Other Info

Visiting a new country is always enjoyable, but truly immersing oneself in and learning about its culture and people is where true delight comes. Ireland is full of great locations, and although you could go and visit the famous landmarks and be completely satisfied, we wanted to build a trip that was far more than that, a journey that checked all the boxes and revealed all the splendor hiding underneath the surface.

Starting from the enchanting city of Dublin, you'll be spending the following 11 nights touring around the magnificent island, as you tick not one but two nations in the process. Your first few nights will see you embarking on a fabulous rail tour along the Wild Atlantic Way. Accompanied by a local host, this tour includes stylish accommodation in Galway and Killarney, with the latter having the option of an included room upgrade (subject to availability) and a complimentary delectable breakfast.

Your incredible Irish experience continues from here with an immersive tour, taking you to the northernmost part of the island, stepping foot on two nations in the space of 7 days. You'll be chaperoned by an experienced tour leader and driver from one place to another via premium mini-coach transportation. Each hotel has been handpicked for its convenient location, comfort, and prior personal experience. Start each morning fully recharged as you enjoy six delectable Irish breakfasts, complemented by three flavorsome dinners just to make sure you've been fully exposed to the amazing Irish cuisine.

So what are you waiting for? The majesty and natural beauty of Ireland awaits you on the 12-day Castles and Causeways tour, a memorable and in-depth experience that may just be your best holiday yet.


Land at Dublin Airport (DUB) and make your way to your first nights accommodation in this beautiful city, just a 20 minute drive from the airport. Explore Dublin at your own pace on your first night before your 4 day Ireland and Grand Atlantic rail tour begins. This tour visits Ireland's premier landmark destinations, such as Cork, Cóbh, Blarney Castle, the Ring of Kerry, Bunratty Castle, the Cliffs of Moher, Galway Bay and Connemara. After days of discovery and adventure, enjoy a night back in Dublin that is yours to design. After Dublin, it's back on the road for you as you climb on board your 6 night Castles and Causeway small group tour. On what is set to be the time of your life, immerse yourself in this tour and experience local hospitality, intriguing legends, grand castles and long standing traditions from Dublin all the way down the coast and back again. Making your way back to Dublin, you’ll be just a short drive away from Dublin Airport where you will begin your return journey home.
