Full day to Belfast: This was the birthplace of the RMS Titanic, which famously struck an iceberg and sunk in 1912. This legacy is recalled in the renovated dockyards’ Titanic quarter. This includes the Titanic Belfast, an aluminium-clad museum reminiscent of a ship’s hull, as well as shipbuilder Harland & Wolff’s drawing offices and the Titanic Slipways, which now host open-air concerts.

Full day: Today we travel south to Castle Ward, the fascinating home of the Ward family since the 16th century, in its stunning location overlooking Strangford Lough. The farmyard at Castle Ward is now famous for being the location of winterfell in the hugely popular TV series Game of Thornes and the `Whispering Wood` can also be found here. Continuing on, we will explore the town of Downpatrick, which is reputed to be the final resting place of St Patrick and the home of St Patrick’s centre. Here you will enjoy some free time in the town, before heading back.

Full day: We will take in the wonderful panoramic views of the Antrim Coast, which is said to be one of the most beautiful coastal drives around. We will also make a stop at the Giants Causeway. The most popular natural attraction in the country and where legend tells of the giant Finn MaCool, who created the causeway to visit his lady love in Scotland.
