See the sights of Dublin from two very different angles. This trip starts with a boat ride along the River Liffey, which runs through the centre of Dublin. You’ll climb onboard for a journey past all the main landmarks, including the Ha’penny Bridge and the elegant Georgian Custom House. You’ll see the Royal and Grand canals, too, and you’ll sail past the spot where Oliver Cromwell launched his invasion of Ireland. Afterwards, you’ll swap boat for coach for a narrated drive around the city. You'll pass the National Archaeological Museum. This place is a treasure trove of ancient pieces, like the Ardagh Chalice – one of the best examples of eighth-century metalwork ever discovered, and the Tara Brooch – a Celtic piece of jewellery that dates back to around 700 AD. Prehistoric relics aside, the museum itself is pretty impressive – its entrance was modelled on Rome’s Pantheon. And keep an eye out for Trinity College, Ireland’s oldest university - past students include Oscar Wilde.
