In James Nesbitt’s Ireland the actor will explore his homeland and offer his own take on Irish life, its culture, history and people.

Scenic highlights of the series include Co Cork and Blarney Castle, the spectacular beaches of Co Kerry and the towering Cliffs of Moher in Co Clare. Along the way, Nesbitt encounters some entertaining Irish characters and introduces viewers to less well-known places of interest.

Irish Ferries Holidays has put together a number of ex-UK self-drive itineraries to destinations featured in the series. For example, an eight-night holiday in the south-west could include:

  • 3 nights in Co Cork at the Carlton Kinsale Hotel
  • 1 night in Co Kerry at the Castlerosse Hotel in Killarney
  • 3 nights in Co Galway at the Galway Bay Hotel on Galway Bay
  • 1 night in Dublin at the Sandymount Hotel

This self-drive package includes return ferry crossings for a car and two adults from Pembroke to Rosslare on Day 1, returning from Dublin to Holyhead on Day 9, plus eight nights’ bed and breakfast accommodation at these 3-star and 4-star hotels.

The price per person is from £395, based on two sharing, for travel at any time in April or May.
