The West Coast Experience is our most popular 7 night driving holiday package. It includes some of Ireland’s most iconic sights and will leave you with endless memories of the diverse scenery and cultural differences, from one side of the country to the other. Highlights include: The Wild Atlantic Way, Connemara, Killarney National Park, Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula & Kilkenny Castle.  While the accents and dialects will vary greatly from County Dublin in the East, to the western counties of Cork, Kerry and Clare, the one unchanging constant will be the level of friendliness, humour & welcome that you receive throughout your travels. While the suggested tour itinerary clearly outlines how you will be able to visit many of Ireland’s most historical locations and attractions, make sure to take time-out to get to know the local people and their culture.
