More cruises featuring Celebrity Equinox


  • Day 1 - Arrive in Shannon

    Celebrity Cruises Ireland and Mediterranean Explorations 

    Morning: You've arrived. We'll meet you at the airport in Shannon and whisk you away to your luxurious hotel in nearby Galway.

    Afternoon: Welcome to the lively, seaside city of Galway. Refresh from your journey with some spa-time in your hotel. Or start exploring right away. Stroll the medieval streets. Let street-performers entertain you from the front-row outdoor seats of a local pub. Either way, Galway welcomes you warmly with its unique charm.

    Evening: Galway is often referred to as Ireland's most Irish city. It's known for its vibrant energy, numerous festivals, and quaint charm. Walk across The Prom - a seaside promenade that goes from Galway to the neighboring city of Salthill. And if you're lucky, you'll hear the sounds of Irish Gaelic on your stroll.

    Meals included: On your own

  • Day 2 - The Cliffs of Moher

    Celebrity Cruises Ireland and Mediterranean Explorations

    Morning: After your complimentary breakfast, head out on your half-day guided tour to the mighty Cliffs of Moher. Take in spectacular views of the cliffs from O'Brien's Tower, the Cliff's highest point (700 feet above the Atlantic Ocean).

    Afternoon: After lunch, you'll head to Killarney in your luxury coach. Take in the stunning scenery and lush landscapes on your drive. With a sea of rolling green hills, you'll understand why Ireland is called "the Emerald Isle." Once you arrive in Killarney, the rest of the day is yours. Tour the Gap of Dunloe. Take in great views and superb photo ops of hills, valleys, and lakes.

    Evening: Pub life is a favorite local pastime. Live music can be heard throughout Killarney. "Molly Malone" anyone? Or perhaps "Let It Be?" From traditional Irish ballads to Beatles covers, there's a sing-along song for everyone. Warm up those vocal chords, grab a pint of Guinness, and croon your heart out. Or, visit the restaurant in your hotel for some local fare (and an Irish coffee nightcap, of course).

    Meals included: Breakfast and lunch

  • Day 3 - Mansions, Castles and 40 Shades of Green

    Celebrity Cruises Ireland and Mediterranean Explorations

    Morning: After breakfast at your hotel, your full-day guided tour begins. Visit Killarney National Park. There are lakes, mountains, and shades of green as far as the eye can see. Mansions and castles are next up. Explore the Muckross House, a 19th century Victorian mansion with 65 rooms and stunning gardens. The stunning 15th century Ross Castle is rich in beauty and Irish folklore.

    Optional: Explore Killarney National Park on a horse-drawn carriage ride.

    After a traditional Irish pub lunch, the adventure continues. Head through the hills and valleys of the Ring of Kerry. Take in some of the country's best views and heritage as you travel down the most famous route in Southwest Ireland.

    Evening: Corned beef and cabbage? Or fish and chips? Either way, you're in luck. Killarney offers many traditional culinary delights. Your Celebrity Concierge will help with reviews, recommendations, and reservations.

    Meals included: Breakfast and lunch

  • Day 4 - Blarney Castle and the Luck of the Irish

    Celebrity Cruises Ireland and Mediterranean Explorations

With names like Druid's Circle, Witch's Cave, and Wishing Steps, the formations are full of folklore. Make your way towards the Blarney Stone. It's been said that those who kiss the Stone will be blessed with the gift of gab and eloquence.

    Afternoon: Arrive in Cork and explore on your own. Start off with a trip to St. Anne's Church. Ring the Shandon Bells ("Amazing Grace" or "Waltzing Matilda." It's up to you). Explore Irish artisan produce and farmhouse cheese at the English Market, the oldest of its kind in Europe.

    Evening: Foodies, meet your match. You've descended on the food capital of Ireland. From Irish stew to sea-scented rock oysters, you can't go wrong. For the more adventurous, there's Drisheen, sausage made from sheep's blood, breadcrumbs and spices, served with tripe in a thickened milk sauce. Chase it down with a pint of locally brewed Murphy's or Beamish. Feeling more low-key? Wine and dine at the restaurant in your hotel before turning in for the night.

    Meals included: Breakfast and lunch
