Waterford & the Emerald Isle Explorer

 

B&Q colour charts have nothing on the place that inspired Johnny Cash to write “40 Shades of Green”. 

Welcome to the home of the oldest city in the Emerald Isle, where culture meets ‘craic’, which holds a longstanding glass legacy and even with its modern twist, you can experience 1000 years of history in 1000 steps.  There is more than enough to see and do on this fantastic five-day tour to Waterford, which includes a trip to the world-renowned Waterford Crystal factory where you’ll be able to observe the phenomenal process from start to finish.  Also included is a trip to the locally referred ‘real capital of Ireland’, Cork; steadily rebuilding and reinventing itself, Cork has retained all of its charm and traditional elements combining with the new and cosmopolitan additions which makes it a lively and proudly local place to visit.
