Holiday Itinerary

Itinerary

 

SATURDAY

An early start as we travel to Holyhead for an afternoon ferry to Dublin. We continue to the Summerhill House Hotel, Enniskerry for dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation.

SUNDAY

We drive through the heart of Ireland to Athlone, situated on the banks of the River Shannon, Ireland’s longest waterway, and continue into Galway for a three night stay at the Menlo Park Hotel.

MONDAY

Today we explore one of the highlights of the Wild Atlantic Way with a trip to the mystical Aran Islands.  We board the ferry from Rossaveal to Inis Mór, the largest of the three islands but with less than 1000 inhabitants.  On our minibus tour of the island we discover fabulous coastal scenery, the ruins of early Christian monasteries and Dun Aengus, the finest example of a stone fort in Europe which stands on a cliff edge.  There will be time to visit the Aran Sweater Market and Museum, featuring the islands most famous export, before returning to the mainland.

TUESDAY

Our route takes us along part of the Wild Atlantic Way, one of the world’s longest defined coastal routes, to Kylemore Abbey.  Here we can enjoy the Abbey’s beautiful setting with its Victorian walled gardens and welcoming tea rooms.

WEDNESDAY

We spend a morning at leisure in the old harbour city of Galway.  Steeped in history with old medieval streets, traces of city walls and the Spanish Arch, one of Galway’s historic gems, this is a fascinating place full of character. In the afternoon we travel across the country to Bray for dinner, bed and breakfast at the Wilton Hotel.

THURSDAY

We board an early morning ferry from Dublin to Holyhead, with breakfast included on board, and continue homeward
