Enjoy a perfect introduction to Ireland’s capital. Stay in a first-class hotel and explore the city on an intimate tour in a luxury car, seeing St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the graves of some of the city’s most famous citizens. Another day, explore Northern Ireland, visiting Belfast and driving along the Giant’s Causeway.


This 4-day Irish vacation takes you to the Irish capital. It features first-class accommodations, small group tours, and is a great add-on to a longer journey through Ireland.

Your trip to Ireland showcases Dublin, which is one of the friendliest cities you’ll ever visit. In the past, Dublin was known as the loveliest city in Europe and while its Georgian architecture has aged over the years, the city hasn’t lost any of its charm. Staying in a first-class hotel in the city centre, you’ll spend your time exploring the city and nearby highlights. One day, join an intimate six-passenger tour of the city in a luxury Mercedes Viano. Explore St. Patrick’s Cathedral and see the resting places of Jonathan Swift and the Boyle Family. The next day, head on a tour of the North of Ireland. Drive along the Giant’s Causeway with its views over the sea towards Scotland and enjoy a whirlwind tour of Belfast, Northern Ireland’s capital. Spend the rest of your time seeing popular spots in Dublin like Trinity College Library, home to the beautiful Book of Keels, the Dublin Docklands, and the Guinness Storehouse, where you can learn about the history of the world’s most famous stout.

At the end of your stay, head to the airport to connect to your next destination.

Day 3

Belfast and Giants Causeway - Small Group

We depart Dublin and make our way towards Northern Ireland through the beautiful countryside. We'll stop for light refreshments en-route. After crossing the border we travel through the green Glens of Antrim, along this fantastic coastal drive with views of Rathlin Island and Scotland's shores in the distance. Your state-of-the-art Mercedes Benz tour vehicle holds no more than 16 passengers for maximum comfort.

Giant's Causeway is considered one of the natural wonders of the world, the Causeway is formed by more than 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns that were created by volcanic activity 60 million years ago. The Giant's Causeway is reputed to be the walkway used by Finn McCool, the legendary Irishman who fought Scottish giant Benandonner to steal the most beautiful girl in the highlands. This will also be our lunch stop where one can enjoy local cuisine in a good pub or café. Enjoy at least two hours and thirty minutes at leisure.

Next we head to Northern Ireland's capital of Belfast where you have two options to choose from. We are in Belfast for 2 hours. The cost is included in either scenario:
A) The legendary ocean liner RMS Titanic was built here in Belfast's docklands, once the leading shipyard in the world. Why not visit the Titanic Experience? Opened on the 100th anniversary of the ship's sinking, the exhibition brings to life how 40,000 workers built the famed vessel and the tragic sinking on her maiden voyage in 1912. You will have the opportunity to experience original artifacts and virtual reality exhibits.
B) Black Taxi Tour of Belfast's neighbourhoods with their infamous political murals and peace wall (security fence which separates British Unionist & Irish Nationalist housing estates). Your local taxi guide will be able to answer any questions you might have about what it was like to experience the conflict known as the Troubles (1969-1998).

We depart Belfast and make our way to Dublin after an awe-inspiring day.
