Dreamtrips: Dublin’s Historic Sites & Pints
15:00 - 12:00
About Your Trip
Discover Ireland’s history, culture and unforgettable scenery on this DreamTrip to the nation’s capital. Embark on a fascinating full-day tour and visit Trinity College, founded in 1592, to see the world-famous Book of Kells — the illustrated gospel said to harken from the 8th century. See St. Patrick’s Cathedral, built on the site where Saint Patrick baptized converts in the 5th century. Drive through Phoenix Park and view antiques and relics from Ireland’s storied history at the National Museum of Ireland. Many tour highlights abound in the cobbled streets of Dublin, so take the time to admire the colorful doors and Georgian architecture along the way. You may also see the Georgian Squares, Irish Houses of Parliament, National Gallery of Ireland and the General Post Office as you pass by.
The following day, visit the beloved Guinness® Storehouse for a self-guided tour through the 7-story “visitor experience” center. Learn the captivating history of one of the world’s most recognizable brands. Finish your tour with a complimentary pint and 360-degree views of the city from the 7th-floor Gravity Bar. (All ages are permitted on this tour; however, only guests ages 18 years and older are permitted to consume alcohol. See Additional Information for more details.)
