Gold - Donegal & The Giants Causeway
8 Days Half Board by Coach
Highlights: Giant’s Causeway, Derry, Bushmills Irish Whiskey, Derryveagh Mountains, Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way coastline
Picture a green land of emerald-coloured hills and rugged coastlines, pretty little villages with colour-washed cottages, and an easy, timeless way of life... welcome to Ireland’s wild Atlantic coastline! Stretching for over 1500 miles, Ireland’s coastline is alive with myths and legends, of soaring cliffs and rocky coves.
And no trip to this wonderful neck of the woods is complete without a visit to the amazing coastal rock formations known as the Giant’s Causeway, and now Ireland’s most visited tourist attraction.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Sunday: From local departure points we travel to Scotland for our overnight stop.
Monday: We take the ferry to Belfast and onward across country to our hotel.
Tuesday: A day to relax and explore at leisure.
Wednesday: A memorable day as we explore the North West coastlines of Donegal, part of the scenic Wild Atlantic Way, a journey alongside tranquil inlets, remote beaches and rugged coastlines before skirting the spectacular white peak of Mount Errigal. We continue to the village of Kinclasslagh before returning through the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains.
Thursday: A fascinating full day excursion to County Antrim. We pass the dramatic clifftop Dunluce Castle to visit the unique Giant’s Causeway, said to have been the work of the legendary Celtic giant, Finn McCool. Learn about the Causeway – often referred to as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ – at the visitor centre. We also take time to visit Bushmills Irish Whiskey for a fascinating guided tour.
Friday: A half day visit to the fascinating city of Derry, where you can walk on the walls that enclose the city centre, stroll on the River Foyle quayside and explore the revitalised shopping area (8 days only).
