Vacation Overview

Why is Ireland such a special place in the hearts and minds of travelers? Sure and begorrah, the answer is the stuff of Irish legend and lore. From Limerick to Killarney to Dublin—take plenty of free time to connect with Ireland at your own pace (with the wind at your back). Choose à la carte optional excursions on MyCosmos to help you explore the Emerald Isle, with your Tour Director‘s tips and your CosmosGO app keeping you on the right path to find that wee bit of Irish in us all. Your escorted vacation in Ireland with Cosmos Lite is an Irish blessing of abundant free time, optional excursions, your CosmosGO mobile app, and a hands-on Tour Director ready to assist with directions, suggestions, and local lore.

Start with two nights in Limerick, known for its warm, authentic Irish personality—as well as the famed poetry of the colorful Limerick. An ideal walking city, Limerick is the perfect place to explore with your CosmosGO app to discover the sites—from castle to cathedral to museum to pub. There’s an optional opportunity to visit the stunning Cliffs of Moher and the lively city of Galway. Next, set off for one of Ireland’s loveliest towns, Adare, with stone buildings, thatched cottages, medieval ruins, and the real treasure—freshly baked scones. Spend two nights in Killarney—the Town in the Park—and enjoy the Irish shops, Killarney National Park, or any of your MyCosmos optional activities including the beautiful Ring of Kerry drive. Pass through the splendid scenery of the Kerry Mountains on the way to County Cork. Stop in Blarney, famous for its “Stone of Eloquence” that promises the Irish gift of gab. Share photos of your Irish adventure with your friends and family back home with your CosmosGo app so they won’t think you’re full of Blarney!

On to the fair city of Dublin with its statue-lined O’Connell Street, Georgian squares, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Trinity College. You’ll soon discover that Dublin is as intimate as a village and friendly as your favorite pub. Walk the streets that gave us the literary works of Yeats, Beckett, and Joyce. Maybe reserve a spot on MyCosmos for a tour of the Guinness Storehouse to sample a pint of the “black stuff” or an evening of the best of Irish music, song and dance at Taylor’s Irish Cabaret. Your Cosmos Lite guided tour of Ireland is packed with free time and optional excursions to make it your lucky day, every day—like a pot-o-gold to spend just as you please!
