Discover Ireland's historic and mystical charm
Dublin City (June 18th): Where better to start our adventures than with Ireland's global and dynamic capital. Your day includes a visit to Dublinia to learn about Dublin's past as well as an opportunity to explore the modern city on a hop-on-hop-off bus tour.
Cork City (June 25th): We'll travel to the cosmopolitan Cork city, known as Ireland's 'second city'. Your trip includes time to explore the city, as well as a visit Blarney Castle where you can 'kiss the Blarney stone' and be endowed (as legend has it) with the gift of the gab!
Glendalough and Bray (June 29th): For our final day trip we'll travel to one of Ireland's most iconic and beautiful destinations. Nestled in the Wicklow mountains, an area of outstanding natural beauty, Glendalough offers a window into Ireland's Christian past. After that enjoy some time at the seaside in the charming beach resort town of Bray.
