Hotel Location
Day 1: Depart the United States and relax on an overnight flight to Dublin.  Ireland is five hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time and most flights from New York to Dublin are around 7-8 hours so you’ll want to sleep on your flight and arrive in Dublin ready to explore!
 
Day 2:  Arrive at Dublin Airport and collect your rental car.  Take off to your first destination- the 5-star Heritage Golf & Spa Resort in County Meath.  This incredible property will set the standard for your vacation and you will not be let down.  
 
Days 3 and 4:  Following County Meath you will take the drive to the coastal city of Cork for a two night stay at the 4-star Imperial Hotel.  Cork is home to the Blarney Castle and Stone which will make for a lovely afternoon day-trip.  Legend has it that if you kiss the Blarney Stone you will be given the gift of eloquence and persuasion otherwise known as the gift of gab!
 
Days 5 and 6:  After your stay in Cork you will drive across Ireland to the city of Galway.  Spend two nights in Galway at the 5-star Hotel Meyrick, just off of Eyre Square.  You will find shopping, restaurants, bars and more in Eyre Square.  
 
Days 7 and 8:  The final two nights of this Ireland vacation package will definitely be the highlight with accommodations at the 4-star Brooks Hotel.  You will have three included tours starting with the Jameson Distillery.  The Jameson Distillery offers visitors a peek into the making of this delicious whiskey along with a taste at the Discovery bar afterwards.  You will also take a tour of the Guinness Storehouse which includes a pint at the Gravity Bar, overlooking the entire city!
 
Day 9:  After traveling throughout Ireland and tasting all of the best whiskeys, you will head home.

Testimonials

We wanted to see Ireland but were nervous about driving. Sceptre found our chauffeur, Pat, and he knew everything about the history and geography around us… he did a great job negotiating the hairpin curves on the Ring of Kerry. Can’t imagine a better vacation!
Anna M.

With Sceptre we were able to make a vacation that was really unique. We stayed in two castles, did some serious shopping, and spent a lot of time out in nature. One of the best things about Ireland is its beautiful scenery, and we were always exactly where we wanted to be.

 

VERONICA H.

Ireland was wonderful!  We learned so much and had such a nice time from beginning to end.  Our driver, Cornelius, was so knowledgeable and friendly and accommodating!  Thank you for planning this very memorable vacation for us - we were beyond satisfied, it all exceeded our expectations!
