Discover some of the most dazzling details of Ireland in the company of an expert guide.

With the help and guidance of a local specialist, discover some of the most dazzling details of the fair city of Dublin, ebullient Belfast, UNESCO World Heritage Site the Giant’s Causeway and wonderful Derry-Londonderry.

Over six nights in three cities, this is the perfect introduction to some of our favourite places on the island of Ireland. Starting with two nights in Dublin, one of the great European capitals, followed by two nights in reborn Belfast, a private tour to the Giant’s Causeway, and a final two nights in the vivacious city of Derry-Londonderry.

If you are interested in exploring the west coast of Ireland, why not check out our Wild Atlantic Way Guided Rail Tour? Perhaps combine the two, depending on availability.

With a maximum of 15 passengers per group, you can be sure of highly personal service from your knowledgeable, local tour leader on this carefully-designed McKinlay Kidd small-group rail tour. Early booking is strongly advised as places are strictly limited.
