Welcome to Dublin! Upon arrival, you will be met and transferred to your hotel by your private chauffeur. This afternoon, your voyage of discovery begins with a tour of Ireland’s capital city. Visit stately St. Patrick’s Cathedral, founded in 1190, tour Dublin’s Georgian squares with their brightly colored doors, and walk the cobbled courtyards of Trinity College to its unique world treasure, the ornate 8th-century Book of Kells. The remainder of the day is free.

Travel to the Boyne Valley in County Meath. This river valley was the cradle of Irish civilization, and it supported a sophisticated society in Neolithic times. Witness this when you stop at the Bru-na-Boinne Centre to visit one of the Megalithic Passage Tombs at Newgrange or Knowth. These stunning structures predate both the Pyramids of Egypt and England’s Stonehenge. After your visit, return to the city, where the balance of the day is at leisure.

Heading out of Dublin, stop to visit Powerscourt Estate’s glorious formal gardens. Originally created in the 1740s, the superb blend of
sweeping terraces, fine statuary, ornamental lakes, rambling walks, and walled gardens are a magnificent sight to behold. Next, visit Glendalough, the “Valley of the Two Lakes,” famous for its early monastic ruins and scenic setting. Be sure to find St. Kevin’s cross. Legend
holds that those who can wrap their arms around it will receive their wish. Continue to the ancient town of Waterford with colorful terrace houses, cafés, and bars overlooking the quayside. Enjoy a night in the intimate Cliff House Hotel with dinner in their Michelin star restaurant.
