On arrival to Ireland each language group connected with their translators and continued to their luxury 5 star Dublin hotel for a smooth check-in. A mouth-watering welcome dinner at O’Connells of Donnybrook, with Tom O’Connell hosting the group ensured a traditional welcome to Ireland!
Days in Dublin were spent visiting iconic attractions such as St Patrick’s Cathedral, Trinity College and a fun and fabulous food trail around Dublin City. Customised, branded shopping maps allowed guests to shop til they dropped. A rousing morning at Ballyknocken with Irish dancing and scone making with celebrity chef, Catherine Fulvio was followed by a BBQ lunch at Glendalough House, once the home of the 4th President of Ireland, Erskine Childers.
No visit to Ireland is complete without a whiskey tasting and some Irish tunes at the Old Jameson Distillery. Some of the group even got to show off their Irish dancing moves again during a fun night with the Claddagh Players at the Distillery! Where better to party in the evening, than the Gravity Bar at Guinness Storehouse. With 360 degree views of Dublin City this stunning venue hosted dinner and dancing! The awards evening in Dublin took place in the magnificent Luttrellstown Castle with the stunning Keynotes as entertainment. A sumptuous dinner and special evening was enjoyed by all.
A VIP shopping experience in Kildare Village provided the perfect rest stop en route to the magical property of Adare Manor. Meanwhile luggage was transferred seperately and awaited guests in their rooms on arrival to Adare Manor. Restaurant 1826 and Wild Geese, both situated in thatched cottages in Adare Village provided wonderful local dining experiences and of course the Minstrels Gallery at Adare Manor was the perfect finale to the trip.
