Spend a leisurely morning exploring vibrant, artistic Galway as you please. In Athlone, where you will enjoy a choice of Irish coffee, whiskey or beer as you cruise Lough Ree in a replica Viking long ship. Then head to Sean's Bar in Athlone for a CIE Tours Exclusive. Sean's Bar is not only the oldest in Ireland, dating back to 900 AD, it's the oldest in Europe, according to the Guinness Book of Records. The sloped floors (often covered with sawdust), candlelight, and turf fire pay nostalgic tribute to this pub's rich history. Enjoy dinner in your Athlone hotel this evening.
