Day 1:

Our Christmas Shopping trip to Manchester starts with an early boarding of our luxury coach and a transfer to Dublin Port.  Our coach drives onto the Stena Line ferry for our 3 hour 30 minute sailing to Holyhead Port.

We transfer directly to Manchester, arriving in the mid afternoon to our 4* hotel in Manchester City. Check in will be available from 3pm onwards so our coach drivers aim for arrival after 3pm. 

Day 2:

Our coach departs Manchester at 9am and travels the 1 hour 15 min drive to Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet Centre. Cheshire Oaks is home to one of Europe’s premier designer outlet centres, offering superb discounts on well know high street brands as well as world famous luxury names.

We travel there on a Monday, the quietest day of the week and we’re there bright and early before the shopping rush begins giving you a head start on your Christmas shopping designer bargains.

There are plenty of dining options here as well as coffee shops for you to have lunch. Our coach will leave to return to Manchester from the coach park at 4pm. The evening is free for more shopping or fun in Manchester.

Not all our passengers decide to join us on this excursion, please note that if you’re not onboard the coach at the time of morning departure, the coach will depart regardless.


Day 3:

At leisure in Manchester.

Visitors travel from all over the world to shop in Manchester and it’s easy to see why.

Shopping centres such as Manchester Arndale and The Trafford Centre as well as high street destinations such as Exchange Square and Market Street offer an unrivalled selection of international brands combined with the best of British at department stores like John Lewis, Selfridges, House of Fraser and Marks and Spencer. For that extra special something, visit boutique districts around King Street, Spinningfields and New Cathedral Street and browse their designer shops. Or if one-off independents and handmade is more your thing, Manchester’s alternative and creative heart, The Northern Quarter, is home to countless vintage stores, record shops, cafés, bars and restaurants with so much to see and do, you will certainly have a busy free day!

We’re also offering a morning transfer departing at 9.15am to The Trafford Centre with a return back to the hotel at 3pm 

Day 4:

Our coach departs from outside the hotel at 9am and travels to Holyhead in Wales. Subject to road, weather and traffic conditions we’ll stop at Morrison’s Supermarket in Holyhead for some last minute purchases. It’s a short distance over to the port where we will take the lunchtime sailing with a planned arrival time of 5:30pm into Dublin Port and then continue to our original pick up points.
