Spending Easter Sunday at sea will be the perfect start to this rewarding getaway, with time to enjoy an array of festivities on board your ship as you sail from Southampton to charming Cobh – the first of two stops south of the Irish border. This historic, picturesque town is simply a joy to explore, with its colourful harbour – overlooked by the imposing St Colman’s Cathedral – and traditional pubs serving proper Irish coffee. Cobh is also where many of the Titanic’s passengers embarked on her fateful voyage; and the fantastic Titanic Experience is a must-visit to explore the town’s links to the infamous ill-fated ocean liner.

A day in Dublin follows, offering you the chance to uncover the many attractions of the Republic of Ireland’s vibrant capital. A guided walking tour is a great way to take in the fine architecture and iconic sights of the city, including St Patrick’s Cathedral – Ireland’s largest church – and Dublin Castle. For an authentic Irish experience, be sure to take time to visit the Temple Bar district and sample the famous ‘craic’; or stop-by the Guinness Storehouse and enjoy a taste of the proper ‘black stuff’. From Dublin Braemar will sail to Northern Ireland’s attraction-packed capital, Belfast. Highlights here include Titanic Belfast, the historic steamship SS Nomadic and the Renaissance-style City Hall. Belfast is also your gateway to the fascinating Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site. Taking a tour to see the incredible basalt columns of this stunning natural wonder in all its glory is an unforgettable way end to your time in Ireland.
