FITNESS / PRACTICALITIES

Participants should have a good level of fitness. This tour is not especially strenuous, but will involve some walking around gardens and estate grounds.

In order to take in several important properties, our route around Ireland will involve four separate hotel stays and a moderate amount of coach travel, with several journeys of up to 2 hours in duration.
