Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh, with extension to Highlands
These lands were once home to ancient Celtic and Gaelic tribes; today their history blends into the modern day. Step into the Middle Ages on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and under the towering spire of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin. In Belfast, old conflicts have given way to an influx of restored nineteenth-century architecture and a thriving arts scene.
