Private recital at St. Fin Barre's Cathedral

Attend a private recital in the triple-spired, Gothic Revival St. Fin Barre's Cathedral in Cork

The magnificent, three-spired St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral in the Irish city of Cork looks every bit like a grand Gothic cathedral from the medieval era, but it’s actually a Gothic Revival masterpiece designed in the 19th century by English architect William Burges, and completed in 1879, on a site connected with Cork’s patron saint, the 6th-century abbot Finbarr of Cork. But this 19th-century cathedral is no less majestic than its medieval counterparts – it’s adorned by more than 1,200 sculptures inside and out, including gargoyles – and is a fitting setting for a private musical recital for Tauck guests only.

Dromoland Castle

Nights 1 and 2

Live the royal life for two nights at Dromoland Castle, ancestral home of the O’Briens

Spend two nights at one of the most famous castles in Europe. This was the ancestral home of the Dromoland O’Briens, who were the Kings of Thomond and whose lineage goes back 1,000 years to Brian Boru, the only High King of Ireland. From your first glimpse of Dromoland and its enchanting lake, as you pass through the castle gates, you’ll fall under Dromoland’s spell. Under glittering antique chandeliers, descend grand staircases and meander through elegant hallways and beautifully furnished rooms. The decor is just as you imagine a castle should be... plush, sink-in sofas in front of large, ornate fireplaces with blazing log fires. And that's only the beginning...

We knew we were in for a special experience when we checked into our first hotel, Dromoland Castle. The entire vacation was pure pleasure and stress-free.

Small Group Departures

Our small group departures, averaging just 24 guests, are designed for travelers who want more time to experience each destination up close and personally. One of the benefits of small group travel is the personalized service and attention you’ll enjoy. Small groups enable our Tauck Directors to spend more time in the places you explore with more opportunities to connect with them. Smaller groups foster camaraderie and lasting friendships among like-minded travelers; you'll engage more closely with local experts and enjoy enhanced insider access, ease of travel and freedom to linger longer.

Solo Traveler Savings

Traveling solo doesn't mean traveling alone – with Tauck, it means camaraderie on a journey with like-minded travelers who share similar interests, enjoying the spirit of travel that makes exploring the world a necessary part of life – and sharing the special travel experiences found on Tauck’s guided land trips and cruises that create lifetime memories. For 90+ years, solo travelers have found a special "travel" home with Tauck in destinations the world over – and we’re offering solo travelers an additional reason to travel with Tauck – special Solo Traveler Savings on select departures.

What you need to know

Before You Go

Required

Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you; a valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. Contact your booking agent for information about all necessary documents required for your journey, such as passport and visa information or documentation required for transportation security measures.

Important Information

Health and Activity

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey. To fully enjoy most journeys, you should be in good health and able to walk reasonable distances; some of the most memorable sightseeing can only be accomplished on foot and may include unpaved and uneven surfaces. Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.

Protect Your Travel Investment

Deposit Protection Plan

Deposit Protection Plan – Tauck provides a “Deposit Protection Plan” at a cost of AUD $75 per person per tour or cruise. The cost is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid at the time of booking with your deposit. It only applies when you cancel your tour or cruise prior to final payment date. The deposit held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties in relation to air, rail travel, hotels, transfer or applicable cruise cabins. When booking airfares through Tauck (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore the credit being held. We will only credit the remainder of deposit to a future tour or cruise booking if you book within 24 months of cancellation of the original Tauck tour or cruise. This offer expires after the 24 months. We will only credit the remainder of the deposit to a future tour or cruise booking Balance Due and it can’t be used as a credit for the initial deposit of a future tour or cruise booking. The Tauck “Deposit Protection Plan” only covers a Tauck tour or cruise and it does not replace Travel Insurance, which we recommend at the time of booking.

Our trip to Ireland was fantastic!!! Our stay at Dromoland Castle was the highlight of our trip and the carriage ride is a must. We were also very lucky and enjoyed beautiful sunshine most of the week. Prepare for a long day 5 when traveling from Cork to Dublin, via Waterford and a visit to the Emigrants Museum and dinner.

Most Memorable Moment:

Along with Domoloand Castle, The Cliffs of Moher are a must and again we enjoyed good weather to appreciate the awesome views. The tour of Waterford, Blarney Castle, Trinity College and Glendalough Ruins are incredibly interesting and a must see. Enjoyed our free time in pubs testing great Irish Ales.


All accommodations were top notch, I especially liked the Trump Golf resort in Doonbeg. Our guide and bus driver made the trip very restful and educational. When one of the guests fell and hurt her arm they were quick to arrange medical attention for her. I had just enough free time to do exploring and shopping.

Most Memorable Moment:

The visit to Malana View Dairy farm in Ballydonahue. This brought back memories of my dad who recited poems frequently. Also the Gran Post Office where the Easter Uprising took place in 1916.
