The famous “ship that couldn’t be sunk,” the Titanic, proved everyone wrong on April 14th 100 years ago. If you’re a Titanic enthusiast, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the place where it all began on the Niagara College Explorers’ Club’s trip to Ireland this May!
The 10-day Celtic Spirit – Mystical Ireland tour will visit Belfast, where the Titanic was built and launched, and the city is hosting numerous tours and interactive museum exhibits about the ship and the time period. The customized tour begins with three days in Dublin, then visits Northern Ireland and the west coast.
Highlights include: the Guiness Storehouse, the Hill of Tara, Newgrange, Belfast and its history, the Giant’s Causeway, Old Bushmills Distillery, a visit to a traditional Donegal weaver, the Aran Islands, Croagh Patrick holy mountain, Kylemore Abbey, Dun Aengus, the Cliffs of Moher, the Rock of Cashel and Bunratty Castle.
The trip runs from May 15 to 26, 2012, and the final Information Session takes place on February 11th, with bookings available until the end of February.
