Itinerary

Description

We have the feeling of stepping back in time on this two-centre tour that combines the breathtaking scenery, gorgeous coastline and picturesque towns of south west Wales with the fascinating and unspoilt region of Ireland’s Ancient East. Perfect for those who are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; this tour is guaranteed to enchant!

Coach Itinerary

Day 1
We join the coach and travel to our hotel in Fishguard, our base for the next three nights.

Day 2 - Cardigan & Carmarthen
We travel north this morning, spending some time in the estuary town of Cardigan, lying next to the River Teifi. The narrow streets, traditional shops and cafés, many with their original Georgian and Victorian fronts, help to give the town a unique visitor experience.

We continue to Carmarthen, on the banks of the River Towy, which claims to be the oldest town in Wales and the birthplace of the wizard Merlin. We take in the rich history here as we stroll along the medieval lanes and alleys of the walled Old Town.

Day 3 - Tenby
We visit Tenby, a picturesque seaside town on the south coast of Wales that was once a popular health resort with Victorians. There’s plenty to see and do here, including a good selection of shops, a clean sandy beach and distinctive town walls, built in the late 13th century by the first Earl of Pembroke.

Day 4 - St David’s & Ferry to Ireland
Checking out of our hotel, we travel to St David’s, an attractive village within the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, granted city status due to the presence of its 12th-century cathedral.


From here we travel to Pembroke where we board a ferry to Rosslare and continue to our hotel in Waterford, where we stay for three nights.

Day 5 - Cork & the Titanic Experience, Cobh
We start the day in Cork, Ireland’s second largest city, distinctive for its bridges spanning the River Lee which rushes through its centre.  

We then travel the short distance to the harbour side town of Cobh where we visit the Titanic Experience. Located in the original White Star Line Ticket Office at what was the departure point for the final 123 passengers who boarded the Titanic, we retrace the steps of these passengers with an audio visual tour and interactive exhibits.

Day 6 - Day at leisure in Waterford

Day 7
After an early breakfast, we catch the morning ferry from Rosslare to Pembroke and continue our journey home.
