about this trip

Drive along the banks of Loch Lomond towards Glasgow before taking a ferry to Belfast in Ireland. Explore the Emerald Isle, and some of the country’s beautiful and unspoilt countryside; from Belfast and the Titanic Experience to scenic County Kerry to the lunar-like Burren region and the wilds of Connemara, and spending time in the arty city of Galway to one of the liveliest cities in Europe, Dublin, where the tour ends.
