Description

Experience the stunning scenery of Lough Swilly while learning about the cultural past and the ancestral roots of the O'Dochartaigh Clan at O'Doherty's Keep in Inishowen, Co. Donegal, the land of Amazing Grace, the Flight of the Earls and so much more.

Our tour begins with exclusive access to the Keep itself, with a brief talk from local historian Saoirse O'Dochartaigh in Swan Park, overlooking Lough Swilly and the Crana River. From here, we travel to the historic Napoleonic fort at Fort Dunree Military Museum, where you will find out the history of the Napoleonic years, the years of British occupation, and the role of Fort Dunree over the last two centuries.

We then proceed to Buncrana Pier, where we board the state of the art, Amazing Grace yacht for a trip around Lough Swilly, with historian John Hegarty as your guide, and see Ned's Point Fort, Knockalla Fort and many more, and travel along the same route as the Flight of the Earls over four centuries ago.

Following a beautiful lunch at Tank & Skinny's bistro looking out over the pier, we then travel to another O'Doherty Fort, now comprising the Tower Museum in Derry, covering history from early settlements in the area, through to the Spanish Armada and encompassing the more recent troubles on the island of Ireland.

We look forward to welcoming you to experience our culture, history and wonderful scenery on this one-off full day tour. Booking is essential and tickets are very limited, and highly sought after, so please buy yours now.

Please Note: This tour is not suitable for those with physical impairment requiring walking aids.
