Our included excursion begins in Hillsborough, famed for its castle, an official government residence, before continuing to Newcastle, where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea. This afternoon, we visit the town of Downpatrick, where in the grounds of Down Cathedral lies a grave reputed to be that of St. Patrick.
Enjoy our optional excursion to Belfast. Some popular landmarks are City Hall and The Titanic Belfast® Exhibition, and no visit to Belfast is complete without a drop of the ‘black stuff’ in the Crown Liquor Saloon.
A day of fantastic scenery on our included excursion as we head to the world-famous Giant’s Causeway (admission is extra), with its basalt columns and tales of ancient Irish giants. Our day continues with a visit to the fascinating walled town of Derry (Londonderry).
We leave Monaghan and travel to Dublin where you have some free time. Join our optional sightseeing tour seeing the best of this splendid city, including Trinity College, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the National Gallery and the Four Courts. Overnight tonight in the Dublin area.

guardian aged over 18 years old.

We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
"Combined with a milestone birthday and a love of landscape photography, this holiday was a ‘must do’"
