Dublin, Ireland

— 25 nights

Fair City

A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Venture out of the city with trips to Thomastown (Kilfane Church, Jerpoint Abbey, &more), Ferns Castle (in Ferns) and Kilkenny (Kilkenny Castle, Go With The Flow - River Adventures, &more). Next up on the itinerary: explore the galleries of Kilmainham Gaol Museum, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, take in the spiritual surroundings of Saint Patrick's Cathedral, and stop by Temple Bar.

To see maps, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Dublin trip itinerary planning tool.

Port Angeles, USA to Dublin is an approximately 31-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 8 hours traveling from Port Angeles to Dublin. Expect a daytime high around 57°F in October, and nighttime lows around 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Wed) to allow time to drive to Belfast.

Belfast, United Kingdom

— 13 nights
A city with character, Belfast remains a great place for a leisurely exploration, as it is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, who usually opt to visit Dublin instead.
Change things up with these side-trips from Belfast: Portrush (East Strand & Dunluce Castle), Bushfoot Strand (in Portballintrae) and Giant's Causeway (in Bushmills). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Titanic Belfast, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at The Boatyard Distillery, contemplate the long history of Crumlin Road Gaol, and learn about all things military at War Years Remembered (War Museum).

To find maps, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Belfast road trip planner.

Traveling by car from Dublin to Belfast takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or take a train. In October, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 48°F. On the 9th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
