DESCRIPTION

Ireland is a wonderful country for road trips and hiking. Green hills and rough cliffs, wild bays, high moors and lakes, as well as lonely beaches - you can find all of this in Ireland. Since a friend of mine was studying in Ireland, we went on a short road trip through Ireland together during the holidays. Here we did great hikes, went to quaint pubs and got to know the hospitality of the Irish. We started in Dublin and rented a car right at the airport.

HIGHLIGHTS

ITINERARY


  • General Information

    Waterford is a port city in southeast Ireland and the oldest city in the country. The city was founded by Vikings in 914. For us this was the first stop as our friend studied here. The city is perfect as a first stop, as you can make day trips to Tramore and Kilkenny here.
