According to an Irish proverb, “He who travels has stories to tell.” Of course, there are bad stories—making travel arrangements was stressful, we got on the wrong train, we couldn’t figure out where to go—and there are good stories—we traveled seamlessly and saw the amazing sights, we found restaurants perfect for our tastes, and we didn’t have to handle any of the travel logistics. With Monograms, you’ll arrive home from this 9-day holiday with enough good stories to write a book, because we’ve handled all of the travel details for you, leaving you time and energy to enjoy the sights!

Day by Day
Cead mile failte - a hundred thousand welcomes! Your Local Host will help you maximise your time in the "Fair City."
Morning guided sightseeing takes you past St. Patrick's Cathedral, the largest church in Ireland, along elegant Georgian squares, and statue-lined O'Connell Street. Look out for the effigy of Oscar Wilde, reclining on a huge granite stone and seemingly without a care in the world; or Molly Malone, commemorating the young woman featured in the local ballad Cockles and Mussels. Finally, visit the Old Library at TRINITY COLLEGE, and see the famous 1,200-year-old Book of Kells. It is testimony to Dublin's literary tradition, dating back over a thousand years, when monks would transcribe the Bible into beautiful manuscripts.
NOTE: Dublin sightseeing might take place on Day 1.
Discover all that Dublin has to offer on your own or try some of the suggestions from your Local Host, such as the Chester Beatty Library, housed in the 18th-century Clock Tower building. This award-winning museum contains the personal collection of Sir Alfred Chester Beatty, a wealthy American miner who bequeathed it to the Irish public.
DUBLIN-BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND.
Journey to Belfast by TRAIN (First class).
Enjoy your HOP-ON/HOP-OFF SIGHTSEEING TOUR, which will take you past all the city's attractions, including City Hall, the Albert Memorial Clock Tower, Queens University, the murals on Falls Road and Shankill Road, and the Parliament Buildings at Stormont. Also included is a ticket to the fascinating TITANIC EXPERIENCE, where you learn all about the building of the largest passenger steam ship, its maiden voyage, and the tragic night of April 14, 1912.
NOTE: The Hop-On/Hop-Off ticket in Belfast is valid for 48 hours and can be activated on the day of arrival.
A day at leisure in Belfast and your Local Host will help you plan it. For example, you could visit the Belfast Botanical Gardens with its Palm House made of curved iron and glass.
Travel to London by AIR on selected flights.
Morning guided sightseeing includes all of London's famous landmarks. Drive past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben; Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married; Whitehall's mounted horseguards; the Prime Minister's Downing Street; and Piccadilly Circus. Take photographs of the London Eye, the giant Ferris wheel situated on the riverbank, and the Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe. Visit ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL. Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece with its world-famous dome is an iconic feature of London's skyline, and the awe-inspiring interior holds fascinating stories about its history.
Your Local Host will have suggestions for your day at leisure. Maybe you would like to sample the ultimate in British food and drink-fish & chips with a pint of bitter in a local pub.
Your holiday ends with breakfast this morning.
