We depart from your chosen collection point on one of our luxury coaches with an on-board experienced guide. We head West, stopping at the hotel in Mullingar for our morning tea / coffee and scones.
Departing from The Quays in the shadow of Athlone Castle you will travel along the longest river in either Ireland or Great Britain and discover the unspoiled beauty and wildlife of the Shannon. Listen to the river’s history, enjoy the expanse and tranquility of Lough Ree and marvel at the island, monastic settlements before heading back to The Quays.
Athlone is a thriving historical town. Athlone Castle commands the traditional gateway to the West, and its recently renovated Visitor’s Centre is well worth a visit. Beside the castle, you will find Seán’s Bar – the oldest bar in Ireland! You can ‘shop till you drop’ in Athlone. Two shopping centres, several exclusive boutiques and numerous restaurants and cafés will provide ample scope for browsing, shopping and relaxing.
After a great day out, you will depart for your evening meal. Here you will enjoy a 4 course meal before returning home.
Entertainment can be added to this tour for a supplement of €250.Less
