Showcasing a plethora of Irish highlights through visits to both of the Emerald Isle’s enchanting capital cities, this five-night break will create lasting memories.

Olsen there’s a day of unforgettable scenic cruising to experience too.

During two days in Dublin, you have the chance to uncover the many delights of the Republic of Ireland’s vibrant capital. A guided walking tour is a great way to take in the fine architecture and famous sights of the city, including the beautiful St Patrick’s Cathedral and Dublin Castle, while a visit to Trinity College presents an opportunity to view the Book of Kells – a hand-illuminated manuscript of the Gospels considered Ireland’s greatest cultural treasure.

In between your exploration of Ireland’s capitals, a day-long diversion to breathtaking Scottish Hebrides includes a scenic navigation of the Sound of Mull, passing by the iconic, colourful harbour of Tobermory Bay – one of Scotland’s most photographed scenes – and the 13th century Duart Castle, as well as a sail by the remarkable basalt columns of Fingal’s Cave. Lastly, you arrive in Northern Ireland’s attraction-packed capital, Belfast. Highlights here include Titanic Belfast, where fascinating exhibits detail the city’s connections to the infamous ocean liner, Titanic; the historic steamship SS Nomadic; and the Renaissance-style City Hall. Belfast is also your gateway to the fascinating Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site. Taking a tour to see the geological wonders of Giant’s Causeway in all their glory is an unforgettable way end to your time in Ireland.

Highlights of this cruise:

Liverpool, UK
Liverpool - the home of The Beatles - is one of Britain's most iconic and interesting cities.

Dublin, Ireland
The Republic of Ireland's celebrated capital city, Dublin, wears its past with pride, and is a magnet for visitors seeking unabashed joie de vivre. Literature, theatre, the arts and the famous Irish 'craic' play an important role in Dublin's unique cultural experience.

A welcoming city, renowned for its warm atmosphere and special character, Dublin is one of Europe’s must-visit cities. The city’s vibrancy, nightlife and many tourist attractions, ensure a trip to this historic capital is always full of excitement.

Discover a crop of museums and monuments that highlight the vast history of Ireland, alongside galleries and exhibitions that reflect its rich culture. Highlights include the impressive St. Patrick’s Cathedral – Ireland’s largest church – Dublin Castle, the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the National Museum of Ireland. All are easily accessible.

Cruising Fingal's Cave, United Kingdom
Similar to the famous, UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, Fingal’s Cave is a beautiful basalt sea-cave with distinctive ‘columns’ and a remarkable symmetry that looks incredible as you cruise past.

Often, the cliffs, ledges and grassy slopes are smothered with native seabirds, including guillemots, razorbills, puffins and more, so it’s the perfect place to enjoy a little birdwatching. Just make sure you have your binoculars to hand!

Cruising Sound of Mull, United Kingdom
Flowing between the Isle of Mull and the shores of Scotland, the Sound of Mull is a beautiful stretch of water that forms part of the Atlantic Ocean. As you sail through the sound on your Fred. Olsen cruise ship you'll see some stunning natural landscapes and will truly appreciate the beauty of the British Isles.

Cruising Tobermory Bay, United Kingdom
Situated in the north east corner of the picturesque Isle of Mull, Tobermory Bay is a beautiful stretch of water sheltered by steep cliffs and tall hills. From the ship you'll enjoy views of Tobermory harbour's famous colourful watefront, which you may recognise from the popular children's television series Balamory.

Cruising past Duart Castle, United Kingdom
Duart Castle dates back to the 13th century and is one of the most historic, important and prettiest castles in the Highlands. Set amongst a back drop of beautiful valleys, the castle looks impressive from any angle, especially from the water - a sight you'll get to see during your scenic cruise here.

Belfast, United Kingdom
From beautiful coastlines to a fascinating industrial heritage, Northern Ireland’s capital, Belfast, is a modern, vibrant and stylish city. Famous for being the birthplace of the RMS Titanic, Belfast offers visitors the chance to visit the Harland and Wolff shipyard and the fascinating Titanic Experience. Only in Belfast can the Titanic story be traced to its source, and the excitement of an era when the city was at the height of its powers relived.

Close to Queen’s University lie the fascinating Botanical Gardens, established for over 180 years. The unique Palm House was one of the world’s first cast-iron glass-houses and displays a wide range of tropical plants, ranging from bananas to rubber. Alongside, the Renaissance-styled Ulster Museum tells Ireland’s 9,000-year history through art, ceramics, costume, and prehistoric archaeology. To the city’s northern edge is the impressive Belfast Castle, offering wonderful views of the city as it stands 120m above the Irish Sea.
