Welcome to Dublin, Ireland's capital city, steeped in history and youthful energy. Medieval, Georgian and modern architecture provide a backdrop to a friendly bustling city, where the cosmopolitan and charming converge in the delightful diversity that is Dublin.
On a panoramic drive through Dublin, you will see the Old Parliament House, which is now the Bank of Ireland. Continue past Trinity College, founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I, and the Georgian squares of Merrion and Fitzwilliam. Watch for sprawling St Stephen's Green, Dublin Castle, City Hall, Christ Church Cathedral, and Guinness -- home of the world's most famous brew.
The Teeling Distillery is located in the heart of the city and is the first new whiskey distillery to open in Dublin in more than 125 years. Here, you will enjoy a fun and informative guided tour and tasting.
Immerse yourself in more than 300 years of whiskey history -- the rise and fall and rise (again) of the Dublin whiskey industry makes for a fascinating story. You'll take a guided tour of the operational distillery, learning about all five crucial steps in the whiskey-distilling process. Wouldn't it seem rude to leave without tasting the product? Of course it would! You're invited to sample four whiskeys, including the Distillery Exclusive whiskey, not available anywhere else. The new single-pot still whiskey is one of the few whiskeys actually made in Dublin in more than 40 years.
From the coach, you'll appreciate Phoenix Park -- Europe's largest enclosed public park and home to Ireland's President and the American Ambassador.
On the north side of Dublin's River Liffey, you will pass the Four Courts -- Ireland's courts of justice. And follow the wide boulevard of O'Connell Street past the General Post Office. The latter was the scene of the 1916 rising, so it is considered the birthplace of the Irish nation.
