CIE Tours has added itineraries in Ireland and Scotland, including a new daytripper itinerary, to its 2024 lineup.
In Ireland, the new nine-day Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way will help travelers discover the scenic landscapes of the Emerald Isle’s western coastline, visiting must-see sites along the way.
The tour kicks off in Dublin, where travelers will explore the center of Ireland’s largest city and spend the night at Clontarf Castle Hotel before moving on to Donegal for two nights in northwestern Ireland, followed by overnight stays in Westport and Adare, and two nights in Tralee.
Guests can expect to see the majestic views of the Slieve League Cliffs in Donegal, visit a traditional Irish farm and see how sheepdogs mind a herd, visits to Blarney Castle and of course, stops at Irish pubs where guests will be treated to a pint or two.
Departures for the Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way itinerary starts in March 2024 and prices begin at $2,495 per person.
