Clonmacnoise and Fore Abbey

Culture and History tour in Dublin

Tour Price : €250 Duration : 6 hours Languages: English

This cultural and historical tour from Dublin offers the chance to visit two of Ireland's most interesting religious sites as well as the option of visiting the wonderful gardens and hunting lodge of Belvedere House or one of the oldest distilleries in the world Lockes in Kilbeggan.

On pick up from Dublin we first travel to Clonmacnoise one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland founded by saint Ciaran in the 6th. century, and with its beautiful setting by the river Shannon and magnificent high crosses is a must see in this area. Following our stop we journey across country to Fore Abbey which set between two hills is probably one of Ireland's least known and visited religious sites and in my opinion one of its best secrets.

After Fore we have the option of visiting Belvedere House of the famed Jealous Wall and wonderful gardens or on to Lockes distillery where after a tour to see how whiskey is produced there is the chance to sample some of the famous product. The order of this Tour may be reversed to suit opening times at different times of the year
