Day 2

Inishowen Peninsula & Doagh Famine Village

We meet our guide for the day at Grianan of Aileach to gain an insight into the

history of Grianan Fort - 800 feet above sea level, it has breath-taking views. We

continue to Dunree Fort Heritage Museum, boasting one of the best collections of

coast artillery guns in the world. We then travel via Mamore Gap where we learn

about St Eigne's well before continuing through the scenic Urris landscape. We stop

for a lunch of soup and sandwiches at the beautiful Glen House Rose Tearoom. From

here, we have the option of walking to one of Inishowen's most spectacular natural

attractions, the Glenevin Waterfall. Our next stop is the Doagh Famine Village for

a guided tour. The village is an outdoor museum telling the story of a family and

community living on the edge and surviving from the famine of the 1840s to the

present time. After, we make our way to the pretty village of Carndonagh and view

the Donagh Cross (or St Patrick Cross), dating back to the 7th century, before heading

to Malin Head, Ireland's most northerly point, at the top of both Ireland and the

Inishowen Peninsula.

Day 3 Glenveagh National Park

Today, we make our way to the spectacular Glenveagh National Park. We visit

the award-winning Visitor Centre and marvel at the beautiful Glenveagh Castle,

positioned beautifully on the edge of Lough Veagh. We can explore the castle's

charming courtyards, Walled Garden, Pleasure Grounds and Woodland Gardens.

Day 4

Magilligan Point, Giant's Causeway & Derry

We begin the day with a stunning ferry journey from Greencastle to Magilligan

Point at the mouth of Lough Foyle and see where the Wild Atlantic Way joins up with

the Causeway Coast. We then head to the extraordinary Giant's Causeway. Flanked

by the wild North Atlantic Ocean on one side and a landscape of dramatic cliffs on

the other, we can marvel at the wonder of nature, before visiting the award-winning

Visitor Centre. We spend the rest of the day at leisure in the fabulous walled city

of Derry.
