Circumnavigating the ‘Emerald Isle’, taking in scenic and city highlights along the way, makes for an immersion into Ireland’s incredible beauty, rich culture and history. Within glacial Killary Harbour and Lough Swilly – only navigable by smaller ship – quintessentially Irish vistas of rolling valleys and craggy mountains await, while the mighty Cliffs of Moher are a natural masterpiece and sight to behold from the decks of Braemar. Elsewhere, with your small-scaled ship as your guide, you’ll revel in unspoilt scenery of picturesque islands, islets and rock formations, such as Spike Island, Inishabro and the Skelligs.[ReadMore]

Ashore, four enchanting cities reveal many highlights and famous tales of folklore. In Dublin, you can learn of the city’s historic links to writers including Oscar Wilde, James Joyce and Bram Stoker. Don’t miss iconic sites in the Republic of Ireland’s capital, such as vibrant Temple Bar, the Guinness Storehouse and Trinity College. A visit to Belfast is a chance to explore the connection between Titanic and Northern Ireland’s capital, a city entrenched in centuries of maritime history. Cobh is famed for its brightly coloured harbour and impressive cathedral, and for its fascinating links to the infamous, ill-fated ocean liner RMS Titanic too, while it also serves as your gateway to Blarney Castle – on tour you can visit the castle and kiss the famous Blarney Stone. Charming Galway meanwhile is sure to delight, with its delicious seafood, remarkable medieval history and dramatic west coast scenery.

Braemar is the shortest of Fred. Olsen's four smaller, friendly ocean-going cruise ships, with dimensions perfect for cruising picturesque, size-restricted rivers and docking in the heart of fascinating towns and cities.

Like the rest of the fleet, Braemar assumes the welcoming feel and intimacy of a country house hotel, and a sense of timeless style and elegance flows through the ship's comfortable bars and lounges, restaurants and spacious accommodation for up to 929 guests.
