Combine a stay in Dublin with a short side trip to the Aran Islands and Galway by train.

The Aran Islands are rich in the language, culture and heritage of Ireland, unique in geology and archaeology and in its long tradition of gentle hospitality. A timeless land in an endless sea; weathered monuments on awesome cliffs; great labyrinths of limestone; meandering walls; patchwork fields, quiet beaches and a welcoming island people. A place to sense the spirit of Gaelic Ireland, to touch the past, but with all the comforts and facilities of the present.

Aran will take you back to an Ireland of Celts and Early Christians!

Dublin
With over 1000 years of history Dublin has experienced many changes, particularly in the last decade. European Union membership and increased prosperity have transformed Dublin into a multicultural city with a thriving economy, ranking it among the top tourist destinations in Europe. An hour walk from the top of Grafton Street, across the Liffey, up O'Connell Street, and farther into north Dublin is a walk through time and, also a glimpse of some of the pieces that must eventually fit together.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Trinity College and the Book of Kells, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin Castle, the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery, Temple Bar, St. Stephen's Green and the National Museums and so much more!
