A history spanning over a thousand years, vibrant nightlife, and a mix of Georgian and modern architecture make Dublin a popular European tourist destination.
Explore Dublin's surroundings by going to Kilkenny (Butler Gallery, Kilkenny Castle, &more). There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Kilmainham Gaol Museum, stroll around St Stephens Green, admire the striking features of Saint Patrick's Cathedral, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

For maps, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, use the Dublin trip website.

Rochester, USA to Dublin is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 5 hours traveling from Rochester to Dublin. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Rochester in June: high temperatures in Dublin hover around °F and lows are around °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Belfast.

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Belfast: Causeway Coastal Route (in Ballintoy), Coast Rd (in Larne) and Giant's Causeway (in Bushmills). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Titanic Belfast, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, play a few rounds at Royal County Down Golf Club, and get lost in a book at Ballynahinch Library.

To see reviews, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Belfast trip maker site.

Drive from Dublin to Belfast in 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or take a train. Expect a daytime high around °F in June, and nighttime lows around °F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
