Day by Day

Day 1 - Monday 6th May - Arrival in Belfast- Transfer to Donegal

Arriving in Belfast International Airport, collect your car rental at the airport and set off to your first destination, just over the border in Donegal. Depending on your flight arrival times there may be the opportunity to stop on route to your hotel this afternoon and we recommend St Patrick’s Cathedral as the perfect introduction to Ireland.

The imposing twin spires of the Cathedral overlook the City from an elevated site. The Cathedral is built on a site known as Tealach na licci (Sandy Hill) where legend has it that Saint Patrick brought a young deer for sanctuary. Catch your breath at the top of the hill, take in the view of our beautiful city and then enter St Patrick’s Cathedral and wonder at the awe-inspiring interior.

This evening, check into the 5 star Lough Eske Castle Hotel.
