This morning we visit Waterford, Ireland’s oldest city where you will find over a 1000 years of history around every nook and cranny. Waterford is also famous for its crystal and the House of Waterford Crystal should not be missed. This afternoon we continue to New Ross where the historic emigrant ship Dunbrody towers over the quayside. You will be able to climb on board this full size replica of the original ship built in 1845 and learn about the fascinating history of this ship which for 30 years carried thousands of emigrants from Ireland to North America.B, D
We take a drive along a spectacular coastal stretch known as the Copper Coast, it extends along the County Waterford coastline for 25kms and is named after the 19th century copper mines that lie at the heart of this spectacular stretch of cliffs. Initially we visit the holiday haven of Tramore with its golden sand, clear waters and panoramic bay views before we travel to the old harbour town of Dungarvan where there will be further time to explore and enjoy some lunch. This afternoon we continue on to the heritage town of Youghal, one of the best examples of a Norman walled port in Ireland with quaint streets, Victorian shop fronts and 13th & 16th century dwellings.
Today we visit Kilkenny, Irelands Medieval city and begin our day with a visit to Kilkenny Castle, which dominates this historical small city. We then delve into a treasure trove of artefacts with a guided tour of Medieval Mile Museum. Here, we soak up more than 800 years of Irish history. We finish the day with some free time to explore charming Kilkenny. Catch glimpses of the town’s well-preserved churches and monasteries, or amble along the winding lanes dotted with craft shops selling goodies like pottery, paintings, knitwear and jewellery.B, D
