On this extended tour you will visit the medieval Church of St. Audoen and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which is a treasure trove of Irish culture and heritage. Skip-the-line tickets to St. Patrick’s Cathedral are included so you can spend more time admiring this beautiful Gothic church instead of waiting in line. You can also get a taste of Irish nightlife in Temple Bar, the most talked about neighborhood in Dublin. The route will also cover the highlights of Dublin Docklands, such as the O’Connell Bridge, Famine Memorial, and the legendary ship Jeanie Johnston. Book a 7-hour car tour to enhance your experience with a visit to the Old Library Exhibition at Trinity College and see the real Book of Kells!
