While Dooley Vacations has a 6 night tour ($1400):

Upon arrival in Dublin, travelers will make the short drive to lovely Co. Meath, to the northwest of Dublin, where they will spend the first night at the four-star Dunboyne Castle Hotel. The property is home to the SEOID Spa, where guests can revel in the tranquility of the hydrotherapy pool after a soothing massage — before enjoying dinner at one of the three magnificent restaurants on the property (spa services and dinner are additional).

The next morning, continue north to Donegal, where travelers can visit sites such as Donegal Castle and the Kilclooney Domen while staying for two nights at the magnificent Lough Eske Castle Hotel and Spa. The only five-star hotel in Donegal, it sits within 43 acres of forest woodland, along the shores of Lough Eske in the shadows of the Blue Stack Mountains.

From here, journey south along the west coast of Ireland to the beautiful city of Galway where two nights await at the five-star Glenlo Abbey Hotel. Known as Ireland’s Cultural Heart, Galway is renowned for its various festivals, celebrations, and events. During the two days in Galway, travelers can soak up the artistic side of Ireland that gave to the world musical performers like The Saw Doctors and Siobhan McCormack. Or, if history is a favorite passion, visit the Church of Ireland St. Nicholas’ Collegiate Church, located in the heart of the city. It is the largest medieval church still in everyday use in Ireland.

For the final stop on this vacation, travelers will make their way back across the heart of the country to spend one final night in Dublin at the four-star Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel.
