Oak Hall Holidays

The Emerald Isle

Ireland is famous for beautiful scenery, and we are pleased to be sailing to the Emerald Isle this autumn. We will be visiting the scenic southern part of Ireland, staying in Waterford and Killarney. Transport for all the excursions is included and there is no overnight travel.

Our evenings together are always a highlight as we meet for a time of singing and a Bible talk.

Cruise across the Irish Sea to Waterford

We take a cruise across the Irish Sea, benefitting from the refreshing sea air. Our first stop is a comfortable hotel facing the riverside at Waterford. Ireland's oldest city, Waterford is known for its stunning coastlines and fascinating Viking history.

The town is a jumble of interesting shops and the House of Crystal provides a fascinating insight into the production of the exquisite, world-famous crystal glass. At New Ross we explore the replica of the triple-masted ship 'Dunbrody'. Actors bring the past to life on board, showing emigrants escaping the potato famine by sailing to America.


Beautiful Killarney

Our second stop is Killarney. Situated on the edge of Killarney National Park, the town is surrounded by the natural beauty that makes Ireland famous - lakes, mountains and woodland. We stay in a three-star hotel on the edge of the town. 

A day touring the Ring of Kerry, one of the most famous coastal drives in the world, provides breath-taking views, both inland and along the coast, as we take in the best of traditional Ireland on the Iveragh Peninsula.

"It was a fantastic holiday; great fellowship and we loved the Irish scenery."

A varied tour

We will also visit Muckross House, which was once visited by Queen Victoria. Many of the rooms in this impressive building have been restored to their original Victorian style. There are also impressive gardens to explore.

We return to Waterford for our last night, before beginning our homeward journey.
