6 Day Select Holiday

This wonderfully varied holiday is based in Waterford, a thousand-year-old city with a medieval flavour and we include a free day to wander its atmospheric streets and lively waterfront. Perhaps visit the Waterford Treasures Museum to walk in the shadow of history with real characters in period costume, bringing the museum’s treasures to life. Maybe stroll through history in the city’s Viking Triangle with its quirky nooks and crannies, filled with ancient landmarks. Or visit Waterford Crystal where two centuries of crystal creating unfold. We visit Wexford, a city founded by the Vikings in 800 AD, and known for its buildings dating from the Middle Ages including Westgate Tower and Selskar Abbey. We also head to New Ross where we experience the Dunbrody Famine Ship, an authentic reproduction of an 1840s vessel with mighty masts and rigging, and where costumed characters tell the story of the Irish famine emigrants. Another gem is ancient Kilkenny, home to a magnificent castle. Our final treat is a visit to Mount Congreve Gardens one of ‘The Great Gardens of the World’.

Your Excursions

Wexford & Dunbrody Famine Ship
Our day begins in Wexford, home to a pretty marina, medieval buildings and an arts centre. We then head to New Ross, where we explore the Dunbrody Famine Ship, experiencing life as a famine emigrant through costumed characters. This authentic full-scale reproduction of an 1840’s emigrant vessel depicts life onboard.

Kilkenny & The Land Train
This compact, charming city abounds with historic treasures, and we include some fun sightseeing aboard the Kilkenny Land Train, taking in the landmarks, listening to commentary, and singing along to favourite songs. Afterwards you’ll have free time to explore the city. Why not step behind the imposing stone walls of Kilkenny Castle, see the soaring eaves of St Canice’s Cathedral, view the colourful stained glass of medieval Black Abbey or explore Rothe House – a unique sixteenth century townhouse. Elsewhere, you’ll find the Kilkenny Design Centre shopping mall with its Irish handcrafted gifts, and St Mary’s Church, which houses the Medieval Mile Museum,
filled with artefacts and sculptures.

Mount Congreve Gardens
Mount Congreve Gardens is an eighteenth century Georgian estate and a haven for horticulture and history fans with one of the planet’s largest private collections of plants from every continent. Enjoy the beautiful, themed gardens where you’ll find thousands
of distinctive trees, plants and shrubs. Perhaps treat yourself to a cuppa in the Stables Café and browse the gifts in the Secret Garden Shop.
