8 Nights around Portsmouth England to Dublin Ireland

Portsmouth, England
The City of Portsmouth, surrounded by the waters which have brought her fame and fortune through the ages, is located on Portsea Island on the south coast of England. To the north lie rolling Downs, to the south the busy shipping lanes of the Solent and the picturesque Isle of Wight. Langstone Harbor to the east is a sheltered sanctuary for many species of wildlife and the Naval Dockyard to the west has been in existence since the days of Richard the Lionheart. Portsmouth has been one of England's most important ports for hundreds of years.

Be sure to visit Portsmouth's historic Dockyard and the ships HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose. The Mary Rose is the only 16th century warship on display anywhere in the world. Built between 1509 and 1511, she was one of the first ships able to fire a broadside, and was a firm favorite of King Henry VIII. She sank accidentally during an engagement with the French fleet in 1545. Her rediscovery and raising were major events in the history of nautical archaeology.

Portsmouth's D-Day Museum was opened in 1984 to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of D-Day. Its centerpiece is the magnificent Overlord Embroidery commissioned as a tribute to the sacrifice and heroism of the men and women who took part in Operation Overlord.


Honfleur, France
Honfleur is a commune in the Calvados department in northwestern France. It is located on the southern bank of the estuary of the Seine across from le Havre and very close to the exit of the Pont de Normandie. Its inhabitants are called Honfleurais.

It is especially known for its old, beautiful picturesque port, characterized by its houses with slate-covered frontages, painted many times by artists, including in particular Gustave Courbet, Eugène Boudin, Claude Monet and Johan Jongkind, forming the école de Honfleur (Honfleur school) which contributed to the appearance of the Impressionist movement. The Sainte-Catherine church, which has a bell-tower separate from the principal building, is the largest church made out of wood in France.


Dartmouth, England
Dartmouth is a town and civil parish in the English county of Devon. It is a tourist destination set on the banks of the estuary of the River Dart, which is a long narrow tidal aria that runs inland as far as Totnes. It lies within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and South Hams District, and has a population of 5,512.



St. Peter Port, Guernsey, England
As well as being a parish, St. Peter Port is a small town consisting mostly of steep narrow streets and steps on the overlooking slopes.

In addition to the church, the market, the Arcade, the High Street and the Pollet are all part of the shopping district.


St. Malo, France
Saint-Malo is a walled port city in Brittany in northwestern France on the English Channel.

Saint-Malo during the Middle Ages was a fortified island at the mouth of the Rance River, controlling not only the estuary but the open sea beyond.

Saint-Malo became notorious as the home of the corsairs, French privateers and sometimes pirates.

St. Malo is famous for its local oysters from the nearby village of Cancale.

Points of interest include the walled city, the Chateau of Saint-Malo, the Soldier Tower, Cathedral of St. Vincent, just to name a few!


Roscoff, France


Tresco, UK
A variety of scenery is found on the island, including rugged granite outcrops, heathland of the exposed north coast and mainly shell beaches in the east and south. The variety of its scenery and geomorphology is partly a result of the last ice age, where the Devensian ice sheet clipped the north side of the island leaving deformation till deposits.

The character of Tresco varies from that of the other islands in the Scilly archipelago as it is primarily run as a holiday resort, with virtually all activity and employment being tourist-related.



Cobh (Cork), Ireland
Cobh is known from 1850 until 1920 as Queenstown, a popular tourist seaport town on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland. Cobh is on the south side of Great Island in Cork Harbor and almost 100,000 cruise liner passengers and crew arrive in the town each year when their ships berth right in the center of the town at Ireland's only dedicated Cruise Terminal. Tourist attractions are focused on the immense maritime and emigration legacy of the town. The Queenstown Story Heritage Center, Titanic Experience, Titanic Trail walking tour, Cobh Museum, Cobh Road Train, Spike Island tours and St Colman's Cathedral provide plenty for visitors to see and do. The town has remained virtually unchanged since RMS Titanic departed from Cork Harbor in 1912, with the street scape and piers still much the same. Facing the town are Spike Island and Haulbowline Island. On a high point in the town stands the magnificent St Colman's Cathedral, and its carillon of forty-nine bells.

Dublin, Ireland
Home to one of the fastest growing populations of any European capital city, Dublin has a world-famous literary history. There are several theaters within the city center to be visited, as well as street music, a multitude of pubs, and plenty of nightlife.
