The Great North

Monday April 1st 2024

A new addition for this year is a more expansive tour of Northern Ireland, visiting the highlights of Belfast and travelling west via the stunning causeway coastline to Derry-Londonderry. With plenty of places to visit along the way, from there we continue west and discover the Inishowen Peninsula and Malin Head, the most northerly point in Ireland. A night in Donegal at the end of the tour before we finish up this northern adventure with a visit to the Ulster Folk Museum in Co, Tyrone. This coach tour will certainly leave you wanting more of what Ulster has to offer. From landscapes to history to rugged coastlines all you will be left wanting is sunshine.
