolling down Shop Street, a pedestrian roadway where buskers perform, boutiques entice, and you’ll find the smallest museum in Ireland: the Claddagh Museum. The famous Claddagh design of two hands holding a crowned heart is believed to have been created in Galway, and it’s a great place to purchase a souvenir Claddagh ring to bring home!
