The Emerald Isle seems to be on everybody’s bucket list these days, and with plenty of good reason. Dramatic coastline, historical landmarks, toe-tapping good music, and that wonderful quirky Irish personality all make Ireland a great place to be. Whether you’re interested in the busy capital of Dublin or the quainter and quieter countryside around the Dingle Peninsula, an Ireland sightseeing tour with an experienced and friendly guide is sure to be the experience of a lifetime.
On your guided Ireland sightseeing tour, Dublin cannot be missed. Much of Ireland’s complicated history is encapsulated here, and a trusty guide can help you make some sort of sense in The Troubles. In Phoenix Park, you’ll see the second highest obelisk in the world. You can stop by some of the city’s most beautiful stone bridges, and explore the War Memorial Gardens. You’ll love the gothic Western Gateway, and the story of how it was built stone by stone. On the grounds of the Royal Hospital, you’ll see Bully’s Acre graveyard, while learning about its secret Queen Victoria legacy.
And then, of course, there are all the other important landmarks, like the Guinness Storehouse and Brewery! Climb your way to the top for a perfect 360-degree view of the city, all while washing the experience down with a tall pint of Guinness. There’s also plenty of time to peruse the pubs and bars at Temple Bar, as well as for a sobering visit to the Kilmainham Gaol, where many rebels from The Troubles were housed and executed.Read More ...
