Upon arrival, meet your friendly tour manager and transfer to your hotel. Relax, unwind and spend the rest of the day at leisure, no doubt looking forward to a wonderful break spent exploring the ‘Fair City’ of Dublin and its surrounds, and of course, seeing the maestro, André Rieu, perform.
Join your tour manager for a guided introduction to Dublin, which includes historic Trinity College, Dublin Castle and famous Ha'penny Bridge. Wander Grafton and O’Connell streets, perhaps drop in for a coffee in Bewley’s – a Dublin institution – or visit the Guinness Storehouse, to learn about the ‘black stuff’ and to enjoy a pint or two. Don’t miss the much-modernised Temple Bar area, the height of Dublin fashion. The afternoon is free to spend at your leisure, perhaps enjoying a bite to eat at a pub before heading by coach to the 3Arena for tonight’s concert, the undoubted highlight of the trip. Acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest living musical legends, André Rieu was classically trained and is now an accomplished violinist, an excellent conductor and a truly great showman. Rapt audiences sway with his delightful music, hum along and even dance in the aisles, so prepare yourself for a truly unforgettable evening.
Today you will enjoy a full-day excursion to the nearby Powerscourt Estate (entrance included) and the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Estate is a large, country estate close to Dubin that is noted for its house and 19 acres of pristine, landscaped gardens. Powerscourt Waterfall – the highest in Ireland – can be seen from the grounds, which also include a golf course. The house dates back to the 13th century but was extensively refitted in the 18th century. Enjoy a gentle stroll around the grounds, perhaps pausing for some light refreshment (payable locally). On the drive back to Dublin, you’ll enjoy a scenic tour of the picturesque Wicklow Mountains, Ireland’s largest continuous uplands area. Sit back, relax and enjoy as you pass some spectacular scenery, before enjoying your final evening in Dublin at leisure.
Continue your exploration of Dublin under your own steam today, before transferring to the airport for your return flight at the end of a marvellous break.

Not forgetting that Newmarket Holidays specialises in included and optional excursions to ensure your escorted tours are memorable from beginning to end.
When you choose an air holiday, you can either tour as many attractions and cultures as you can fit in or base yourself at a quiet resort and take your pick from a collection of excursions and day trips. This means that your holiday can be as adventurous or as relaxing as you wish. If a cruise is your ideal group tour, Newmarket Holidays has departures from nearly every major port in the UK and can take you to places in and around Europe, the Canary Islands, the Baltic Cities, Greenland, the Far East, Australia and Africa. You can also choose from a wide range of European and worldwide river cruises or select a Christmas and New Year river cruise along the Danube, the Rhine or the Seine River.

As Newmarket Holidays is all about offering the best value for money holidays, this competitive tour operator promises to price match any like-for-like escorted tour found cheaper elsewhere.
Please note: After many years of operation, Newmarket Holidays has decided to discontinue the UK and European coach breaks and tours departing from local pick-ups in the UK (as of 2019) to concentrate on its range of UK, European and Worldwide air holidays, ocean cruises and river cruises.
