Travelers could spend their whole time in Dublin wandering around 18th century Georgian houses with brightly-painted doors, strolling through tranquil parks, viewing all the statues lining O’Connell Street and taking in all the new buildings around the Financial Centre beside the River Liffey and still take in the culture and beauty of the city.

We arrived two days early so that we could have more walking-around time in Dublin’s city center. We were able to visit the National Gallery of Ireland, spent an evening in the Temple Bar area, had dinner at The Farm (a farm-to-table restaurant), and enjoyed High Tea at The Shelbourne.

Iconic Ireland is just absolutely amazing! From the numerous shades of green, to the Wild Atlantic Way, there is something that is sure to mesmerize you! I have to say, the people of Ireland are most welcoming, filled with pride for their country, and are so willing to tell you many tales of Ireland’s history.
The pubs are alive with much laughter, great pub fare and glasses full of Guinness! You will see countless castles on this journey. Some are in pristine condition and some are ruins left from centuries long past. If you have not had the opportunity to get to Ireland, I would definitely write that on your “Bucket List” and let Brendan Vacations show you the breath taking views of this Celtic Country!

When I retired from teaching 14 ½ years ago, I went to Ireland with a group of friends. We rented a house outside of Galway for 2 weeks. I said then, that I hoped to return to Ireland someday, which I finally did this summer.
I took the trip called the Best of Ireland with Trafalgar. This trip is quite different from my first one because it was organized and fully escorted. You see more and learn more about the country on a fully escorted trip.
