This highly-regarded tour covers all the must-see attractions, including Trinity College, St. Stephen’s Green, Christchurch, and the Guinness Storehouse. 

Coastal Gems

Given its stunning coastal location, Aberdeen Lodge serves as an ideal base for exploring Dublin’s coastline. Ann and Pat suggest dedicating two days of your five-day escape to these charming villages, utilising the included DART passes in your experience. Begin by taking the train north to Howth and Malahide. Here you can relish breath taking views while strolling along Howth Head and enjoying a meal at one of the village’s many seafood restaurants. Afterward, explore the village of Malahide with its marina and beach walks. Don’t forget to visit the historic Malahide Castle, a 12th-century gem set in a 260-acre estate.

On the second day of your coastal adventure, explore the south coast of Dublin. Make stops at the villages of Blackrock, which is renowned for the famous Blackrock Market, Dalkey, Killiney, and Dun Laoghaire, where a pier walk is a must. Enjoy a leisurely stroll in the picturesque village of Greystones and enjoy a coffee at one of the charming village cafes (we recommend Brew With A View). Additionally, the Greystones to Bray cliff walk is highly recommended, followed by a delightful dinner in Bray.

In addition to your five-day Discover Dublin experience, you’ll receive a two-day City Tour ticket. This allows you to explore the city at your own pace, along with a guided walking tour that delves into the city’s history and unique charm.

Your hosts at Aberdeen Lodge are thrilled to share their wealth of local knowledge to enhance your Dublin city break, providing recommendations to help you make the most of your two-day city tour tickets. After a day of sightseeing, they eagerly await your return to Aberdeen Lodge, where a warm welcome with tea and homemade cookies will be ready to accompany your stories of adventure.
