As you circumnavigate the ‘Emerald Isle’, taking in scenic isles, islets and city highlights, you’ll experience the depth of Ireland’s beauty, history and culture. See quintessentially Irish vistas of rolling valleys, craggy mountains and rock formations such as the mighty Cliffs of Moher, as you sail by natural treasures such as Spike Island, Inishabro and the Skelligs, and into glacial Killary Fjord and Lough Swilly – only navigable by smaller ship.[ReadMore]

Ashore, there are many delights to discover too. Cobh is famed for its brightly coloured harbour and impressive cathedral, and links to the infamous, ill-fated ocean liner, RMS Titanic. 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 – too. In Dublin, perhaps see the city’s iconic sights on a guided walking tour; don’t miss the vibrant Temple Bar and its famous ‘Irish craic’, and the Guinness Storehouse. Galway offers delicious local seafood, medieval history and dramatic west coast scenery, while Killybegs is the gateway to the coastal scenes of County Donegal’s Wild Atlantic Way.

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.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.
