The Gateway to Discovery

Staying at Old Essmore holiday cottage Ireland means you will never be far from the old and the new of what Ireland has to offer<< New text box >>

Belfast -

Travel north and in little over an hour you can be in the heart of the  city with great shopping, great shows and great places to see.

Why not investigate the human stories behind the RMS Titanic or even a black taxi tour and follow the history of ‘the troubles’, marvel at the murals living history or go beyond the walls and be enthralled by the history that is Crumlin Road Gaol. Then if time is on your side you can travel further afield and perhaps visit some of our great National Trust properties: Castle Ward, Mount Stewart, Florence Court or the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Tours & Excursions

There are many exciting tours in and around the city of Belfast to help you open up and explore this great treasure chest. You can begin with an open topped city bus tour or perhaps take a Value Cabs city tour; set off with a purpose to seek out CS Lewis and source his childhood inspiration for the Chronicles of Narnia.

Dublin  -

 travel south  and once again you can be in Dublin city in just over an hour.

From her humble beginnings as a Viking trading port to a walled medieval city and then - in a glorious century of expansion - to an elegant Georgian metropolis with wide streets, gracious squares and great houses, neatly bordered by its two canals, whatever way you choose to experience her, Dublin is a city that will capture your heart!

There are many ways to see Dublin, on foot, sampling the sights, sounds, and tastes of the city on the go. Others prefer to take a less energetic approach and avail of one of the many hop-on-hop-off tour buses that criss-cross the city. For many their tour of Dublin is just part of an Irish experience that takes in other parts of this beautiful country.

Leave the car.

Why not drive to Newry or Dundalk, park up and take a coach or train into the heart of

Dublin or Belfast

Newgrange Ireland


Newgrange was constructed over 5,000 years ago (about 3,200 B.C.), making it older than Stonehenge in England and the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. Newgrange was built during the Neolithic or New Stone Age by a farming community that prospered on the rich lands of the Boyne Valley. Knowth and Dowth are similar mounds that together with Newgrange have been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
To Get There.
Take the M1 heading south. Take the first exit after the Boyne Cable Bridge. This is signed for Donore and Brú na Bóinne. Go through the village of Donore and the Visitor Centre is 2km past the village on the right hand side.
