Silversea Luxury Cruises À WATERFORD (Dunmore East)

Visit Ireland's oldest city, and delve deep into the Viking Triangle's immense history, as you explore the endlessly scenic Copper Coast. With so much on offer, you'll want to reach Waterford by hook or by crook. That famous phrase is said to have originated here when King Henry II uttered it while sailing for Waterford, passing Hook Peninsular and the village of Crooke en-route. With wind-swept scenery, ancient monasteries, and Kilkenny's castellated stronghold lying inland, this stunning region of Ireland drips with history and intrigue. View more

Arriving feels a little like sailing into a living postcard, as Dunmore East's pearly string of white houses, sewn into the emerald Irish coast, welcome you ashore. Come summer, it's dotted with picnicking families and children darting in and out of the calm waters. Wander the high harbour walls, fill up on pub lunches and pints - and fend off squawking gulls hunting ice-creams. Huff fresh sea air, as you follow coastal trails out over secret rocky coves, filled with chattering Kittiwake gulls. It's a short jaunt from Dunmore East to Waterford, where you can delve into the history of Ireland's oldest city, which was founded in 914 AD. Explore museums telling true-life tales and wander tightknit streets of preserved Viking and Norman history. Reginald's Tower is an icon of Waterford, watching warily out over the waterfront. Look out for the cannonball embedded high up in its stones - left behind from a siege led by Oliver Cromwell. Famous Waterford Crystal adds a little sparkle, and you can explore glittering museums dedicated to Waterford's most precious export.

Dunmore East, Waterford Countryside, Curraghmore House, Keep, Courtyard, Victorian Mansion

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive through the beautiful countryside of Waterford en route to Curraghmore House, home of the 9th Marquis of Waterford. The house is a remarkable sight, with its architecture being part 12th-century and part 18th-century, with strong French lines. Unlike other grand houses of this period, the 1176 keep of the Le Poer family has been incorporated into the 18th century house. Of the many curious and interesting features of Curraghmore, the most striking is the courtyard front of the house, where the original Castle is encased in a spectacular Victorian mansion with flanking Georgian ranges.


Parterre, Tiered Lawns, Lake, Arboretum, Kitchen Gardens, Sitka Spruce, King John's Bridge

Formal parterre, tiered lawns, lake, arboretum, and kitchen gardens were all developed during the 19th century, and survive to this day. At this time, some of Ireland's most remarkable surviving trees were planted in the estate's arboretum. Today, these trees frame miles of beautiful river walks. A Sitka spruce overlooks King John's Bridge, and is one of the tallest trees in Ireland. King John's Bridge, a stone-arched structure built in 1205, spans the Clodagh River and is the oldest bridge in Ireland. Approximately 12 miles (about 19.3 kilometres) of famine relief boundary walls, and four sturdy wrought iron gates, surround the estate.


Exclusive Tour, Main Reception Rooms, Tea Room, Tea/Coffee with Scones, Copper Coast

Your exclusive, guided tour incorporates the main reception rooms of Curraghmore House, and includes tea or coffee served with scones in the Tea Room.

The original dwelling place is Tourin Castle, an imposing tower house dating from 1560. Tourin was bought by Richard Musgrave in 1780, and, in 1840, his grandson built the more spacious and classically proportioned Main House at Tourin. At this time, the existing garden was enlarged and redesigned. A long, formal Broad Walk leads from the Main House to the pleasure grounds. Beyond, there to the walled garden, which originally belonged to the tower house, and has supplied the family with fruit and vegetables for generations.


Main Garden, Walled Garden, Woodland Walks, Onsite Tea Room, Coffee or Tea

Today, the Walled Garden is a mix of ornamental and productive planting, and is at its best and most colourful in midsummer. Successive generations of the Musgrave and Jameson families (Joan Jameson married Tommy Ormsby Jameson in 1920) have left their mark on the garden. The present owner's mother, Norwegian born Didi Jameson, was a keen plants-woman, and the fine collection of trees and shrubs that she planted have now reached maturity. The gardens at Tourin include the Main Garden, Walled Garden, and extended, broad-leaved woodland walks, which lead to the banks of the Blackwater River and Tourin Quay. Following your tour, proceed to the onsite Tea Room for a cup of tea or coffee. At the conclusion of your tour, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 1.5-hour drive back to the pier.

The Wonders of Kilkenny

Discover Kilkenny, arguably the pre-eminent medieval city of Ireland. Kilkenny's rich medieval heritage is evident in the city's treasure trove of historical buildings and landmarks, including St Canice's Cathedral and Kilkenny Castle.

The day begins with a lovely scenic drive to Ancient Kilkenny which was named after St. Canice. Kilkenny is home to two exquisite structures, St. Canice Cathedral and Kilkenny Castle.


Kilkenny Castle

The first stop is Kilkenny Castle where the Normans arrived in the 12th century and built the castle, which overlooks the River Nore. The vividly painted ceiling of its long gallery has been implicated in a few stiff necks - its beauty is simply fascinating. Three of the castles four original towers survive today. Kilkenny Castle became the home of the Butlers - the Earls and Dukes of Ormonde - in 1391. The family continued to reside there until 1935. You will undergo a self-guided visit and 'meet' a few generations via a plethora of portraits that still adorn the Castle.


Free Time in the City

Following your visit to the Castle there will be some time to explore Kilkenny independently and perhaps visit the famous Kilkenny Design Centre to browse the wonderful collection of Irish Designer products.

St Canice's Cathedral

Next stop for photos outside St Canice's Cathedral and Round Tower, which are an essential part of the structural heritage in the vibrant medieval city of Kilkenny. This ecclesiastical site was founded in the 6th century and named after St Canice. "Cill Channigh" (the Irish name for the town of Kilkenny) is the Gaelic for the Church of Canice, the church that originally stood on the site in the 6th century.


Smithwick's Brewery

After Lunch, visit the Smithwick's Brewery. This new multi-sensory and interactive experience will take you on a journey through the medieval origins of brewing on the site of the St. Francis Abbey Brewery to the arrival of John Smithwick in the 1700's, and right up to the present day.

Dunmore East, Kilmeaden, Woodland Gardens of Mount Congreve

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive inland to the townland of Kilmeaden. Upon arrival, a visit is made to the woodland gardens of Mount Congreve, an 18th-century Georgian estate and mansion situated near the village of Kilmeaden in County Waterford, Ireland. The architect was John Roberts, a Waterford-based architect who subsequently designed and built most of the 18th-century public buildings in Waterford, including both cathedrals. The woodland gardens of Mount Congreve were founded on the inspiration, generosity and encouragement of Mr. Lionel N. de Rothschild. He became arguably the greatest landscaper of the 20th century, and one of the cleverest hybridists.


About Mount Congreve Estate & Gardens

The gardens were created by Mr. Ambrose Congreve with the well-recognised assistance of Mr. Herman Dool, who came from Holland to work at Mount Congreve. Mr. Dool's achievements at Mount Congreve were recognised by the Dutch government, and he was awarded one of the highest honours possible in Holland, an extraordinary event. Situated at a sheltered bend along the Suir River, this magnificent estate covers over approximately 700 hundred acres (about 283 hectares), approximately 100 acres (about 40 hectares) of which comprise the most fantastic gardens imaginable. Expertly-designed and tended by these two gentlemen for over 60 years, this garden not only has a remarkable collection of rare and unusual plants and trees, but the landscape is one of the very few that has been designed for an estate of this scale.


Guided Walking Tour, Magnificent Gardens

Mr. Dool has never put in less than 25 plants of a variety because, he believes, the mass planting makes the proper statement when the garden matures. The work started by Mr. Congreve continues to-date. The collection is still expanding steadily under the encyclopaedic knowledge of Curator Mr. Michael White (recipient of the Waley Medal from the Royal Horticultural Society of Great Britain) with new additions and our own programme of breeding to create new hybrids of rhododendrons and magnolias, among others. Enjoy a guided stroll through a portion of the many miles of these magnificent gardens, and indulge your senses with this magical piece of garden heaven. At the conclusion of your tour, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier
