Setting sail from Dublin

There is nothing like a visit to Ireland for a warm welcome, and in Dublin great literature, fascinating history and the friendly atmosphere make a stay here an unforgettable experience. The fair city of the song is a great place to meet the locals, enjoy the Georgian townhouses, explore the nooks and crannies of the castle, and of course to indulge in some serious retail therapy. And do seek out the Viking roots, medieval streets, city parks and beautiful bridges over the river Liffey - this is after all a great city to investigate on foot.

Don't miss

Temple Bar is where it’s at – dating back to Anglo-Saxon days, it’s a cobblestoned cultural enclave of galleries, restaurants, hopping pubs and the lively Meeting House Square.

Arriving in Edinburgh

Edinburgh - what a city! The capital city of Scotland has some striking and varied architecture, an imposing Castle, memorable museums and galleries and some wonderful restaurants. And what we love best about this buzzing city is that you can always look up, and there's the beautiful countryside - the Seven Hills - surrounding you. It's a city of inexhaustible delights; in one day alone you could see the Scottish Crown Jewels and Stone of Destiny, follow the Royal Mile to explore narrow closes steeped in history, and go to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Edinburgh Dungeon and the Scottish Parliament.

Our tip

If you will be visiting in August, the Festival is overwhelming – check out what’s on and book ahead. Don’t forget to include the Tattoo – a stirring evening indeed!

Ways to make it better
The Merrion, Dublin

Where to stay in Dublin

The Merrion – great location, an elegant setting (four restored Georgian townhouses) and a Michelin restaurant.

Newgrange, Bru Na Boinne

Around Dublin

Head out of the city to Brú na Bóinne - even older than the Pyramids, here are three Neolithic passage tombs.

The Witchery by the Castle, Edinburgh

Where to stay in Edinburgh

For sheer weird quirkiness, the Witchery by the Castle has to be our top choice: gothic and theatrical, this is Edinburgh at its best.

Forth Bridge, Scotland

What to see around Edinburgh

Cross the Forth Bridge to visit Hopetoun House, the seaside fortress Blackness Castle, the House of the Binns, the Palace of Linlithgow and Rosslyn Chapel.
