Titanic history, complex history and politics, Irish hospitality, and beautiful countryside await you on Bright Horizons 32 lifelong learning cruise.

The Morning Star pub is a must for anyone anxious to see a living ‘museum piece’ of old Belfast. (It’s not a touristy bar and we highly recommend it.)
