May 24 Travel by train with me to the port of GALWAY, a charming Atlantic seaside university town with lovely shops and cafes. This wind-swept countryside has inspired writers and painters for centuries. You also have the option to take a tour that includes the CLIFFS OF MOHER with a short stop in Galway. Later we all return to Dublin.
May 25 We begin the day at Trinity College to view the Book of Kells, the illuminated copy of the Bible from the 9th century. This is the most magnificent piece of Dark Ages art remaining in the world. The craftsmanship and intricate designs are still impressive today. Through downtown Dublin we will stroll over to St Patrick’s Cathedral, along the Liffey River and across the famed and infamous Ha’Penny Bridge.
May 26 We take the train today out to the nearby seaside village of HOWTH to enjoy the upscale fishing village and perhaps some seafood chowder. You also have the option to take a tour to the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland.
May 27 Via train north to Belfast Northern Ireland today, birthplace of the Titanic. We visit the TITANIC EXHIBITION, newly opened, which is stupendous in its recreation of the great ship and of the disaster in 1912. We will visit the lovely Belfast City Hall, see the town’s memorials to the ship building industry and enjoy some English tea and scones. Later we return to Dublin by train.
May 28 North by train to another of the beautiful postcard perfect villages nearby, to DALKEY. We will have time to explore the history and culture of this village and shop for lace and other local specialties, before we return to Dublin. Tonight join me at a farewell Irish Dinner and Show for a grand send off for our final night.
