The Lough Neagh Tour
The Place of Untouched Beauty
After a short meeting and shaking of hands so everyone gets to know one another, James Walshe, the owner of Ireland Coach Tours, your Chauffeur and Tour Guide, will begin your journey to the unique and original part of Ireland, untouched by the Tourism Industry. With his love of the history of Lough Neagh and its surrounding townlands, Jame’s passion and character will shine through. He will provide a snapshot of the day ahead which takes travellers on an immersive visit of the ancient forts, historical castles and lots of other interesting sites that have a history going back decades through the mists of time.
One of the first stops on our tour is the impressive and imposing Ardboe Cross. This is Northern Ireland's largest Celtic Cross which has been engraved by ancient writings. Fortunately for you, the inscription of the cross has been given to James, having been passed down through generations from the time this great cross was built, over a 1000 years ago.
James will then take a moment to point out a stone which has been known to cure warts, sickness and all kinds of ailments (and yes, it still being used to this day as a place of Healing). Then all aboard Kitty (James named the coach in memory of his late Mother), on we go to travel back in time through a countryside unknown to many, through the ancient provinces of Ulster and so on we go to enjoy a fascinating journey with Ireland Coach Tours. See you There.
