Itinerary

Adventure Canada itineraries may be subject to change without notice due to weather, ice, and sea conditions

  • Day 1
    Dublin

    Arriving independently in Dublin, we’ll gather to meet our Expedition Leader and fellow travellers. We’ll then explore the region, wending our way to our disembarkation point.

    Our journey by sea aboard the Ocean Endeavour begins this afternoon.

    Dublin Grafton Street
  • Day 2
    South Coast

    Many potential expedition landings awaits us along Ireland’s south coast. Our expedition team will make the most of our opportunities; we hope to enjoy hiking, photography, and birding—or potentially, town visits.

    Cobh Cathedral Interior
  • Day 3
    Clear Island and Garnish Gardens

    A ship’s cruise of Clear Island should be a hit with birders. The island is home to shearwaters, skuas, black guillemots and murres, cormorants, and storm petrels. Seals, basking sharks, and dolphins frequent the surrounding waters.

    At Ilnacullin Garnish, Bantry Bay, rare and exquisite plants form one of Ireland’s top gardens. A Martello tower offers excellent views, and a seal colony rounds out the list of attractions.

    Garnish Garden
  • Day 4
    Ring of Kerry

    This scenic route around the Irveragh Peninsula in County Kerry takes in outstanding views of coastlines, rolling rural scenery, and numerous cultural attractions. Historic sites, including castles, abbeys, mansions, and cathedrals are dotted along the route.

    Killarney National Park, “The Jewel in Kerry’s Crown,” is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. From the foot of the Macgillycuddy Reeks (the highest mountain range in Ireland) to the outskirts of Killarney, the park encompasses lakes, mountains, and plains.

    Ring Of Kerry Landscape
  • Day 5
    Southwest Coast

    Skellig Michael (Sceilg Mhichíl), a UNESCO World Heritage Site, rocketed to new fame as the fictional home of Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi. We hope to spot actual residents like puffins, petrels, and shearwaters on our ship’s cruise.

    We’ll visit the town of Dingle, rich in Irish music and culture. The town boasts historic buildings, medieval ruins, an aquarium, arts and crafts shops, and more. Thirsty visitors will find numerous pubs and a distillery.

    Dingle Ireland
  • Day 6
    Cliffs of Moher

    Rising over two hundred metres above the Wild Atlantic Way, the Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland’s most outstanding natural attractions—as attested by their popularity with visitors. They have been featured in numerous films, including The Princess Bride.

    We’ll be watching for seabirds as we ship’s cruise by the cliffs. A landing in the region will provide excellent opportunities for walking, hiking, sightseeing, and photography.

    Cliffs Of Moher 2
  • Day 7
    Aran Islands

    The Aran Islands are geologically and culturally unique. Located in Galway Bay, the limestone Islands of Inishmoor, Inishmann, and Inisheer enjoy temperate climatic conditions, and are home to diverse range of plant and animal species.

    The Arans are also bastions of Irish history and culture; a large proportion of the population are Gaelic speakers. The Aran sweater originates here; homespun of local wool in unique patterns, they are prized the world over. Inishmoor medieval hill fort will be a highlight of our visit.

    Aran Sweaters
  • Day 8
    Inishbofin and Clew Bay

    Just off the Connemara Coast lies Inishbofin. Prior to the Irish Famine, this outpost was home to 1,400 people; today the population is less than two hundred.

    Clew Bay is said to have ‘an island for every day of the year’, many of them drumlins. The town of Westport in the bay is famed for its music, history, and beauty: “The most beautiful view I ever saw in the world,” according to novelist William Makepeace Thackeray.

    Seals
  • Day 9
    Tory Island

    Toraigh (Tory Island) lies nearly fifteen kilometres off the northwest coast of County Donegal. The main spoken language on the island is Gaelic. Since the 1950s, the island has been home to a small community of artists, and has its own art gallery.

    Pub
  • Day 10
    Giant’s Causeway and Rathlin Island

    A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Causeway is a geological wonder. About 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by volcanic eruption, form ‘steps’ leading from the coastal cliffs, to below the surface of the North Sea. Numerous legends associate the causeway with the mythic hero Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool).

    Rathlin Island, the only inhabited island off Northern Ireland, is designated a Special Area of Conservation in Northern Ireland and Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

    Sunny Afternoon At Giant Causeway
  • Day 11
    Belfast

    The largest city in Northern Ireland, and its capital, is also the second-largest city on the island of Ireland. Belfast has a history as a centre for industry, particularly shipbuilding. The HMS Titanic was completed in a Belfast shipyard, and sailed from Belfast on its maiden voyage.

    Today, Belfast is a popular tourist destination, known for music, architecture, gardens, and the arts.

    Belfast Castle
  • Day 12
    Dublin

    On our last day together, we’ll wind up back where we began: Dublin. Ireland’s glorious capital—beloved of poets, musicians, and dreamers—lies at the mouth of the River Liffey.

    Once we disembark, you may enjoy exploring one of the world’s great cities, take our optional post-tour around the Isle of Man, or journey on to your next destination. Safe home!
