Day One

Fly to Belfast, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your hotel. Check in, then spend the rest of your day relaxing or beginning to explore.

Day Two

Highlights of this morning's tour of Belfast will include City Hall, Queen's University and Stormont, as well as West Belfast's Peace Wall, the political murals of the Shankhill and Falls roads, and the ultra-modern developments of the Titanic Quarter.

After the tour, explore the colourful Christmas markets in the grounds of City Hall, browse the nearby shops, and perhaps even visit the extraordinary Titanic Exhibition, which chronicles the construction and short life of the ill-fated liner.

Day Three

We'll leave Belfast early this morning, and travel south to Dublin. After a guided tour of the major sights - Trinity College, Dublin Castle and Ha'penny Bridge - you'll be free to wander Grafton and O'Connell streets, or visit the Guinness Storehouse to learn about the black stuff and enjoy a pint or two. Don't miss the city's Christmas market or the lively lanes of Temple Bar before we return to Belfast this evening.

Day Four

Enjoy a last leisurely breakfast, and depending on your departure time possibly a last chance to shop and sightsee, then return to the airport to board your flight home.

We wanted to experience Belfast and opted out of Dublin to get an extra day there. We went on the excellent included coach tour, but organised the rest ourselves. It was great value. The hotel was basic but adequate - the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable - if perhaps a little obsessed with pointing out hotels and restaurants.
