Travel by ferry from Holyhead to Dublin, then we continue to Co. Carlow for our 4-night stay at the Woodford Dolmen Hotel.


Venture in to the Bog of Allen for a guided tour of the award-winning Lullymore Heritage & Discovery Park. A thoroughly enjoyable tour taking us through 9000 years of history is followed by a spot of traditional turf cutting and a ride on the Peatland Heritage Railway. In the afternoon we return via Kildare where we include a guided tour of the Irish National Stud, home to some of Ireland's most revered thoroughbreds and entrance to the accompanying Japanese Gardens.


A short drive takes us to Huntington Castle and Gardens. Built in 1625 and still home to the same family, we enjoy a guided tour with a family member, who will tell the tales of this beautiful castle. Later, we visit the charming seaside town of Wicklow. We include an unforgettable tour 'through the gates of hell' as we enjoy a guided tour of Wicklow's infamous gaol.


Today we begin with free time in Waterford. Founded by Viking traders in 914, the city has an exciting medieval flavour. We continue to New Ross and a guided tour of the 1840's Dunbrody Famine Ship Experience, with its animated interpretation of Ireland's famine story.


An afternoon ferry crossing and our homeward journey.
