    Day 1: Listoke and Belfast

    Leaving Dublin this morning, and Ireland for that matter, we head north towards Belfast, located in Northern Ireland. Enroute we stop in County Louth and lovely Listoke Gin Distillery. Here we will learn everything about making Irish gin. Once back on the bus, we continue our journey north, passing The Mountains of Mourne whose peaks and rolling hills inspired C. S. Lewis to write The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and was also used as a backdrop in scenes of Game of Thrones. Arriving into Belfast we will do a panoramic tour of the Falls and Shankill Roads to learn of the effects The Troubles had on the city and the entire island. Tonight, we will be staying, and enjoying dinner, at the brand-new Ten Square

    Hotel located in the heart of Belfast.

    Dinner/Overnight: Ten Square Hotel, Belfast

    Day 2: Belfast & Titanic

    After breakfast, we make our way to the Titanic Quarter of the city for a visit to the Titanic Belfast Visitor Centre which was recently voted as the world’s leading tourist attraction. Here you can learn everything about the legendary RMS Titanic, from standing in the shipyard it was built all the way to its maiden voyage and subsequent place in history. When finished up at the centre, you can avail of our transfer to the city centre where the rest of the afternoon and evening are yours, free to explore Belfast and everything it has to offer. With countless options for dinner you’ll be hard pressed choosing, there’s Robinson’s Bistro which has been offering delicious pub food for over 100 years, or if you’re feeling like treating yourself you can check out Deanes, owned by famed Northern Irish chef Michael Deane.

    Day 3: Antrim Coast

    Today, we head north along the Antrim Coast for a visit to the famous Giant’s Causeway. Enroute we make a stop in the Glenariff Forest Park at the Glenariff Teahouse for some coffee or tea, with beautiful views of the park, the shop also has freshly baked scones available that are delectable. When finished we continue along the Antrim Coast until we reach the legendary Giant’s Causeway. The story goes the Irish giant Fionn mac Cumhaill built the causeway to fight the Scottish giant Benandonner, others claim it was the result of volcanic activity millions of years ago. Whichever story you believe, what remains true is that the Giant’s Causeway is definitely a sight to behold and one that will leave you in awe when you do.

    Next, we head to Seamus Heaney Homeplace which celebrates the life and work of the late poet and Nobel Laureate, Seamus Heaney. From here we make our way to the historic walled city of Derry, which was the last walled city to be built in Ireland and the only city whose walls remain completely intact in the country.

    Overnight: Maldron Hotel, Derry

    Day 4: Donegal and Kilronan Castle

    This morning we will be met by a local guide and embark on a walking tour of the city to learn all about Derry’s turbulent past. Afterwards we make our way to Irish House in Donegal, where we will have an Irish coffee and a demonstration of how tweed sweaters were originally made as you watch the threads weave in and out on the old wooden loom. We then enter the romantic domain of W.B. Yeats via Drumcliffe where he is buried and other sites in Sligo associated with the life of the poet, before making our way to our final overnight property – one of Ireland’s most luxurious castle hotels – Kilronan Castle. After checking into your room, we will be enjoying a lovely dinner in the Castle, after which you can enjoy a drink or some tea by the fireplace in the stunning drawing room.

    Day 5: Kells and Dublin

    After enjoying a leisurely breakfast with time to explore the castle grounds and spa it is sadly time to make our way back to Dublin. Leaving Kilronan we will head to Arigna Mines where you can get a unique perspective into what coal mining life was like in Ireland from the 1700’s all the way to it’s closure in 1990. Once we make our way back above ground we head towards the ancient village of Kells. Enroute we will be stopping for lunch in Cavan, with loads of little cafes and restaurants you’ll be sure to find a bite to eat here. From here we make our way to our last stop on tour, Kells, part of Ireland’s Ancient East. This olden village was where the famous Book of Kells was written and protected for over 800 years before being moved to Trinity College in the 17 th  century. This quaint village is part of the reason Ireland is referred to as the Land of Saints and Scholars. When we finish exploring here we sadly have to make our way back to Dublin.
