Castle, Cliffs and Dazzling Coast

Drive the Ring of Kerry for memorable views of mountains and sea, and experience the stony isolation of the Burren, a vast limestone plateau. Brace yourself atop the windy 700-foot Cliffs of Moher, and walk among 60-million-year-old stone columns on Giant’s Causeway. Sleep like a king at a castle hotel, and visit the atmospheric ruins of Blarney Castle. Legend holds that if you plant a pucker on the Blarney Stone, you’ll receive the gift of gab.
