Latest Travel Updates: RESERVATION AND TRAVEL ASSISTANCE

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 Ireland’s oldest pub, dating back to Viking times.

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 a true Belfast institution, the Europa Hotel. 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 another historic property, the 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 traditional 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.

"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.
