Relax with a day at leisure, or why not join our optional excursion to the old Norse town of Wexford? Wexford was once known as Waesfjord – ‘the harbour of the mud flats’ – and boasts narrow winding streets, a picturesque harbour, and lively pubs and hostelries. The town is situated where the River Slaney enters Wexford Harbour, once a thriving port.

We later continue to New Ross, a town steeped in history, where we will visit the Dunbrody Famine Ship. Actors in period costume narrate the story of the Irish famine emigrants on this authentic reproduction of an 1840's emigrant vessel.

Visit the charming city of Waterford. Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland, first visited by the Vikings in 852 AD. The walled city has retained much of its medieval character together with the graceful buildings from its 18th century expansion.

The parameters of the 10th-century settlement can be clearly identified in The Viking Triangle – the ‘old town’ of the city. Here, you can admire Reginald's Tower, which is the most historic urban medieval monument in Ireland. Other prime examples of beautiful 18th-century architecture include the elegant Chamber of Commerce building, the City Hall and the Bishop's Palace.

This afternoon, we continue to Dublin. The city has plenty to delight even the most familiar visitor. Magnificent Georgian architecture adds drama to every moment. Live entertainments, charming distractions and tempting indulgences await around every corner.

The Riverpark hotel was excellent but the transport and lack of information from the drivers spoilt the holiday. Suffice to say we will not be booking again !
