What we will do
  • We leave the port behind us on a coach as we start our sightseeing tour of Dublin, the capital of Ireland dating back to over 2000 years ago.
  • We venture into this amazing city, overlooking a bay surrounded by low mountains and quickly discover one of its characteristics: the large green areas scattered all over it. * One of them is Phoenix Park, a large park with lawns and boulevards covering hundreds of hectares north of the city. It is the largest fenced urban park in Europe.
  • We continue towards the centre and admire the Liffey river, which runs through the city and contributed to its commercial development. Only tourist boats sail along it today and it is crossed by many bridges from different areas and built in various architectural styles.
  • We drive along O’Connel Street, the main street in Dublin, and see a parade of monuments, sumptuous buildings and statues pass before our eyes, therefore immersing ourselves in Georgian Dublin with its architectural heritage among the best preserved in the British isles.
  • We cross Merrion Square, the beating heart of the city centre with manicured gardens and colourful flowerbeds overlooked by austere buildings with the famous vibrant-coloured doors with fan-shaped windows.
  • We continue towards Trinity College, the famous university among the oldest in Ireland where renowned literates such as Samuel Beckett and Oscar Wilde studied.
  • We then spot the majestic Dublin Castle, located on the south bank of the Liffey river with its imposing round tower, as well as the pointed outline of the Christ Church Cathedral, one of the city’s main monuments built over an ancient wooden Viking church.
  • Finally, we pay homage to St. Patrick's Cathedral, the largest church in Ireland erected where it is said that Ireland’s patron saint baptised pagans in 450 A.D.
