Tour Itinerary
Day 1

We arrive at our overnight hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2

We head to our afternoon crossing and arrive at the hotel to a welcome tea/coffee and shortbread.


Day 3

Belfast Harbour Cruise, HMS Caroline & Titanic Belfast
Today, we make our way to Belfast Harbour where tea/coffee & scones await, along with a guided boat tour of Titanic Harbour. After setting sail in the morning, we continue the maritime theme into the afternoon with some time in Belfast's famed Titanic Quarter, where we can view Titanic's original dock and pump house. Enjoy some maritime history on board HMS Caroline, a First World War era warship (and now a floating museum), before visiting the world-famous Titanic Belfast. This experience tells the Titanic story though nine interactive galleries. We then roam the shipyard, and journey to the depths of the ocean, immersing ourselves in all things Titanic.

Day 4

Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Belfast & Crumlin Road Gaol
This morning, we enjoy the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. Take a step back in time, as we wander through the pretty parkland, and experience life in Ulster more than a century ago. Here we encounter costumed locals, demonstrating traditional crafts along the way. The Ulster Transport Museum houses one of the most comprehensive transport collections in Europe. There's time to see locomotives, horse-drawn carriages, vintage motorbikes and cars. We then embark on a 'hop-on' guided coach tour of Belfast, exploring the city's most historic and significant points of interest. Our day concludes with an extraordinary tour of the former prison, HMP Belfast.

Day 5

Antrim Coast, Larne to Carrickfergus train & Whitehead Railway Museum
Our day begins with a scenic journey along the stunning Antrim Coast, considered one of the greatest drives in the world. Enjoy stunning views of the sheer cliffs and pristine beaches. We continue our coastal roams with a train journey from Larne to Carrickfergus. Having piqued our interest in train travel, we round-off our transport themed tour with a visit to Whitehead Railway Museum. Here, we soak up the history of the steam train industry in Ireland, and even hop aboard the footplate of an 1879-built steam engine!

Day 6

We make our way back to the crossing and to our overnight hotel

Day 7

After breakfast, we make our way home.
