Historic Holywood Walking Tour

The elegant seaside town of Holywood frequently gets mentioned as one of the best places to live in Northern Ireland by the likes of the Sunday Times but its first published reference dates back to A.D. 634 courtesy of the Venerable Bede! He was concerned with the monastery founded by St. Laiseran or Laistranus but Holywood has seen a lot of history from monks and Vikings to the Normans and Scottish settlers. By C19, it was home to wealthy industrialists fleeing the smoke of Belfast. On this 90 minute walking tour, you'll learn all about this fascinating little town and we'll finish up with a cuppa and cake in one of Holywood's excellent cafes. Take time to visit one of the many independent shops in the town before hopping on the train for 10 minute journey back to central Belfast.
