Explore beautiful Ireland on a charming 7-night city break on board Adonia
Adonia is the perfect companion for this 7-night cruise to Ireland. After some time to get to know Adonia and your fellow travellers – revelling in the intimate cruising camaraderie that is exclusive to small ships - you’ll arrive in Cobh.
Pronounced ‘Cove’, Cobh is the cruise port of Ireland’s second biggest city, Cork, and boasts one of Europe’s largest natural harbours. Poignantly, it was also the final departure point of the ill-fated Titanic. With its colourful seafront houses, the town has the feel of a true seaside resort, dominated by a cathedral offering fabulous views over the bay. Nearby Cork City is home to fascinating shops and markets while traditional Irish music can be heard in many of the historic pubs and bars which populate the city centre.
Your second stop will give you two full days to explore the dynamic Irish capital; Dublin. Grafton Street is a shopper’s paradise with a stop at Bewley’s historic coffee house a must for people-watching. The city’s literary heritage is celebrated at the National Library with works of famous Irish writers such as Beckett, Joyce, Swift and Yeats collected together.
Dublin is renowned as a fun-loving city and its pubs and bars are world-renowned. From the famous Temple Bar to more out of the way pubs, you’re sure to find a welcoming face and Guinness on tap - a visit to the Guinness Storehouse and Brewery provides an insight into the history of Ireland’s favourite tipple.
After a few days enjoying the famous Irish ‘craic’, you’ll head back to Southampton, with a couple more precious days to explore the wonderful Adonia.
