Day One

Make your way to Liverpool Pier Head for embarkation and this evening's sailing.

Day Two

The port of Ringaskiddy is gateway to the great Irish trading city of Cork. Discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland on a shore excursion, or perhaps head into the beautiful rolling countryside beyond - to the fashionable resort of Kinsale, or to famous Blarney Castle for a chance to kiss the Blarney Stone and receive "the gift of the gab".

Day Three

This morning finds us in the fabled Isles of Scilly. Discovery anchors in sheltered blue waters, giving you the opportunity to go ashore by tender to explore tiny Hugh Town on St Mary's and the flower-strewn byways beyond. You'll also have the opportunity to take an excursion to stunning Tresco, where the world-famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest sub-tropical plant collection.

Day Four

Today Discovery stops in Milford Haven, offering you the chance to explore the stunning Pembrokeshire coastline and exquisite St David's Cathedral, both easily accessible on a shore excursion.

Day Five

Discovery arrives back in Bristol at the end of a truly wonderful late summer cruise.
