4 night Dublin & Castle Escape  




Fall is an incredible time to visit Ireland. Prices drop and crowds are smaller. Our agents nearly always do Ireland travels in the fall.

So, here we go!  We have put together an itinerary for you. It’s a quick 4 night trip, featuring two of Ireland’s most luxurious properties: The Merrion in Dublin and Dromoland Castle near Shannon.

We have included pricing on here based on a self drive trip using entry level rooms or the Deluxe category. Of course, this could easily be customized by switching to a private guide, going with higher category rooms and adding nights to make it a longer trip.


Day 1: 

Arrive into Dublin Airport, and enjoy a private transfer to The Merrion, a luxurious 5-star located city center. You’ll be staying in their Garden Wing, in one of their lovely Superior rooms. You’ll have a 2-day hop on hop off bus pass to explore the city.

Discover Dublin. Using your hop on hop off pass, continue to explore the city. Highlights include Trinity College & the Book of Kells, Christchurch Cathedral, Dublin Castle, and Guinness Storehouse.

Day 3

This morning your rental car will be delivered to you. You’ll travel west to Dromoland Castle, a stunning 5-star castle on an impressive 400 acre estate.

Otherwise, spend the afternoon on the estate, where there are a number of activities available such as fishing and falconry.
