In Belfast, Northern Ireland, you will see the birthplace of the fabled Titanic.

Ireland Travel Guide & Cruise Tips

Despite its small size, Ireland is home to beautiful landscapes and centuries of rich Gaelic culture that will come alive as you cruise around this charming country. Castles, ruins, and stunning architecture highlight the human story of the Emerald Isle, while diverse bird species and a sweeping green countryside underline Ireland's abundant natural diversity. 
  • Tour Dublin (the capital city), home to St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Dublin Castle, and a mix of modern & ancient culture.
  • Belfast & Galway and the pristine Connemara district are also scenic stops along many cruises.
  • Visit Cork, a quaint city on the River Lee with a university atmosphere and some excellent traditional Irish pubs.
  • Explore ancient ruins, like the ancient monastery at Glendalough, Dingle, or the volcanic site known as the Giant's Causeway.
  • Go birding in the Aran Islands, where you'll see shocking numbers of diverse endemic birds.
Most tours through Ireland also visit the United Kingdom, where the neighboring countries of England, Scotland, and Wales will delight you with their tradtional atmosphere and noble castles. Some cruises even include journeys through other European countries like Norway, Spain, and Portugal.
