Panoramic city tour with a local guide. The town was inhabited as early as the Bronze Age, and Iron Age remains can be seen in the hills around the town. Belfast grew as a settlement during the 17th-20th centuries and flourished as an industrial and commercial centre. Northern Ireland is fast becoming one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations. Belfast has erased its negative image from the 1990s, after the end of the conflict between republicans and royalists, and can reveal its true face, its historical and cultural attractions, and many other attractions for tourists. This relatively compact city is divided into four parts: the Cathedral Quarter, the Queen's Quarter, the Gaeltacht and the Titanic Quarter, each of which offers a large number of Victorian architectural attractions. One of the most important things about Belfast is the city's maritime history. The Titanic, tragically sunk in 1919, was built here and its history can be seen in the specially built museum.

tours ireland Breakfast. In the morning we return to the heart of Ireland, passing through the counties of Westmeath and Offaly, where we will visit two important Irish distilleries.

First we will visit the delightful 18th century Kilbegan distillery, situated in the small village of Kilbegan in a picturesque setting overlooking the River Brosna. Founded in 1750, this is one of the oldest distilleries on the island. Closed in the 1950s for a few decades, it is now reopened and distilling some of Ireland's finest whiskies. In fact, the distillery's claim to fame is that it is the oldest continuously licensed distillery in the world. We'll visit the museum and a working distillery and admire their still-functioning waterwheel dating back to the 1800s, as well as what is believed to be the oldest working whiskey pot still in existence. We'll continue on to the settlement of Tullamore, and on the way we'll see the ruins of Durrow Abbey, an early 6th century Christian temple. At noon we will visit the Tullamore Dew Heritage Centre, located in the historic distillery of D. Е. Williams Tullamore, dating back to the 1800's.
