Air And Coach Tours Of Ireland

Day 1

We catch the ferry from Holyhead to Dublin where we meet our tour manager before heading to Belfast to check in to our hotel for the next two nights.

Day 2 – Belfast & Titanic Experience

Our tour manager takes us on a guided tour of Northern Ireland’s vibrant capital. Belfast is now a thriving, modern metropolis with a colourful history - as a key player in the Industrial Revolution; it was the centre for the Irish linen and tobacco industries. We also pay a visit to the Titanic Experience, a fantastic museum located on site of the original shipyard in which the famous liner was built, that brings the maiden voyage of the Titanic to life.

Day 3 Giant’s Causeway, Londonderry & Donegal

We make our way to the Giant’s Causeway, named for the enormous volcanic columns that make this National Trust-owned site such an amazing place to visit. From here we head to Londonderry – the only completely walled city in Ireland. We enjoy a guided walking tour with our tour manager where highlights include the gleaming new Peace Bridge across the River Foyle and St Columb’s cathedral. Later, we check in to our Donegal hotel where we spend the night.

Day 4 Sligo, Galway & Lisdoonvarna

Leaving Donegal, we travel to the pretty coastal town of Sligo, lying on the banks of the River Garavogue. Surrounded by rugged landscapes, the town boasts a castle, medieval abbey, traditional pubs and a myriad of shopping opportunities.

Next stop is Galway where we enjoy a guided city tour with our tour manager. This thriving, cosmopolitan city may be the fastest growing in Ireland but it has managed to retain its convivial atmosphere. We continue on to our hotel in Lisdoonvarna where we stay overnight.

Day 5 Limerick & Tralee

We say goodbye to Lisdoonvarna, heading for Limerick where we enjoy a guided city tour with our tour manager. Set on the River Shannon, the city is overlooked by the 13th-century King John’s Castle. From here we travel to our hotel in Tralee where we spend the next two nights.

Day 6 The Ring of Kerry & Killarney

Our tour manager takes us on a scenic guided tour of the Ring of Kerry, journeying through an untouched landscape of tranquil lakes and rolling hills, passing through charming towns such as Killorglin, Waterville and Kenmare. We then head to pretty Killarney, famed for its jaunting cars (horse-drawn carts) operated by the local jarvies that take visitors on guided tours of the town.

Day 7 Dublin

Finally, we head to Dublin and enjoy a guided tour of the Republic’s wonderful capital with our tour manager. With its fascinating past, iconic landmarks and plethora of convivial pubs serving up the perfect pint of Guinness, Dublin never fails to charm first-time and frequent visitors alike. We spend the night in our hotel in the Dublin area.

Day 8

We check out of our hotel very early to catch the ferry back to Holyhead; therefore a voucher will be provided to enjoy breakfast on board. On arrival in Holyhead, we continue our journey home.

Due to ferry times, coach pickup times may be very early in the morning.

"I have just returned from a Grand Tour of Ireland with seven of my friends and the whole experience was excellent. Our driver John was always helpful and David our guide was very experienced and the whole trip was far better than expected. You could not of asked for better locations of the hotels and on arriving dinner was waiting for us, breakfast was always good. The meals were limited in choice at two hotels but given the excellent value in the price it was lack of choice than quality. I have been on many coach holidays before to Scotland and America and this one was the best in all ways." Mr Morgan
