Day 1

Dublin – Arrive in Dublin to Tour the Cultural History and Traditional Sites

Dublin embodies contemporary life in Ireland and the way the traditions continue to inspire locals and visitors every day. The city center pulses with a youthful ambiance around the historic landmark of Trinity College. The library holds 200,000 volumes in the nearly 215-foot long gallery with books dating back to the 9th century. The Dublin Writer’s Museum welcomes visitors into a memorial of the famous authors of the Irish tradition, from James Joyce to Oscar Wilde and Samuel Becket, the latter of whom was a celebrated cricket star.

Your private transfer greets you at Dublin International Airport upon your arrival, escorting you to a gorgeous hotel that blends the comforts of modern amenities with the prestige of former Irish aristocracy. Your guide greets you in the hotel lobby eager to lead you on a sensational tour that will introduce you to the great heritage of Ireland and the city of Dublin. You venture to the Guinness Storehouse to explore the fabled history of the renowned Irish stout, which began in the 18th century.

The brewery encompasses seven floors with a central glass atrium allowing you to view the work of brewers and the equipment in real time. Your guide points out that the atrium is shaped like a pint of Guinness. The scent of barley blends with the aromas of caramel and chocolate. At the end of the tour, the wooden embellishments in the Gravity Bar offer you a comfortable space in which to taste a delicious pint. The bartender pours half, waits for the foam to settle, and then finishes the pour to allow the enriched flavors to flourish.

You take your first sip of the traditional Irish stout to find a delicious aroma of coffee and a touch of malt accentuating the smooth and creamy texture. In the evening, you visit a traditional pub, which opened its doors nearly 300 years ago, and preserves the Victorian décor as a part of the country’s history. Even Michael Collins frequented the bar while gathering intel on the British Secret Service during the War of Independence.
