After some much needed sleep and a hearty full Irish breakfast we will depart for Northern Ireland also referred to as the six counties or Ulster. The province of Northern Ireland was created with the partition of the island of Ireland in 1921.

Your destination today will be Belfast, the only city in Ireland to fully experience the Industrial Revolution. Linen, rope making, tobacco and most famously ship building including the building of the Titanic on the Harland & Wolff shipyard were the main industries. The Troubles took their toll on the economic life of Belfast but the past fifteen years of peace have returned much prosperity while the genuine friendliness of the city never left.

Travelling North your route today will take you through County Meath & County Louth. On arrival in Belfast visit Titanic Belfast which is the world’s largest Titanic themed visitor attraction located on the very slipways where she was built at the heart of Belfast. In the afternoon you will be joined by a specialised local Belfast City Guide to see and hear all about the history of this once troubled city including the murals of the Loyalist Shankill Road & Nationalist Falls Road.

Tonight you will overnight & dine at the Clayton Hotel in Belfast.

Here you will visit the Old Bushmills Distillery, the oldest licensed distillery in the world, for a whiskey tasting. Its grant to distil was given in 1608 but it is believed that spirit was probably made here 200 years before that!

Further north on the coast you will visit The Giant's Causeway, the subject of many legends and where an estimated 37,000 basalt columns extend from cliffs down into the sea.

The route will take you through Meath, the Royal County due to its history as the seat of the High King of Ireland. Your last stop today will be at Trim Castle. Trim Castle is the largest Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland. Hugh de Lacy and his son Walter built it over a 30 year period, finished in 1206.

The General Post Office

The General Post Office of Ireland The General Post Office of Ireland

The General Post Office of Ireland had many homes before finally settling on its current location of O'Connell Street, on January 6th 1818. It is most famous for housing the Irish Rebels during the Easter Rising of 1916.

The building was destroyed by fire during the uprising and was left unattended until the Irish Free State government set about restoring it. The General Post Office now acts as a visitor centre and sheds an amazing light on some of Ireland's darkest days and the country it was to become.
