We will meet and begin the tour going over what the exciting weekend entails. We will then take a private tour of the city with Sandeman’s New Dublin Walking Tours. Our 2 hour tour will cover Dublin’s Castle, Medieval Walls, Viking remains, famous churches, Ha’Penny Bridge and other highlights. After the tour you can join your trip leader for an optional Irish lunch, and then you will have a little bit of free time to explore downtown Dublin before we depart for the Guinness Storehouse. Once there, we will take a tour of the brewery (included) and have a pint at the Gravity Bar, overlooking the city. Friday night is the time to enjoy a few pints with the Irish locals. You are free to soak up Dublin’s world renowned nightlife at various bars, clubs and restaurants recommended by your trip leader. You can also ask your trip leader about an optional Dublin Pub Crawl through New Europe.
On Saturday we take a day trip across the country to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway. Take in Ireland’s breathtaking landscape as we cross the iconic rolling green hills to the west coast. Situated in the County Clare on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliffs of Moher are not to be missed (entry to cliffs included). After the cliffs we’ll continue on to the City of Galway for an afternoon stop. You are free to explore the local shops, check out the pubs and lunch spots and experience traditional music. Soak up the vibe of the city while shopping for Irish wool and the traditional Claddagh ring which was first made in Galway. We return to Dublin for Saturday night where you will have one last night to sing and dance at a traditional Irish pub or check out the vibrant clubs.
Sunday we depart Dublin.
