Full description
Depart Belfast at 8:00 AM for a full day of sightseeing. Your first stop of the day will be at Saul Church. This is the oldest Church in Ireland and is over 1586 years old. St Patrick himself actually took his last breath in the church before being buried at his final resting place a few miles away.

Next you will stop at the St. Patrick’s Center. Explore the legacy of St. Patrick and learn about the most famous saint in the world. Recall the saint’s own story in his own words. Interactive displays allow you to explore how Patrick's legacy developed in early Christian times. Take the opportunity to visit the legendary burial place of St. Patrick at Down Cathedral behind the Cultural Center.

Move on to the historic ruins of Monasterboice, an early Christian settlement and important religious center. Discover an old graveyard, two churches, and Monasterboice's spectacular high crosses. The crosses stand in the shadow of a magnificent round tower, about 35 meters high, divided into four or more stories inside, connected with ladders.

Finally, visit Dublin and enjoy a city tour for roughly an hour, listening to the interesting facts. Drive past the most famous tourist attractions like the Guinness Storehouse, Trinity College, Dublin Castle, the River Liffey and many more.

Have between 2 and 3 hours of free time to explore Dublin before heading back to Belfast, arriving around 8:00 PM.
