  • Day 1 - Dublin - Hillsborough - Belfast

    After meeting the group in Dublin’s fair city, we’ll board the mini-coach and set a course for our very first stop: the grand Hillsborough Castle and Gardens (Her Majesty The Queen’s official Northern Irish residence). We’ll have the chance to wander the estate’s magnificent rooms on a guided tour before we move on to the Hilden Brewery – the oldest independent brewery in Ireland – this afternoon. Here, we’ll receive an insight into how the brewery’s craft beer is made on a guided tour, before having the chance to taste it for ourselves (bottoms up!). Belfast, Northern Ireland’s capital, will be our final stop of the day – and it’s here that we’ll tuck into a welcome dinner together. Accommodation: Ten Square Hotel (or similar)
