Dublin, the City and Cultural Center

From the comfort of your own home, take a trip to the Emerald Isle. Learn about the capital city and center of culture that is Dublin. From Dublin Castle, Kilmainham Jail, to St. Stephen's Green and from the Guinness Factory to Temple Bar, Dublin is an amazing city. Your guide will describe and take you through the main sights of the city that in Irish is called Baile Átha Cliath.

The Cliffs of Moher

Located about an hours drive from the western coastal city of Galway, the mammoth Cliffs of Moher sit high above the rough northern Atlantic Ocean. With a highest point of over 700 feet the Cliffs are imposing from above and below. Over 1.5 million people visit the cliffs each year. Learn about the topography and culture surrounding the Cliffs including the Aran Islands, which are remote fishing islands part of the Gaeltacht, areas of Ireland where Irish Gaelic is the primary language.

The Giant's Causeway and the Legend of Finn McCool

Located at the opposite corner of the Emerald Isle from the Cliffs of Moher, about a 6 hour drive, you will find the Giant's Causeway. The Causeway is found on the Northern Channel and is believed in legend to have connected Ireland to Scotland. The Causeway today is a gathering of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. These symmetric rocks create what can be easily imagined as a pathway, though the length to Scotland is up for debate. According to legend, this Causeway was destroyed after an argument between the Irish giant Finn McGool and the Scottish giant Benandonner. There are many versions of the legend on both sides of the Channel. Your guide will describe the theories and how they are tied into the folklore of the Irish people.

Great pictures and travel tips for Ireland experience!

Mike did a great job virtually showing us the different areas of Ireland with maps and beautiful pictures...wonderful! My only request would be to have subtitles with the names of the places on the pictures or have a guide type them in the chat as he was describing them. It was very difficult and frustrating to not hear or understand the proper names of these places. All and all, It was worth the money!
