In the afternoon we take a tour to St Patricks Grave and St Patricks Centre in Downpatrick. The Story Of Ireland Starts Here. The area around Downpatrick is often referred to as St. Patrick’s Country, as it is home to important stations in the life and work of Ireland’s national saint. St. Patrick’s final resting place is also said to be right next to the Down Cathedral in Downpatrick. A large block of granite lies above the grave, in which the name PATRIC was carved with old Irish letters. The Saint Patrick Centre is one of Northern Ireland's leading attractions and a must see destination

Entrance to the Giants Causeway Visitor Experience and to see the famous stones is included. Please note: The Translink easy access bus service to the stones is not currently in operation.

The Causeway Coast and Glens region is rightly known for its spectacular scenery and off the beaten track there are also many equally spectacular hidden gems to discover. There are designated places of Outstanding Natural Beauty, havens for butterflies, wildlife and rare birds; protected ancient landscapes and woodlands; monuments, follies and ruins, megalithic stones and pilgrimage sites.




¨ Day 5 - Londonderry Our visit today will be to the fascinating walled City of Derry (Londonderry). During your visit, a sightseeing tour by coach and on foot will give us an overview of the city. We drive along the River Foyle to view the city’s iconic peace bridge, the Georgian Quarter and the famous 17th century walls.

Guildhall Derry Sitting within reach of our famous 400-year-old Walls is one of the City’s most recognisable - and arguably one of the most stunning - landmarks, the Guildhall. It has been in the heart of city life since 1887 and the auburn brick building is the anchor for the buzzing Guildhall Square.

The Guildhall’s most arresting feature is its collection of stunning stained-glass windows. Donated by London Companies, they represent everything from fishmongers to musicians. Recognise the Guildhall Clock? It was modelled on London’s Big Ben.

The Museum of Free Derry – a brand new, award winning purpose built museum has an archive of over 25,000 individual items relating to this period in the city’s history. Most items with immense historical significance were donated by local residents.
