NEW AUTHENTIC AMERICA

This itinerary can be completely customized to give you the exact vacation that you want.

Enjoy ten wonderful nights exploring Ireland and Scotland on this chauffeur tour. Delight in the comfort of your own private touring vehicle, complimented by the attention, friendliness and knowledge of your personal driver! Seven nights in Ireland is ample time to tour much of the country, without being too rushed. Start with two nights in vibrant Dublin City, where you'll discover a wealth of famous sights and attractions. On Day 3, you'll be collected by your driver and leave Dublin to enjoy time in Kilkenny - Ireland's bustling Medieval City, as well as County Kerry - Ireland's most scenic locale. You'll also spend a night in County Clare - a beautifully diverse county, known globally for the Cliffs of Moher and unique Burren Region. Fly to Scotland (flight price not included) on Day 8 to begin a three night stay in the picturesque and historic city of Edinburgh. Spend your first and third Scotland days exploring this great city, and on your second day, we've arranged a guided day-tour from the city. On this award-winning day-tour, you'll be part of an intimate small group, and journey deep into the Scottish Highlands, skirting the mysterious shores of storied Loch Ness. Truly an Ireland & Scotland tour to be fondly remembered and cherished!

"Ireland Vacation"

Nicole A

What an amazing trip! Michelle was amazing at assisting in the planning. Our hotels were amazing. The recommended itinerary suited exactly what my family and I wanted to experience on our trip to Ireland. I would definitely utilize Authentic Vacations again!

"Driving through history"

Ed

Edmonton

We had an excellent trip. Absolutely no problems with bookings that Donna arranged. Driving Ireland and seeing it at your own pace lets you stop to admire ruins not normally on a tour. Only thing we would do differently is upgrade the car. As someone who enjoys driving I regret not having something a little more sporty!

"Christmas in Ireland"

William

We talked to Lainie about what we were looking for. She listened to our wishes offering suggestion and developed our plan. We got exactly what we were looking for. Made sure we were happy and answering a million questions. We couldn’t be happier. Thank you Lainie !

"An epic solo road trip!"

Anthea Ong

Singapore

Just want to say a big thank you to Anna Wilgenbursch for all her help and patience in supporting my free and easy solo road trip across Ireland, chasing writers poets and thin places. The bed and breakfast choices were fantastic. I don't usually go through an agent to help with booking accommodation etc. but I had little to do so myself so am glad that I had Anna to take that load off me. I appreciate too that Anna was on WhatsApp with me and very responsive. I felt very supported. Thank you.

Josi was an immense help. From the beginning with her planning based on our wishes and prompt replies we felt very confident everything was covered. And it was! beautiful locations great suggestions for sites to see we could not have been more pleased with the whole Adventure. It was so nice to have all the reservations set and the car rental covered it made the whole experience stress free. I will definitely reach out to Josie for my next vacation.
