2018: 3 Nights Dublin, 2 Nights Belfast & 3 Nights London (DEB)
9 days from Dublin to London
According to an Irish proverb, 'He who travels has stories to tell.' Of course, there are bad stories-making travel arrangements was stressful, we got on the wrong train, we couldn't figure out where to go-and there are good stories-we traveled seamlessly and saw the amazing sights, we found restaurants perfect for our tastes, and we didn't have to handle any of the travel logistics. With Monograms, you'll arrive home from this 9-day vacation with enough good stories to write a book, because we've handled all of the travel details for you, leaving you time and energy to enjoy the sights! We've arranged your hotel accommodations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers to/from the train stations as well as transfers for your intra-vacation flight. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host, a local insider who will be on hand to help you create those good stories and find those perfect restaurants.Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Dublin. At your hotel, your Local Host will greet you with a warm Irish smile and a destination guide to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we'll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a Certified Local Guide, an insider who can tell you the city's inside stories and hidden secrets. We'll show you the must-see sights and bring you to the Book of Kells, a 9th-century gospel manuscript famous throughout the world. A full day in Dublin gives you time to explore on your own. Perhaps join a literary pub crawl through Dublin, sample a Guinness beer, browse the stores on Grafton Street, or take an excursion to Newgrange, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back over 5,000 years. Then you're off to Belfast in Northern Ireland. We'll transfer you to the Dublin train station, get you on the correct train (first-class), pick you up at the Belfast train station, and take you to your Belfast hotel. In Belfast, we've arranged for you to enjoy a hop-on/hop-off sightseeing tour at your own pace. We've also included entry to the Titanic Exhibition, where you will learn all about this ship and the tragic night of April 14, 1912. You've seen the movie-now it's time to learn about the real ship and its maiden voyage! Your vacation concludes in London. We'll take you to the Belfast airport for your flight to London, which we've included for you. In London, we'll pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel.
