For this Ireland trip
And fine wine to sip,
Our high bidders have Barbara to thank!
Yep, County Limerick is on your itinerary! Embark on a luxury, tailor-made Irish adventure, staying at four of Ireland’s most iconic properties, and experiencing the very best in Irish history, hospitality and sport.
At home, you’ll add a truly unique line-up of library wines from the Lokoya Estate, perched atop Spring Mountain. Lokoya specializes in creating the purest expressions of Cabernet Sauvignons from four of Napa Valley’s most celebrated mountain appellations, and they have opened up their cellar to create an iconic set of nine historic wines, all of which have garnered 100-point scores from acclaimed publication, Robert Parker, Jr.’s The Wine Advocate.
Your splendid adventure begins in Ireland’s lively capital city, framed on all sides by Dublin Bay and the Dublin Mountains, and named Europe’s friendliest city twice by TripAdvisor. Grab a pint and enjoy the intimate feel of this urban hub as you see the sights—all while spending your evenings at the beautifully restored Merrion Hotel, one of Ireland’s finest Five-star hotels.
Then, set at the foot of the Slieve Bloom Mountains, Ballyfin is your next destination, a Five-star luxury country house hotel. You’ll enjoy a whiskey and wine tasting at this twenty-room, 614-acre estate, recently voted the best resort hotel in Europe. Your privately guided tour in County Kildare of the Irish National Stud thoroughbred horse breeding facility and the stunning Japanese Gardens will be a high point of your trip.
On to the private ancestral home of the Knights of Glin on the banks of the River Shannon in County Limerick. You’ll have exclusive use of Glin Castle, convenient to five world-class golf courses. Here, you’ll be treated to an evening of traditional Irish dancing and music, and perhaps place a bet or two during an evening of horse racing.
Finally, you’ll arrive at Adare Manor—sumptuously restored, brimming with gothic splendor, and perfectly appointed in every detail. Recently elected host of the 2026 Ryder Cup, you will discover every amenity including an elegant spa and the Michelin-starred restaurant, The Oak Room.
You’ll need a grand bid and the luck o’ the Irish to win this one.
