Iconic landmarks and Irish charms

Join us amid some of Northwest Ireland's finest scenery, discovering and exploring a land of rivers and loughs, towering mountains and sheltered glens, where the Irish language is still widely spoken and traditional music rings out from the pubs and bars of its ancient villages and towns. Based in the lively town of Letterkenny, you'll discover the astonishing rock formations of the Giant's Causeway, wander historic Donegal town and visit beautiful Glenveagh National Park. You'll also explore the Inishowen Peninsula, a timeless, remote area steeped in heritage and antiquity.

  • A visit to the iconic Giant's Causeway with included entry to the award-winning Visitor Centre

  • A guided tour of Glenveagh Castle
  • A drive along part of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way
  • A tour of the Inishowen Peninsula
  • A visit to the thought-provoking Doagh Isle Famine Village

Single rooms are available for a supplement

Must try: A pint of the Black stuff - not just Guinness, but also Murphy's, Beamish, Porterhouse or O'Hara's.

Fascinating fact: The Giant's Causeway gets its name from a legend that the Irish hero and giant, Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool), was challenged to a fight by the Scottish giant Benandonner. Fionn accepted the challenge and built a causeway across the North Channel so that the two giants could meet.

You say: "The coastline is stunning round there. It was wonderful. And the tours are absolutely brilliant."

Your Tour Base: Letterkenny, County Donegal

One of the most popular towns in Ireland's north, with a host of modern facilities, Letterkenny in County Donegal is an ideal base for your short stay. Dominated by the vast cathedral of Saints Eunan and Colomba, the town lies just north of the River Swilly, and a short distance from beautiful Lough Swilly.

Donegal And The Giant's Causeway Tour Itinerary

Day One: Fly to Ireland

Fly to Belfast, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your hotel. Depending on your arrival time, you'll be able to spend the rest of the day exploring the town of Letterkenny or relaxing in a local pub or cafe.

Day Two: Included Donegal excursion

Today, head to Donegal, where the town's history is reflected in a Jacobean castle and ancient marketplace, the 'Diamond'. Stroll around the streets and explore under your own steam, or board a waterbus for a different perspective on the town and its surroundings (and resident seal colony) on a 70-minute trip around Donegal Bay (payable locally).

Day Three: Included Giant's Causeway excursion

This morning, travel to County Antrim's Atlantic coast to visit to the Giant's Causeway. Long associated with legendary Irish hero Finn McCool, its basalt columns, which rise like stepping stones from the sea, were formed after a volcanic eruption 60-million years ago. Take the short minibus trip from the visitor centre to the Causeway, or walk the mile or so along the cliff path to take in the views.

After time for lunch (payable locally), continue to Dunluce Castle. Rising dramatically from the rocks above the sea and separated from the mainland by a deep chasm, the ruins of this medieval stronghold are among the most extensive in Ireland. It's a beautiful, wild and astonishingly atmospheric location, so make sure you have your camera to hand.

Day Four: Included Inishowen Peninsula excursion

Today we'll travel, past the pretty, remote town of Carndonagh and across the stunning Inishowen Peninsula, to wild, windswept Malin Head - Ireland's most northerly point. You'll also spend some time at the fascinating Doagh Isle Famine Village, where 19th-century Irish life is recreated, before returning to Letterkenny in the evening.

Day Five: Included Glenveagh National Park excursion

On today's tour you'll take in still another region of outstanding natural beauty as you explore the contrasting scenery of rugged, remote Glenveagh National Park and Glenveagh Castle, in its peaceful setting overlooking Lough Veagh. Enjoy a guided tour of the historic castle's square keep and mismatched round turrets, then wander the surrounding gardens at your leisure.

Afterwards, head to the coast, via Mount Errigal and through Dunlewy village to Bunbeg. Here, you'll have the chance to stretch your legs with a stroll along the sandy beach before continuing up and around the Bloody Foreland (named for the red hue of the rocks at sunset), to the little village of Gortahork and finally back to Letterkenny.

Day Six: Fly home

Transfer back to Belfast for your flight home, taking with you some wonderful memories.

Great Harwood Family
A very enjoyable tour with interesting intinerary. Tour manager Brian was very helpful and coach driver Tommy very amusing. The tour was made all the better due to the
excellent October weather.
The Radisson Blu hotel was very comfortable with excellent staff and in a great location. The only downside was the long table seating layout for meals. This made for cramped eating space and difficult access and egress from the table.

JULIE

Bexleyheath, Kent Family
Really enjoyed my holiday. Minor fault the Hotel served mashed potatoes all the time! Not a fan of mash. Gatwick flight fine and easy. Belfast a nightmare. they had 1 desk open for checking in 3 flights. Arrived at 1500 for 1720 flight, had no time at the airport due to delays everywhere, spent the entire 3 hours in various queues. Would not have got through them all in time if there had not been a delay to our flight. Definitely need a revision of that. But again I loved the holiday and the hotel all but the mash.
