NEW Travel Updates

This two week Ireland vacation will bring you all around the island, allowing you to visit the most famous as well as many lesser-known treasures in Ireland. Your trip begins with a private chauffeur transfer on arrival, escorting you to your boutique Dublin hotel, just a few minutes from Grafton Street, Trinity College, and other Dublin treasures. While in Dublin, enjoy an exclusive Guinness experience where you will learn to pull your own pint and learn the behind the scenes secrets of this world-famous beverage. Experience a vintage tea jaunt through the streets of Dublin on an iconic double-decker bus. Enjoy a traditional evening of storytelling and banter while you dine in a local pub.

On day 3, you will pick up your car and head north through the historic Boyne Valley region, heading for Northern Ireland where you will overnight in iconic Belfast city. Next, it’s on to Derry, the ancient walled city, where the Wild Atlantic Way meets the Causeway Coastal Route, to spend two nights staying at the historic property, Beech Hill Country House. The next stay, at the Manor House in Enniskillen, gives you another night in Northern Ireland on the banks of the beautiful Lough Erne. 

From there you’ll head west to County Mayo, spending two nights at the esteemed Mount Falcon Estate where you’ll participate in a hawk walk and learn about these wondrous birds of prey. Visit Achill Island, or climb Croagh Patrick – the beauty of Ireland’s northwest is yours to discover.

Next, it is time to head south through Galway to the countryside of County Clare, where the Cliffs of Moher sweep into the ocean and the beauty of the Burren is a sight to behold. A night at a guesthouse there before moving further south, this time to the Kingdom of Kerry. Based in Killarney, you’ll be in a prime location to explore the towns, the coastline, the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula, and along the way, you’ll enjoy some Irish whiskey paired with chocolate – the ultimate combination!

Your self-guided tour will bring you north to Kilkenny where you will overnight at the boutique Pembroke hotel before continuing back towards Dublin through Wicklow, the Garden of Ireland, to spend your last night in an authentic manor house before flying home.

"Wonderful trip in Iceland"

Paula S.

We had a wonderful trip. The hotels were lovely with excellent restaurants and very attentive staff. The location in Reykjavik was perfect. Lots of shops and restaurants and the bus stop within a few blocks. 


We enjoyed all of the tours very much, especially the glacier hike and zodiac boat iceberg tour. 


Everywhere we went was filled with gorgeous scenery. It’s sort of like Scotland and Hawaii combined. 

"Amazing Ireland Vacation"

Christine W.

Colorado

I started planning my trip in May of 2019, planning to budget out and get a good idea of what a 2 week trip to Ireland would cost. Josi was incredible in helping me get a cost outlined early on, and when 2020 hit and things were changing by the week we were able to plan some things out further. Come the month before my vacation we had all the excursions and sightseeing outlined, everything set, and I was able to have an amazing experience in Ireland. I hope to go back again and see more of what I only got a sampling of.

"Anniversary in the Rockies"

Everything was great. The upgrade from a hotel room to a townhouse was excellent. I loved the Yellowstone tour and the Grand Teton tour. Spring Creek Ranch was the best place to stay.  Disappointed that two tours were cancelled.

"Family vacation in Ireland"

Peter D.

Texas

The six of us truly enjoyed our 12-day family vacation, and appreciated the planning effort and support we received from Authenticvacations. Everything went smoothly. Renting cars and driving on the left side of very narrow roads in Ireland may not be for everybody, but we had drivers with prior experience in our group and for us it worked out great. We are looking forward to planning more trips in the future. Thanks Michaela.

We couldn’t have asked for a better planned adventure! Our wedding was breathtaking on the Cliffs of Moher and we had the best accommodations. I am forever grateful to Authentic Vacations and their wonderful travel agents Maggie and Lizzie!

"Love Ireland!"

Kathren A.

Ireland

Love Ireland I will be going back. Still a lot of places there to explore. Loved doing the little towns and B&B's. All my landladies where exceptional! Helpful. Grand breakfast every morning. Beautiful country. The Cliffs of Moher! Spent three hours there walked 6 miles. Took 75 pictures. The hardest part deciding which picture I want blown up!
