Welcome to our Northern Gem! We meet in Galway where you gather with your fellow adventurers. You will then begin an adventure that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Without delay, you experience one of Ireland’s natural wonders - Connemara. The contrasting scenery of mountains, lakes and the Atlantic Ocean make Connemara one of the most scenic areas in Ireland. You have two days to explore this area. We then move north along the West coast of Ireland stopping in Sligo before heading for Donegal - home to Ireland’s highest sea cliffs, Slieve League. Donegal is Ireland's hidden gem and personally one of my favorite places. We spend a few days here to explore the region.
From Donegal, you travel into "the Six Counties". This is a historic area with a turbulent past. No need to worry though, there has been peace in Northern Ireland for 18 years. You will visit Derry city and walk the walls before visiting Dunluce Castle and the scenic area of Ballintoy. Ballintoy was used as the location of Lordsport in the Isle of Pyke in the second season of television series, Game of Thrones.
Prepare for fantastic scenery as we hike from Ballintoy to the Giants Causeway. The walk itself is filled with breathtaking scenery which leads to the unique experience of the Giants Causeway. This is a UNESCO world heritage site made of 40,000 basalt columns formed 60 million years ago. View this unique geological phenomenon and learn the local legends.
