6 Day Ireland Northern Delights
Starting in Dublin, this loop around the North of Ireland is big on attractions, so you can experience ancient history, the famous local Craic and the colourful cities of Dublin, Belfast, Londonderry and Galway. It's Insider moments like… hearing Yeats' poetry in the place he spent many summers, recited by expert Damien as his wife, Paula, serves up a lunch she's created from the produce of their home near the shore of Lough Gill in Sligo.
