Holiday Itinerary - Kilkenny, Waterford & the Wicklow Mountains

Day 1

We catch the ferry from Holyhead to Dublin where our tour manager joins us. We travel on to our hotel in Kilkenny, arriving in time for a late dinner.

Day 2 - Wicklow Mountains National Park & Powerscourt Gardens

We head into the Wicklow Mountains National Park which covers 20,000 hectares of stunning mountain scenery, with vast sweeps of  heatherclad moorland, hills, bogland, deep glacial valleys and lakes. The mountains are also home to a variety of wildlife habitats.

Afterwards, we continue on to the beautiful Powerscourt Gardens, set against the backdrop of the breathtaking Sugarloaf Mountain and boasting a wonderful blend of formal gardens, striking terraces, fine statuary, ornamental lakes and a wide variety of trees. The gardens were recently voted No.3 in the World’s Top Ten Gardens by National Geographic.

Day 3 - Waterford & Suir Valley Railway & House of Waterford Crystal

We start the day with a scenic heritage train journey on the Waterford & Suir Valley Railway, taking in the panoramic views as we travel along the picturesque banks of the River Suir and the beautiful Suir Valley.

We continue on to the thriving maritime city of Waterford, where we visit the House of Waterford Crystal. Our guided tour takes us through the
home of the world famous Waterford Crystal’s manufacturing facility where we learn how the stunning crystal is made, including demonstrations
from the Master craftsmen using the traditional methods of mouth blowing, hand finishing, sculpting and engraving.

Day 4 - Kilkenny & Rock of Cashel

This morning, we spend some time at leisure in the charming medieval town of Kilkenny with its many walking trails through pretty laneways, 13th-century St Canice’s Cathedrl and historic castle.

Later, we head west to visit the iconic Rock of Cashel, one of Ireland’s most spectacular archaeological sites, set on a rocky outcrop. The collection of medieval buildings includes a 12thcentury round tower, 13th-century Gothic cathedral and 15th-century castle.

Day 5 - Dublin

Checking out of our hotel, we travel to Dublin where we spend an afternoon at leisure. Once Europe’s fifth largest city with a history that stretches back over a thousand years, Dublin is now one of the most vibrant cities in the world with numerous friendly pubs serving up the perfect pint of Guinness. We also have the option to join a locally guided tour of the city (£10pp) before spending the night in our hotel in the Dublin area.

Day 6

After an early breakfast, we catch the morning ferry back to Holyhead and continue our journey home.

Due to ferry times, coach pickup times may be very early in the morning. On the last morning in Ireland, breakfast may be a packed takeaway breakfast due to early sailing schedules.
