Explore an authentic Irish farm in the heart of the County Wicklow countryside only an hour from Dublin! Ballyknocken House is set in a picturesque wooded valley below Carrick Mountain. It is run by Catherine Fulvio, a charismatic chef and a famous Irish TV personality. The farm of 350 acres specialises in Cheviot and Suffolk sheep - an ideal location to enjoy a slice of countryside living! While in Ballyknocken, why not take part in a cookery class? Catherine is a very entertaining teacher so the class is not just about baking and eating but about having fun while learning something typically Irish.
This is one of the most fascinating tours one can take in Ireland. During the ‘Troubles’, a Protestant would not drive through a Catholic area and vice versa. For this reason, the locals around the famous Falls Road, organised themselves and the Black Taxis became the communal public transport serving the Catholic areas. Today of course, things have changed, as you know for the better, and everyone is welcome to take a Black Taxi and go anywhere they please. The drivers are locals, who have converted themselves into guides, and this is the reason that the Black Taxi tours are so interesting. The driver-guides will supply commentary featuring local stories and wit. A tour not to be missed!!!!
Built in 1904, the Guinness Storehouse is an incredible building. Its massive cast-iron beams originally supported the weight of vast vats filled with Guinness in various stages of brewing. Its core is a vast giant glass pint, stretching up from the reception in the Atrium to the Gravity, the bar in the sky. The Guinness Experience marks the beginning of a journey of discovery into one of the world’s most famous brands and sets the tone for the rest of the building. Guests discover the ingredients, the processes and the passion that goes into making every pint of the Black Stuff. Discover the beautiful Gravity Bar, explore buffet stations set up throughout the Fifth Floor, enjoy the live music and the excellent atmosphere of the Guinness Storehouse. You can even learn how to pull the perfect pint of Guinness!

The Cliffs of Moher are the most amazing cliffs in Ireland, and Ireland’s most popular natural attraction.

From the Cliffs of Moher on a clear day one can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay, as well as the Twelve Pins and the Maum Turk mountains in Connemara, Loop Head to the south and the Dingle Peninsula and Blasket Islands in County Kerry.

At a local Galway City greyhound stadium, we’ll spend the night betting on various dog races while enjoying a three course meal. Soak up the infectious atmosphere of the main restaurant, or we can hire a private suite for the group.
An exclusive evening in Muckross Farm is definitely a fun evening and also educational as you will get a unique insight into the Ireland of the 1930s and 1940s. The ‘Bean an Ti’ will greet you and show you around the Farmyard and Vintage Machinery Collection; you’ll also see the Shire horses, Irish Wolfhounds, Pigs and Poultry etc… while inside the house you can have a butter making demonstration. Stop off at the crossroads and join the crossroads dancers for some traditional Irish dancing. Try your hand at Gaelic Hurling and Football. All this and much more. After an hour or two of being immersed in farming life, we head to the school house for a sumptuous meal. For larger groups, we can hire a marquee to be set up on the lawn beside the magnificent Muckross House.
