Walk in the footsteps of the men who built RMS Titanic, the world’s most famous ship, in Belfast’s historic shipyard.

Day 2 – October 31, Londonderry

9.30 City tour walking Including one of the most haunted place in Ireland: Bishop Higgins’ Grave. “Don’t disturb the dead – unless you want to be haunted. Such was the case at St Columb’s Cathedral when renovations in 1867 disturbed the grave of former bishop William Higgins. His tomb was moved inside the cathedral and that’s when things started to get weird. Workers began hearing footsteps in the locked gallery, apparitions appeared in photographs and the organ would sound without a soul near it.”

Derry~Londonderry is the only completely walled city in Ireland and one of the finest in Europe, and the best way to enjoy these stony ramparts is to go slow. Take a walking tour and hear the fascinating stories about brutal 17th century sieges, starving citizens and fearsome roaring cannons. Then finish off by crossing the Peace Bridge to Ebrington Square and the Walled City Brewery, where you can raise a glass to this unique city.

Your Halloween Tours in Ireland continue with The Guildhall, a red-brick, neo-Gothic wonder, on the edge of a picturesque square that’s perfect for a stroll or a snack. Enter these red-brick walls, and if you’re really lucky, you might catch someone playing on the massive organ; let the music move through you as you admire the iconic building’s stunning stained-glass windows.

To get a look at the city from the water, why not take a walking tour and see the iconic Peace Bridge? Since it opened in 2011, this bridge has won a number of awards and is a vital link between the two sides of the River Foyle.

Home to the first ever witch trial in Ireland, Kilkenny is no stranger to the supernatural. During a great flood in 1763, a crowd was crossing John’s Bridge when it collapsed, drowning 16 people in the swollen Nore below. Ever since, locals and visitors tell of eerie ghostly figures in the river, scratching at the banks, leaning where the current structure stands and rising on the morning mist. Visit Kilkeni’s Castle Kitchen Tea-Room, and Medieval Room.Next on your Halloween Tours in Ireland, drive to Blarney Castle and visit with the Stone of eloquence. For over 200 years, world statesmen, literary giants, and legends of the silver screen have joined the millions of pilgrims climbing the steps to kiss the Blarney Stone and gain the gift of eloquence. Its powers are unquestioned but its story still creates debate. Arrive in Killarney. Dinner at the hotel on individual account.

You can study the works and lives of the Skellig monks of the early Christian period, their activities, their endurance and their dedication in gaining a foothold on a tiny, inhospitable, offshore island and creating a community there that survived for some 600 years. In The Skellig Experience’s 80-seat auditorium, through a 14-minute film presentation you can follow the footsteps of those Skellig monks, and wonder at the legacy of architecture that they left behind. The Skellig Experience Centre also offers – again through artefacts and realistic re-creations – an experience of Skellig lighthouse – its history – its light keepers and its service to mariners since the 1820’s.Break for a stroll around Sneem and at Moll’s Gap.

Day 8 – November 06, Shannon – Dublin

It is Ireland’s most visited tourist attraction and when you visit you will understand why. Driving toward Dublin.On the way stop and visit Ireland most haunted castle, Leap Castle. The Bloody Chapel Behind the medieval walls of Leap Castle are stories of murder and betrayal. Like in 1532, when two ambitious brothers vied for the family seat. One, a priest, was giving mass in the castle chapel when his brother ran in and plunged a sword into his heart on the altar of what’s now called the Bloody Chapel. And then there are the skeletons discovered on a secret spike. Late arrival to Dublin, around 20.00.
