Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

This morning depart Dublin for a guided tour of the Hill of Slane, with its ancient ruins of a Franciscan Monastery.

Snap a selfie or two, then head to Belfast, your home for the next two nights, where you’ll delve into the crossroads of British and Irish culture during an introductory sightseeing tour with a Local Specialist.

You’ll visit the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre and watch how the extraordinary natural phenomenon comes to life from the perspective of the wildlife that find sanctuary here. Soar above the cliffs like the curious-looking Atlantic Puffins you’ll see while you’re here, and dive beneath the surface of the water to see the ancient sediment that have given rise to this towering treasure on the County Clare coastline. Enchanted by the irresistible beauty of this special place, you’ll travel to the Flying Boat Museum in Foynes, where you’ll Dive Into Culture as you board a replica Boeing 314 to experience life as a passenger of a bygone era when this was the last stop before crossing the Atlantic by air. Enjoy dinner at your hotel this evening.
