Dublin has a lot to offer, but if you feel you have been there, done that, why not hop aboard and take a trip to historical Belfast, just 2 hours up the road? In addition you will see our lovely countryside, and we will be stopping at various spots of historic significance on the way.
Our guides are keen to make your day interesting and informative, each adding their own humour to the mix ( you’re on holiday as well, after all). We will tell you all about the Irish countryside, history and folklore, while you can just sit back and enjoy the view. No guidebooks needed on this trip! On the way, we visit St. Peter’s Church in Drogheda, famous for the embalmed head of St. Oliver Plunkett , Monasterboice – an early Christian site with some of the country’s best high crosses, as well as the Proleek Dolmen- a megalithic portal tomb, before we even get to Belfast.
In Belfast City, there are a myriad of things to do. You first will have time to do your own thing, and maybe change some money to Pound Stirling, as you are in the United Kingdom now. Then we do a political/ historical guided tour of the city, which includes the Falls and Shankill roads which are traditionally the political hotspots, pay a visit to the moorings dock and site where the Titanic was built, and then finally visit the Republican Museum, before we head back to Dublin. Your tour thus includes the pre-history, Middle Age, and contemporary history periods-Phew!
