      Itinerary

      Day 1
      Welcome to Ireland

      Arrive at Dublin Airport and meet our driver/guide and transfer into the City for sightseeing.

      Enjoy a panoramic tour of Dublin City, discovering the north and south side of the River Liffey. This area offers great striking monuments such as the GPO (General Post Office) on the city main thoroughfare, O'Connell Street, or the Custom House along the quays, as well as the Phoenix Park, the largest public park in Europe.


      The south side appears more sophisticated with its vast Georgian squares, such as Merrion Square, where Oscar Wilde’s House can still be found (today owned by an American College), its colourful doors, along with Grafton Street and its quality shops.


      Not so far from St. Stephen’s Green, in Kildare St., you will see the house of Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula. This part of the city is also dominated by the students of Trinity College, where the famous Book of Kells is permanently exhibited in its library.


      The university is facing the medieval district where Dublin Castle and the two Anglican Cathedrals can be found.


      Visit Trinity College.

      Trinity was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth 1st on grounds confiscated from an Augustinian priory and is the oldest University in Ireland.


      The Campanile, erected in 1852, was built on what is believed to be the centre of the monastery. Built to further the education of the ruling Anglo-Irish families, restrictions were imposed to prevent Catholic from attending courses. These restrictions were not fully lifted until the 1970’s. Trinity however admitted women in 1902, earlier than most British universities.


      Most of the main buildings off the main square were built during the Georgian period, some of which replaced older buildings. Within its walls, you will be able to admire Parliament Square and its 18th Century edifices.


      Trinity College has had many famous students such as Jonathan Swift and Samuel Beckett who later became a lecturer in French at the university. The Inter-denominational Church is very much worth a visit, should it be open during our visit.

      Excellent trip. Accommodations were outstanding. The hotel was great about opening the kitchen early for days we had early tee times scheduled. Our driver, James, was a key contributor to the overall enjoyment of the trip. He knew the best pubs and the history of the places we visited. His knowledge and sense of humor made him an integral part of our adventure. Having all the arrangements coordinated and scheduled was a huge convenience. Wouldn't do a trip like this any other way going forward.
