Situated on the edge of the River Liffey, Dublin is a marvelous city that combines elements of its historic and rebellious past with all the stylish adornments of a modern European capital. Although Dublin is one of Europe’s oldest cities, it has managed to retain its historical and cultural charms even while offering trendy bars, elegant restaurants and stylish, cosmopolitan shops and hotels.
With a wealth of attractions, many within walking distance of each other, Ireland’s largest city provides a sense of history, culture, music and an urban bustle that is truly unique. As you explore its neighborhoods and monuments, you’ll begin to get a feel for how its turbulent colonial past transformed into the affluent urban city it has become.
You can position your Dublin Adventure before or after your Go Get Lost Ireland tour. We can advise you how to join your tour after Dublin, (or get to Dublin after your tour), or we can also arrange a private transfer for you or your group.

Day 1 - The Guinness Storehouse
(Depending on whether your Dublin Adventure is before or after your Go Get Lost tour, the order of events may vary.) Arriving in Dublin this morning (either by airplane or from your tour) you'll check into your 4 Star hotel and relax a bit. Then around mid-day your local guide will collect you to begin your adventure. Your first stop will be in the very heart of Dublin to visit the famed Guinness Storehouse, in the legendary St. James Gate Brewery, home of Guinness since 1759. In days gone by it was a fermentation plant, but today it’s been transformed into Ireland’s number one international visitor attraction. Here you’ll enjoy a guided tour of the Storehouse and a Perfect Pint Tuition!
While at Guinness, be sure to experience Gravity Bar, located at the top of the building, designed to reflect the head of a pint of GUINNESS, as the center of the building contains a void in the shape of a giant pint glass. Gravity Bar boasts stunning, breath-taking views over the Dublin City skyline.
After your visit to Guinness you’ll be transported to your 4* hotel to relax and recharge for the evening. Tonight you’ll have the evening free to get lost and find a wonderful restaurant for dinner.
Day 1 - Dublin Walking Tour
After your hearty Irish breakfast this morning, a local guide will meet you at your hotel for a half-day private tour. With a mixture of walking and driving, you’ll visit iconic Dublin sites such as Trinity College and Dublin Castle, as well as visiting some of the hidden gems of the City. Dublin is a UNESCO City of Literature and has strong associations with Ireland’s best known literary figures including James Joyce Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde, Maeve Binchy, Roddy Doyle and many more.
One of the highlights of the day will be your visit to the Chester Beatty Library.
Don’t let the word “library” make you think this will be anything less than fascinating. Situated within the grounds of Dublin Castle, the Chester Beatty Library has been described as not just the best museum in Ireland, but one of the best in Europe! As the only museum in Ireland to win “European Museum of the Year”, the library's rich collections from countries across Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Europe open a window on the artistic treasures of the great cultures and religions of the world. Egyptian papyrus texts, beautifully illuminated copies of the Qur'an and the Bible, along with European medieval and renaissance manuscripts are among the highlights on display. In its diversity, the collection captures much of the richness of human creative expression from about 2700 BC to the present day.
Spend the rest of the day at leisure.
Day 3 - Farewell
Check out and Departure. If you're flying out today it's a simple matter to arrange a taxi to the airport. If you're joining a Go Get Lost tour then we can advise you on the easiest way to join the tour, or we can arrange a private transfer for you.
The Morrison Hotel (4 Stars)
The Morrison Hotel is located in the heart of Dublin city, on the banks of the River Liffey, and only 40 steps across the Millennium Bridge from the lively quarter of Temple Bar. This 4 Star Superior hotel is renowned for its style, ambience and discerning atmosphere, and its recent refurbishment has only strengthened its position as a hip and vibrant premier destination for both local and international visitors.
The recent refurbishment has seen a complete redesign and stylistic overhaul of both the lobby area and all 138 bedrooms in the hotel, courtesy of leading Irish architect Nikki O’Donnell. This has been achieved while staying true to the legacy of supporting new Irish design talent in everything from art to textiles and sculpture, but without compromising on the comfort and style which guests have come to expect. The musical theme can be found in certain bedrooms throughout the hotel, in the presence of famous Irish song lyrics.
