This new tour takes us to Ireland’s north west coast to see Europe’s tallest sea cliffs at Slieve League which rise majestically above the wild Atlantic coastline. From our base in Sligo, we will also visit the lovely town of Donegal and spend time at Lissadell House and Gardens, a Regency mansion with stunning views over Sligo Bay and beautiful gardens to explore.
We stay overnight at the Trim Castle Hotel in Trim before continuing our journey on to Sligo where we stay for four nights at the Clayton Hotel Sligo. Our final hotel will be the Summerhill House Hotel in Enniskerry, where we stay overnight before catching the ferry. All the hotels offer en suite bedrooms with lift access and a limited number of rooms with walk in showers are available on request. Ground floor rooms are available on request at the Clayton Hotel and Summerhill House Hotel.
