Join Mary for this fun filled 8 or 11 day trip.

In Ireland we値l golf and tour or just tour with the Florida Ski Council. We fly into Dublin and will be greeted by a tour guide who will show us all Ireland has to offer.

We start off each morning with a full Irish Breakfast, and a chartered bus and guide will be waiting each day.

There are 3 golf days mixed in with the group tour days. Day 2, 4 & 7 we値l all meet and take golfers to their destination and end our tour day with picking them up from a day of 18 holes. We値l start the tour when we land in Dublin heading to Wexford. We値l tour the Dunbrody Emigrant Ship and enjoy a reenactment of real life stories.

If you have Irish ancestry from the 19th century your forbears are probably here. We値l head to Waterford Crystal Factory and ladies be prepared to watch how it痴 all made and possibly purchase a piece for your collection. We値l spend the first night in Waterford and enjoy dinner as a group.

Day 2 we値l drop the golfers off at Fota Island and head to Midleton where we値l visit the Jameson Experience and of course take part in in tasting of a fine Whiskey. We値l hop on the bus and head to Blarney Castle. We値l all climb the castle to kiss the Blarney stone which guarantees the gift of eloquence. Both are optional and not included in trip price. Head back to pick up golfers and head to Killarney for our second night and again enjoy dinner as a group.

Day 3 we値l sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Ring of Kerry, known as the most beautiful coastline. During the day we値l experience the ancient heritage of Ireland with the Iron Age forts, the Ogham Stones, old monasteries and rural communities all along the east side of the Atlantic Ocean. The conclusion to the 然ing is in the highest mountain range, Macgillycuddy痴 Reeks, through Moll痴 Gap stretching down over the Killarney Lakes. Next we値l visit Muckross House a Victorian mansion.

For our third night we値l head back to Killarney and have dinner with the group.

Day 4 we値l drop the golfers at Dingle and head to Dingle Peninsula and enjoy the historic, cultural and literary heritage. Again breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean with miles of unspoiled sandy beaches. Return to Dingle to pick up the golfers and listen to their golf day experience while we all transfer from the Peninsula via Tralee and Listowel to cross the mouth of the Shannon River on the Tarbert Killimer ferry. We値l all head back to Ennis for the night and dinner with the group.

Day 5 we値l head to the Burren region, a vast lunar landscape harboring rare plants and flowers. Beneath the surface is the towering Cliffs of Moher stretching five miles along the rugged coastline. We値l head to Bunratty Castle and Folkpark, Irelands medieval castle. The Park features include a recreated village street, eight farmhouses, a watermill, blacksmiths forge, Macs pub and restaurant. We値l enjoy the banquets which offer a 4 course banquet of Irish dishes with entertainment from the court of lords and ladies in the castle. Head back to Ennis for the night.

Day 6 we値l head back to Dublin arriving in the early afternoon with a panoramic sightseeing tour of this historic city starting with Trinity College allowing us to view the Book of Kells a 9th century gospel manuscript and stroll through the beautiful old library. We値l see cathedrals and the architecture throughout the city. Over the Liffey River is the famous Temple Bar, street theater, entertainment and shopping of Grafton Street. We値l head to Guinness Storehouse to learn the fascinating history and traditional methods used in crafting Ireland痴 most famous Guinness. It痴 located in St James Gate Brewery with seven floors designed around a glass atrium mirroring the shape of a pint of the black nectar. Floor by floor take a surprising journey through the past, present and future of the iconic beer. The visit ends in the Gravity Bar with a 360 degree panoramic view of Dublin. On to the hotel for dinner with the group.

Day 7 the group will visit Powerscourt House & Gardens. The golfers will leave the group for their day on Powerscourt Golf Course. The Gardens stretch 45 acres and are a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, statuary and ornamental lakes with secret hollows. We値l experience the Japanese Gardens, the Pepper Pot Tower, and Pet Cemetery ending with a tour of the Powerscourt House which is a wonderful tourist destination. On to Glendalough 典he Valley of the Two Lakes a monastic site amidst the Wicklow Mountains. St Kevin founded a monastery which grew to become famous as a center of learning known as the Island of Saints and Scholars.
