Dublin is the new in-capital of Europe – come on over for a break in one of the most lovely cities you might have ever seen before. Everything is vibrant, colourful and brisk. You will feel like home from the very first minute because of the famous Irish hospitality all around. Taking a walk and passing the Half Penny Bridge is like coming home. Throw a glance at the time-honoured Trinity College and the Book of Kells or at the historic St Patrick’s Cathedral. You will be impressed by the many fantastic stories they tell and even more by the elixir of life the Irish are sharing with all of their guests. You have no idea what that could be? Well, what about the „black and liquid gold“? The Guinness Storehouse will welcome you with a wonderful view from the Gravity Bar while having a taste of Irelands most famous beer. You could also pop in for a tour and a whiskey at the Jameson Distillery at Bow Street. Whatever your guests are looking for – let us create the perfect custom-tailored itinerary for them.
Day 1: Arrival at the capital of Ireland – Dublin
You arrive either by plane or ferry at probably the most lovely capital city of Europe, Dublin. Beware, you will definitely fall for the city so take your time to get a first overview of it. Have a Guinness at the hotel bar, probably the best thing for the first evening in Ireland.
Day 2: Experience the most colourful city Europes - F
Take the chance and get some insider tips from the guide who will show you around the city. Get an idea of the impressing size of Trinity College campus, the university of Dublin, which is located in the city centre. Maybe you will be lucky and see some graduates in their typical robes. The famous Dublin doors in all shades of colours will catch your eye and you will learn more about the sizes of the windows and levels of the houses which tell you stories of the past. There is so much to see and there is probably not enough time to fit everything in your "places-to-see-list" but in the afternoon you will have some leisure time to see some places on your own. We have plenty of ideas for dinner in the city, just ask.
Day 3: Wicklow Mountains – the garden of the capital - F
Today, you will be spoilt for choice: Either having some leisure time to experience the city on your own or going on a trip to the Gardens of Ireland, the Wicklow Mountains and perhaps the wonderful medieval city of Kilkenny. You will be lovestruck by the beauty of nature. Take a walk with your group or go for a little sightseeing at Glenadlough Abbey. The estate of Powerscourt House and Gardens is impressing, the perfect chance to take pictures as souvenir. Kilkenny with its long history and medieval city centre is perfect for discovering the stories of the past. The walls of the city will tell you secrets of maids, knights and bishops – you just have to listen. Later in the afternoon, you will leave for Dublin again. You can either have dinner in the hotel restaurant or have great night out in the city. Have dinner at a pub and then a night stroll through the vibrant Temple Bar district with its tiny pubs and traditional music everywhere.
Day 4: Time to say goodbye for now - F
For now you have to leave the Irish capital but you are welcome every time again! How do the Irish say? "Céad míle fáilte" which literally means a hundred thousand welcomes. You can checkout any time you like but you can never leave, that is what the Eagles said about the Hotel California but it's the same with Dublin: you fall in love with the city, you will never leave completely and will come back some time. Have a safe trip home, folks!
