Fred Olsen Cruises from Liverpool - Sailing around Iconic Ireland

 

 

3-10 September 2019                    7 nights                     Black Watch            from £1149

 

                             

Set sail from Liverpool for a cruise that takes circumnavigation of the ‘Emerald Isle’ and delivers a rich collection of iconic Irish highlights, from the vibrant city life of Dublin and Belfast to Cobh’s infamous harbour, and the magnificent metamorphic mountains of Connacht and Ulster.  With so much packed into one sailing, this immersion into Irish culture is sure to be a real treat

 

First you could discover the colourful houses of Cobh harbour – home to the pier from which many boarded the ill-fated Titanic, or pucker up for a trip to Blarney Castle to kiss its famous stone, so much to see including Spike Island prison, Killybegs – Ireland’s largest fishing port & Galway, steeped in history.

 

The iconic highlights continue in historic Belfast which is the gateway to the breathtaking Giants Causeway and the birthplace of Titanic too and visiting the site where it was built features on many a-to-do-list.

 

Dublin, time in the city can be spent tracking down the Book of Kells, a hand-illuminated manuscript of the Gospels in Trinity College or perhaps uncover the vibrant culture of the famous Temple Bar district and fans of the ‘black stuff’ are well-advised to visit the popular Guinness Storehouse.
