At a Glance

Top of the morning to you! Discover that the grass is always greener on the Emerald Isle as you and your grandchild hike part of the incredible Ring of Kerry. Together, transport yourselves back in time in medieval towns and trek atop towering cliffs, watching the ocean crash against the rocks below. Learn about the colorful flowers that bloom in the valleys and then watch a lively sheepdog round up its herd. When you’re not hiking along the edge of the Emerald Isle, take an Irish dance lesson to learn a jig and trot through the countryside on horseback — all while creating memories of a lifetime together.
