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. Exploring Dublin is a combination of using a local guide to introduce you to the cultural gems of the city, and wandering on your own to get lost, discover the ambiance, and enjoy interacting with the Dubliners.
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. As we say, exploring Dublin is a combination of using a local guide to introduce you to the cultural gems of the city, and wandering on your own to get lost, discover the ambiance, and enjoy interacting with the Dubliners. So this afternoon you'll start by using the local Hop On-Hop Off bus system to work your way around to a few of the more important areas. You have a 48 hour pass, so feel free to use it to visit all of Dublin. One of your stops 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 day hopping around Dublin, you can end up back at your 4* hotel to relax and recharge. 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. You’ll visit iconic Dublin sites such as Trinity College, the Book of Kells, St. Patricks Cathedral and Dublin Castle. The rest of your day is at your leisure. You can again use the Hop On-Hop Off bus to visit more of the city.
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.
