St Patricks Day in Dublin
Happy St Patricks Day! Head to the city of Dublin to enjoy the friendly atmosphere, go shopping or sightseeing and, of course, join in the St Patrick's Day celebrations. Don't forget to visit the Guinness Storehouse where you can learn how to pull a pint the Irish way, or take an extended tour to find out about the history of this famous city with landmarks such as Dublin Castle, St Stephen's Green, Trinity College and Ha'penny Bridge.
Spend today in the elegant town of Birr which has stayed true to its 18th and 19th century character with tree lined malls, avenues and wonderful Georgian architecture. Why not visit Birr Castle and explore the largest formal gardens in Ireland (not suitable for the less mobile) and home to Birr's world-famous engineering and astronomical wonder, the 150-year-old Great Telescope (entrance not included)
Visit the fortress and chateau, Kilkenny Castle, one of the most instantly recognised buildings in Ireland. Dominating the 'High Town' of Kilkenny city, the castle reflects Oliver Cromwell's re-conquest of Ireland in 1650 in which he destroyed one entire side of the castle. Discover the restoration from the significant art gallery within its basement to the extensive and delicately-clipped ornamental grounds. There will be time to explore the medieval town of Kilkenny afterwards, with its ancient winding streets and idyllic rural buildings dating back to the 13th century.
We depart early morning for our return ferry home.Br
