Arrive into Dublin Airport to meet and greet your driver/guide. Drive through the main streets to see historic buildings such as the General Post Office which was the headquarters of the rebel leaders in the famous 1916 Rising; the haunting portrait of the Famine Memorial; and rows of beautiful Georgian houses with brightly coloured doorways.
Visit Trinity College which houses the famous Book of Kells transcribed by 9th century monks, and then Christchurch Cathedral, the elder of the city’s two medieval cathedrals. Drop by St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which is adorned with Funeral monuments including the reputed tomb of Strongbow, its founder and Ireland’s first Norman Conqueror.
Unlike St Patrick’s, however, Christchurch possesses a crypt, which stretches under nearly its entire length. Much of the Cathedrals memorabilia is displayed here. Attached to the Cathedral is the Synod house, which houses Dublinia, an excellent exhibition of medieval Dublin. Check into your hotel after which the remainder of the day is free for additional sightseeing or shopping. Overnight in Dublin, Dinner, Bed & Breakfast Included.
