We start with a local departure and make our way to the Welsh port where we board the ferry for the sea crossing to Ireland. After disembarking we make our way across Ireland to our hotel – the Falls Hotel and Spa, Ennistymon, Co. Clare. Due to travelling times we will arrive during the mid to late evening. Housed in an 18th Century mansion, beside the River Inagh, 5 minutes walk from Ennistymon. Features include a gym, indoor pool and outdoor hot tub overlooking the River Inagh. All rooms are well appointed and there is a bar and riverside restaurant.
