Itinerary

Description

With a host of vibrant cities, bursting with culture, and some of the most breathtaking natural scenery, the Emerald Isle is one of the most enchanting holiday destinations in the world. Mixing this natural beauty with urban charm, we take in a blend of experiences that celebrate Eire’s panoramic landscapes as well as its lively cities and towns, including the capital Dublin. We also visit Northern Ireland to explore cosmopolitan Belfast and the amazing Giant’s Causeway.

Coach Itinerary

Day 1
We catch the ferry from Holyhead to Dublin and head to Belfast to check in to our hotel where we spend the next two nights. Our tour manager meets us at the hotel. 

Day 2 - Belfast & Titanic Experience
Our tour manager takes us on a guided tour of Northern Ireland’s vibrant capital. Belfast is now a thriving, modern metropolis with a colourful history - as a key player in the Industrial Revolution; it was the centre for the Irish linen and tobacco industries. We also pay a visit to the Titanic Experience, a fantastic museum located on site of the original shipyard in which the famous liner was built, that brings the maiden voyage of the Titanic to life.

Day 3 - Giant’s Causeway, Londonderry & Donegal
We make our way to the Giant’s Causeway, named for the enormous volcanic columns that make this National Trust-owned site such an amazing place to visit. From here we head to Londonderry, nominated UK City of Culture in 2013 and the only completely walled city in Ireland. We enjoy a guided walking tour with our tour manager where highlights include the gleaming new Peace Bridge across the River Foyle and St Columb’s cathedral. Later, we check in to our Donegal hotel where we spend the night.

Day 4 - Sligo, Galway & Lisdoonvarna
Leaving Donegal, we travel to the pretty coastal town of Sligo, lying on the banks of the River Garavogue. Surrounded by rugged landscapes, the town boasts a castle, medieval abbey, traditional pubs and a myriad of shopping opportunities.

Next stop is Galway where we enjoy a guided city tour with our tour manager. This thriving, cosmopolitan city may be the fastest growing in Ireland but it has managed to retain its convivial atmosphere. We continue on to our hotel in Lisdoonvarna where we stay overnight.


Day 5 - Limerick & Tralee
We say goodbye to Lisdoonvarna, heading for Limerick where we enjoy a guided city tour with our tour manager. Set on the River Shannon, the city is overlooked by the 13th-century King John’s Castle. From here we travel to our hotel in Tralee where we spend the next two nights.

Day 6 - The Ring of Kerry & Killarney
Our tour manager takes us on a scenic guided tour of the Ring of Kerry, journeying through an untouched landscape of tranquil lakes and rolling hills, passing through charming towns such as Killorglin, Waterville and Kenmare. We then head to pretty Killarney, famed for its jaunting cars (horse-drawn carts) operated by the local jarvies that take visitors on guided tours of the town.

Day 7 - Dublin
Finally, we head to Dublin and enjoy a guided tour of the Republic’s wonderful capital with our tour manager. With its fascinating past, iconic landmarks and plethora of convivial pubs serving up the perfect pint of Guinness, Dublin never fails to charm first-time and frequent visitors alike. We spend the night in our hotel in the Dublin area.

Day 8
After an early breakfast, we catch the morning ferry back to Holyhead and continue our journey home.

Due to ferry times, coach pickup times may be very early in the morning. On the last morning in Ireland, breakfast may be a packed takeaway breakfast due to early sailing schedules.
