Dublin. From here we make the journey to Trim Castle Hotel, Trim for
our overnight stay. Evening Meal & Breakfast included.

Fermanagh, where we make a stop. Enniskillen town is uniquely situated
in the centre of the county between Upper and Lower Lough Erne which

drive around the Inishowen Peninsula to Malin Head, the northernmost
point in Ireland. Next on to Derry, the only completed walled city in
Ireland and standing on the banks of the River Foyle. Here your tour will
bring the fascinating history of this prominent walled city to life.
Wednesday : A more relaxing day as we spend it exploring Donegal, beginning with a trip
through the Glenveagh National Park.

rail journeys in the world” - the train journey from Londonderry to Coleraine.

railway tunnels and past historic landmarks. Following this spectacular
journey we re-join our coach and make the short drive to The Giants
Causeway where we include admission to the Visitor Experience and use
of outdoors interpretive audio-guide. Please Note: there is a charge
payable for the shuttle bus from the Visitor Centre to the Causeway (cost
