Get to Know the Best of Ireland and Scotland

Celtic traditions come alive as you travel from Dublin, along Ireland’s coast to Northern Ireland and finally through Scotland on this 14-night vacation. Watch as master craftsmen render delicate stemware, bowls, vases and more during a stop at the House of Waterford Crystal. Observe the process, including glassblowing, from beginning to end.

In County Kerry, feel transported to the 1930s during a visit to the working farms of Muckross. Meet the farming families and learn to churn butter; later, dine with them in the Quilles Farmhouse against a backdrop of the scenic lakes of Killarney. From there, follow in the footsteps of Finn MacCool, a mythical warrior supposedly responsible for building the remarkable Giant’s Causeway. See this UNESCO World Heritage site for yourself as part of this extraordinary journey.
