Choose from:

  • Glendalough, Powerscourt, & the Wicklow Mountains: Dublin is a lively city. You pace around practicing poetry, dart in and out of museums, and drink and dance until you think you can play the fiddle yourself. But, after a while, you may want to escape the hustle and bustle to a more scenic and spiritual realm. And this trip takes you to such a place in under an hour. It whisks you away to an oasis of heavenly beauty and geological wonders. You get time to relax at a riverside monastic city in Glendalough. You’re treated to a saunter around the gorgeous gardens and marvelous mansion at Powerscourt. And you can peruse the local craft shops in the charming village of Avoca. So, take this tour and contrast the song and dance of the city with the peace and beauty of Glendalough, Powerscourt, and the Wicklow Mountains.
  • Connemara, Galway, & the Far West:  A culture is inseparable from its landscape. The terrain shapes the language, the climate creates the characters, and the native animals and plants determine what’s going to be for lunch. So, on this day tour, we take you deep into the scenery that crafted the history and heritage of Ireland. You venture into the peat bogs that provided fuel and heat to thousands of homes around rural Ireland. You discover the Connemara Mountains, where hundreds of Irish people fled when the English invaded in the 13th century. And you wander through the cobbled lanes and kaleidoscopically colored houses of Galway, Ireland’s Capital of Culture. Embark on this tour and learn to love the legends and landscapes of Connemara, Galway, and the far west.
  • The Blarney Stone and Rock of Cashel: To construct a medieval building was an unimaginable feat. Thousands of workers were forced to work for decades. They moved tonnes of earth, created 200ft wells, and hid secret rooms. These marvels of human ingenuity are found throughout Ireland, but none are as impressive as the Rock of Cashel and Blarney Castle. And on this tour, you get plenty of time to explore these wonders. At the Rock of Cashel, you stare in disbelief at the mix of medieval spires and Romanesque roofs. You listen in amazement to the tales of St. Patrick. And you watch the weather change over the hills of the Golden Vale. At Blarney Castle, you smooch the Blarney stone and learn the ‘gift of the gab’. You stroll through poisonous plants and witches’ caves in the grounds. And you relax by a gorgeous lake view. So, enjoy some of the most elaborate and complex constructions in Ireland on this day tour from Dublin.
  • Boyne Valley, Celtic Ireland, and Trim Castle: You’re taught to believe history is made of separate eras. The Prehistoric Period, the Pagans, the Bronze Ages, and so forth. But here’s the thing. In reality, cultures and civilisations slowly evolve, clash, and merge. And nowhere is this more apparent than in central Ireland. On this tour, you see curious Celtic art intertwined with Christian symbolism. You admire one of the grandest Norman castles and meander over the mythological landscapes of Pagan kings. And you walk along city walls that have experienced 700 years of wars before stopping in a local café for a cup of tea. Join this tour and discover the best way to travel through the cultural history of Ireland in a day.
