7-Night Vacation in Dublin and Paris
On this trip, you'll spend seven days exploring two of the world's most iconic capital cities: Dublin and Paris. Along the way, you'll have lots of free time to snap pics of Ireland's lush green landscape, or see the Eiffel Tower and Dublin Castle up close. This vacation includes:
- Round-trip airfare
- 4 nights of standard accommodations at the North Star Hotel or Academy Plaza Hotel in Dublin
- Flight from Dublin to Paris
- 3 nights of standard accommodations at the Villa Beaumarchais in Paris
- Daily breakfast at the Villa Beaumarchais
Your first stop is Dublin, where rolling green hills are dotted with stone medieval castles and Victorian-era taverns. During your four-night stay here, you can tour the Guinness Storehouse to see how the famous stout is made, or cruise the coast to watch deep blue waves crash against craggy bluffs.
- Dublin Castle: Tour this 13th-century Gothic castle to see former viceroys' apartments, one of the city's oldest medieval towers, and the remnants of a 1,000-year-old viking fortress.
- Kilmainham Gaol is the largest unoccupied prison in Europe, and it has a haunted history: Several leaders of the Irish independence movement were executed here in 1916 following the Easter Rising (Note: “gaol” is pronounced “jail”).
- Eat like a local: Wash down a steak and kidney pie with—what else?—a pint of Guinness at one of the more than 1,000 pubs in the city.
After all these years, the City of Lights still sets the pace when it comes to fashion, art, food, and romance. Some of the best-known attractions line the Seine River, including the Notre-Dame Cathedral, which cuts the city in half. Along the Left Bank, you can pop into cafes where Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald scribbled the initial ideas for some of their most famous works.
- The Eiffel Tower is a must-see, and it's especially romantic after dark, when thousands of lights illuminate its massive iron frame.
- See the Mona Lisa's "smile" at the Louvre. This renowned art museum is packed with more than 30,000 works by the likes of Michelangelo and Rembrandt, as well as some rare relics from ancient Mesopotamia.
- Eat like a local: Try some buttery steak frites; visit a local fromagerie to sample expertly aged local cheeses.
