Dublin – Arrive in the Captivating Pace and History of Ireland’s Capital
The city of Dublin rises along the wide bay and the winding waters of the River Liffey that flow directly into the harbor dividing the city in tow. Bridges crisscross the waterway connecting the north-south divide, crowned by the 18th century O’Connell Bridge. The archways support the structure reaching nearly 150 feet in length and almost 165 feet in width. Georgian architecture turns the cobbled lanes at the heart of the city into a picturesque scene highlighting the days Dublin acted as the second city to the British Empire, laid over the remarkable layers of 9th-century history featuring Vikings.
The scent of sausages, hops, and baked dough emanates from the pubs. Your flight lands at Dublin Airport, where your private transfer greets you upon arrival. Settle into the comforts of your gorgeous hotel situated within the famous Georgian architecture blending the enchanting qualities of the past with modern luxury. The remainder of the day is yours to explore Dublin at your leisure, experiencing the inspiring Irish shores at the docks or enjoying the communal spirit of the city’s oldest pub, the Brazen Head, which was established in the late 12th century near Christchurch Cathedral. Every night, live music fills the gallery with cultural classics reflecting the historical value and reputation of the Emerald Isle, Dublin, and the pub itself through the sounds of fantastical stories, fiddles, and dancing.
