Ireland

A warm Irish welcome awaits in this land steeped in myths and legends. Enjoy a ‘proper’ Guinness in one of its welcoming pubs and chat with the locals. Take in the rugged coastal landscape or the tranquil lakelands of Killarney.

Irish Tours

Dublin, the capital city, is the cultural, political and economic centre of Ireland, and a perfect place to start a tour of the country.

Explore the grounds of 18th Century Trinity College, Ireland's oldest university, and view the world famous Book of Kells - an illustrated medieval manuscript - in the College's Old Library. Visit 13th Century Dublin Castle, impressive St Patrick's Cathedral and cross the River Liffey on the romantic Ha'penny Bridge. At night, why not stroll down to Temple Bar, the city's cultural quarter, for a meal and a pint of Guinness? Alternatively, enjoy a fantastic evening of traditional Irish music and dance at the Belvedere Hotel, produced by leading Irish dance company, Damhsa.

St Patrick’s Day - an annual celebration of Irish culture - is one of the biggest annual events in the world and the festival in Dublin is, not surprisingly, one of the best, attracting over 1 million people each year.

Heritage Tours

The Ring of Kerry, in the surrounds of Killarney National Park, mixes breathtaking landscapes with charming villages. Long lunches are a must. The Cliffs of Moher, Ireland’s most visited and spectacular cliffs, rise over 200 metres above the Atlantic, and Skellig Michael Island can be seen rising out of the ocean. Travel by boat to this haunting island, with the remains of its 6th Century Christian Monastery, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Skellig Ring, a coastal drive that is an extension of the Ring of Kerry, was recently named in Lonely Planet’s Top Ten ‘Best in Travel 2017’ list.

The Wild Atlantic Way is an extraordinary coastal route which follows the Atlantic coast of Ireland, from Derry-Londonderry in the north to Kinsale in the south. Visit Malin Head, Ireland’s most northerly point, where the Star Wars movie The Last Jedi was filmed, or climb the 79 steps of Farad Lighthouse, which reaches out bravely into the Atlantic Ocean.

Donegal is Ireland's most northerly county and was named the number one cool place to visit in 2017 by National Geographic Traveller magazine. Donegal is a rural county which boasts spectacular landscapes and a rugged coastline. It is also home to traditional crafts which have been practised for centuries and ancient settlements which can be traced back for generations.

Ireland’s history goes back millennia of course. Visit one of the most important prehistoric sites in Europe - Bru na Boinne - made up of Neolithic chamber tombs, henges and standing stones, some dating back as far as 35 BC. We can track back even further with The Burren, an area unspoiled since the Ice Age. For those with an interest in botany, archaeology or ecology, this should definitely make the itinerary.

Ireland’s ancient east boasts the earliest evidence of human settlement in the country and an abundance of historical sites that enable visitors to trace the development of civilisation, society and religion in Ireland.

Kiss the Blarney Stone and, as legend has it, you will have the gift of the gab – for over 200 years world statesmen (including American Presidents), literary giants and stars of the silver screen have joined the millions of pilgrims. But don’t worry, visitors are no longer dangled by their ankles to reach it, though an element of contortion is still required.

Garden Tours

Ireland is home to some of the world's most beautiful gardens. First planted in 1868, Mount Usher, for example, is one of Ireland’s greatest gardens and a world-class example of a so-called Robinsonian garden, with its relaxed, informal and natural layout.

Bantry House and Gardens in County Cork features within its 45 acre grounds a collection of sub tropical plants and shrubs reflecting the best in European design and style.

Brigit’s Garden offers a touch of magic in the heart of Ireland’s West, at the gateway to Connemara. Its unique gardens, themed on the old Celtic festivals, bring Irish heritage to life in beautiful surroundings.

The Japanese Gardens and St Fiacra’s Garden at the Irish National Stud are part of a unique attraction of outstanding natural beauty that is home to some of the most magnificent horses and sumptuous gardens to be found anywhere in the world.
