The Destination
Ireland is any traveler's dream destination. The Emerald Isle, as this impossibly green country is known, is packed with so much cultural and topographical diversity that nearly every square inch is worth exploring. And because it's only slightly larger than South Carolina, doing so is possible entirely by car. From the 800-year-old walls of Dublin Castle, to the famously raucous pubs of Galway, to the hiking trails of Macgillycuddy's Reeks and the cliff-hugging golf courses of County Wicklow, this pint-size island in the North Atlantic offers unforgettable experiences around every corner. Pack your camera and a map, and don't forget your sense of adventure: You'll need it on this eight-day trip from Great Value Vacations, which includes round-trip flights, a rental car, and nightly accommodations at four great hotels and resorts.

The Itinerary
day 1: Board your transatlantic flight from Boston, New York, or Chicago to Dublin.

day 2: Arrive at Dublin Airport. Pick up your car rental at the airport and make your way to the Heritage Resort, about an hour southwest of Dublin. This ten-year-old resort offers world-class five-star accommodations, an award-winning spa, a championship golf course, and a variety of dining and drinking options. Explore the on-site walking path, catch a movie in the theater, or grab your racket for a game of tennis.
Overnight at The Heritage Golf & Spa Resort.

days 3 and 4: Drive an hour southwest to Killarney, where you'll stay two nights at the Muckross Park Hotel & Cloisters Spa, offering the ultimate in luxury and refinement in County Kerry. Recalling the elegance of the Victorian era, this five-star hotel sits in the heart of Killarney National Park and features a breathtaking spa as well as three dining and drinking options, including fine cuisine at Yew Tree Restaurant, casual fare at Molly Darcy's Traditional Irish Pub, and tea service in Monk's Lounge. You're also within minutes of the Killarney city center, Muckross Abbey, and a variety of hiking trails in the national park.
Two nights at Muckross Park Hotel & Cloisters Spa.

days 5 and 6: Travel two hours north to Galway and stay at the g Hotel, situated along the coastline of Galway Bay less than five minutes from the city center. Decidedly modern and upscale, Galway's only five-star hotel features a full-service spa and a hip, award-winning restaurant. When it comes time to explore, you'll find yourself just minutes from all the best of the region: the Spanish Arch, the Cliffs of Moher, and a variety of museums and shops.
Two nights at the g Hotel.

day 7: Head two hours east back toward Dublin and stay in the five-star Powerscourt Hotel, about 35 minutes south of Dublin. Formerly the Ritz Carlton, this luxurious resort offers two championship golf courses, a 30,000-square-foot spa, and an elegant restaurant specializing in cuisine made from locally grown, seasonal ingredients.
Overnight at the Powerscourt Hotel.

day 8: Board your flight for your return trip to the United States.

  • "Throughout your travels you will be overwhelmed by the choices on offer—a play by one of the theatrical greats in Dublin, a traditional music 'session' in a west-Ireland pub, or a rock gig in a Limerick saloon."
