About

About Your Trip

Experience the magic of Ireland on this DreamTrip to Waterford and Kilkenny, two of the country’s most renowned cities. Enjoy a welcome reception your first night after a long day of traveling. The next day, set off on an excursion to visit the House of Waterford Crystal, dating back to 1783, and see where the world-famous high-end crystal is made. A master craftsman will demonstrate traditional techniques still used today to create the prized pieces. Stop for lunch and continue along the Copper Coast, where you will see the Victorian tourist resort of Tramore, the cozy village of Bunmahon, and return to Kilkenny through Kilmeaden, famed for its gourmet cheese. Explore the region on your own the following day, before reconvening for a farewell dinner — and perhaps a pint — at a local restaurant.

What we love:
• Waterford, Ireland’s oldest city, was originally founded by Vikings in 914 A.D.
• The Copper Coast is a stretch of coast in Southern Ireland, named for its precious metal and mining history.
• Enjoy views of the majestic Comeragh Mountains, a glaciated mountain range decorating the Irish countryside.

Destination

Kilkenny has been around since the 6th century and is set along the River Nore in southeastern Ireland. It’s renowned for its historical sites, which include the 12th-century Kilkenny Castle, the medieval city walls and St. Canice’s Cathedral. Alongside the centuries-spanning history, the city has a vibrant cultural life with numerous art and music festivals featured throughout the year. While viewing the marvelously preserved medieval architecture in the town, you’ll hear dramatic, even grisly stories about the old town and its residents — including tales of murderous witches, graveyard pigs and the Black Death — all told with a healthy dose of wit and good cheer.
