GOLD Irish Adventure

GOLD Irish Adventure

From friendly Ballyshannon to the Giant's Causeway and its legends, there is lovely scenery at every turn. Donegal Bay is stunning and youcan step back in time at the folk village before climbing through the 900' Glengash Pass.

Donegal is in the North West corner of Ireland,

a long deeply indented coast that is still relatively unspoilt.

Our tour will be centred in the pretty little town of

Ballyshannon in a region where many old customs and

traditions live on and the Irish language can still be heard.

At the northernmost tip of Ireland we will see the uncanny

rock formations which legend tells was once the

'Giants Causeway' linking Scotland and Ireland.
