We LOVE Ireland
We know that you'll love Ireland too, why wouldn't you, we have it all! Heather covered mountains, rugged shorelines with hidden coves and battle-scarred castles, deep dark loughs nestled below sheep dotted hills, iconic attractions, challenging golf courses and without doubt the best pubs - home to traditional music, tall stories and Guinness.
A warm and friendly welcome awaits you and we would be delighted to hear from you, so why not contact us!
These are the experiences and truly special moments you will remember always. These little gems can be included in your itinerary at the initial planning stage or they can be purchased and arranged on a whim as the fancy takes you throughout your vacation. So why not treat yourself or surprise one of your travelling companions with a perfect little treasure.
Take a look at some of our favourites below but remember, we can organise whatever your heart desires.
National Geographic places Ireland within the Top 5 Walking & Hiking destinations in the world. We will arrange a local knowledgeable guide to suit your ability and aspirations from gentle rambles through ancient woodlands to hikes along our waymarked trails or stroll through the busy streets of Dublin and learn about the architecture and history of Ireland’s capital city.
Ireland’s oldest and most traditional form of transport is the horse & carriage known as a Jaunting car. Dublin and more notably Killarney, are the locations to step back in time and experience it today. Your own Jarvey (driver/guide) will regale you with history, legends and folklore delivered with that famous Irish wit! A truly delightful way to explore the beauty of Killarney National Park.
Could there be a more idyllic way to spend a few hours of your vacation? Ireland has hundreds of lakes and rivers and a spectacular coastline to explore. For complete beginners we have expert and patient guides who will take you out on calm tranquil waters and for the more experienced we have guides to provide you with a challenge on our more demanding water ways, both inland and coastal.
Ireland is one of Europe’s most popular sport fishing destinations, which has gained an enviable reputation due to the huge variety of excellent quality fishing available. You may like to try your hand at deep sea angling on a chartered boat or go off the beaten track with the aid of a Ghillie to seek out the best river and lake locations for a spot of coarse or fly-fishing amidst stunning scenery.
There are many different boat trips available from leisurely lake cruises to thrilling rib rides along Ireland’s rugged coastline as well as econature Seafari trips with informative guides to see some of our prolific wild life, including, seal colonies, puffins and white tailed eagles and not forgetting whale and dolphin watching trips too…. just a few of the many options available to you.
If you are an adventure seeker let us arrange an expert local guide to accompany you on your ascent to the summit of one of our many mountain ranges. The mountains in Ireland do not reach the dizzying heights that some countries can boast but they can be challenging and the breath taking beauty of the rugged unspoilt scenery will linger in your memory long after the vacation ends.
We are delighted to share with you some of the wonderful comments that we receive from our clients
I speak for our team when I say Niall Wallace did an incredible
job wrangling our group, making changes on the fly, being a knowledgeable guide, and accommodating every request. He embraced being part of our group and having him with
us made the experience that much better.
