We pick you up in Terminal 2 Dublin airport at 9am on the morning of Sept 21st and bring you to our first stop...Belvedere House. This house has a rich but sad history and you will learn all about it, you will also see and hear about "the Jealous Wall".
We then go further North West to Strokestown house where you will see a famine museum. This was one of the Grand Houses owned by the gentry and many stories were told about the owners of this house and the famine times in Ireland.
We then make our way to our first Castle accommodation in Sligo and that is called Markree Castle.
