Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Following our pick-ups this morning we will continue our journey moving on to the M1 towards the Dungannon Services where we’ll have a morning comfort break. Restaurant and comfort facilities readily available. From Dungannon we’ll continue our journey on to the ‘shopping capital of the north- west’ Sligo town where we will have a lunch time break. Free time. Refreshed and ready to move on, the next stage of our journey will take us through the County of Sligo and into Mayo where we will proceed directly to the CASTLECOURT Hotel for an estimated time of arrival of 16:30 hrs.  A welcome cuppa awaits us, as our luggage is brought in from the coach. Time to relax before heading off to our room to get ready for our first evening meal. This break particularly caters for bowls enthusiasts, as the hotel is hosting a Large Bowls (2), Short Mat competition over 4 days followed by Live Music & Dancing each night.
