The nine mountainous islands of the Azores were long a haven for Atlantic traders and explorers sailing between the Old and New Worlds. On the green and fertile island of Sao Miguel, Ponta Delgada was once no more than a fishing village. 16th and 17th century economic growth saw the construction of lavish palaces and churches of the period, many still surviving. Not to be missed are the twin crater lakes of Sete Cidades, just a causeway apart, but the one blue, the other green.

Cobh
Suggested Private Excursion

Cobh’s landmark Cathedral clings miraculously to the town’s steep slopes as they sweep down to the sea of Cork Harbour. That was also the last bit of Irish soil millions of Irish had under their feet before emigrating from here across the oceans in the last century. This tragic part of the nation’s history as well as Cobh’s historic and maritime story is brought alive in the splendid Interpretative Centre.

Dunmore East is a picturesque village which attracts all those who love fresh Atlantic fish and who enjoy the gourmet restaurants who know how to prepare and present it. Above the village the wooded park offers lovely walks. It was presented for public use by Lord Waterford in 1926. In the center of the village is an Anglo-Norman castle which was erected in the 12th Century. The Church of Ireland/Church of St. Andrew was built in 1815 and the spire and tower were added in 1881. Built as a mail packet terminal between 1814 and the late 1820's Dunmore East's harbor shifted the focus of the village. Mail for Waterford came to Dunmore from Milford Haven in Wales. The beautiful thatched houses and attractive buildings now in evidence mostly date from this period. Dunmore East was surrounded by big houses, where wealthy merchant families and navy officers made their homes during the British occupation. The Haven Hotel was one such house. Formerly the Villa Marina it was a holiday home for the Malcomsons, who had shipping and cotton interests.

Falmouth (Cornwall)

Falmouth is a resort and port in south-western England. The harbor is popular with pleasure craft and Falmouth has several boat-building yards and a major ship repair yard. The Pendennis and St Mawes castles face each other across the Roads. They were built by Henry VIII in the 16th century to guard the entrance to the Roads; the protection they offered played an important part in Falmouth's development as a port. Falmouth was one of the most important ports in Great Britain after 1698, when packet ships, fast, heavily armed sloops, sped across the oceans from Falmouth carrying post, royal messages, and bullion to all parts of the world. The packet service brought great prosperity to Falmouth, and the town's fortunes declined when it was transferred to Southampton. However, after the construction of the railway in 1863, Falmouth gained a new lease of life as a resort town.
