Coach Itinerary

Welsh And Irish Celctic Connection Tour

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 spend some time in the estuary town of Cardigan, close to the border between Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion and lying next to the River Teifi. This historic town has retained its charm, with the narrow streets, Georgian and Victorian buildings and traditional inns creating a unique atmosphere.

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 spend a relaxing day in Tenby, a picturesque seaside town on the south coast that was once a popular health resort with Victorians. There’s plenty to explore here, from browsing the wide range of shops and strolling along the cobbled streets or the sandy beach, to admiring the distinctive town walls, built in the late 13th century by the first Earl of Pembroke.

Day 4 – St Davids & Ferry to Ireland
Checking out of our hotel, we travel to St Davids, an attractive and peaceful village within the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, granted city status due to the presence of its 12th-century cathedral. This is the smallest city in Wales and is where the country’s patron Saint, St David, was born. From here we travel to Pembroke where we board a ferry to Rosslare and continue to our hotel in the historic city of 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
In the historic city of Waterford, there is plenty to do. Perhaps indulge in a spot of retail therapy, experience one of the traditional Irish pubs or explore the Waterford Crystal Visitor Centre.

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