Overnight Location

Dublin, County Dublin

On the Map: Dublin, Ireland's Capital City is located on the east coast of the country, and is well served by infrastructure linking it to all parts of the Emerald Isle.

Dublin is a lively cosmopolitan city brimming with culture. You could spend your time strolling the streets soaking up the atmosphere, relaxing in its cafes and bars or you could check out its myriad historical, literary and cultural delights. The 8th century illuminated manuscript, the Book of Kells, must be viewed. It is on display at the impressive Trinity College, Ireland's first university (founded 1592) in the heart of Dublin. For the rest of your time, it is up to you how much you want to pack in. Phoenix Park (twice the size of New York City's Central Park), Georgian Dublin around Stephen's Green, Dublin Castle, the National Botanical Gardens, National Museum, Kilmainham Gaol and the Hugh Lane Municipal Art Gallery are all highly recommended stops on your tour. Then there's the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery.  A visit to Dublin's Temple Bar to experience the lively Dublin pub culture is a must, though many of Dublin's best bars can be found outside this area in the streets and laneways around Grafton Street, the shopper's street of choice. Purchasing a 'hop-on, hop-off' Dublin Bus Tour ticket is a great way to get around and see all the major sites at a very reasonable cost.

Included Experiences

Food, Folklore & Fairies

Dublin, County Dublin

Discover how Irish people lived in times past while enjoying a traditional candlelit dinner in Dublin's oldest pub, The Brazen Head (est. 1198). The evening unfolds in an intimate setting above the pub. As you relax between courses, be taken back in time by renowned storytellers, to the fascinating world of Ireland long ago, when the culture was one of the mind, spirit and imagination. Discover how Irish people lived off the land and why the humble potato so influenced our history. Explore their beliefs and superstitions surrounding the otherworld of the fairies. Listen to the magical tales they told as they gathered around the fire at night, and enjoy live traditional Irish music and ballads while having dinner.


Must-See Sites

Newgrange, County Meath

On the Map: Newgrange is located just north of Dublin City in County Meath in the east of Ireland. Newgrange is reached via the N51 road, which intersects with the main M1 motorway (connecting Dublin & Belfast) near the town of Drogheda.

Newgrange, in County Meath, crouches on a rise just north of the River Boyne. It is the focal point for a ceremonial area and megalithic cemetery that is 5,000 years old.  The tombs' passage is perfectly aligned to mark the Winter Solstice. Newgrange is one of the best examples in Western Europe of the type of monument known as a passage-grave or passage-tomb. According to the most reliable Carbon 14 dating techniques, Newgrange was constructed around 3200BC. This means it is at least 600 years older than the Giza Pyramids in Egypt, and 1,000 years older than its British counterpart, Stonehenge. If you are interested in visiting Newgrange during summer months, we highly recommend planning to arrive very early in the morning to guarantee entrance to this extremely popular site!


Depart From

Depart from Dublin Airport, County Dublin

Return to Dublin Airport at least two hours prior to your flight's scheduled departure. This will allow ample time to check in for your flight home.

After check-in and passenger security, browse the array of shops on offer at 'The Loop' in Dublin Airport. With an extensive range of stores, bars and cafes, any spare time you have will fly!


“Great Trip”

Sep 21, 2017 by Tom L. Your Hometown: Connecticut

Jordan and the staff at Authentic Ireland listened to our needs and planned a fantastic trip for us . We did the self drive and had no problems what so ever including, all hotels, B&B, Car and pre Paid sightseeing. We did a southern loop including Dublin, Kilkenny, Cork county, Kalarney, the western coasts up to Galway and Connemara. venturing off the beaten path was the best of all. Get yourself lost on a country road and stop to talk to local farmers..They love it and provide great advice for a few secret spots! Thanks again Jordan. We will use and recommend you in the future!

“Ireland Adventure”

Sep 21, 2017 by Mariah. Your Hometown: Greensburg, IN

Edna assisted in planning a dream trip to Ireland for me and my friends, and I could not have been happier with the experience! From the beginning, Edna understood our desire to travel across Ireland on a small budget. She was quick to respond to my questions and willing to make last-minute adjustments when our plans changed. She reserved a rental car for us which was unbelievably easy to pick up and drop off and booked us at B&Bs with comfortable rooms, friendly hosts, and fabulous food. Ireland must be the most stunning place on earth, and I can't thank Edna and Authentic Ireland enough for sending me to this magical place.

I hope to begin planning a trip to Scotland soon and will certainly be using their services!

“A Great London & Scotland Visit”

Sep 21, 2017 by Joseph Galanti. Your Hometown: New Fairfield Ct USA

Another wonderful vacation made possible by Con Jager and Authentic Ireland! A trip full of history, beautiful places and friendly people is all anyone should hope for and that is what we found for two weeks. The hotels/B & B's/castles were great places to rest after busy days of tours, visits, and walking all over London and the English and Scottish countryside. Our guides and chauffeur were both teachers and pals for happy hours and days of busy but relaxed enjoyment. Thank you Con

“Wonderful Experience”

Sep 21, 2017 by Wendy. Your Hometown: U.S.A.

I had a wonderful experience with Authentic Ireland. This was the first international trip we've taken and Kati made it easy and very special. She worked with me to incorporate everything we wanted to see and do, took care of all the details, responded quickly, and answered all my questions. All we had to do was show up and have a great time. I highly recommend planning your next trip wherever it may be through Authentic Ireland. Thank you, Kati!

“Ireland 2017”

Sep 11, 2017 by Nicole. Your Hometown: Milwaukee, WI

The trip that Emma planned was absolutely amazing! The only thing I would've wished for was a place closer to the city center in Galway, but that's because I preferred parking and walking.
Having two full days in Dublin before picking up the rental car allowed plenty of time to go to the Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery, Trinity College, and shop along Grafton Street.

Each of the hotels and B&Bs were comfortable. Breakfasts were extremely filling. The suggestions for site seeing, both in the cities and along the route were great.

Communication with Emma was wonderful. Any questions that I thought of were answered quickly.

I would definitely recommend Authentic Ireland to anyone planning a trip, and would definitely use them again in the future.
