Itinerary

New Year in Kilkenny & the Wicklow Mountains

  • December 29

    Regional departure by coach, then to Holyhead for the ferry to Ireland, then to Carlow for a five-night stay.

    Meals - Dinner

  • December 30 - Waterford

    Today, enjoy our optional excursion to Waterford – the oldest city in Ireland and first visited by the Vikings in 852 AD. The walled city has retained much of its medieval character, together with the graceful buildings from its 18th century expansion. The parameters of the 10th century settlement can be clearly identified in The Viking Triangle. Reginald's Tower is the most historic urban medieval monument in Ireland.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • New Year's Eve - Dublin

    Today, we visit Dublin. Be sure to get a drink of the ‘black stuff’ in one of the many homely taverns and, of course, see the city’s main highlights, including Trinity College and the Ha’penny Bridge.

    Tonight we enjoy our New Year celebrations, including a hot punch reception and gala dinner, followed by entertainment and a glass of sparkling wine at midnight.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • New Year's Day - Wicklow Mountains

    Join our full day included tour to the spectacular Wicklow Mountains, visiting the valley of the two lakes, Glendalough, celebrated equally for its beauty and for its historical and archaeological interests.

    We end the day in ‘Ballykissangel’ fame, Avoca.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • January 02 - Kilkenny

    Today's included excursion takes us to Kilkenny, Ireland’s old medieval capital. You have free time to explore the town at leisure or join our optional walking tour. Above the broad sweep of the River Nore sits the castle, while a pretty humpbacked stone bridge leads up into narrow, cheerful streets laced with carefully maintained buildings.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • January 03

    To Holyhead, then home.
