DERRY - DRUMCLIFF ABBEY - SLIGO - GALWAY
Begin your third and final day of this memorable tour with a hearty breakfast and a fantastic, comprehensive walking tour of Derry with an expert, local guide. You'll learn the history behind the city and its official name of Londonderry. The city's charming ancient streets are the location of some of Northern Ireland's key historic events, including the devastating 'Bloody Sunday' massacre, which took place in 1972 (the event behind U2's hit song 'Sunday, Bloody Sunday'). Finishing up with your walking tour – you'll be taken to the fascinating 'Creevykeel' – an ancient pagan tomb, where you'll learn about the daily rituals of those that inhabited the area during the stone-age. We'll drive through the homeland of one of Ireland's best-loved artistic exports – the poet W.B. Yeats. This region greatly influenced his world-famous poetry and you will have the chance to visit his final resting place at Drumcliff Abbey. Your drive continues into Co. Sligo, where there'll be time to stretch your legs at the world-class Atlantic surfing beach of 'Strandhill'. The final leg of your journey takes you to Galway city. Galway is a vibrant and bohemian city and is deservedly in the running for the title of 'European Capital of Culture 2020'. Enjoy a wander through the charming ancient streets and sample some of the city's famous seafood before making your luxury chauffer transfer back to Dublin city.
