Day 1: DUBLIN TOUR & BOOK OF KELLS
Tour begins 2:00 PM, Dublin hotel. Set out on an introductory tour of central Dublin.

Day 2: 6TH CENTURY GLENDALOUGH & DUNBRODY FAMINE SHIP
Enjoy the delightful scenery of the Wicklow Mountains on the way to Glendalough, one of Ireland’s most beautiful destinations. Explore the remains of one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland, founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century. Walk through the deep valley to view the picturesque ruins of a round tower, churches and Celtic crosses. Continue to New Ross to the Dunbrody Famine Ship, a reconstructed 19th century vessel showing the harsh sailing conditions for emigrants on the way to North America.
