A Trip to Remember


 
 

Day 1 - Dublin, Monasterboice, Battle of the Boyne site, St. Peters Cathedral, Drogheda, South Armagh Border crossing, Belfast

Leaving Dublin we begin our adventures by driving North to the bustling town of Drogheda closeby are slaughter fields of the Battle of the Boyne (1690), hear how the Irish Jacobite cause was crushed and William of Orange became the inspiration for Northern Ireland’s ‘marching season’.

We view the decapitated head of St. Oliver Plunkett (1681) in Drogheda Cathedral. Then we visit the highest Celtic crosses in Ireland at Monasterboice. Cross the border at Newry, viewing the British military fortifications in the Celtic mythology-steeped mountains of South Armagh. Then it’s on to intriguing and beautiful Belfast, birthplace of the Titanic and once the second richest city in the British Empire. We’ll view majestic Queens University and the famous Botanic Gardens.

Day 2 - Belfast, Glens of Antrim, Ballycastle, Carrick a rede Rope Bridge (seasonal), Giants Causeway, Ballintoy

One of the greatest touring Days in the world!! You can begin the day with a world famous Black Taxi Tour (optional) through the tragically divided streets of West Belfast, view the ‘Peace Wall’ and the political/cultural wall murals. We then present you with a contrast extraordinaire. One hour from the division of Belfast lie the 9 Great, glorious Glens of Antrim – ‘Switzerland in Miniature’, Ballycastle for some Dulce and Yellow Man! (Ask your driver!), the Carrick a rede Rope bridge (summer only) and the 8th wonder of the world … the Giants Causeway.

A marvellous photo opportunity at the haunting clifftop fortress of Dunluce Castle. Golden sandy beaches, Palm Trees, crystal clear water, we proudly present our beloved North Coast! We stay tonight in Ireland’s most historic City, beautiful Derry built by St. Columba in 546 AD! Famous for the musical talent, physical beauty and overwhelming friendliness of its proud citizens! Savour the legendary Derry nightlife and maybe spend the night with locals singing the Irish folk songs you’ve learned on tour – Happy Days, Happy Nights!!

Day 3 - Historic Derry, Omagh, Monaghan, Slane Castle (U2), Dublin
Today we sadly have to leave Derry, the Maiden City! But first we take the award-winning ‘Essential Walking Tour’ and visit the only complete city walls (1613-1617) in Ireland or the UK. Politics & History buffs are sure to have their thirst for knowledge quenched here. Referred to as Londonderry by Northern Ireland’s Unionists Community, this will be a truly memorable experience. Murals, Celtic Christian history and winding hilltop streets.

Derry was the scene of Bloody Sunday in 1972. We travel through Tyrone to the border town of Omagh. Through the rolling farmland of Ulster to Slane Castle! Rock Mania! This 12th Century private residence is Irelands premier concert venue and the spiritual home of U2! Great photo opportunities and the chance to hear of Irelands unsurpassed Rock prowess!

Our thirst for knowledge quenched we return to our enchanting capital, Dublins fair City!
