Savor all your afternoon tea favorites—finger sandwiches, desserts, cakes, and pastries (some dietary restrictions can be accommodated with advance notice)—as your bus travels through downtown Dublin. Pass sights such as St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Christ Church, Trinity College, St. Stephen’s Green, Wood Quay, O’Connell Street, Phoenix Park, and the grand buildings of Georgian Dublin.
