Enjoy the sophistication of Dublin and Belfast and the peaceful ambiance of small villages. Have lunch with a family who run a working dairy farm. Experience the award-winning, magnificent Titanic Belfast interactive museum and savor a special 9-course tasting dinner inspired by the great ship's menu in the city where it was built, Belfast.

Belfast's Titanic exhibit and a Titanic dinner

Belfast's award-winning Titanic museum... followed by a 9-course Titanic tasting dinner

Learn insider stories behind Titanic, designed to be one of the finest ships ever to grace the seas, on your visit to Titanic Belfast, built on the site of the former Queen’s Island shipyards that produced the ill-fated liner. J. Bruce Ismay, Chairman of the White Star Line, asked Lord Pirrie of shipbuilders Harland & Wolff to construct “a stable ship that will not disturb the sediment in the fine wines” they were drinking together at a planning meeting. And while Titanic was, according to her builders, “as nearly as perfect as human brains can make her,” she proved no match for nature. Discover more in modern-day galleries that bring the legendary ship back to life... and enjoy a 9-course Titanic tasting dinner in the Great Room of The Merchant Hotel.

Visit the Belleek pottery factory

Explore the market town of Belleek, and meet the craftspeople of its famed porcelain factory

Promoting over 160 years of craftsmanship, Belleek Pottery – set within a neo-Georgian building in the quaint village of Belleek in County Fermanagh on the banks of the River Erne – is home to Ireland's oldest working fine china pottery. Since 1857, Belleek Pottery has held a very special place in Ireland's cultural and commercial heritage for creating delicate, hand-painted, iridescent porcelain art now famous around the world. Get an inside look at the process and the artisans that produce more than 100,000 pieces of pottery annually – passing through 16 pairs of hands – on your tour of the Belleek factory and museum.

Aghadoe Heights Hotel & Spa

Nights 10 and 11

In the heart of the kingdom

One of the distinguishing features of Aghadoe Heights Hotel & Spa – occupying a mystical setting near the Paps Mountains, steeped in ancient Celtic history – is its unsurpassed level of personal service, combining the luxury of contemporary comfort with the warmth of Irish hospitality. Its heritage is a love of life, and its focus is sharing it. Welcome to the heart of the kingdom.

I think gaining a deeper understanding of the history of Ireland, both ancient and modern, is what will stay with me longest.
