We are taking the Best of Ireland Tour in June and plan to arrive in Dublin several days early. In planning what to do during these days before the tour to minimize duplication, it would help us to know what is covered on the tour itself. Specifically, on Day 2 there is a "walking tour through Dublin". Does this cover the "O'Connell Street Stroll" as contained in the RS guidebook? What about the student-led "Historical Walking Tour"?
We are taking day trips to Newgrange and Glendalough / Powerscourt, but any suggestions on what to do in Dublin itself that will not be duplicated on the Tour would be appreciated.
