If you've ever wanted to visit Ireland this is your chance. You won't find a better value or a better time to go!! Especially in July when the weather in Ireland is at it's best... AND it's the 100 year anniversary of the Easter Rising so there will be lots of special events and celebrations going on.
Dublin is a city steeped in a rich history. Originally a Viking settlement and now the country's largest city and capital. Visit the famed Trinity College and gaze upon the 6th century Book of Kells written by a long forgotten Irish monk, visit St Patrick's Cathedral and Christ Church Cathedral and learn about their centuries long rivalry for dominance in Dublin. Stroll along the river Liffy and eat and drink your way through the Temple Bar area. The list goes on and on.
We'll stop at Trim Castle on our way from Dublin to Galway, built by Hugh de Lacey in 1173, it's the largest Norman castle in all of Europe and it sits on the south bank of the river Boyne where scenes from Braveheart were filmed. And, of course, no Porters' trip to Ireland would be complete without a stop at Tullamore Dew, that golden elixir of the Irish gods.
Galway on the western shore of Ireland is the land of music. We'll be staying in the heart of the pedestrian friendly zone where you can wander out in the morning, eat and drink in many of the fine local establishments, and stagger home at night!
We'll also be offering a couple optional trips to Newgrange and the Hill of Slane from Dublin, and the Aran Islands from Galway.
