Door to Door Service

A new tri centre tour offering something different with dramatic scenery and the beauty of both North & South Wales together with Southern Ireland. Starting in South Wales we visit the National Botanic Gardens of Wales both a visitor attraction and a centre for research and conservation. 13th century Picton Castle is a truly unique property being half castle and half fortified manor house surrounded by stunning gardens and we stop here on the way to catch the ferry to Ireland. From our hotel at Carlow we visit medieval Kilkenny with its castle, cathedral and many shops and visit Smithwick's Experience to learn about Ireland's oldest ale brewed since 1710 and of course sample it. A visit to Waterford gives us the opportunity to stroll along the quay and maybe visit one of the many traditional pubs and cafes before visiting the new House of Waterford Crystal a must see. An afternoon ride through the Suir Valley by train brings our last full day in Ireland to a close. As we head to Dublin for the ferry back to the UK, we stop off at Powerscourt Gardens in County Wicklow one of the most beautiful gardens in Ireland. The tour draws to close in North Wales with a journey through the Snowdonia National Park to the seaside town of Porthmadog where we board the Ffestiniog Railway and travel to through the dramatic scenery of mountains, lakes and waterfalls to the slate quarry town of Blaenau Ffestiniog and continue by coach to Betws-y-Coed.
