Itinerario

Giorni 1

Partiamo da Dublino alle 09.00 e ci dirigiamo a nord verso il confine con l’Irlanda del Nord con una fermata nella città di Dundalk per ammirare la sua splendida cattedrale. Da qui andiamo a Belfast. Nel pomeriggio proveremo i contrasti tra l’indaffarata città e il bellissimo scenario della costa di Antrim e i Glens. La gita segue parte di questa costa da Ballycastle lungo il famoso Giants’ Causeway. Passerete del tempo esplorando questa zona prima di arrivare a Portrush per passarvi la notte.

Giorni 2

La prima fermata sarà a Derry prima di tornare nella Repubblica d’Irlanda. Ora viaggerete nel County Donegal con i suoi straordinari scenari di cultura gaelica. L’itinerario passa per il Parco nazionale di Glenveagh e il monte Errigal e poi continua lungo la costa attraversando villaggi di pescatori tradizionali. Passerete la notta a Donegal.

Giorni 3

Arriviamo a County Sligo. Potrete ammirare le bellissime spiagge a Rosses Point e lo spettacolare scenario del Ben Bulben. L’itinerario volge a occidente verso County Mayo e la via vi porta attraverso grandi aree di fattorie, paludi e brughiere aperte con colline sullo sfondo prima di tornare alla costa atlantica e l’isola di Achill. Passerete le prossime 2 notti a Westport.

Giorni 4

Esplorerete la zona di Connemara. Tra le possibilità ci sono la bella casa e i terreni dell’abbazia di Kylemore, il Parco nazionale di Connemara, una gita in barca a Killary Fjord, Clifden, la Sky Road e i Twelve Bens di Connemara. Dormirete di nuovo a Westport.

Giorni 5

Lascerete Westport e viaggerete all’interno attraverso il cuore di Connemara al villaggio di Cong sulle rive del Lough Corrib. Ci sarà tempo per una visita all’abbazia di Cong o al Museo Quiet Man. Da qui passeremo attraverso la valle Maam e poi attraverso Galway City. Saremo di ritorno a Dublino intorno alle 19.00.

Itinerario (English)

Day 1

  • Explore historic Belfast with an insightful city tour
  • Learn about the tragic history of the world’s most famous maritime disaster in the museums and attractions of the Titanic Quarter
  • Wander the glens and coast at Antrim, an area of outstanding natural beauty overlooking the superb Scottish coast
  • Walk where giants fought and changed the earth at the unique and stunning Giant’s Causeway

Departing Dublin you head north to Belfast, a city famed for its industrial heritage and turbulent past. You take a short city tour which covers the capital’s triumphs, tragedies and soul.

You then have time for lunch and exploring in the Titanic Quarter, a regenerated hub where the famous liner was built and launched in 1911. Here you can visit the award winning Titanic museum, board the HMS Caroline or take a black cab tour of the city.

Leaving bustling Belfast behind, you travel through the phenomenal scenery of the Antrim Coast and Glens, an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Moving along the winding roads from Ballycastle, you enter the awe inspiring setting of the Giant’s Causeway, a place where history and myth collide spectacularly with raw geological power. Waving farewell to the giant’s steps, you head to Portrush, a charming fishing village and your home for the night.

Day 2

  • Marvel at the 17th walled city of Derry, with its famous 7 gates and bustling markets
  • Immerse yourself in the ancient Gaelic culture of Donegal as you pass through its rugged mountains
  • Experience the haunting beauty of the remote Glenveagh National Park

You head to Derry, the fabulous 17th-century walled city that boasts 7 ornate gates. Derry was designated as UK City of Culture in 2013, and you get time to explore its museums, galleries and excellent markets.

From here, you head to County Donegal, which boasts stunning scenery and a strong Gaelic heritage. You then head into the picturesque Glenveagh National Park and past the soaring peak of Mount Errigal, before traveling through the traditional fishing villages of the area. Along the way there will be plenty time for walks, photos and soaking up the local culture before arriving at your overnight stop in Donegal.

Day 3

  • Wander amongst the ancient standing stones of Carrowmore
  • Explore the bogs and misty moors of County Mayo
  • Gaze in awe at the magnificent sea cliffs of Achill Island

In the morning, you pass south along the coast near Donegal and into County Sligo. This area is home to the burial site of famed poet WB Yeats, and dramatic views of the gorgeous mountain, Benbulben.

Outside Sligo Town lies Carrowmore, where you have the chance to visit the largest collection of megalithic tombs in Ireland, some of which date back over 6000 years.

Moving westwards, you enter County Mayo, an area ravaged by the Great Potato Famine. Winding roads curve through the picturesque farmlands, bogs and open moors, offering views of distant hills and the Atlantic coast, where you’ll visit the dramatic Achill Island. Here you have time to savour the rugged sea and peaceful beauty. From here it is a short drive to Westport – your base for the next two nights.

Day 4

  • Explore the Connemara National Park’s verdant marshes and incredible historical sites
  • Stroll through the superb grounds at Kylemore Abbey
  • Roam Clifden, site of the first transatlantic flight landing, and home to a delightful castle
  • Be enchanted by the seemingly infinite blend of earth and sky at sunset on the Sky Road
  • Prepare to be stunned by the legendary Twelve Bens, the famous jagged mountain range of Connemara.

Westport and the Connemara National Park are the areas you explore today.The itinerary is flexible today and your guide will ensure you take the route that best suits the weather .

Your options include the beautiful house and grounds at Kylemore Abbey, the Connemara National Park, Clifden (the first transatlantic flight landed here), the Sky Road and the Twelve Bens of Connemara.

After an incredible day of exploration you return back to Westport, where you can dine on the delicious local seafood in the town’s top notch restaurants.

Day 5

  • Gaze into the past at the iconic 7th century ruins of Cong Abbey
  • Walk the iconic locations of “The Quiet Man” on the scenic shores of Lough Corrib
  • Enjoy the culture, sea views, and historic streets of Galway City

Traveling through the heart of Connemara, you arrive in the town of Cong on the shore of Lough Corrib. This area was where “The Quiet Man” was filmed and you’re free to wander the local museum devoted to the movie. Alternatively, you can visit the magnificently restored 12th century Cong Abbey.

Your route then weaves through the Maam Valley, a stunning pass lined by gorgeous mountains. Exiting the valley, you head to Galway City, a vibrant harbour city that combines traditional market life with high quality restaurants and pubs.

You have free time to sample the town’s delicious seafood before we head to Locke’s Distillery for a tipple. This is the oldest licensed distillery in the country, and boasts a superb museum.

You then travel back to Dublin.

Recensioni

Most amazing trip ever

Stewart Woolf Posted on 27/07/2019

My wife and I have already been on five Rabbies tours and this will make the sixth. We actually did the 9 day tour which covers most of Ireland and had two amazing guides Dave for the first five days and John for the final four days. Both of them were excellent in every way possible. Their vast knowledge of the history, geography, flora and fauna and generally everything interesting was just fantastic, not to mention their wonderful sense of humour. We were taken to places out of this world and travelled routes off the beaten track to see amazing sites of nature. Rabbies choices of accommodation were first class and we enjoyed every place we stayed. Each host was very accommodating and pleasant and the food was exceptional. Overall we are now looking forward to our next trip and will maybe try for one of the European tours. Thank you Dave and thank you John and thank you Rabbies for everything.

Great Tour

Excellent tour and Tour Guide

Linda Eather Posted on 28/10/2018

I have just returned from a wonderful 5 day tour of Ireland. The scenery was amazing and the tour guide Gabriel provided the most interesting historical commentary. In addition he was helpful and accommodating to the individual needs of passengers. A fascinating tour, with a fabulous guide, which is highly recommended.

Tour vom 07.05.2017 - 11.05.2017

Maren Lukowsky Posted on 21/05/2017

Es war bereits meine 3. Reise mit Rabbies und ich habe mir als erstes ein großes Dankeschön an Liam, unseren Tourguide. Er ist auf die Wünsche und Befindlichkeiten aller Tourteilnehmer immer sofort eingegangen und hat sehr viel Informationen über Land und Leute mit uns geteilt. Dann hat Rabbies wieder super schöne Unterkünfte gebucht. Sie befanden sich immer in Zentrum- oder Hafennähe. So konnte man abends gut zu Fuß die neue Umgebung erforschen mit einem anschließenden Pubbesuch. Die gesamte Organisation war wieder einmal sehr gut! Sogar das mit dem Wetter hat super eklappt -) Wir hatten die gesamten 5 Tage blauen Himmel und Sonne satt. Fazit: Immer wieder gerne und es gibt 5 Sterne von mir!!!

Great tour

Andrea Goldstein Posted on 17/05/2017

We took the Northern Ireland and Atlantic Coast from May 10th-14th and it was great.our guide Dean was able to tell us a lot about irelands history.he also had a good sense of humor so we always had something to laugh about.

Super tour with Feargal - June 15

Debbie S Posted on 09/07/2016

Loved the land and seascapes. Achill Island was so beautiful and serene. Our guide/driver Feargal was exceptional. So knowledgeable about history, Irish and Celtic music and always sharing tips on where to eat and pubs to visit when we had free time in the evenings. Highly recommend this tour and hope you are as fortunate as us to have Feargal at the helm.

Alloggio

Da dove viene questo tour pernottamento?

Potrete soggiornare una notte in Portrush, una notte a Donegal, e due notti a Westport.


Come funziona?

Nel tour non è incluso l’alloggio. Questo significa che puoi chiederci di prenotarti un alloggio di buona qualità nelle strutture locali, oppure puoi trovare un alloggio tu stesso.


Voglio che Rabbie’s prenoti il mio alloggio. Cosa succede ora?

Il tuo alloggio sarà riservato e ti accompagneremo fino alla porta. Il pagamento per l’alloggio dovrà essere versato direttamente alla struttura ospitante, quindi assicurati di avere con te contanti, perché non tutti i bed and breakfast accettano carte di credito.

In base alla disponibilità, non sempre possiamo garantire l’alloggio di tua prima scelta. Ma non devi preoccuparti, in caso di serie difficoltà ti invieremo un’e-mail.


Che cosa succede se voglio cambiare la mia prenotazione dell’alloggio effettuata da Rabbie’s?

I cambi di alloggio non possono essere garantiti e sono soggetti alla relativa disponibilità. Sarà applicata una tariffa minima di modifica pari a £5, fino a un massimo di £20 in base alla durata del tour.

Domande Frequenti

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

How do you cater for people with accessibility needs?

We aim to accommodate everyone. To read more information on how we do this, click here to go to our accessibility guide.

Do you take children on your tours?

We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.

You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.

How much time do I get off the bus?

We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance.

What is ABTOT?

You're protected by ABTOT when you chose to let us reserve your accommodation on a multi-day tour. This means you can claim back anything you've paid us if we become bankrupt. Read our terms and conditions for more information.

I have more questions, who can help me?

If you have any more questions, call us on +44(0)131 226 3133, email tours@rabbies.com , or check out our full FAQs .
