Commentary in English
A vibrant, legendary, and controversial city awaits you. Discover the birthplace of the world-famous Titanic, wander through picturesque villages, take in the breathtaking landscapes, and learn details of the city’s turbulent history with the help of your guide.
As you leave Dublin behind, your first stop is Drogheda—hometown to St. Oliver Plunkett, the last English Catholic martyr. Visit St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church, where Plunkett's enameled head is held today. Continue toward Monasterboice, an early Christian settlement and medieval monastic site with the best-preserved high cross in Ireland, the Muiredach's Cross. Your next stop is a megalithic portal tomb—Proleek Dolmen—that reflects Irish mythology and dates back to the Vikings.
Upon arriving in Belfast, you have the opportunity to wander around the city center, grab some lunch, and people-watch from the pub’s windows before resuming your guided visit of the city. Learn the grim details about the conflict between Catholic and Protestant communities as you gaze at the peace walls and pay a visit to the Titanic’s birthplace.
On your way back to Dublin, your tour briefly stops at the Mourne Mountains, where you can see Mother Nature playing gravity-defying tricks at the gravity hill: Are objects rolling up or down?
