The Destination
No matter where in Dublin you find yourself, an endless supply of restaurants and (occasionally raucous) pubs will welcome you with laughter and plenty of beer. The city of Joyce, Yeats, and Beckett can be at turns profound and giddy as it pulses with the distinctive personality of the Irish. The city centre hugs the River Liffey, Dublin's main artery, and is crisscrossed by narrow streets lined with centuries-old houses and sleek, modern edifices. Travel beyond the boundaries of the city to explore even more of the Emerald Isle, from the tranquil countryside of Roscommon to culturally rich Galway to Meath, home to historical treasures.

No need for that four-leaf clover, because you're already in luck with this eight-day trip, courtesy of Great Value Vacations.

The Itinerary
day 1: Board your overnight flight from Boston, New York City, or Chicago to Dublin Airport.

day 2: Touch down at Dublin Airport, where you'll pick up your rental car and head to your resplendent accommodations at an 18th-century castle overlooking Dublin Bay.
Overnight at Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel in Dublin.

days 3 and 4: Head west to County Roscommon, a hidden gem in Connaught favored for its idyllic landscapes brimming with lakes, rivers, and woods. Your tranquil time here is your own to stroll the sleepy streets or spot wildlife at Lough Key Forest Park, a picturesque space that's not to be missed.
Two nights at Kilronan Castle in Roscommon.

days 5 and 6: After an hour and a half's drive southwest, find yourself a world away in Galway City, one of the most populous places in Ireland—with a cornucopia of dining, shopping, and nightlife options to match. A slew of festivals and events throughout the year lends Galway its moniker, "Ireland's Cultural Heart."
Two nights at Glenlo Abbey Hotel in Galway.

day 7: Make your way to Meath, about a two-hour jaunt east. You can see why it's named for an ancient kingdom: Archaic structures, religious ruins, and Brú na Bóinne—a 5,000-year-old archaeological complex and UNESCO World Heritage Site teeming with monuments and megalithic art—offer plenty of glimpses into the past.
Overnight at Dunboyne Castle Hotel in Meath.

day 8: Return your rental car at Dublin Airport, where you'll board your flight home.
