DAY 1: DUBLIN TO BALLINTOY

Tour starts 8.30am. We head north and cross the border into Belfast. Take time to see the city and visit Belfast’s Titanic Experience to learn about the iconic yet doomed ship. You also have the chance to do a famous Black Cab Tour with a local at the wheel and explore the Loyalist and Republican heartlands with their famous political murals. Onward to check out the 'Dark Hedges' Game of Thrones before arriving in the rural village of Ballintoy. Here you can then visit the stunning Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge where you can sway Indiana Jones' style over the choppy Atlantic Ocean below.

 

DAY 2: BALLINTOY TO DERRY

What a way to start the day, The Giant's Causeway! Follow in the footsteps of Giants on the eighth natural wonder of the world, with its thousands of hexagonal columns you can make up your mind what caused it; a giant or geology? We travel further along the beautiful coast to Derry, our home for the night. This medieval city will test your emotions as you are brought face to face with its troubled history both past and present.

 

DAY 3: DERRY TO GALWAY

Today we make our way back to the Republic of Ireland. We visit the final resting place of our world famous poet W.B. Yeats before travelling on to the quaint town of Westport for lunch. The wild and rugged Connemara mountains and glens await you before we hit the cultural capital of Ireland, Galway. Also known for its lively atmosphere and buskers.

 

DAY 4: INIS MÓR

Travel back in time! We spend a whole day on Inis Mór, the largest of the Aran Islands. The locals are fluent Irish (Gaelic) speakers and you’re free to explore the island and get chatting to them over a pint. 3,000 miles of stone walls await as you walk, hire a horse and cart or rent a bike to explore the island. You can’t miss the awe-inspiring Dun Aonghasa, a 3,000 year old Iron Age ring fort perched on the edge of a 300 foot high cliff. After a tremendous day it’s time to head back to the main land for a pint of Guinness or two in one of Galway’s many buzzing pubs.

 

DAY 5: GALWAY TO DUBLIN

We’ll explore the weird and magical world of the Burren, Ireland’s limestone 'lunar landscape' and home to ancient tombs, fairies and leprechauns! Next up are the awesome Cliffs of Moher rising hundreds of feet over the Atlantic Ocean with amazing views which have inspired many an artist. We cross the peat bogs of central Ireland before making our way back to the Fair City of Dublin arriving at approximately 5.30pm.
