Our first stop in in Omagh which is in the 6 counties, where we visit the Ulster Folk museum, then we go to the world famous Newgrange Megalithic underground passage tombs, before reaching Fitzpatrick's castle which will be our final accommodations for this trip. 

Day 8,

Today is your day to do what you please. There are so many things that you can see and do, so we give you idea's and let you decide what you want to do. There is the hop on -hop off bus that brings you around the city and at any time you can just hop off and visit some great places like The Guinness Store House where you can pull your own pint or if you are into history you can stop off at Killmainham Jail and learn all about our history, or you can stop at Trinity College where you can check out the famous "Book of Kells". We drop you off and we pick you up in the evening and bring you back to Fitzpatricks' Castle. 

Or you can just enjoy the castle for the day an soak it all up before you get ready to return home.

Day 9,
 We bring you back to the airport and say goodbye until the next time you come to Ireland with us.

We have organized music in the  local pubs for our tour groups. These sessions are very welcoming to anyone who would like to sing a song, or dance, or indeed, join with an instrument. 

You will hear, for free, some of the finest musicians in the country.  These musicians have travelled the world with their music, but there's nothing like playing in the local pub with their friends.

We will bring you to all the stunning areas only the locals know.

You will see lakes, mountains, sea shores, forests, holy places, and much more. You will meet the locals who might just tell you some stories about where you are.

Relax and take in the fresh air. Go for a walk, take pictures and soak it all up.

On our travels we will see 11th and 12th century ruins of Castles, Abbeys, underground passage tombs, outdoor altars and famine grave sites.

You will go back in time listening to the history of these places. 

We will also be bringing you to restored castles and modern gravesites. "Oh but why are they bringing me to a gravesite" I can hear you say. Just wait and come with us, you will be amazed at what you see.
