Personal Driver Ireland | Baile Átha Cliath – Dublin
Dublin is now a renowned cosmopolitan city in Europe and a popular tourist destination worldwide. Most importantly it’s the capital of our beloved Ireland! What sets Dublin aside from other European cities is that although it’s a very modern, diverse and bustling city, it’s also steeped in history and culture. It has managed to still maintain it’s Irish heritage. All Irish tours with Executive Tours Ireland can include a trip to Dublin with your very own private Irish chauffeur!
For a deluxe tour of Ireland, visit a castle! Over 800 years Dublin Castle has stood in the heart of Dublin and was originally built on a Viking site. It was used as a military fortress and the inauguration of the very first president of Ireland took place here (so did every one that followed). It is also used for State receptions and can be closed for Government business. Very little of the original medieval building remains above ground as most was destroyed in a fire in 1673. However, it is a magnificent building to visit and it’s surrounding Dubh Linn Gardens.
The Long Room Library in Trinity College houses 4.25 million books and as a legal deposit library it’s entitled to hold every publication of every book in Britain and Ireland. This impressive and lavish library must be a treat for all the scholars and academics who are fortunate enough to study there. Discover Ireland and it’s ancient history. The library is also home to the infamous Book of Kells.
It’s all in the name! The Guinness Storehouse, the home of Guinness, the beverage the Irish are known for. In 1759 Arthur Guinness famously signed the 9,000 year lease for the storehouse. On the customised tour of Ireland you get to learn the history of Guinness and how to pour the perfect pint, there’s definitely a skill to pouring a guinness!!
Your private chauffeur in Ireland will escort you to Kilmainham Gaol (Jail). First built in 1796, it one of the largest unoccupied jails in Europe. Public hangings used to take place in front of the prison but there were very few hangings from the 1820’s onward. However, many of the leaders of the 1916 Easter rising were executed in Kilmainham Gaol. Seen at the time as a place of suffering and oppression it’s no surprise that the jail was shut down as a functioning prison by the Irish Free State in 1924. The restoration of Kilmainhan Gaol was completed in 1971 and opened to the public.
St Patrick’s Cathedral founded in 1191, is the largest church in Ireland and named after St Patrick, who baptised Christians nearby over 1500 years ago. It’s the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland and major refurbishment took place in 1870’s as it was feared the building was nearly collapsing. Your driver guided tour of Ireland will bring you to all this important places in Dublin.
