Dublin — 6 nights

A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Guinness Storehouse and Kilkenny Castle. Kilmainham Gaol Museum and Saint Patrick's Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Dublin side-trips: Black Abbey (in Kilkenny), Malahide Castle (in Malahide) and Castlecomer Discovery Park (in Castlecomer). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Temple Bar, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Jameson Distillery Bow St., walk around St Stephens Green, and stroll the grounds of Glasnevin Cemetery Museum.
