Crystal Clear Coasts & Celtic Castles

Our fantastic Pembrokeshire and County Wexford twin centre tour is a great way to experience the stunning coasts and medieval castles of two contrasting waterfront destinations with fascinating attractions to explore.
PACKAGED ITINERARY
Day 1 Arrival in South Wales
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Pembroke Castle
Today, we enjoy a guided tour of enormous Pembroke Castle, mighty fortress and birthplace of Henry VII, a statue of whom was recently erected nearby. During our tour we discover the history behind the castle and how it was extensively restored during Victorian times. We enjoy lunch at leisure at the castle or in the walled town of Pembroke which
surrounds the castle.

Day 3 Tenby
We spend this morning at leisure in the picture postcard seaside resort of Tenby, exploring its medieval streets, picturesque harbour and golden sands, perhaps taking a short boat trip to Caldey Island.

Day 4 St. David’s & Ferry to Ireland
This morning, we visit charming St David’s, the smallest city in Britain. Stroll around its little shops and visit serene St. David’s Cathedral. We then head for Fishguard where we board our ferry for the afternoon sailing to Rosslare. From Rosslare we travel the short distance to the Talbot Hotel Wexford, our base for the next three nights.

Day 5 Kilkenny & Kilkenny Castle
We spend today in medieval Kilkenny. We visit Kilkenny Castle, built by the Normans in the 12th century and one of the most magnificent castles in Ireland. We then enjoy the rest of the day at leisure in this compact medieval city whose attractions include Smithwick’s Experience and St Canice’s Cathedral.

Day 6 Waterford
Today we head for Ireland’s oldest city, Waterford, where we visit the famous House of Waterford Crystal and enjoy a guided tour of the factory. Waterford offers many attractions to discover including the nearby Waterford Medieval Treasures. In the afternoon we return to Wexford with its small boutiques, cobbled streets and traditional pubs, exploring the town at leisure.

Day 7 Departure
After an early breakfast, we take the morning ferry from Rosslare to Fishguard and begin our journey home.
Please note: In order to comply with current daily driving, break and rest requirements two drivers will be required for this tour. However we are happy to amend the itinerary to allow for a driver’s day off or to arrange local hire if you require it.
