Overlooked for too long, Northern Ireland is a country of stunning scenery, from the Antrim Coast's Giant's Causeway to the gentle waters of Lough Neagh, a coastal 'Great Railway Journey' and the majestic Mountains of Mourne.
From Dublin's 'fair city' to the delights of Donegal, Londonderry, Belfast and back to Dublin, this tour of the north of Ireland takes in the Wild Atlantic Way, Europe's highest sea-cliffs, the iconic Giant's Causeway and the Titanic Exhibition on a journey combining wild, natural beauty at the edge of Europe with confident, cultural cities.
39 years ago Michael Palin's first 'Great Railway Journey' to Kyle of Lochalsh prompted Dave to organize his first tour. We thought now would be a great time to recreate Palin's second 'Great Railway Journey' from 'Derry to Kerry'! Experience the fabulous line from Coleraine to Londonderry and the scenic East Coast Line from Dublin to Wexford, enjoy the contrasts of Belfast, Dublin, Waterford and Tralee, and wonder at the natural beauty of the Causeway Coast and the Ring of Kerry!
