08:00 – 10:00 Dublin and Carrick-On-Shannon

We will leave Dublin heading to Carrick-on-Shannon, one of Ireland’s hidden gems. From its rugged coastline to the inland rivers and lakes overlooked by numerous mountains it is stunningly beautiful.

Leitrim is a place to turn back time and experience traditional Irish hospitality.

We will spend 40 mins there as free time and you will be able to walk the city center to have a good overlook and enjoy little coffee shops and the great views of the river Shannon.

10:40-11:40 Carrick on Shannon – Strandhill beach

At 11:40 approx will arrive at Strandhill Beach, a vibrant seaside village and holiday resort. It is an area of great natural beauty located 7 miles west of Sligo town with panoramic views of Knocknarea and Benbulben.

With its wild Atlantic waves, it’s also a very popular spot for surfers throughout the year. It is said that it is one of the best places in Europe to surf!

We will enjoy the scenery for an hour and then head to Sligo City.

12:40 – 13:00 Sligo

We will have 2 hours to eat lunch and free time do some tourism in Sligo. Sligo – in Irish, Sligeach – means ‘place of shells’. From the myths and legends of ancient Ireland to the poetry of W.B Yeats and the music of Coleman, Westlife and Dervish, Sligo’s cultural and literary heritage is world famous and actively celebrated.

Ruined medieval Sligo Abbey has carved tombs and a 15th-century altar.

Sligo County Museum displays memorabilia of local poet W.B. Yeats, paintings and Stone Age artefacts. The Model is a contemporary arts centre featuring works by 20th-century Irish artists.

The Yeats Memorial Building is a literary centre with a library and art exhibitions. A bronze statue of Yeats, engraved with his words, stands nearby. The village of Drumcliffe is home to medieval monastic ruins and Yeats’s grave.

15:00 – 15:15 Sligo – The Devil’s Chimney Waterfall

Devil’s Chimney Waterfall – in Irish,‘Sruth in Aghaidh An Aird’ – lies on the Sligo/Leitrim border in the Glencar valley, close to its more famous neighbour Glencar waterfall which we will also visit.

At 150 m, the Devil’s Chimney,  is listed on the World Waterfall database as Ireland’s Tallest Waterfall. Its name in Irish means stream against the height and reflects the observed phenomena that during certain weather conditions (when the wind blows from the South) the waterfall is blown upward and back over the cliff from which it falls. Due to this it has become known as the devil’s chimney.

The waterfall does not flow during periods of dry weather; but it is particularly spectacular during or after periods of heavy rainfall. So a perfect off-season location to visit.

We will walk about 45 minutes to the viewpoint where we can admire the waterfall and the landscape. At 16:15 we will meet again at the pick-up point to go to the Glencar waterfall.

16:15-16.30 Glencar Waterfall

Glencar Waterfall is situated near Glencar Lake. It is particularly impressive after rain and can be viewed from a lovely wooded walk. There are more waterfalls visible from the road, although none is quite as romantic as this one. W.B. Yeats used to visit the waterfall when he was young and not surprisingly found it inspirational. He wrote about the fairies and changelings of Irish folklore in his poem, The Stolen Child.

The facilities on site include a car park, picnic area, public toilets, playground, tea room and Tourist Information Point.

17.00-20:00 Dublin

We will meet at 5pm in the Parking Car to come back to Dublin. We will do a quick stop of 15 mins in the middle to use the bathrooms if necessary.

On the way back you will be able to relax comfortably and enjoy a film.
