Beginning a new day of sights and adventures, you leave Bangor and set out along the Ards Peninsula. At Portaferry, we set off on the picturesque ferry across the “Narrows” of Strangford Loch, where you have ample time for photos, whilst taking in the sights, sounds and scents of the loch.

Then it’s off to Castle Ward, the location for Winterfell from Game of Thrones. You have the opportunity to discover where the famed and fictional Starks made their dwelling, and what living conditions would have been like for the real residents. From here, you follow in the holy footsteps of St Patrick through his historic, beautiful country. You will have time for lunch here and perhaps a visit to Down Cathedral in Downpatrick or the St Patrick’s centre.

Then it’s a stunning, winding drive into the Mourne Mountains, where you’ll stand in awe amongst the towering granitepeaks. From here we have a final stop at the shores of Carlingford Loch, before arriving in Dublin around 19.00.
