Continue your day by visiting legendary Fore Abbey and exploring its grounds and artefacts. Relax over lunch in a local distillery. Meet the local owner who will take you on a tour of the distillery where you'll learn the secrets and fascinating and poignant stories of Irish whiskey creation. Explore the iconic town of Kells closely associated with the legendary book of Kells and St Columcille's first monastery. Look closely at the fine round tower and the cross. Or as an option enjoy a guided tour of a largest and best preserved Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland in Trim, also a setting for the famous Mel Gibson's Braveheart movie. Get back to Dublin in comfort of your private vehicle just in time for dinner.
