Daily Itinerary 

Paddy’s Irish Pub Tour 2020 Itinerary

Day 1: Dublin Tour & Welcome Drink
Tour starts 2:00 PM at your Dublin hotel. Set out on an introductory
tour of central Dublin, a friendly city famed for its wit and sense
of fun. Enjoy a welcome drink and dinner with your group at The
Church Café Bar and Restaurant; this converted building is where
brewer Arthur Guinness was married, playwright Sean O’Casey was
baptized, and where Handel practiced the organ before the first-ever
public performance of his “Messiah” in 1742. (D)

Day 2: Kilkenny & Smithwick’s Experience
Head to the small, historic city of Kilkenny for a guided walking
tour along its Medieval Mile to experience its rich heritage, narrow
streetscapes, and well-preserved merchants’ houses. Stop at one
of its classic pubs. Smell the hops and enjoy a sample on a tour of
Smithwick’s Experience, telling the story of the popular brewery in
the heart of the city since 1710. Spend some free time browsing in
charming Kilkenny before dinner. (B, D)

Day 3: Blarney Castle & Killarney
Travel on to visit Blarney Castle to kiss the famous stone, which
legend promises will bestow the “Gift of the Gab” or explore the
beautiful gardens. Pass through County Cork to the lively town of
Killarney – a draw for visitors to Ireland since the 18th century –
where you will have free time after dinner to explore some of its
friendly pubs, many with live music. (B, D)

Day 4: Dingle Peninsula & Celtic Whiskey Bar Experience
Head to the glorious Dingle Peninsula, made famous by two
movies, “Ryan’s Daughter” and “Far & Away,” which showcased the
wonderful scenery. Visit the South Pole Inn for an Irish coffee and
learn about Tom Crean, an early explorer who bravely journeyed
to the South Pole and opened the pub in 1927 after his return to
Ireland. Visit a farm for an immersion into traditional farming life and
watch skilled sheepdogs demonstrate their talents at herding. Enjoy
some free time and lunch on your own in the town of Dingle. In the
evening, head to the Celtic Whiskey Bar in Killarney for a tasting,
chocolate pairing, and dinner. (B, D)

Day 5: Cliffs of Moher & Galway
Embark on a ferry ride across the wide River Shannon Estuary.
Take in the spectacular beauty of the Cliffs of Moher, soaring 700
feet above the Atlantic surf. Walk along the top of the cliffs for
views across Galway Bay to Connemara and the Aran Islands. In
the evening, have an early dinner at your hotel, then head out for
a CIE Tours Exclusive: Private early access to a special evening
of storytelling and traditional music by the turf fire at O’Connors
Famous Pub in Salthill. (B, D)

Day 6: Sean’s Bar & Lough Lee Cruise
Spend a leisurely morning and lunchtime exploring vibrant, artistic
Galway as you please. Head to Athlone and enjoy an Irish coffee
as you cruise along Lough Ree on a replica Viking longship. Then
head to Sean’s Bar in Athlone for a CIE Tours Exclusive. Sean’s Bar
is not only the oldest in Ireland; dating back to 900 AD, it’s the
oldest in Europe, according to the Guinness Book of Records. The
sloped floors (often covered with sawdust), candlelight, and turf fire
pay nostalgic tribute to this pub’s rich history. Enjoy dinner in your
Athlone hotel this evening. (B, D)

Day 7: Guinness Storehouse & Irish Whiskey Museum
Enjoy the scenery of central Ireland as you head to Dublin on the
east coast. Visit the Guinness Storehouse in the heart of the city, one
of Ireland’s most popular attractions, and enjoy a sample of Ireland’s
iconic brew as you enjoy the panoramic view from the seventh-floor
Gravity Bar. In the evening, head to the Irish Whiskey Museum,
where you will take a short private tour and savor a tasting. In a CIE
Tours Exclusive, you’ll enjoy a special after-hours experience with an
information dinner and music from a traditional band – and they’ll
provide instruments so you can learn to play along. (B)
