Day 1: DUBLIN, IRELAND
Céad míle fáilte—a hundred-thousand welcomes! Your Local Host will help you maximize your time in the “Fair City.”
Day 2: DUBLIN
Morning guided sightseeing takes you past St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the largest church in Ireland, along elegant Georgian squares, and statue-lined O’Connell Street. Look out for the effigy of Oscar Wilde, reclining on a huge granite stone and seemingly without a care in the world; or Molly Malone, commemorating the young woman featured in the local ballad Cockles and Mussels.
Finally, visit the Old Library at TRINITY COLLEGE, and see the famous 1,200-year-old Book of Kells. It is testimony to Dublin’s literary tradition, dating back over a thousand years, when monks would transcribe the Bible into beautiful manuscripts.
NOTE: Dublin sightseeing might take place on Day 1; the Hop-On/Hop-Off ticket in Belfast is valid for 48 hours and can be activated on the day of arrival.
Day 3: DUBLIN
Discover all that Dublin has to offer on your own or try some of the suggestions from your Local Host: encounter beautiful countryside and local villages on a Wicklow Mountains, Valleys, and Lakes tour; or in the evening, join a Traditional Irish Music Pub Crawl through historic Temple Bar.
Day 4: DUBLIN–BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND
Journey to Belfast by TRAIN (First class).
Day 5: BELFAST
Enjoy your HOP-ON/HOP-OFF SIGHTSEEING TOUR, which will take you past all the city’s attractions, including City Hall, the Albert Memorial Clock Tower, Queens University, the murals in Falls Road and Shankill Road, and the Parliament Buildings at Stormont. Also included is a ticket to the fascinating TITANIC EXHIBITION, where you learn all about the building of the largest passenger steam ship, its maiden voyage, and the tragic night of April 14, 1912.
Day 6: BELFAST–LONDON, ENGLAND
Travel to London by AIR on selected flights.
Day 7: LONDON
Morning guided sightseeing includes all of London’s famous landmarks. Drive past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben; Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married; Whitehall’s mounted horse guards; the Prime Minister’s Downing Street; and Piccadilly Circus. Take photographs of the London Eye, the giant Ferris wheel situated on the riverbank, and the Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe.
Visit ST. PAUL’S CATHEDRAL. Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece with its world-famous dome is an iconic feature of London’s skyline, and the awe-inspiring interior holds fascinating stories about its history. The final highlight is the ceremonial pageantry of the Changing of the Guard (if held).
Day 8: LONDON
