Immerse yourself in the history, heritage and culture of Dublin, a cosmopolitan capital city that still has an individual charm. As a contrast we will venture into beautiful County Wicklow, the Garden of Ireland, with rolling and mountains and hidden lakes just waiting to be discovered.
Day One: Home to Dublin
We’ll make our way from the interchange to Dublin, where we’ll check in to the Maldron Hotel Tallaght and will enjoy an evening meal. (D)
Days Two to Four: Dublin
We spend three fantastic days in Dublin during which we will enjoy two included excursions. We take in the beautiful countryside of County Wicklow visiting Blessington nestled in the Wicklow Mountains on the shores of Blessington Lakes. We then continue to Powerscourt House, a stunning 18th century house set on a hilltop amid beautiful gardens.
We also enjoy Dublin at leisure before visiting the Epic Ireland Museum, an interactive experience which uncovers the stories of the Irish people that have emigrated around the world. We will also learn about 1500 years of Irish history and the country’s achievements in music, literature, sport, politics, fashion and science.
You will have plenty of free time to enjoy the very best that Dublin has to offer. Our hotel is very near the River Liffey and just a short walk from Trinity College Dublin where you can see the ancient and elegant Book of Kells. (B,D)
Time to say goodbye today; we depart after breakfast and make our way to the interchange before returning home. (B)
Full Day: County Wicklow
We’ve got a great day ahead with a jaunt to Blessington where we can catch a glimpse of the shimmering Blessington Lakes. It’s then on to the beautiful Powerscourt House and Gardens. Surrounded by the Wicklow Mountains, this attraction is in a stunning setting.
Full Day: Dublin and Epic Ireland
Enjoy an excursion into the centre of Dublin with free time to explore at leisure. We also visit Dublin's newest immersive visitor museum, Epic Ireland, which tells the story of 10 million journeys and the roots of 70 million people. Here you can engage in a high tech experience which brings these stories to life.
