Dublin is full of treats and treasures – all of which are just waiting to be explored! On this break, you can wander around the heart of Dublin’s city centre with an expert tour guide and find out all about the history of these cobbled streets and learn lots of interesting facts along the way. On day 3, we swap land for water on a guided commentary tour along Dublin’s Grand Canal! There is also free time lined up on both days so that you can explore this wonderful city in in your own time and at your own pace.
DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – After pick-ups, we catch our ferry from Holyhead to Dublin. After, we make our way to the Regency Hotel.
Day 2 – This morning, there is a guided walking tour of the city where you can spot major landmarks along the way. Highlights include: Kilmainham Gaol, the Millennium Spire and Trinity College. After, you have free time to explore the areas that caught your eye the most. If you like Guinness, you’ll love the Guinness Storehouse, or if you’d prefer to stay in the heart of the city, Temple Bar is filled with a variety of pubs, restaurants and cafés, so there’s something to suit all tastes.
Day 3 – We start the day on a traditional Guinness barge with a morning cruise along Dublin’s Grand Canal. Here, you can follow the journeys originally taken in the 18th Century where cargos of Guinness were transported from the brewery to the port and then to overseas and beyond. Sit back and relax whilst listening to the commentary and enjoying complimentary tea/coffee on board. After, there is free time to perhaps shop around for some souvenirs or to wander around one of the local galleries or museums.
Day 4 – After a leisurely breakfast, we set off for our journey home.
