Fall in love again in Ireland. Sumptuous interiors and elegant facades, rich and supple furnishings and striking balustrades, the castles and manor houses of Ireland are among the finest in the world. Throw in the unmatched grandeur of the Irish countryside, breathtaking sceneries and the inimitable warmth of her incomparable people, and this is a trip that any duke, duchess or a couple would die for.
Welcome to the Capital
You land this morning in darling Dublin, the capital city of the Republic of Ireland and its political center for centuries, the home and heart of some of Ireland’s greatest literary minds. After dropping your bags off at your hotel, take a stroll through Dublin’s enchanting streets, wondering at how a city so large can be so intimate. Explore the cultural offerings available to the south of the River Liffey, including the National Museum, the National Gallery, and the Old Library and Treasury at Trinity College, Dublin, where you’ll find the indescribable Book of Kells, the pride and joy of Ireland’s monastic past.
The scene north of the Liffey is also a treat, with prominent statues of prominent Irish poets and patriots found on the entire stretch of O’Connell Street. Take in a pint or two at a pub in Temple Bar, a bustling strip of streets cordoned off from most vehicular traffic and filled with the hearty smells of traditional Irish fare, the stirring sounds of Irish music, and the sights of native Dubliners celebrating the end of another work day.
