Ireland, Eire, the Emerald Isle; each of these names brings to mind a fair green island with rolling fields, friendly people, dramatic coastlines and a history as long as any in the world. Come with us as we explore this delightful island discovering the history and architecture of Dublin, the magnificent scenery of the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and Connemara, and the natural treasures of the north, including one of the world's truly unique features, the Giant's Causeway. To ensure a leisurely pace and a rich Irish experience, we will stay multiple nights in most cities, allowing you ample opportunity to enjoy a visit to the local pub and to absorb the easy going lifestyles of the Irish. With the luck of the Irish, you will have the services of Brendan, our very popular Irish driver/guide. For 2021 we are doing what we can to help protect you and everyone from the spread of COVID-19. We have an evolving set of measures including cleaning and maintain shared areas such as the coach. In addition we will be keeping our Ireland tour groups small at 15 to 26 members on coaches that will allow for more social distancing.

BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE: Your health, safety and security are our top priority. Best practices to combat the spread of COVID-19 are ever-evolving. For peace of mind, your deposit for this journey is fully refundable until June 30, 2021.  Learn more...
