In Dublin, enjoy a VIP priority trip to Trinity College with university insider, Joseph. Learn what goes on behind the scenes in a fun and informative way. You’ll be fast tracked into the Book of Kells for a viewing of the exhibition in the Old Library.

2) Giant’s Causeway

Steeped in legend, Giant’s Causeway is rumored to be the handiwork of the mythical beings it was named after. These spectacular, towering hexagonal basalt columns make up Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the country’s most impressive sights.

3) Ashford Castle

The jewel in the crown of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection. The castle’s beauty and surroundings have attracted many notable figures over the years, including Hollywood greats John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara.
