Treasures of the Emerald Isle
Explore the romantic manors, castles, landscapes and art of Ireland, from dynamic Dublin to picturesque Kilkenny and Cork, up thorough Gaelic Sligo and on to Belfast.
Begin in Dublin, the heart of Irish culture and the home of its great collections of art, including the 9th century Book of Kells and the National Gallery of Ireland’s fine collection of European and Irish art. Visit the prehistoric site of Newgrange, and the spectacular Malahide Castle and Belvedere House before travelling south to Killkenny, for visits to Jerpoint Abbey and the famous crystal factory at Waterford. Turn west towards Cork, kissing the Blarney Stone and spending a day in Cobh, last port of the ill-fated RMS Titanic.
Travel through the spectacular landscape of the Ring of Kerry, and stay in magnificent Adare Manor, before continuing through Galway to Sligo, home of WB Yeats. End in Belfast, where grand castles and manors grace a city of emerging 21st century confidence.
