2 Nights Limerick, 3 Nights Killarney, 2 Nights Dublin & 3 Nights Belfast (DDB)

“Top o’ the mornin’ to ya.” The truth is, most Irish do not say this, but you’ll want to say it on this Monograms Ireland vacation. Why? Because we’ve made your trip to Ireland easy by handling the details for you, so you’ll likely be so happy you’ll want to greet everyone you pass—not just with “Top o’ the mornin’ to ya,” but with “Top o’ the day” and “Top o’ the night.” On this 10-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations, transportation between cities, sightseeing, and daily breakfast. Plus, you'll have a Local Host® in each city, someone who is there throughout your stays to ensure your vacation runs smoothly and you get the most out of your trip.

Your vacation begins when you arrive in Limerick, where we pick you up at the airport and transfer you to your Limerick hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and materials to help you get settled and familiar with the city. The next day, after included breakfast, you'll have the opportunity to take a hop-on/hop-off sightseeing tour to see attractions such as St. John's Cathedral and the Shannon Bridge. The following day, we will transfer you via a chauffeured car/minibus to Killarney, where we've arranged a jaunting car ride through the town and national park to Ross Castle. You'll enjoy splendid views of Ireland's highest mountain range and stop for photographs of the spectacular Lakes of Killarney. You'll also have a full day in Killarney to explore on your own. Perhaps visit Ross Castle, dating from the 15th century; visit Muckross House, a Victorian mansion built in 1843; or take an excursion to the Ring of Kerry for amazing scenery. Your Local Host will have plenty of suggestions.

Then, it’s off to Dublin via train. We will transfer you from your Killarney hotel to the train station, and we will pick you up at the Dublin train station and transfer you to your hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with materials to help familiarize you with Dublin. The next morning, after included breakfast, we will pick you up at your hotel for sightseeing with a local expert, someone who will share insider stories around such must-see attractions as St. Patrick's Cathedral. Your tour features the Old Library at Trinity College, where you will see the famous 1,200-year-old Book of Kells.

Finally, we will pick you up at your Dublin hotel and take you to the train station for your travel to Belfast. We will pick you up at the Belfast train station, take you to your hotel, and once again present you with materials so you can begin exploring immediately. In Belfast, we've arranged a hop-on/hop-off sightseeing tour for you. We've also included tickets to the Titanic Exhibition so you can learn all about the ship’s construction and the tragic night of April 14, 1912.

And did we mention the train travel we've provided is first-class? With the sightseeing and guides we've arranged, the hotels we’ve booked, and the transportation and transfers we've included, all you have to do is sit back and relax. We've handled all the other details, so you do not have the stress, headaches, and hassles of trying to figure out how to get from place to place and what to see once you are there. Be sure to grab your camera and get ready to say "Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!"

Dublin

Dublin

Chester Beatty Library

This award-winning library and art museum is housed in the 18th century Clock Tower building. It contains the personal collection of Sir Alfred Chester Beatty, a wealthy American miner who bequeathed it to the Irish public. It houses a collection of rare art and religious manuscripts from Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

Christchurch Cathedral

Formally known as The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, it is the elder of the capital city's two medieval cathedrals, the other being St. Patrick's Cathedral and it has a rare (for Ireland) crypt filled with interesting artifacts.

Dublinia

The Dublinia exhibition covers the formative period of Dublin's history from the arrival of the Anglo-Normans in 1170 to the closure of the monasteries in the 1540s. There are many exhibits here which include videos, models and reconstructions. The ground floor houses a large-scale model of Dublin around 1500, a display of artifacts from Wood Quay, and reconstructions.

Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane

The Hugh Lane Gallery houses exceptional 20th-century art by Irish and European painters, including Francis Bacon, whose studio was transferred from Reece Mews in London in 2001 and provides exciting insight into the artist's life, inspirations, unusual techniques and working methods.

Doheny and Nesbitt Pub

Dublin is filled with over a thousand pubs, most of them fairly noisy and boisterous. If you're looking for a pub where you can actually have a conversation, head to the intimate journalists' haunt of Doheny and Nesbitt on Baggot Street, which dates back to the late 1800s.

Grafton Street

Along this pedestrian street, you'll find some of Dublin's best shopping, street performers and musicians, not to mention the renowned Bewley's Oriental Café. Step in and indulge in freshly brewed coffee and delicious pastries.

IFC (Irish Film Centre)

Independent film buffs will enjoy the two art-house cinemas and comprehensive bookshop in the Temple Bar district. The café/bar/restaurant is worth visiting in its own right, if only to marvel at the award-winning architecture.

James Joyce Museum

Visit the James Joyce Tower, one of a series of Martello towers built to withstand an invasion by Napoleon, which now houses a museum devoted to the life and works of the great Irish writer. The tower was also the setting for the first chapter of his masterpiece, Ulysses.

Kilmainham Gaol

Built in 1792, Kilmainham Gaol is Ireland's most famous disused prison. It held throughout the years many famous Nationalists and Republicans in members of the Society of United Irishmen (1798), Young Irelanders (c1840s), Fenians and Land agitators, Parnell, Davitt. The leaders of the 1916 Ester Rising were executed here. Kilmainham Gaol was closed in 1924. This building gives a good insight into the history of Irish Republicanism.

Octagon Bar

This Dublin watering hole in the Clarence Hotel, owned by U2's Bono & The Edge, attracts a nice mix of locals, residents, tourists and the odd celebrity. Take in the relaxed atmosphere while enjoying one of their famous cocktails.

National Gallery of Ireland

The collection includes over 2,500 paintings and some 10,000 other works in different media including watercolors, drawings, prints and sculpture. The gallery's highlights are the Yeats Museum, and works by Vermeer, Caravaggio, Picasso, Van Gogh and Monet.

National Museum of Ireland

Walk into the National Museum of Ireland on Kildare Street and you are magically transported back in time; a short stroll will take you all the way back to 7,000BC. The new and fascinating Kingship & Sacrifice exhibition centers on a number of recently found bog bodies dating back to the Iron Age.

Merrion Square

Admire the city's largest square, framed on three sides by beautifully maintained Georgian houses. Oscar Wilde, whose statue reclines on a rock at the north-west corner of the park in the middle of the square, lived at No. 1, W.B. Yeats at No. 82 Merrion Square.

Afternoon Tea at The Lord Mayor's Lounge

Sink into a deep armchair at the Lord Mayor's Lounge at The Shelbourne Hotel, overlooking St. Stephen's Green, for an afternoon of tea and pastries. Even the teabags are special, they are sheathed in fine silk rather than paper or cotton.

St. Patrick's Cathedral

Built in honor of Ireland's patron saint, Saint Patrick's Cathedral stands adjacent to the famous well where tradition has it Saint Patrick baptized converts on his visit to Dublin. The cathedral is today the National Cathedral for the Church of Ireland (Anglican).

The Iveagh Gardens

The Iveagh Gardens is one of the finest and least known of Dublin's park and gardens. Located south of St. Stephen's Green, you will find a beautiful spot secluded from the city noise and bustle. The gardens feature a box hedge maze with sundial, rustic grotto and water cascade, archery grounds and woodlands.

St. Stephen's Green

Take a break in St. Stephen's Green, the inner-city public park, laid out in 1880 at the initiative of Sir Arthur Edward Guinness, a member of the Guinness brewing family. The Victorian park is a sanctuary from the bustle of the city streets with tree lined walks, shrubberies, colorful flowerbeds, herbaceous borders and an ornamental lake. In the summer months you can also enjoy lunchtime concerts.

Temple Bar Area

Immerse yourself in Dublin's cultural quarter! Along its narrow, cobbled streets between the Bank of Ireland and Christ Church Cathedral, you will find many Irish cultural institutions as well as outdoor cafés, hip restaurants, unusual shops and some of the city's best night spots.
