Wales, Ireland & Northern Ireland

The second day on the Road to 2021 started bright and early in Dublin, Ireland, after an early morning ferry trip from Hollyhead, Wales. We saw some of the sights of this great city, including the Guiness Brewery, Trinity College and Merrion Square Park.

On our travels across the Emerald Isle, we met three companies – Hogan Healthcare, ACGT Vector, and ChainbridgePharma. Once we left Dublin, our route for the day worked towards Belfast in Northern Ireland, and eventually we made our way to another ferry, which took us to the last destination of the day – Cairnryan in Scotland.
