Ireland's capital meets Wales

Dublin - Cardiff

OVERVIEW

3 Day Itinerary: Cardiff

Day 1
Arrive Cardiff Airport. 

Meet your chauffer at the airport. He will bring you to the hotel, where your walking tour guide will await you. 

Enjoy 3-4 hours of touring the highlights. 

Cardiff, or Caerdydd as one would say in Welsh, is the capital city of Wales. A truly modern and cosmopolitan city with an event calendar to rival any other European capital. 
In the Cardiff Bay area, you’ll find some stunning showpiece buildings; the Millennium Centre, a fantastic arts and cultural venue, the spanking new slate and glass Welsh Parliament Building and in the city centre, the Millennium Stadium with its ‘Thunderbirds are go’ sliding roof (host venue of the very first Olympic event in the London 2012 games). But despite all that forward thinking, it’s a city that has not forgotten its past. 

The Civic Centre and National Museum are one of the finest in Europe and Cardiff Castle an unexpected city centre surprise.

Day 2
South of Wales with the driver-guide for up to 8 hours touring. 

Visit the open-air Museum of Welsh Life at St. Fagans, with its restored buildings and exhibits on Welsh culture. The Museum shows how the people of Wales lived, worked and spent their leisure time over the last five hundred years. The Museum stands in the grounds of the magnificent St Fagans Castle, a late 16th century manor house generously donated by the Earl of Plymouth. 

While resting on ancient foundations, Castell Coch (Red Castle) is relatively modern, the by-product of a vivid Victorian imagination, assisted by untold wealth. The Middle Ages fascinated the Victorians as much as the Victorians fascinate us today. High Gothic was the order of the day. The ‘eccentric genius’ William Burges was given free rein by his paymaster, John Patrick Crichton-Stuart, the 3rd marquess of Bute, to create a rural retreat to complement the opulence of his main residence, Cardiff Castle. He didn’t hold back. Dazzling ceilings, over-the-top furnishings and furniture were liberally applied. Detailed architectural drawings still survive today and following Burges’s death in 1881, colleagues faithfully continued work on the interiors for another ten years. The castle was not suitable for, nor was it intended to be, a permanent residence and the family’s visits were infrequent. Return to the hotel.

Day 3
Free day in Cardiff.

Day 4
Private transfer to Cardiff Airport.

3 Day Itinerary: Dublin

Day 1
Arrive Dublin. 

Meet your chauffer at the airport. He will bring you to the hotel, where your walking tour guide will await you. 

Enjoy 3 hour walking tour of Dublin. Dublin has long been a centre of art and culture. Stroll through the elegant Georgian streets of Merrion and Fitzwilliam Squares, shop in the elegant emporiums of Grafton Street and Powerscourt Townhouse, explore the collections of the National Museum and National Gallery, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, and many fine small private collections. The range of art and artifacts is enormous, and you will have no problem spending many hours enthralled. 

The city is over a thousand years old, and many of the towns and settlements that surround it are equally ancient. Successive centuries have left their distinctive overlays of character and architecture which means that Dublin has a wealth of historically significant and fascinating sights to explore such as Dublin Castle, where the Normans ruled from the 12th Century, St Patrick’s Cathedral, of which Jonathan Swift was Dean, and Trinity College, famous for The Book of Kells and for its alumni who include Oscar Wilde and Oliver Goldsmith.

Day 2
Driver-guide and tour to Wicklow Mountains.

County Wicklow is known as the Garden of Ireland, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s a manicured or formal kind of place. This is 750 square miles of rolling hills, mountains, and waterfalls. This is a garden as only nature could have made it – bursting with heatherclad mountains, with gushing waterfalls, dramatic valleys and sparkling hidden lakes. At the core of this exhilarating drive lies Wicklow Mountains National Park. 
The upper slopes here are blanketed with heath and bog, with lower valleys cradling enchanting treasures like Glendalough, the sixth century monastic settlement founded by St. Kevin. Visit Powerscourt which has gardens that are a magnificent combination of the aristocratic themes of French and Italian formal gardening with an impressive arboretum with over 200 variations of trees and shrubs and an entirely unexpected Japanese garden hidden in a valley in the 40 acres of splendour.

Day 3
Free day in Dublin. 

Enjoy shopping at Brown Thomas or visit Dublin Castle. Enjoy hands free shopping at Brown Thomas.
You will be accompanied by your personal shopping assistant. Visit the historic Dublin Castle and explore the Chester Beatty Library, home to the world’s second-largest collection of ancient Islamic manuscripts. 

With free admission and described by the Lonely Planet as not just the best museum in Ireland, but one of the best in Europe, the Chester Beatty Library is a must-see on any Dublin visitor’s itinerary.

Day 4
