Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Following our pick-ups this morning we’ll proceed south moving onto the N1. We’ll travel to the Applegreen Services near Castle Bellingham where we will have a comfort break. (Euros) Refreshed we’ll continue our journey and move on to the N52 which will take us into the county of Westmeath and out to Mullingar.

Mullingar is in one of the most scenic parts of the country, surrounded by rolling pastures and beautiful loughs. We will have free time to explore our host town of mullingar. We’ll leave Mullingar around 16:00hrs to travel the short distance to our hotel which is located on the outskirts of Mullingar. It is stunningly situated in its own grounds overlooking Lough Ennell. A beautiful location to unwind and enjoy some Irish hospitality. Our estimated time of arrival at the hotel will be 16:15hrs.

Day 2

Depart Hotel 10:00hrs

Our excursion today will take us a little further south crossing the county border into County Offlay. Here we will visit one of the largest most beautiful & award winning gardens in the country at Birr Castle. This is not only a castle and garden with rare trees & flowers, but a science centre which reveals the wonders of early photography, engineering and astronomy – well worth a visit. (Admission included in price). No trip to the gardens would be complete without visiting the Gift Shop or Courtyard Café. (not included in price)

Day 3

Depart Hotel 10:00hrs

Today we’ll again be crossing the county border, this time into the County of Laois. We will be visiting the well established Gash Gardens, near Castletown. (Admission included) Although it is still quite early in the season for colour there is plenty for the visitor to experience. It is packed with interesting and unusual plants to inspire both the keen gardener and the novice. A tranquil place for a self guided tour with seats

to sit, rest or just to savour the moment. A visit to the plant nursery to conclude your experience may tempt you to take home a small memento.

Day 4

Depart Hotel 10:30hrs
Time to say our good-byes as we retrace our journey back along the N52, up to the Applegreen Service area where we’ll have comfort stop. Refreshed we’ll continue our journey and drop-off passengers in Newry, before moving on to Banbridge. We’ll have an afternoon comfort stop at the Boulevard (Outlet Centre) from where  any Banbridge passengers may depart. And then it’s time for the final stretch of our journey back to all drop off points.
