Touch down in Dublin, the capital city of Ireland and your custom tailored tour designed with seniors in mind begins. The city is a mixture of 1,000 years of history and contemporary luxury traversing the River Liffey. Your transfer meets you at the airport ready to take you through the countryside to Lough Key. The cityscape quickly passes you by and opens up into the treasured emerald landscape, filled with fertile valleys and lush trees. Passing into County Roscommon you find ring forts and mounds shrouded in mystery, centered around 5,000 megalithic tombs.
The countryside rolls across the horizon, decorated with pristine lakes and the fast-paced current of Rivers Shannon and Suck. Roscommon Town is energetic with local shops situated near the ruins of the 13th century Norman castle. You can spot the stronghold’s frame, a structure cast in solitude in a field north of town, surrounded by manicured lawns and a town park. You continue onward to Lough Key Forest Park, situated near the picturesque ruins of a 12th-century Cistercian abbey. The park was formed in the 17th century by the King family, who owned the park until the 1950s. The lake ripples beneath the treetops.
A canopy tour around 1,000 feet long stretches through the trees almost 30 feet above the woodland floor. The cool breeze rustles the leaves. Locals cast lines off of rowboats and linger at the center of the water. In the evening, you are escorted to Lough Key House, a five-star bed and breakfast situated in a 200-year-old Georgian Period house. The period style furniture adds an extra layer of charisma to the surrounding landscape and sweet nature of your accommodation.
