- Ireland’s Ancient East Slide 3 of 3: Uncover 5,000 years of history in Ireland’s Ancient East through compelling characters, ancient wonders, hidden stories and millennia-old myths.
Walk the streets of Dublin to feel the energy of more than 1,000 years of history, as echoes of the Vikings mix with quaint boutiques, cobbled streets reverberate with the sounds of musicians, and 18th-century parks play host to festivals and food markets.
It’s easy to head west from Dublin to the Wild Atlantic Way and hit the road on a 1,500-mile coastal journey starting from the wind-whipped tip of Malin Head in County Donegal to the beauty of Kinsale town in County Cork. The west of Ireland will wow you with its epic sites like Kylemore Abbey, the Ring of Kerry and Galway City.
Ireland’s Ancient East, a region that ripples with over 5,000 years of history, surrounds Dublin. There are compelling characters and ancient mysteries, hidden stories and millennia-old myths. Highlights include Kilkenny Castle in County Kilkenny, Glendalough in County Wicklow and the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary. Be sure to explore Newgrange, a passage tomb older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian Pyramids.
North of Dublin awaits Belfast in Northern Ireland, an electric city that pulsates with culture. Don’t miss the Causeway Coastal Route where iconic sites like the Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge are waiting to be discovered. The island of Ireland offers something for everyone!
TV and movie fans can visit filming locations from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Game of Thrones® and Mel Gibson's Braveheart, which featured Trim Castle.
Trim is just one of the many 30,000 castles found on the island of Ireland and each one is even more stunning than the next! Dunluce Castle sits at the tip of the Antrim Coast on Northern Ireland's Causeway Coastal Route, and is one of the most picturesque and romantic castles you’ll find on the island.
Located in County Clare, Dromoland Castle is one of Europe's finest hotels that offers the experience of living like landed gentry, surrounded by luxury and beauty. Built in the 16th-century, the castle is a magnificent Renaissance structure that has been transformed into a luxury hotel, which is bookable through Delta Vacations.
There's no better way to immerse yourself in Ireland's stunning nature than to experience it firsthand. There are walking and hiking trails all over the island that wind through lush woodland, open green pastures and breathtaking cliff sides. Or hit the road on two wheels and bike through the welcoming cities like Belfast and Galway or the many peaceful greenways like the Great Western Greenway or the Waterford Greenway.
Food is an integral part of contemporary culture on the island of Ireland — from lively farmers' markets and incredible local ingredients to craft brewing and distilling and innovative chefs who celebrate the rich connection between place and plate.
The island is bursting with incredible food experiences. Uncover the gourmet secrets of cities, such as Dublin, Belfast, Galway and Cork. In the company of expert food guides, cook up a supper you just caught on a Wild Atlantic Way beach. Or delve into the deep traditions of Ireland's whiskey by exploring the whiskey trails and hearing the stories behind some of the iconic distillers, including Bushmills in Northern Ireland, Slane Whiskey in Ireland's Ancient East, and Clonakilty on the Wild Atlantic Way.
Delta Vacations flight + hotel packages include round-trip airfare aboard Delta or a partner airline to Dublin International Airport (DUB). You can purchase round-trip private car, SUV and van transfers from the airport to your hotel.
