Essential Britain & Ireland with Paris

About Ireland

This comprehensive vacation introduces you to all five countries that make up the British Isles. Start with an overnight in London, then head west to prehistoric Stonehenge and then to the extraordinary Roman excavations in Bath. Next, spend a night in Newport, Wales, and travel via Cardiff to Pembroke for a ferry crossing to Ireland, where you will be welcomed with a typical Irish coffee, a Local Favorite on this vacation. Enjoy a guided visit of the House of Waterford Crystal, see Ireland’s oldest handweaving mill at Avoca, and take a guided tour of St. Kevin’s 6th-century Centre of Irish Christianity in Glendalough. In Dublin, an orientation drive features O’Connell Street, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Trinity College with its Book of Kells. Cross into Northern Ireland, pass the Mountains of Mourne, and stop in vibrant Belfast before boarding a ferry bound for Scotland. In the capital city of Edinburgh, guided sightseeing includes a visit to the castle to admire Scotland’s Crown Jewels. Return to England, where you’ll see a section of Hadrian’s Wall (dating back to the 2nd century) and stop in medieval York to marvel at gothic York Minster. At Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon take pictures of Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and visit the Bard’s birthplace, before returning to London. Here, board the high-speed Eurostar train and head to Paris, the “City of Light,” for three overnights, plenty of leisure time, and guided sightseeing that includes the highlights and a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral. All services, including Local Host assistance, are provided by Monograms.
