Armagh

Depart Derry for a trip through county Tyrone to the ‘Orchard County’ of Armagh where we arrive at Ireland’s ecclesiastical capital and the former home of St Patrick, Armagh city. Following a guided tour of the mall, which includes a history of the infamous former Armagh women’s prison, you have the chance to visit one of the nearby attractions including Armagh county museum (free admission) or the Armagh planetarium (admission fee applies) .  

Following lunch we visit the Anglican cathedral (former location of St Patrick’s original church-small admission fee applies) before continuing to its catholic counterpart for a further visit (free admission) and then returning to Derry via the scenic Sperrin mountains.
