This tour captures the best of what Dublin, the ancient east coast and Belfast have to offer.
Staying 4 nights in a top Dublin hotel, you will get a taste of many different experiences, while having a base in a capital city famed for its friendliness.
Get to know Dublin with a personalized guided tour of Dublin city, finding the capital’s major attractions such as Trinity College, the Book of Kells, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Christchurch Cathedral and the Guinness Storehouse. Beyond these well-known highlights, you’ll also be introduced to “hidden Dublin”, her best loved neighbourhoods and attractions chosen to match your interests.
Day trips with your own Driver Guide mean you can relax while being immersed in the Irish landscape and her stories. This trip can be tailored to your interests and heritage but as a taster, we suggest including Wicklow, Newgrange, Kilkenny and Northern Ireland.
Ireland’s rich history is awe-inspiring when you visit Brú na Bóinne, Newgrange & the Boyne Valley, an ancient wonder of Neolithic Age in Europe. Learn about our pagan past and marvel at passage tombs created 5,000 years ago, now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Less that south of Dublin, Wicklow is known as the ‘Garden of Ireland’. Spectacular natural scenery of mountains, lakes, meandering glens and a long coastline provide the backdrop to a unique mix of historical and religious sites such as Glendalough, impressive manor houses and gardens, lively pubs and local breweries.
The smallest city in Ireland, Kilkenny is also one of the prettiest. Medieval buildings stand with colourful shops along its narrow lanes. Black Abbey and Kilkenny Caste are particular stand-outs and your Driver Guide will show you the very places to savour the atmosphere.
Travel to Northern Ireland from Dublin to experience a different story of Ireland. Reminants of Ireland’s troubled political can still be seen but you’ll also experience the cosmopolitan and creative vibe of Belfast, where you can taste the finest seafood, hear some of the best musicians in the land and find out the real story behind the RMS Titanic.
Game of Thrones fans will be treated to close-up views of the many filming location sites scattered throughout Northern Ireland. From the Dark Hedges to Winterfell and some of the quieter scene highlights, our driver guides know just where to find them!
Throughout your trip, your Driver Guide will tailor stop-offs and detours to create an unmatched experience of Ireland…all customised for you!
