Trip Overview

Depart from Dublin to Lisbon.

Upon arrival, your private driver will transfer you to your stunning palatial hotel in the heart of Sintra. We’ve arranged a three night stay, giving you plenty of time to relax and explore the city.

Traipse the colourful streets of Sintra.

Journey through hundreds of years of history and culture as you pass amazing chalets and aristocratic residences. In the centre, old houses have been converted into quaint handicraft stores and traditional pastry shops.

Quinta da Regaleira, Sintra
Discover Pena Palace.

Travel back in time to the 19th-century Portuguese court as you explore the iconic multicoloured walls of the palace, admiring its incredible combination of architectural styles, colours and shapes. Afterwards, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch in one of Portugal’s most beautiful forests.

Hike the Cabo da Roca.

This cape is recognised as one of Portugal’s best hiking areas. Begin your walking trail by the Atlantic Coast, soaking up the Mediterranean climate and admiring the lush vegetation as you walk. Witness places of natural and geological interest including dinosaur’s footprints.

Enjoy an authentic Sintra wine tasting.

Visit Quinta Casal de Santa Maria for a wine tasting paired with some tapas. Between the ocean and the Sintra Hill, these are the most western vineyards of Europe. Also explore Cascais, once the summer residence of the Portuguese monarch.
