Leixlip Castle and Lunch at the K Club - Dublin - 2018 ( 7 Hours 30 Minutes )
Dublin, Ireland | 20 Sep 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Today we will depart from the pier in Dublin with our driver & Irish historian Victoria Browne. We will begin our drive towards County Kildare to Leixlip village which was established by the Vikings, and home to the Leixlip Castle.

We will enjoy a private tour of Leixlip Castle & Gardens and home to The Hon Desmond Guinness. Built on a rock at the confluence of the River Liffey and the Rye Water, the central part of the castle dates from 1172, just after the Norman Invasion of 1171 and is one of the oldest continuously-inhabited buildings in Ireland, pre-dating Dublin Castle by 30 years. It was not of major military importance but withstood a 4-day siege by the army of Edward Bruce in 1316. It was built by Adam de Hereford, a follower of Strongbow. The Hon Desmond Guinness purchased the property in April 1958. We will then enjoy tea & biscuits at the castle in this unique setting after our private tour.

Next, we will drive to the Kildare Country Club, a unique 5-star property, and one of Ireland's most historic Palladian houses where our beautiful luncheon will be served. The Country Club is a spectacular property along the River Liffey covering 330 acres of magnificent manicured gardens, landscaped grounds, woods and lakes. After lunch there will be some time to stroll the grounds at leisure.

We will then return to Dublin and enjoy a panoramic tour of the city before returning to the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual attire with comfortable walking shoes. Moderate walking. The tour of Leixlip Castle takes approximately 1 hour but there will be an option to sit down during the tour if one needs to. There are some steps at the castle but nothing too steep or high. There is the option to take a short walk on the grounds of K Club after lunch which is light walking and no steep slopes.
