Updated Guidance for Cruises Departing the U.S and Europe. View health and travel requirements
Nicknamed the Emerald Isle for its sprawling green landscapes that border the rugged coastline, Ireland has long been a draw for travelers. Ireland cruises are a relaxing and exciting way to explore this northern region of Europe. You’ll visit historic medieval castles, tour ancient Celtic ruins, and enjoy the warm hospitality of the people as you learn about and experience their culture.
Ireland cruises bring you to places like Belfast, where you can explore the Titanic Quarter and visit sites like St. George’s Market. In Cork, take a walk through the English Market, tour Blarney Castle, and kiss the famed Blarney Stone. You'll have an opportunity to visit the southern seaport of Waterford, known for its spectacular crystal glassware. On a European cruise to Ireland with Celebrity, you’ll enjoy enriching days ashore along with a contemporary, luxurious setting on board.
This beloved national park in Ireland stretches out from the city of Killarney and includes part of the beautiful, 100-mile Ring of Kerry drive, a circuit of green fields where sheep graze, rolling hills, serene lakes, and slumbering castles. Top sights to see along the way include Torc Waterfall, Ross Castle, and Ladies View lookout point.
Join an Irish whiskey tasting at Midleton Distillery, have a pint of the world-famous Guinness at a local pub, and sip on Irish Coffee (made with whiskey, coffee, and cream). Enjoy traditional Irish folk music and learn how to dance a jig with locals. You'll enjoy the “craic” – the lively spirit, conversation, and warm culture of the Irish people at each stop along your cruise.
Ireland is home to a number of formidable castles, many of which date back to medieval times. A couple that stand out are Kilkenny Castle, the origins of which date back 800 years, and Blarney Castle, located in the southeast countryside and home to the Blarney Stone. Kiss the stone and you’ll be granted the “gift of the gab”, according to legend.
Cruises to Ireland embark in Southampton, Amsterdam, Miami (for transatlantic crossings), Fort Lauderdale (also for ocean crossings) and last between 10 and 15 nights, depending on the itinerary. You’ll sail to ports like Belfast, Cork, and Waterford in Ireland, as well as many other ports throughout the British Isles, and further afield to Iceland, and Bermuda on the transatlantic trips.
With so much to do and discover onboard, your days at sea will be as relaxing or as active as you please. Enjoy refreshing drinks at the pool as you take in the ocean breeze and the spectacular views while you sail. Choose luxurious accommodation in The Retreat and enjoy a delightful dinner at the exclusive Luminae. Finish off the evening with a dazzling Broadway-style production show.
On Ireland cruises, you’ll visit some of the most beautiful and historic destinations in Europe, and see some of the most famous sites in the Emerald Isle. Shop for sweets at the English Market in Cork and visit the famous House of Waterford, where some of the world's finest crystalware is made. Wander through the cobblestoned streets of Cathedral Corner in Belfast, and explore the superb Titanic Belfast attraction. Let your sense of adventure come alive on these fantastic luxury cruises with Celebrity.
