Hotel

Day 1)
This morning we travel from Dublin Port across to Holyhead stopping at the Roman town of Chester with over 2000 years of history and heritage.  Late in the afternoon we continue to our overnight hotel.  Enjoy dinner together tonight.

Day 2)
Today we meet with our local Cotswolds Tour Guide and enjoy a delightful day discovering some of the prettiest villages and historic towns in the heart of England, where time has stood still for over 300 years.  Relax onboard while the coach tours through the gentle rolling hills, picture postcard golden stone villages and allowing plenty of time for stops at tempting tea shops.  We’ll show you the best of the quintessential Cotswolds countryside.

Day 3)
Today, we take a relaxing drive to the lovely town of St Ives, a typical Cornish fishing port.  Our scenic journey continues by Penzance to Land’s End, the most westerly point of Britain.  Enjoy splendid vistas of one of England’s most beautiful coastal landscapes with cliffs carved out by the waves of the mighty Atlantic Ocean.  We’ll stop for a short visit to Marazion offering splendid views of St Michael’s Mount, an important pilgrimage destination throughout the ages.  We return to our Newquay hotel in the early evening for dinner.

Day 4)
Today we travel to the beautiful Devonshire seaside town of Torquay one of the UK’s premier tourist destinations.  It’s a perfect place for an easy-going day.  Stroll through the copper domed Pavilion with its excellent shopping centre or walk down to the harbour and admire the beautiful yachts moored in popular marina. Walk down along the palm tree lined promenade and soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere.  Torquay has been popular since Victoria times and was the home of Agatha Christie.

Day 5)
Our first stop today is to the Eden Project.  Built in a huge clay pit, it tells of man’s dependence on plants.  It’s a vast site that contains two giant multi-domed, plastic-clad conservatories or ‘biomes’.  One has a Mediterranean climate “warm temperature” and the other a “humid tropic” climate.  Outside in the hollow of the clay pit itself is the “third biome” – that of the Cornish climate itself – where the story continues out-of-doors.

Our day continues with a visit to Truro, Cornwall’s Capital.  Truro has always been a popular visit with our guests over the years, spend some time shopping, exploring and sightseeing before returning to our hotel.

Day 6)
We travel to the pretty town of Glastonbury in Somerset to visit Glastonbury Abbey.  Since Medieval times it has been regarded as the earliest Christian foundation in Britain and the burial place of King Arthur. It's an internationally renowned site and we’ll enjoy a guided tour of the Abbey ruins with time afterwards to explore the pretty town.  We make our way to our final overnight hotel for dinner.

Day 7)
We leave shortly after breakfast on our journey to the port to meet our ferry taking us back to Rosslare Port.  Our final journey together will give you time to reflect and chat about the wonderful places we have visited, and new friends made.
