Visit the Irish Coast and Countryside at Your Own Pace
A little island across the sea, Ireland is only roughly the size of Maine. You can travel from the east coast to the west in less than three hours, so it’s perfect for exploring by car. Instead of limiting yourself to a single city, you can easily see several sides of the Emerald Isle.
Stay at Rossmore Manor in Donegal to the north for a bayside retreat that’s only about an hour from Slieve League, home to some of the highest cliffs in Ireland. In town, a short 12-minute drive away, you can see the imposing Castle Donegal, which was originally built in the 15th century, or shop for some of the area’s signature tweed.
Experience some more local flavor with a stay at Murphy’s Farmhouse in Kerry, which is on a family-run working farm. It’s an excellent base from which to make the famous Ring of Kerry drive. The 111-mile circuit takes you past lakes, mountains, and medieval ruins. An optional tour package ($99/person) completes the Irish experience with tours of Waterford Crystal, the Guinness Storehouse, admission to Blarney Castle, and more.
