    Dublin is one of Europe’s most vibrant cities. Over a thousand years old, the turbulent history and rich traditions of the city have inspired writers, artists and musicians down the ages. Today, artists are still attracted by Dublin’s youthful enthusiasms and easy-going lifestyle and the city has become a thriving center of culture and enjoyment. The new wave of cafes and restaurants are meeting places for all ages while traditional Dublin pubs are rightly world-famous for their informal atmosphere and lively conversation. The city oozes atmosphere, not least in the heady scents that cling to it – the rich aroma of the hops being roasted in the Guinness brewery and the salty tang of the sea. Nighttime entertainment is a rich mix of world-class theater, concerts from classical to rock, jazz clubs, traditional music sessions and old-style cabaret.

    Above all, Dublin is a small city, where visitors can feel at home after even the shortest stay.

    Cork City is one of Ireland’s most friendly and welcoming cities. The shopping and commercial capital of the south, it still manages to retain the pleasant charm and friendliness of a country town. Like the rest of the Cork area, food and restaurants are an important feature of the city. Visitors can choose from its many restaurants and cafés or browse in the famous English Market where Irish food, and even some Cork delicacies, can be seen in all their glory.

    The English Market. Cork’s iconic English market has been trading since 1788. One of the oldest and certainly the best covered market in Europe, it has survived famine, flood, war, fires, and multiple recessions to remain a strong part of Cork’s retail environment. Renowned as a food market, it is an important part of food culture in Cork, with an emphasis on fresh, local produce with traditional Cork foods as well as an array of international delights. The stallholders are local and independent food producers or retailers, often with generations of families working in the Market. The traditional serve-over-counter stall trading also ensures that the service to the customer is personal and unique.

    The reputation and history of the market has attracted thousands visitors each year – heads of state, celebrities and tourists from across the globe have come to see the market.

    Nano Nagle Place is an unexpected oasis in the centre of bustling Cork City, a place that celebrates Nano Nagle’s vision of empowerment through education, community inclusion and spiritual engagement for a contemporary world. The complex houses an award-winning museum, regenerated heritage buildings, walled gardens, a design shop & Cork focussed book shop and the wonderful Good Day Deli. The beautifully restored convent buildings are home to several community education projects.

    The Crawford Art Gallery is a public art gallery and museum in the city of Cork, Ireland. Known informally as the Crawford, it was designated a ‘National Cultural Institution’ in 2006. It is “dedicated to the visual arts, both historic and contemporary”, and welcomed 265,438 visitors in 2019.

    Hayfield Manor, Cork’s premier 5 star hotel, provides all the charm of a grand manor house, uniquely posed within two-acres of beautiful walled gardens in Cork’s historic university quarter, and just a pleasant stroll to the heart of Cork city. Residents of Hayfield Manor experience exceptional hospitality from staff attuned to providing memorable personal service.

    experience beyond the best.

    Day 4 - Cork

    Few towns have quite so much to do as Cobh. The stunning island town in Cork Harbor is steeped in history, brimming with activities, and picture-perfect from every angle. From historical experiences to adventurous escapades, leisurely trails to high-octane activities, you’re guaranteed to make unforgettable memories.

    Visit the Cobh Heritage Centre which tells the Queenstown Story. The “Queenstown Story” is the story of Irish Emigration. Follow the story from the 1600’s when transportation to the British overseas colonies was commonplace, from Virginia and New England to Barbados, Jamaica and Monserrat.

    This beautiful, informative and sometimes emotive Exhibition is situated within Cobh’s beautifully restored Victorian railway station, a building with its own historic story.

    Jameson Experience; Old Midleton Distillery. Set on 15 acres and beautifully restored, this is where the true heart of Irish whiskey beats. The old distillery is a unique experience with some of the buildings dating back to 1795. Take a journey through history and see the old kilns, mills and malting, water wheel and old warehouses. A short film sets the scene before their tour guide walks you through the old distillery. The guided tours last one hour and end with a complimentary glass of Jameson Whiskey and a chance to take part in a tutored whiskey tasting to become a certified Irish Whiskey Taster!

    Day 5 - Cork

    Blarney Castle & Gardens
    Meet your private driver/guide in the lobby of your hotel and begin your touring day.

    Built nearly six hundred years ago, this historic landmark is been one of Ireland’s top tourist attractions. Here, you can walk the stunning gardens, walk through the restored castle, and make sure to kiss the Blarney Stone.

    Kinsale, Co. Cork. Located at the start of the Wild Atlantic Way, Kinsale town is famous for its colorful streetscapes and rich history, fueled by great people, food, boutiques & events. Kinsale is a vibrant coastal town with an energetic personality that will keep you entertained all year round!

    Charles Fort. As one of the country’s largest military installations, Charles Fort has been part of some of the most momentous events of Irish history.

    Charles Fort is a massive star-shaped structure of the late seventeenth century, well preserved despite its history. William Robinson, architect of the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham, Dublin, is credited with designing it. Its dimensions are awe-inspiring – some of the outer defences are 16 metres high.

    The view from the ramparts looking out over Kinsale Harbour is spectacular. Visit this unique star-shaped military fortress that has stood guard over Kinsale harbour for over three hundred years!

    Day 6 - Dublin

    Dublin City. Dublin’s attractions are as diverse as they are plentiful: from the 11th-century Christ Church Cathedral to the Leprechaun Museum to the Guinness Storehouse, this city has a wide selection of things to do and see. The plethora of literary pubs has earned its status as one of just five UNESCO Cities of Literature on the planet. You can raise a pint to writers like James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, and Bram Stoker or explore the life and works of poet W.B. Yeats at the National Library.

    Dublin is a great city to explore on foot. From the gracious city parks of Merrion Square and Iveagh Gardens to the grand Georgian architecture and alfresco café culture of South William and Drury Streets, there’s a lot to divert your attention. And don’t forget Temple Bar–a cobblestoned cultural enclave of galleries, restaurants, hopping pubs, and the lively Meeting House Square.

    Fitzwilliam Hotel Dublin
    Check-in to the luxury 5 star Fitzwilliam Hotel, a residence that oozes charm with the warmest welcome, always. A boutique luxury escape in the very heart of everything, it’s the most recommended, best reviewed, most loved, multi awardwinning five-star hotel with the best location in Dublin.
