From Portsmouth to Dublin, PONANT invites you to discover an itinerary in the heart of the Celtic Sea.
Step aboard the L’Austral for an 8-day cruise to lands of legend and romance.
Your first port of call will be at Guernsey, then at the Isles of Scilly, a strange little archipelago whose landscapes seem to have come straight out of Enid Blyton’s famous story, The Rockingdown Mystery. Here, long sandy beaches stand alongside green fields, while ruins of old castles stand proud on hilltops.
Step ashore at Cobh, a maritime port in County Cork in south west Ireland, and take a trip to discover the picturesque village of Blarney – a village famous for its castle – and Kinsale – a charming little port sheltered within the Bandon Estuary.
L’Austral will take you to Liverpool then to the Isle of Man, located between the United Kingdom and Ireland. You will discover the capital Douglas, a postcard from United Kingdom of yesteryear with a Victorian atmosphere.
During your stopover in Belfast, you can visit the Giant’s Causeway. This massive geological formation is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and features over 40,000 basalt columns.
You will disembark at Dublin, end of this beautiful cruise.
