DAY 1

Welcome to Dublin
You’re in for a grand time on this family jaunt through the ‘Emerald Isle’, which begins in Dublin.

No need to follow the rainbow for this morning’s chance encounter with Ireland’s lucky little people. Visit the home of the last remaining leprechauns with a Local Specialist and learn how your belief in their existence keeps them alive. Journey to County Down, arriving at the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa, one of Trafalgar’s Stays With Stories and your home for the night.

Dress in costumes from the program and try your hand at shooting medieval arrows using ancient bows. Snap a selfie or two, then head to Belfast, your home for the next two nights, where you’ll delve into the crossroads of British and Irish culture during an introductory sightseeing tour with a Local Specialist.

After a day of myths, legends and Hollywood blockbusters, consider tucking into an optional Fish and Chips pub dinner.
