Custom Tours

The choice is yours! Unlike many tours that lock you into a set program of activities, we work with you to design a dream vacation of your own. YOU decide where to stay, what to see and do, at the time YOU choose!

Perhaps you want to visit the village your ancestors came from, play golf on one (or many) of Ireland’s outstanding links or parklands golf courses, fish in the pristine rivers, walk or cycle in the countryside and visit the well known archeological and historical sites. We provide you the flexibility to do it all.

Maybe touring churches, museums, art galleries and craft centers is more to your liking. Shopping is an enjoyable pastime, especially in the cities of Dublin, Cork and Galway, where you’ll find luxe designer boutiques as well as farmer’s markets. Visits to Waterford Crystal, Belleek China, the Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery or Bushmill’s all offer very interesting and informative tours, as well as the opportunity to sample and purchase their fine products.

Our previously described tours can be modified to suit your specific interests.

The beauty of Ireland is unsurpassed and photo opportunities abound. Although the weather is changeable, no special camera equipment is ever necessary to capture the unique light and scenery. Be sure to check out our SLIDE SHOW for just a sampling of what you’ll see.

Eire, or Ireland, may look small but the diversity of the island is simply incredible. Each of the historical provinces, Leinster, Munster, Connacht and Ulster offer glorious landscapes, fascinating ruins and historical sites, exciting cultural experiences and lots of good old craic (fun)!

Whether in the cities of Dublin, Belfast, Killarney, or Cork or in the quiet countryside of the Aran Islands, Connemara or County Meath, you’ll find that the people are warm and welcoming. The Irish are officially known as the Friendliest People In the world!

“Leave the driving to us” and we will transport you in the appropriate-sized luxury vehicle for your group. Our professional driver/guides have the experience, expertise and congeniality to offer you the best possible vacation.

We can also provide for “self-drive” adventures by arranging a rental car with GPS, detailed directions, vouchers for your selected accomodations and suggested sites to visit. There will always be a human, in Ireland, to help with questions, emergencies, changes, etc. Just remember to look right at the round-abouts, observe the speed limit in kilometers, keep to the left and stay out of the bushes!

ACCOMODATIONS

Do you prefer the conveniences of a modern hotel? Would you like to experience the warmth of Irish hospitality in a B&B? Have you always wanted to spend a night in a castle? It’s YOUR choice!

On our custom designed adventures, we utilize a hub-and-spoke style of travel which means that you will be based in 1 place for several days, taking day trips to different sites each day. This cuts down on the amount of packing/unpacking and shifting of luggage that needs to be done, thereby allowing you more time to sightsee and also relax.

All breakfasts are included, with lunches and dinners usually on your own, although we will certainly guide you to our favorite pubs and restaurants. Or perhaps you’ll prefer to picnic with fresh goodies from a local market. It’s YOUR choice!

We would be delighted to custom plan your Emerald Isle Adventure and to that end, we have designed a short questionnaire to really get you thinking about what you are looking for, the experiences you truly want, and to help determine the best tour for your group.
