Begin in Dublin, the capital of Ireland and the perfect starting point for an overview of the country’s long and storied history. During touring with your private guide and driver, marvel at the iconic Book of Kells and the Long Room in the Old Library at Trinity College, and tour St. Patrick’s Cathedral, one of the most important churches in Ireland. Take a culinary walking tour to sample treats at top local food markets and shops. Enjoy a private tour of the Old Jameson Distillery, followed by a private tasting of the distillery’s finest products. Walk in the footsteps of Irish literary giants such as James Joyce and Oscar Wilde in Georgian Dublin, a neighborhood of well-preserved architecture set around leafy St. Stephen’s Green. Depending on interests, stroll through the Temple Bar entertainment district, browse the upscale shops on Grafton Street, perhaps cross the River Liffey to walk along historic O’Connell Street, or stop by the Guinness Storehouse and opt for a pint in the on-site bar, which has views over the rooftops of Dublin. Additional touring options in Dublin include the National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology, Kilmainham Gaol and Chester Beatty Library. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange theater tickets and reservations at Dublin’s best restaurants for contemporary Irish cuisine.

One day, enjoy a private excursion to idyllic County Wicklow. Tour the stunning gardens at Powerscourt House and Gardens. Pass through verdant farmland and rolling hills to Glendalough, a beautiful glacial valley with the ruins of an ancient monastery set among lakes. Also tour historic Avoca Mill, where some of Ireland’s finest and most colorful textiles have been produced for centuries.

En route to County Laois and Ballyfin, opt to visit the Irish National Stud, where Thoroughbred horses are raised and trained, to see the facilities and tour the Japanese and St. Fiachra’s gardens.
