Discover the essence of Ireland and some of the most stunning corners of Europe

Explore this spectacular route in your car and at your own pace, taking in Ireland's most picturesque landscapes and natural settings, which have been a source of inspiration for many poets and filmmakers. 'East to West Route and Irish Treasures' will take you to incredibly beautiful cities such as cosmopolitan Dublin, fun and lively Galway and medieval Limerick. Immerse yourself in the history and traditions of this great country by going to charming towns such as Athlone and Kilkenny. Bask in a unique atmosphere! The itinerary covers in depth some of the places that best capture the essence of Ireland. Jump in and discover the treasures of this green land! There's the elegant Belvedere House estate with its beautiful scenery on the shores of Lough Ennell and the magnificent ruins of the Paleochristian monastery in Clonmacnoise (6th century AD), one of the most prominent religious sites and centres of thought in Europe at the time. There's Connemara National Park, with attractions like Lough Inagh, the remains of Aughnanure Castle (16th century) and Kylemore Abbey (1868). There are the spectacular Cliffs of Moher, stretching for eight kilometres as they stand defiant overlooking the sea and reaching up to 214 metres tall at their highest point. There's the magnificent Bunratty Castle and the Rock of Cashel, former seat of the kings of Munster and one of the most visited historical sites in the country. These unique places will be just a few of the calling points on our unforgettable journey. And all along the way you'll be sharing, with the cheerful people of Ireland, sumptuous cuisine and interesting cultural and leisure activities that can be adapted to all tastes and budgets. Come and explore Ireland by car, and learn why it's one of the prettiest corners of Europe!

Important remarks

- Triple rooms in Europe are generally rooms with twin beds or a double, in which a folding bed is installed to accommodate the third person. Due to the inconvenience this causes, we advise against using this option as far the possible.

- The proposed excursions and tours for each day are purely suggestions, as you can tailor the trip to suit your times, tastes and needs.

- A credit card is considered a guarantee, so sometimes you will need one for check-in at hotels.

- Hotels usually have cots available. Otherwise, babies will have to share a bed with an adult.

- To pick up your rental car, you'll need a credit (not debit) card in the name of the person who made the booking, who must also be the named driver of the vehicle.

- Consult the necessary documentation to enter the destinations visited and for transit in the countries where air stopovers are made.

- This itinerary has been developed in collaboration with the Irish Tourist Office.
