Very diverse and as busy or quiet as you like
Holiday August 2012 - this was my first Shearings holiday and I wasn't sure what to expect, though my mother had been with them before. It was very well organised; stress free changes throughout. All the hotels were good re accommodation and food. Some of the other passengers had grumblings about the bedrooms in the stop over hotels in Wales but Mum and me were very lucky and were in a refurbished room, though it was very small with little room for two suitcases.As we were worried about the weather (though we were very lucky and hardly had any of the forecast rain), we elected to go on the optional city tours of Derry, Belfast and Dublin. I would recommend these to everyone. You still get some time in the cities to 'do your own thing', but you would never get to see all we did. I would particularly recommend the Belfast tour.All in all a good holiday and it has tempted me to book with Shearings again next year !
