6 Day Dublin & Belfast Tour
Two of our favorite cities with foodie experiences and other special events.

There are many references to the monuments of Brú na Bóinne (The Palace or Mansion of the Boyne) in Early Irish literature and tradition. They are associated with the Tuatha Dé Danaan, the People of the Goddess Danu, a race of super-natural beings who according to tradition ruled Ireland before the coming of the Celts and afterwards retreated into the fairy mounds and forts. We will visit one of the mounds. Merchant Hotel. Complimentary use of the Gymnasium, Sauna, Steam Room & Roof Top Hot Tub

Time for shopping in the Victorian shopping area.
Day 2 Private Game of Thrones Day Tour
Winterfell Castle & Demesne, located just 40 minutes from Belfast, was used extensively for the filming of George RR Martin's epic adaption of Game of Thrones® novels. When you first arrive onto the grounds you soon realize why the HBO® location scouts chose Old Castle Ward; the sprawling medieval walls and imposing castle tower gate, the beautiful surrounding landscapes and far-reaching views across the lough; it was the perfect place to create Winterfell - home of the Stark family. One thing though...as you approach Winterfell for your Game of Thrones® tour watch out for the dreaded White Walkers!
Day 3 Visit the Titanic Museum with headsets. The SS Nomadic - Tender to the Titanic and the last remaining White Star Line ship in the world! Restored to her original glory and back home in Belfast’s historic Hamilton Dock. Come on board and experience over 100 years of authentic maritime and social history.
Afternoon tea at the Culloden. Standing high on the slopes of the Holywood Hills, overlooking Belfast Lough and the County Antrim Coastline, is the magnificent Culloden Estate and Spa, the most prestigious luxury five star hotel in Northern Ireland. Originally built as an official palace for the Bishops of Down, the Culloden stands in 12 acres of beautiful secluded gardens and woodland. Palatial surroundings, exquisite decor, fine antiques and exceptional service combine to give the Culloden Estate and Spa a unique air of elegance. Afternoon Tea is served daily from 1.30pm to 5pm in the Drawing Room.
A ceremony of delicious decorum for indulgent afternoons. There is no better place to enjoy a traditional Afternoon Tea in Belfast than in the luxurious five star surroundings of Culloden Estate and Spa.
Day 4 Giant’s Causeway visit. Bushmills lunch (own expense). We will replace with optional studio tour (if available)
