Your first day therefore takes this into account and you will transfer directly to your first hotel / B&B in the beautiful village of Adare, Co. Limerick – “Ireland’s Prettiest Village”. You will spend the day at leisure exploring this wonderful location enjoying the shops, pubs, castle, monuments, and walking routes by the river. You can unwind from your travels and prepare for the tour ahead.

You'll take a leisurely ride along the smaller byroads stopping twice on route for a break. You'll stay in Dublin city within walking distance of the main attractions. You'll take the ferry to the Isle of Man in the morning.
