Never is the well-used phrase ‘a picture paints a thousand words’ so pertinent than when parading your holiday snaps, and as a tour operator Ffestiniog Travel actively welcomes its customers to share their visual experiences of our rail tours with us. Keen photo blogger Vince Chadwick recently returned from our 15-day Irish Circular escorted tour and has captured his experience in captioned images that offer a real taste of the ‘Emerald Isle’.

Vince ends his photo blog with the words:

“What a fabulous holiday. Two weeks in Ireland travelling mostly by rail in good company (18 of us plus our tour guide - and Gerry of course), visiting so many small railways and other interesting destinations.”

And you can see for yourself by browsing through his many images and helpful captions on his Vince’s World blog website

Follow Vince’s journey around Ireland and see what this small group of travellers encountered in this well-researched Ffestiniog Travel tour that included:

Ffestiniog Travel will be repeating a section of this tour in September 2017 on its Far West of Ireland escorted holiday when we travel on Iarnród Éireann's modern fleet, experience a unique form of rail travel at Lartigue Monorail and indulge in a spot of nostalgia at the West Clare Railway and Foynes Flying Boat Museum. With stays in Dublin, Galway, Limerick, Tralee and Cork, and an Explorer Pass for optional independent travel, this tour offers another wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in Irish culture.
