Itinerary

Monday 23rd July | Drive: 2 hours 20 - 130 miles

Our tour starts at Holyhead, Wales as we enjoy the Club Classic comfort of the ferry crossing to Dublin.

There will be a cocktail reception before dining in the elegant River Room overlooking the river.

After breakfast, we make the short drive into Belfast to visit the Titanic Museum. We leave our cars on the (dry) Titanic slipway to tour this fascinating museum. Afterwards, a Black Cab will take you on a guided tour of the famous landmarks in and around Belfast including the Political Murals, Belfast Castle, and much more, before returning you to your car to make your way back to the hotel. You will have the choice of which hotel restaurant to dine in this evening.

Today we head to Larne to join the Causeway Coastal Route, a great driving road that will take us to the Giant’s Causeway.
