You’ll have the chance to visit some of the country’s most picturesque villages on your early morning drive to Dublin.

  • The Rock of Cashel: Set high on a limestone outcrop, this sprawling abbey—originally a castle—looms over the town with a High Cross and Romanesque chapel, and a 12th-century round tower.
  • Giddy-Up: Curragh, Ireland’s equestrian capital, is home to sleek thoroughbreds, lavish country estates, and the annual Irish Derby; you’ll pass through on your drive.
  • Drink like a local in Dublin: Choose from more than 100 whiskeys at Bowes Lounge or grab a cozy corner at John Kehoe’s
