This seven-night circumnavigation of Ireland serves up a full-flavoured taste of the Emerald Isle, showcasing authentic and iconic highlights throughout. Visiting five wonderfully welcoming and rewarding destinations, you’re in for a real treat, with chances to sample famous tipples, uncover fascinating history, take in must-see attractions and more.

Beginning your enriching journey south of the Irish border, the delights of Dun Laoghaire await your discovery. Stroll along the East Pier Walk, past the Victorian bandstand, as brightly coloured boats sail in and out of the harbour. Continuing the theme of relaxation, breathe in the heady floral scents of the People's Park and wander around the perfectly manicured lawns, before visiting the weekend market of art collections and delicious local produce. Then there’s Cobh, a joy to explore with its brightly coloured harbour and impressive cathedral. Cobh is where many of the Titanic’s passengers embarked on her fateful voyage and the fantastic Titanic Experience is a must-visit to explore the town’s links to the ill-fated ocean liner.

Along the south-west coast, Borealis will sail picturesque bays and by the magnificent metamorphic mountains of Connacht and Ulster, to present you with a snapshot of some of Ireland’s most spectacular scenic regions, before arriving at Galway. This charming city boasts centuries of fascinating history; exploring the remnants of the medieval town here will reveal plenty of interesting historical sites, such as the Spanish Arch. Then it’s on to Killybegs, a picturesque town situated within the valleys and rolling hills of the County Donegal’s beautiful Wild Atlantic Way. Here a tour to the stunning Bluestack Mountains is highly recommended, though you may opt to relax at Fintragh Bay, one of Ireland’s best beaches. Finally, a visit to Belfast, Northern Ireland’s attraction-packed capital offers you the chance to explore the city’s legendary connection to Titanic at the Titanic Belfast exhibition; visit the historic steamship SS Nomadic; and marvel at the Renaissance-style City Hall. Belfast is also your gateway to the incredible geological wonders of the Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site.

Further Information

  • From 1 January 2021, new rules apply on travel within Europe.

    Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air.

    New rules apply when travelling to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure:

    Passport
    British passport holders need to have at least six months left on their passport and it needs to be less than ten years old.
    These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.
    Visa
    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.
    Border Control
    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You may also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing.
    Healthcare Cover
    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad. Your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will no longer be valid. It’s particularly important you have travel insurance with the right cover if you have a pre-existing medical condition. This is because the EHIC scheme covers pre-existing conditions, while many travel insurance policies do not. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.
    Mobile Roaming
    From 1 January 2021, the guarantee of free mobile phone roaming throughout the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway will end.
    Check with your phone operator to find out about any roaming charges you might get from 1 January 2021.
