Iconic cities like lively Dublin… culturally inspired Galway… and storied Belfast each delight in their own unique way. Stays in famous castle-hotels, country estates, lakeside resorts, and city-center hotels put you right in the heart of each destination visited, perfect for experiencing the legendary Irish hospitality… listening to timeless tales from 10th-century Glendalough… learning the secrets of Irish whiskey making... attending a private recital at centuries-old Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral in Cork... and beyond.  Read Less

Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

Step back to 19th-century Ireland

Bring your imagination... expect a little magic... and discover what it was like to live in the 1800s in a small village in Ireland. The houses and shops in the Folk Park are a collection of typical 19th-century Irish buildings such as the school, doctor's house, pawnbrokers, pub, drapery, printworks, grocery, hardware shop, pottery and a post office. From the castle... to a pet farm... to a beautiful walled garden, your family immerses in all things Irish.

Private sheep-shearing demonstration

Watch a sheep-shearing champion at work on a private visit to an Irish sheep farm

In many countries around the world, the art of sheep shearing – cutting off a sheep's woolen fleece, usually once a year – is not only an important skill on the farm, but a competitive sport among shearers who are typically fit and highly experienced. Ireland has produced many champion shearers, including world-record-breaking Patrick Moran. In a private visit and demonstration on a farm in Derreen, learn how sheep shearing has progressed over the centuries… and meet champion shearer Moran and see him in action, shearing by hand in the traditional style.

Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre

Private recital at St. Fin Barre's Cathedral

Day 3

Attend a private recital in the triple-spired, Gothic Revival St. Fin Barre's Cathedral in Cork

The magnificent, three-spired St. Fin Barre's Cathedral in the Irish city of Cork looks every bit like a grand Gothic cathedral from the medieval era, but it's actually a Gothic Revival masterpiece designed in the 19th century by English architect William Burges, and completed in 1879, on a site connected with Cork's patron saint, the 6th-century abbot Finbarr of Cork. But this 19th-century cathedral is no less majestic than its medieval counterparts – it's adorned by more than 1,200 sculptures inside and out, including gargoyles – and is a fitting setting for a private musical recital for Tauck guests only.

Belfast's Titanic exhibit and a Titanic dinner

Belfast's award-winning Titanic museum... followed by a 9-course Titanic tasting dinner

Learn insider stories behind Titanic, designed to be one of the finest ships ever to grace the seas, on your visit to Titanic Belfast, built on the site of the former Queen's Island shipyards that produced the ill-fated liner. J. Bruce Ismay, Chairman of the White Star Line, asked Lord Pirrie of shipbuilders Harland & Wolff to construct "a stable ship that will not disturb the sediment in the fine wines" they were drinking together at a planning meeting. And while Titanic was, according to her builders, "as nearly as perfect as human brains can make her," she proved no match for nature. Discover more in modern-day galleries that bring the legendary ship back to life... and enjoy a 5-course Titanic tasting dinner in the Great Room of The Merchant Hotel.
