This unique tour uses Ireland’s artistic and literary wealth to explain the historical moments, traditions, wars, movements, and eras that have sculpted Ireland through the centuries.

We’ll explore the highlights of the National Gallery, National Library and National Museum, with a break half-way through.

- Symbolic paintings representing the Norman Conquest of Ireland and the Irish Civil War;
- Insight into the life and works of W.B. Yeats - Ireland’s Greatest Poet;
- The Tara Brooch and the Ardagh Chalice – treasures that epitomise Ireland’s Golden Age (500-800AD).
