The vibrant city of Dublin has so much to offer its visitors, the warmest of welcomes and an array of unique attractions.
These include The Guinness Storehouse where you can sample the internationally renowned brew, the stunning St Patrick’s and Christchurch Cathedrals, The Book of Kells and Trinity College and the historic Dublin Castle. The magical River Liffey flows majestically through the city and traditional Irish music can be discovered at every turn! Not just home to traditional Irish music, the world premiere of Handel’s Messiah burst onto the stage of the Musick Hall in Dublin in 1742!
Beyond the lively city, there is much tranquility and beauty to be discovered. Heading south, the Wicklow Mountains National Park is one of Ireland’s most untouched regions. Observe the beautiful scenery and perhaps catch a glimpse of the native wildlife, before heading for the spectacular valley of Glendalough with its 6th century medieval monastic remains, one of the most picturesque corners of the whole country. The nearby picturesque town of Avoca, the filming location for ‘Ballykissangel’ is home to the Avoca Handweavers, the oldest working mill in Ireland and purveyor of beautiful goods. Experience how the powerful and mighty Anglo-Normans may have lived at one of Ireland’s most famous tourist attractions, Powerscourt House and Gardens. Wander the magnificent Italianate Gardens, abundant in exotic plants, trees and shrubs with a magnificent blend of sweeping terraces, ornamental lakes and secret hollows surrounded by the breathtaking views of nearby Sugarloaf, Wicklow’s most distinctive peak.
