Five Best Tour Guides for Tourists in Ireland
A great way to make the most of your time in Ireland is to sign up for a tour provided by a specialist company. Tours take away the hassle of having to hire cars and drive – missing out on the lovely scenery, or mess about with trains and buses. Instead, you travel in comfort and get to relax properly and enjoy all Ireland has to offer. To find a good tour take a look at the top five options we have put together (in no particular order) for you.
Irish Day Tours
With a range of coaches seating from 9 to 64 groups of all sizes can enjoy tours which last from one day up to seven. They offer a good mix of traditional sightseeing tours alongside unusual one day trips such as the ghost bus tour, which includes a free drink and a walking tour.
Sliabh Liag Boat Tours
From spring to fall you can take one of these amazing boat tours and see the Sliabh Liag Cliffs. At nearly 2000 feet they are the highest cliffs in Europe and a sight worth seeing. There are sometimes sightings of dolphins, seals and whales, which all like to join the tour in an unofficial capacity! Guests have the opportunity to swim in the waters too if they want to.
Go Irish Tours
An Irish-run tour company they have a lot of experience in offering vacation across Ireland to suit all pockets, and with their specialist knowledge of Ireland they have plenty of insider tips to make every tour extra wonderful. You can expect a great choice of irish tours, whether you want to see the most visited landmarks and attractions or seek out the less touristy places which offer a peaceful treat. Examples of tours include a 6-day trip around ancient Ireland, the 7-8 day Lucky Charm Tour, the fun 8-day Wild Irish Rover, plus customized, short break and honeymoon options.
This higher-end tour guide company specializes in small group tours which are a little different to mainstream offers. This is your chance to see the real Ireland, on tours like the six-day journey through the eastern area of the country, or the six-day Driftwood tour which includes two nights in a castle.
Catering to the lower budget traveler, and offering free cancellation up to 24 hours before a tour departs, this is a great way to explore the charming Emerald Isle by coach. A typical example is their three-day Galway and Kerry trip which starts in Dublin before taking in the rugged coastline of the Atlantic and the Cliffs of Moher. Entrance fees are included, as well as accommodation. Paddywagon Tours offer a tiered pricing system, with a choice of a backpacker (shared dorm, basic breakfast) rate, and an economy (2-3 to an en-suite room, Irish breakfast) rate.
Ireland welcomes tourists, so have an amazing trip and enjoy the tour you take of this wonderful country.
