6-Night Ireland Vacation with Accommodations on Country Estate

During this 6-night vacation, you’ll have access to a rental car, so you can explore countryside surrounding Dublin at your own pace. Below, we’ve outlined some of our favorite spots in Ireland’s picturesque capital city, which inspired the works of James Joyce, Seamus Heaney, and several other authors. This vacation includes:

  • Round-trip Airfare from New York (JFK), Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), or Los Angeles (LAX)
  • 6 nights accommodations at the 5-star Powerscourt Estate
  • Manual-shift car rental for the duration of your trip
  • Upgrade your stay to a suite, with access to Glendalough, Cliffs of Moher, and Guiness storehouse tour, all for an extra $99 per person. See here for more information.
  • Extension package available, which includes a 2 night stay in Galway, allowing for a more in-depth exploration of the west coast of Ireland. Price is $200 per person. See here for additional information.

Powerscourt Estate

During your vacation in Ireland, you’ll have six nights of accommodations at the Powerscourt Estate, a 1,000-acre country estate about a 35-minute drive outside of downtown Dublin. The property—which dates back to the 13th century and was extensively redesigned and changed in the mid-18th century—features centuries-old gardens (voted 3rd-best in the world by National Geographic), Ireland’s highest waterfall at 121 feet, and a 5-star hotel. There are also two golf courses, including one that has hosted the Irish PGA Championship.

Highlights in Dublin

A postcard photo can’t do it justice—the firsthand view of Ireland’s rolling green hills is a sight to behold. In Dublin, this iconic landscape gives way to cobblestone boulevards and imposing Georgian mansions along the banks of the River Liffey, which flows right through the city center.

  • Dublin Castle has a rich history that dates back to the 13th century. It’s home to a Gothic cathedral and the remnants of an ancient Viking fortress.
  • Kilmainham Gaol is Europe’s largest unoccupied prison, and it’s as haunting as it sounds. Note: “gaol” is pronounced “jail.”
  • Tour the Guinness storehouse to sample the famous Irish stout inside an atrium modeled after the iconic Guinness pint glass.
  • Eat like a local: Dig into a bowl of coddle—a thick, hearty stew brimming with sausages and potatoes. Or, stop into one of the city’s 1,000 pubs to sample a pint of Irish ale.
