Your Destinations

Dublin

Take a stroll through Dublin’s elegant Georgian streets and squares, making your way to Trinity College at the heart of the city. Visit the beautiful Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript of the four Christian gospels dating to the 9th century, and one of the country’s finest national treasures. From there you can wander up Grafton Street for the best that the city has to offer in shopping, exploring the wonderful side streets that are full of cosmopolitan coffee shops, restaurants and boutiques.

 

Enjoy lunch in one of the many fantastic restaurants. Afterwards, explore the troubled story of Ireland’s struggle for freedom and independence by visiting the atmospheric and moving Kilmainham Gaol. If you prefer something at a gentler pace, stroll through the grounds of the nearby Royal Hospital Kilmainham which is home to the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA).

Galway

In the heart of western Ireland, Galway is the halfway point and the only city along the entire 2500 km route known as the Wild Atlantic Way. Arty and bohemian, the city is best loved for its offbeat cafe-bar culture, where the sound of live music follows around every street corner. Remnants of the medieval town walls lie between trendy boutiques, and a long promenade gives way to sandy beaches.
