Check in at the hotel is at 2:30 pm, for those arriving early, the hotel will hold your bags so you can go out and begin exploring Dublin! Dublin, the capital of Ireland offers much to see and do. The city offers a wealth of history (from the GPO to Trinity College to Kilmainham Gaol), a bevy of shopping with fantastic shopping on Grafton and Henry streets and a loads of pubs with entertainment to choose from. An easy city to walk and enjoy the sites, but we have included the famous DoDublin city bus hop-on hop-off tour for you to get around the city. This is a one-day pass, which can be used on arrival or on your 2nd day in the city. The choice is yours. Overnight in Dublin.

Day 02, Tuesday: Independent Dublin!

If you chose not to use your Hop On Hop Off bus pass yesterday, today would be the perfect opportunity to do so. This tour offers 33 stops throughout Dublin, bringing you to the most iconic sites along the way. From the Dublin Writers Museum to Guinness, Jameson's, St. Patrick's Cathedral and more. It is the best way to see Dublin with excellent guides and lively commentary. This evening we have arranged dinner and a show for you at the Irish House Party.

Day 04, Thursday: Roscommon - Sligo - Roscommon

A leisurely departure from our castle hotel, we travel a short distance to the Arigna Mines, where we enjoy the unique Arigna Mining Experience.

After touring the mine, we travel along scenic Lough Allen to Dromahair and the lake isle of Innisfree, immortalized by the poet William Butler Yeats. Continue on to the small village of Drumcliffe and the final resting place of W.B.
