Bucket List Series #2-The luck of the Irish – Ireland (Belfast-Cork-Killarney-Dublin)

Ireland is on everyone’s bucket list and for all the right reasons. With stunning cliffs, ancient legends and scenery to die for, it is a must visit. We have curated a vacation that combines the best of ancient and modern day sites for you to experience. A range of activities have been planned to make every moment of this trip a pleasure and privilege. You also get time on your own to relax and just experience the wonder that is Ireland.

Wander around edgy Belfast and look at modern day graffiti artists at work, go on a Game of thrones location tour, see the ancient Book of Kells, experience a ghost walk, kiss the blarney stone and trek the gap of Dunloe. We have all these pleasures and more in store when you travel with us to Ireland. Come join Wonderful World for a trip you will never forget.

We are proud to share that you can look at any other group travel company to compare our offering and you will find that NO-ONE covers everything that we offer included in the price.

We personally curated each experience during our recce and realized that there are so many “must-dos” that it did not make sense to offer them as optional experiences. So, we have included them all because we don’t want to hidden costs to surprise you. So, don’t miss out on this magical adventure.
