3 Day Itinerary: Dublin
Arrive Dublin. Meet your chauffeur 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.
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 heather clad 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.
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.
