World Travel. Family Discovery.

Irresistibly Irish, one of our favorite family tours of Ireland journeys from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher. Travel by a World War II amphibious vehicle... take a cooking class at a world-famous cooking school... discover the story of the Titanic... learn a bit of Irish step dancing... and immerse in Emerald Isle fun. 

Hands-on family fun has everyone’s eyes a-smiling... learn how to Irish Step Dance... explore Dublin by land and water and go on a treasure hunt back in time, from the Viking age to the Middle Ages... ride aboard a train through emerald landscapes... learn the real story of the Titanic... make pottery, Celtic jewelry and a home-grown Irish dinner... explore the wild Atlantic Way and stay seaside... step back centuries at Bunratty Castle & Folk Park... and learn all things Irish during a family trip to Ireland.

Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre

Day 4

Try your hand at pottery or Celtic jewelry making

You'll get a good introduction to the artistic side of Ireland at the Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre from a skilled potter; the Centre specializes in pottery / ceramics, glass fusing, jewelry-making, and mosaic-making. Techniques you might learn include throwing on the potter's wheel, coiling a small sculpture, and learning decorative and sculpting techniques. Local artisans will show you how to make pottery, helping you hand-build and paint your sculpted piece. Or you can try your hand at Celtic jewelry making, using a range of skills covered in today’s class – design, threading, knotting, fitting crimps and finishing – all in a workshop in the converted stables of the home farm for Ballinacurra House, dating from the late 1700s.

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.

I really loved learning to do Irish step dancing. It made our day in Dublin one of our best days.

Took 2 granddaughters, wonderful time. Dublin first, great city with lots of history. Then train ride to Cork. Castlemartyr is a great resort. Kissed the stone at Blarney Castle. Cooking school was fun for kids and adults. On to Killarney for rides on jaunty carts. Killarney is an exciting city; next to Dromoland Castle, Cliffs of Moher, wonderful.

Most Memorable Moment:

Falconry and Cliffs of Moher.

Really astonishing to accomplish all that we did in one short week! From the minute our tour started, we were on the go! As usual, beautiful accommodations and meals. SO many brilliant activities for the kids (and the young-at-heart). The only thing I would've liked was a little bit of "down time" so my little one could've enjoyed the pool(s) more.

Most Memorable Moment:

Our Viking Splash tour was fantastic! From the second we donned our Viking helmets and started yelling at unsuspecting 'Celts' on the street, it was a great time. Also, the family game day at Castlemartyr: Driving the pony and trap, and hurling with the local girls was SO FUN!
