JOIN IN ON THE CRAIC*, BOOK NOW! 

*Craic – the term for news, gossip, fun, entertainment, and enjoyable conversation, particularly prominent in Ireland.

  • Dublin

    Your first destination is none other than, the Fair City! Dublin is a must on this interrail Ireland package. Unlike other cities in Ireland, Dublin is always buzzing, no matter what day or time of the week. Hundreds of great bars in this city means you're guaranteed to find a bit of craic*. There's no shortage of things to do here, sip over a Guinness in Temple Bar, or better yet, visit the Guinness Store House. If Guinness isn't your thing, you can also visit the Jameson Whiskey Distillery. The Kilmainham Gaol located here closed in 1924 and is one of the biggest unoccupied gaols in Europe! 
  • Cork

    From Dublin, you will arrive in the culinary capital of Ireland. Be aware that locals will encourage you to gorge on cheese, chocolate, and seafood if you go to the English Market. Cork provides you with an opportunity to experience life in the 19th and 20th centuries at the Cork City Gaol, it offers a unique insight into the history of Cork, both in and out of the prison walls. With amazing local tours, beautiful seaside towns and popular day trips, you will have a lot to cover in a few days! Ireland is filled with myths and magic, so you need to visit Blarney Castle, home to the famous Blarney Stone, which according to legend, holds the power to bless anyone who kisses it with the ‘gift of the gab’.
  • Killarney

    Killarney is your stereotypical Irish town, one of the most picturesque towns in the South West of Ireland. ! Killarney is one of the perfect starting points for getting out to explore some of Ireland's most beautiful natural attractions. So have attractions such as Kerry Way walking trail, Ring of Kerry and Killarney national park on your list! Killarney is a great town with cosy pubs and a lot of stores sell local handicrafts, you definitely need to bring home a few Irish souvenirs. A unique stop on this Ireland interrail tour.
  • Galway

    Straightaway, you will understand why Galway attracts A LOT of visitors each year. And also why it's included on this Ireland interrail adventure. Those tangled lanes lined with colourful shopfronts that curve around Galway Bay create that picture-perfect city. Formerly a fishing village, Galway has reinvented itself into a vibrant and bustling destination. The city is famed far and wide for its pubs alone! Join the friendly locals as they welcome you in with open arms and bounce from one pub to the next. One thing's for certain, there is plenty of craic* to be had! Enjoy the high-spirited trad songs pouring from the pubs.
  • Belfast

    Finally, you reach Belfast. Despite the tragic end of the Titanic, Belfast residents are incredibly proud of their association with it and have a 'Quarter' and museum dedicated to the ship. Unlike the rest of Ireland, Northern Irish folks have a unique accent that may be difficult to understand, but that will not stop them from doing their best to show you a good time. Nonetheless, it's a beautiful city covered in murals demonstrating the difficult and wonderful times that Belfast has had over the last number of years. Before you go, take a tour to the Game of Thrones Filming locations, The Iron Islands, Winterfell and The Twins! (Ps, everyone you meet will tell you they have featured as an extra in the show). A great way to end your Ireland interrail journey!
