Day 1:

Dublin City Tour

Dublin Castle Step back in time and visit Dublin Castle, in the heart of historic Dublin. The Castle stands on the ridge on a strategic site at the junction of the River Liffey and its tributary the Poddle. In fact, the city gets its name from the Black Pool - 'Dubh Linn' which was on the site of the present Castle garden.

Trinity College Visit the impressive Trinity College, Ireland's first university, founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I. The college is also famed for its exhibit of the Book of Kells. During its early life, Trinity was a university exclusively for the Protestant ascendency class of Dublin.

Following the first steps of Catholic Emancipation, Roman Catholics were first admitted in 1793. In 1873, all religious tests were abolished.
