Full Day Excursion to Waterford Crystal & the Dunbrody Famine Ship
The House of Waterford Crystal houses the World's largest selection of traditional crystal. We also visit the Dunbrody Famine Ship, which tells the story of Irish emigrants and the conditions they endured on their long sea journeys, and the lives they established in new lands.
Full Day Excursion to Cahir Castle and Kilkenny
Cahir Castle is an imposing 13th-15th Century structure, skilfully designed by Conor O�Brien to be a state-of-the-art defensive castle. Appearing to grow from the actual rock on which it stands, the castle has been the scene of sieges and bombardments for centuries and retains its impressive keep tower (entrance to Cahir Castle included in the tour cost). We have some time at leisure in Kilkenny this afternoon before returning to the hotel.
