Our wonderful tour of Ireland begins in the capital city of Dublin, which was founded by the Vikings over 1000 years ago, and is known for its historic buildings and beautiful gardens. Here we see Christ Church Cathedral, originally constructed in 1038, but rebuilt many times since, it is the oldest building in the city; the Old House of Parliament, today is called the Bank of Ireland, College Green, this 1739 building served as Ireland's Parliament until the Act of Union in 1801 that imposed direct rule on Ireland from London. Trinity College is Ireland's most famous college; it was founded in 1591 by Queen Elizabeth and is home to the famous Book of Kells. Next we stroll down Grafton Street, Dublin's best shopping area known for trendy shops and cafes. Next we leave the city and discover Ireland's strong national trait for horse breeding, training, and racing; also we explore the Irish fashion industry, which is based on Irish wool. We learn how Irish designers have an international reputation using fabrics created by their own weavers and creating innovative styles. 02/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
