The weather might be cold outside, but we’ve got some new hot updates to our tours in 2018. From unique accommodation to totally brand new tours. 2018 is already shaping up to be an exciting new year.
New Accommodation – Slieve Donard
Situated on the shores of Royal County Down, and under the gaze of the Mourne Mountains, you’ll find Slieve Donard Resort and Spa. A beautiful redbrick Victorian hotel, Slieve Donard blends modern comforts with traditional style in a tasteful way. Take a stroll into the seaside town of Newcastle which is only a stones throw away, or enjoy the stunning views from the nearby beach. The perfect place to unwind on the last day of your tour.
New Castle Stay – Markree Castle
A new castle stay on our tours. Markree Castle is situated in Sligo, in north west Ireland. Recently renovated with extraordinary detail paid to restoring its original character and features, while at the same time modernized for the modern guest. Considered one of the finest historic homes in Ireland. The castle is rich with history and a joy to just wander around.
More Time in Galway City
From 2018 onward any tour that visits Galway will spend at least two hours in Galway city. A bustling young city, Galway has really come into its own in the last few years. From Eyre Square, a walk down Shop Street is a must. Onlookers are treated to entertainment from buskers as well a countless small cafes and shops, including the famous Claddagh Ring shop. As you reach the end of Quay Street, you can chill out at Spanish Arch or explore Galway Harbour further. Not far from Spanish arch is the impressive Galway Cathedral, which is home to plenty of interesting art and design.
New Kerry UnCorked Driftwood Tour
Kerry UnCorked is back. Following on from customer feedback, we’ve changed our 8 Day Vagabond Kerry UnCorked Tour to a 7 Day Driftwood Tour that includes the Cliffs of Moher .
Kerry UnCorked is all about spending more time savouring Ireland’s south-west. We still get in much loved stops, such as Gougane Barra, Kenmare and Dingle. On the first night there will be a stay in Co. Clare. Unique to Kerry UnCorked though, there are two nights in the coastal town of Kinsale, Co. Cork.
Kinsale is considered a ‘foodie’ capital. A colourful buzzing town, there will be plenty of time to savour the sea food dishes, explore Charles Fort, visit craft breweries and enjoy a whiskey tasting in a local pub.
When in Dingle with Kerry UnCorked, you’ll stay in Emlagh House. A luxurious and charming guest house on the shores of Dingle Bay. Each of its rooms is tastefully designed with their own character. This charming guesthouse is only a short stroll away from the lively town of Dingle.
Brand New Tour – 7 Day Magnetic North Adventure Tour
Our most off the beaten track tour to date. One for the adventure seekers, this tour explores Ireland’s north west and focuses on Donegal particularly. In fact, Donegal was named recently by National Geographic as ‘The Coolest Place on the Planet’! Ride horses on deserted beaches, explore Ireland’s most northerly point and soak in the culture and history of this undiscovered corner of Ireland.
