Package Description:

There are many ways to see Ireland but to experience it in style is the best way to go! You'll begin your trip arriving into Dublin, and from there, you'll make the short drive in lovely Co. Meath, just to the northwest of Dublin, where you will spend the first night of your trip in the luxury of the 4-star Dunboyne Castle Hotel. While there, you might choose to relax at the SEOID Spa, reveling in the tranquility of the hydrotherapy pool after a soothing massage - or round out your evening with dinner in one of the three magnificent restaurants on the property.

The next morning, you'll continue your jaunt north to Donegal, visiting sites along the way. The only 5-star Castle in Donegal, Lough Eske can trace its roots back royal families. It sits within 40 acres of ancient forests and lush green pastures. Here you will be pampered like royalty as you enjoy the various amenities on offer.

Once you have absorbed the history and natural beauty of Donegal, you will head south along the west coast of Ireland to the beautiful city of Galway where you will stay at the 5-star Glenlo Abbey Hotel. Known as Ireland’s Cultural Heart, Galway is renowned for its various festivals, celebrations and events. In your 2 days in Galway you can soak up the artistic side of Ireland that gave to the world musical performers like The Saw Doctors and Siobhan McCormack. Or if history is more your speed visit the Church of Ireland St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church, located in the heart of the city and the largest medieval church still in everyday use in Ireland.

Finally, you will make your way back across the heart of the country to spend one final night in Dublin at Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel. Be sure to sample the vibrant nightlife of Dublin before returning to your 4-star home away from home for one final night’s sleep before your return flights.
