Summary of The Day: Departing Dublin at 9:00am, you will travel north towards the border of Northern Ireland. From here it is a short journey into the city of Belfast, famous for its industrial past and turbulent history. After a short tour of some of the key areas of the city you will arrive in the newly redeveloped Titanic Quarter, where you will have time for lunch and perhaps a visit to the award-winning museum. Other options here include a visit to the SS Nomadic, the HMS Caroline, the fascinating Titanic’s Dock and Pump-house, and the chance to take a black cab tour of the city. In the afternoon experience the contrasts between the busy city and beautiful scenery of the Antrim Coast and Glens. The tour follows part of this coast from Ballycastle along to the world famous Giants’ Causeway - a stunning piece of coastal scenery. You will spend time exploring this area before arriving in the holiday town of Portrush for the night.
Summary of The Day: Today the tour makes its first stop in the historic walled city of Derry - designated as UK City of Culture in 2013. You will have some free time to explore the old city or one of the many museums or galleries before crossing the border again back into the Republic of Ireland. You will now travel into one of the most remote and unspoilt parts of the country - County Donegal with its stunning scenery and strong Gaelic culture. The route passes Glenveagh National Park and Errigal Mountain then follows the coast through traditional fishing villages. Along the way there will be plenty time for walks, photos and soaking up the local culture before arriving at your overnight stop in Donegal.
Summary of The Day: Travelling south along the coast from Donegal will take you into County Sligo - and the grave of famous poet WB Yeats. On route look out for the dramatic mountain scenery of Ben Bulben - great for photographs! Near Sligo Town at Carrowmore, you will have the chance to visit the largest collection of megalithic tombs in Ireland - dating back over 6,000 years. The route now turns westwards into County Mayo - an area hit hard by the great potato famine and from where many people emigrated to North America. The road takes you through large areas of farmland, bog and open moor with views to distant hills before coming back to the Atlantic Coast and Achill Island. Here you really are right on the edge of Europe and you will have time to savour the peace and quiet of this beautiful area. From here it is a short drive to Westport - your base for the next 2 nights.
Summary of The Day: Westport sits on the edge of Connemara and is the area you will explore today. The itinerary will depend on the weather and your guide will advise on the best visits for the day. Possibilities include the beautiful house and grounds at Kylemore Abbey, the Connemara National Park, Clifden (the first transatlantic flight landed here), the Sky Road and the Twelve Bens of Connemara. Along the way there will be many opportunities for photos of this dramatic landscape. Overnight again in Westport - why not sample some local seafood in one of the many excellent restaurants.
Summary of The Day: After a leisurely start you will leave Westport behind and travel inland through the heart of Connemara to the village of Cong on the shore of Lough Corrib - where the classic film “The Quiet Man” was made. There will be time for a visit to Cong Abbey or the Quiet Man Museum. From here you pass through the Maam Valley and then on to Galway City. Here you will have some free time for lunch and to explore the vibrant city centre before departing for Dublin with a stop at Locke’s Distillery in Kilbeggan on the way. Arrival back in Dublin about 7:00pm.
