An early morning start in the bus into the green countryside, first stop at the legendary Hill of Tara, seat of the High Kings of Ireland. Once a thriving community, now just mounds and standing stones. Lunch stop at Carrick-on-Shannon, at the head of the Shannon River. Past Lough Key to Sligo, our overnight stop.
We had an afternoon excursion out to Parkes Castle on Lough Gill , once a Plantation Estate of the early 17th Century. On the way home we had a stop at a Holy Well.
