Visit the Belleek pottery factory

Explore the market town of Belleek, and meet the craftspeople of its famed porcelain factory

Promoting over 160 years of craftsmanship, Belleek Pottery – set within a neo-Georgian building in the quaint village of Belleek in County Fermanagh on the banks of the River Erne – is home to Ireland's oldest working fine china pottery. Since 1857, Belleek Pottery has held a very special place in Ireland's cultural and commercial heritage for creating delicate, hand-painted, iridescent porcelain art now famous around the world. Get an inside look at the process and the artisans that produce more than 100,000 pieces of pottery annually – passing through 16 pairs of hands – on your tour of the Belleek factory and museum.

Belfast's Titanic exhibit and a Titanic dinner

Belfast's award-winning Titanic museum... followed by a 9-course Titanic tasting dinner

Learn insider stories behind Titanic, designed to be one of the finest ships ever to grace the seas, on your visit to Titanic Belfast, built on the site of the former Queen's Island shipyards that produced the ill-fated liner. J. Bruce Ismay, Chairman of the White Star Line, asked Lord Pirrie of shipbuilders Harland & Wolff to construct "a stable ship that will not disturb the sediment in the fine wines" they were drinking together at a planning meeting. And while Titanic was, according to her builders, "as nearly as perfect as human brains can make her," she proved no match for nature. Discover more in modern-day galleries that bring the legendary ship back to life... and enjoy a 9-course Titanic tasting dinner in the Great Room of The Merchant Hotel.

Aghadoe Heights Hotel & Spa

Nights 10 and 11

In the heart of the kingdom

One of the distinguishing features of Aghadoe Heights Hotel & Spa – occupying a mystical setting near the Paps Mountains, steeped in ancient Celtic history – is its unsurpassed level of personal service, combining the luxury of contemporary comfort with the warmth of Irish hospitality. Its heritage is a love of life, and its focus is sharing it. Welcome to the heart of the kingdom.

I think gaining a deeper understanding of the history of Ireland, both ancient and modern, is what will stay with me longest.

Two weeks with a small group of 24. Received ample support from tour guide and bus driver, who managed to maneuver narrow two lane roads despite bicycles, others buses and steep embankments. Interesting variety of activities and all the food you could possibly eat. Weather was excellent and showed Ireland off at her best.

Most Memorable Moment:

A visit to Kylemore Abbey was the most memorable, among many.

The trip was wonderful. Not only did we see the highlights of each city we visited, but we experienced the Irish people, their history, and how they live. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and gave us more information than I can ever possibly remember!

Most Memorable Moment:

Every day provided a memorable moment, but I think for me there were two that I would single out. I loved the sheep herding demonstration and the fact that I was able to do falconry. Those special experiences made the trip extra-special as I know I would not be able to see or do those things without being with Tauck!
