Tour Overview

Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a scenic, narrated drive through Dublin to St. Patrick's Cathedral.

En route, you will witness the city's major sights, such as St. Stephen's Green, O'Connell Street, the River Liffey, the main river in Dublin and the city's Georgian District, including Merrion Square. You will also pass the Custom House and view its elegant 18th-century Georgian architecture. Often considered the most architecturally important building in Dublin, the Custom House is the first major public building constructed in Dublin as an isolated structure with four monumental facades.

Also on your itinerary is a stroll through the grounds of Trinity College, Ireland's oldest university, and the alma mater of distinguished alumni, including Jonathan Swift of Gulliver's Travels fame, Oscar Wilde and Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett.

Next, you will travel to St. Patrick's Cathedral. Built in honor of Ireland's patron saint in 1190, it is not only the largest church in Ireland, but is also said to be one of the earliest Christian sites in Ireland where St. Patrick baptized converts. The cathedral was damaged during Cromwell's invasion of Ireland in the 17th century and was restored in the 19th century by the Guinness brewery family. Buried inside is Jonathan Swift, author and former dean of the cathedral. Today, St. Patrick's is the National Cathedral for the Church of Ireland (Anglican).

Your tour concludes with a relaxing drive to the pier. You may opt to stay in Dublin for independent sightseeing (morning departures only); however, you are responsible for your return transportation to the pier.
