Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Ireland, meet your Tour Manager at the airport and relax aboard our coach as it carries you to your hotel.

After check-in you're free to relax, or perhaps stroll down the riverside path into the lively town of Sligo. Here, St John's Cathedral and the Sligo Art Gallery are well worth a visit, and the County Museum is a must for Yeats devotees.

Day Two

Today begins with a visit to the county town of Fermanagh, Enniskillen, which shelters beneath the walls of its castle on an island in the River Erne. From there we'll visit Florence Court, where a guided tour will bring the history of this fine Georgian house to life.

Our final stop will be Belleek Pottery. The museum here includes local ceramics dating back to 1857 and a short tour will take you through the production areas and give you the chance to chat to some of the potters who work there today.

Day Three

Parke's Castle, on the north-western shore of Lough Gill, is our first stop this morning. After time to explore this beautifully restored 17th-century plantation castle we'll board The Rose of Innisfree for a short cruise around the "lake isle" that was the subject of Yeats' most famous poem.

Once back in Sligo you'll have the afternoon you yourselves, though you may like to join us for an optional city tour and a trip along the Wild Atlantic Way to Rosses Point.

Day Four

Learn about the history of the Irish wool industry as we cross into County Mayo and visit Foxford Woollen Mills, today. After a self-guided multimedia tour you'll have the chance to see master craftsmen at work in the weaving shed before we continue to Westport.

Voted the best place to live in Ireland in 2012, Westport sits on the southeast corner of Clew Bay beneath the slopes of Croagh Patrick, Ireland's 'holy mountain'. Wander around the harbour to the Quay area where the old coastguard station and warehouses now house bars, cafes and restaurants, or stroll along the tree-lined Mall.

Day Five

Today's tour begins with a trip to Glencar Waterfall, made famous in Yeats' 'The Stolen Child', and ends with a stop at Drumcliffe Church, where the poet's grave is marked with a simple headstone.

In between, we'll visit Lissadell House and Gardens, former home of the extraordinary suffragette, politician and Irish independence heroine Countess Markievicz - Constance Georgine Gore-Booth, and follow another stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way to the seaside town of Mullaghmore.

Day Six

After a final few hours relaxing or exploring Sligo, board our coach for the journey back to the airport to catch your flight home.
