Legends of Ireland & Scotland
The western fringes of Europe are where the magic still lives, in ancient legends, language and songs sung in lilting Gaelic accents. Walk in the footsteps of ghosts and giants, heroes and graverobbers, and keep an eye out for the elusive leprechaun.
Ireland’s rocky coastline, rolling green hills, and ruined castles are impossibly romantic, and it’s no wonder that some of the world’s greatest storytellers hailed from the Emerald Isle. Shannon and Kinsale are two of the prettiest spots in the whole country while spending time in Dublin lets you enjoy the nightlife of Temple Bar and a glass or two of Ireland’s most famous export: Guinness.
After Ireland, Scotland beckons, with its rugged moors and mountains, swift streams and purple heather. Cruise the lochs (where monsters may or may not still swim in the depths!) before arriving in the historic and beautiful capital city of Edinburgh.
