The Southern Bucket List 7-Day Tour

The Southern Bucket List 7-Day Tour

Our Southern Bucket List Tour visits 16 of the top 25 attractions in Ireland. After booking this tour, you may want to see the entire island – hopefully, many of you will. Is your dream location on the list?
This is a seven-day and six-night tour that takes us through key attractions across the south and southeast of Ireland. For those unfamiliar, the southeast consists of five counties: Carlow, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford, and Wexford. This is a region full of the top hurling strongholds, with Wexford also being renowned for its strawberries. We also visit the counties: Cork, Kerry and Clare. While Cork and Clare are very associated with hurling, Kerry is very much a football county.
Why not learn how to shear a sheep, or adopt a lamb while immersing yourself in some of the most breathtaking locations Ireland has to offer. Experienced local guides will be on hand to provide city tours of Waterford and Galway, while you will be free to explore Kilkenny, Killarney, Cobh and Ennis.
