Welcome to Ireland!  Upon arrival at Dublin Airport we'll be met and head to the city to enjoy a Panoramic City Tour of Dublin.  This tour will introduce us to all the main sights, which we may then revisit at our leisure. We will visit the elegant Georgian squares, famous for its architecture and of course its famous doors. Highlights of the tour will be a visit to Trinity College and a stop at St Patrick’s Cathedral. Built in 1192, it is one of Ireland’s largest cathedrals made famous by its former dean Jonathan Swift, author of “Gulliver’s Travels.” Pass by Christchurch, built by the Anglo-Norman’s in 1172 to replace an earlier church built by the Vikings in 1038, on our way to the Phoenix Park with its many monuments including the Papal cross. Return to the city centre via the Quays, passing by the Guinness Brewery, and Collins Barrack, now part of the national museum, before arriving back into O’Connell Street and the city centre.

Later we visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  Built in honour of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral stands adjacent to the famous well where tradition tells St Patrick baptized converts on his visit to Dublin. The parish church of Saint Patrick on this site was granted collegiate status in 1191 & raised to cathedral status in 1224. The present building dates back to 1220 & is the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland (a church of the Anglican Communion). Gothic in style, its splendid interior is adorned with funeral monuments including The Boyle Family Memorial & the grave of Dean Jonathan Swift who was dean here until his death in 1745. The Chancel has ornate stained-glass windows & spectacular choir stalls adjoining the Altar were once the seats of the Knights of St Patrick. The massive west towers house a large peal of bells whose ringing tones are very much a part of Dublin’s character today

The magnificent vessel is now moored at New Ross quayside. We will learn about the historic background to the Great Famine, and the reason why so many people were forced to emigrate on sailing ships like Dunbrody to America in the mid-19th century. We will then follow in the footsteps of a group of Famine emigrants as we board the Dunbrody, ffitted out exactly as it would be for a voyage. We will encounter actors, playing the role of emigrants, in their cramped quarters.

Kilkenny - Dublin (B)

This morning we will visit Kilkenny Castle.  One of the most instantly recognised buildings in Ireland, Kilkenny Castle has been an important site since it was built by the Anglo-Normans in the 12th century. The castle has been remodelled in Victorian times and set in extensive parklands which was the principal seat of the Butler family, Marquesses and Dukes of Ormonde. 

We will then journey to Wicklow and visit Glendalough Monastic Site.  The English name Glendalough originated from the Irish “Gleann Dá Locha”, which translates as  "The valley of the two lakes". It was here that St. Kevin, son of the king of Leinster, founded a monastery in the 6th century. From a simple beginning the site grew to become famous as a centre of learning throughout Europe. Standing for 600 years it was destroyed in 1398. Much of what is to be seen today dates from the 10 to 12th century. One of the most attractive features is the fine 34m high round tower. A cathedral, stone churches and decorated crosses also survived albeit as ruins. Beautifully scenic walking trails take visitors on a circular route by the lakes.

Later continue to Powerscourt House and Gardens. Originally built as a castle in 1300 and home to the Wingfield family from 1603 for 350 years Powerscourt House was much altered in the 18th century, when the famous German born architect Richard Castle remodelled the castle and grounds. It involved the creation of a magnificent mansion in the Palladian style around the shell of the earlier castle. A small exhibition brings to life the rich history of the estate. The house is now home to the best of Irish design in gifts, clothes, and furniture in the Avoca Stores and the Interiors Gallery.
