Dublin — 10 nights

A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Get out of town with these interesting Dublin side-trips: Malahide Castle (in Malahide), Powerscourt Gardens and House (in Enniskerry) and Dalkey Castle and Heritage Centre (in Dalkey). Spend the 7th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Croke Park Stadium Tour & GAA Museum, head outdoors with Celtic Rider, see the interesting displays at Irish Whiskey Museum, and stroll the grounds of Glasnevin Cemetery Museum.

Emerald Isle
Gentle green hills, Guinness, leprechauns, and friendly folks characterize this small isle of a country. From the busy big city of Dublin to cozy countryside, the emerald isle harbors a varied natural landscape and is steeped in tradition. Visitors can immerse themselves in the native Irish language by visiting a Gaeltacht, or Irish-speaking region of the country, where traditional culture thrives. The Irish are known for being open and welcoming: from the moment you land to the moment you leave, you'll be greeted with "cead mile failte"--a hundred thousand welcomes.
