With a vast array of tourist attractions available to you, your time will be filled to the brim. Visit the Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery, Dublin Castle, St Stephen's Green, Grafton Street shops and the bustling Temple Bar area. Historical pubs and live music on every corner ensure you a warm Irish welcome that sees visitors return time and again.

Days 3 & 4

County wexford

Drive south for two hours to spend the next two nights at Wilton Castle, set amongst wooded-parkland in stunning County Wexford, surrounded by the peace and isolation of the Irish countryside.

Visit the town of Wexford, just 30 minutes' drive away, stop off at Tintern Abbey and Colclough Walled Gardens, just 40 minutes' south, and the hidden gem of Baginbun Beach for a secluded seashore walk. 

Or simply relax in one of Wilton's beautifully appointed apartments and enjoy the warm Irish hospitality of this lovingly restored family-run castle.
