NEW Visual Storytelling

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

National treasures and hidden wonders are the order of the day with this unmissable tour of Iconic and Unexpected Ireland.

This most exclusive of Ireland vacations begins in Ireland’s capital, Dublin, where your personal driver will introduce you to the highlights of Dublin’s fair city, before whisking you to the sumptuous surrounds of your overnight accommodation at the five-star Westbury Hotel. Taking time to relax after your flight, you will enjoy a National College of Art and Design-inspired Afternoon Tea, where each exquisite pastry is a true work of art. Your Dublin journey continues with a unique Dublin Tenement Tour and a trip to the iconic Guinness Storehouse, before concluding with a slap-up pub meal in Dublin’s Cultural Quarter, Temple Bar.

From Dublin to the ‘Rebel County’ of Cork, where you will overnight in the stately surrounds of three-hundred-year-old Longueville House, taking in en route sightseeing at the Rock of Cashel and Blarney Castle. While at Longueville, you will enjoy a celebrated field-to-fork dining experience, while also sampling Longueville’s artisanal cider via an Orchard Walk and Distillery Tour.

The ‘Kingdom’ of Kerry awaits, where you will enjoy a wealth of truly unique experiences in beautiful Killarney, while staying in the lush green surrounds of the four-star Lake Hotel. Discover the spectacular Ring of Kerry, indulge in a Seaweed Tasting Tour, and travel to Dingle to partake in a traditional Irish cooking course at the Dingle Cookery School.

The final leg of your journey takes you to the ruggedly charming part of the Wild Atlantic Way. With Connemara as your base, you will explore the area’s many attractions, including the truly special Great Irish Famine memorial that is The Lost Valley.

Your vacation concludes in County Clare, with a fine-dining feast and overnight stay at the five-star Dromoland Castle.

"Couple's Vacation in Wales"

Kellie H.


We have just booked our 3rd trip with Lauren to Wales next summer and we expect that as usual it will be amazing. Lauren has previously sent my husband and I to Ireland and Scotland and we know that with her everything will go absolutely perfect. She really goes above and beyond to tailor our trips to our personalities and she knows what we like to do. Every hotel or B&B we've stayed in have been perfect. We have never worried about logistics etc... It is so wonderful to go on a trip and know that when you get there absolutely everything is taken care of and all there is left to do is enjoy! We will continue to call upon Lauren for future vacations and cannot wait for our next adventure!

"Awesome Yellowstone Vacation"

Duane K.

Thank you, Josi! What a wonderful trip it was. I cannot tell you how happy we are you made dinner reservations. We ate at all the best spots, but we watched them turn away customer after customer because they were over booked. Great weather! It snowed a bit the day we arrived, and was in the 70’s/80’s and sunny the rest of the time. Just beautiful. Did you order the weather too? Spring Creek was great. The Yellowstone tour was awesome (Bison, Deer, Antelope, Bear, Elk, Moose). Paddleboard company was great. Also, the Hotel in Salt Lake is 5 star. I’ve stayed in the nicest hotels in New York, Chicago, LA and this one is a classic. My appreciation to you!

"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"



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"


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 O.


Just want to say a big thank you to Anna 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.

"Ireland birthday trip"

Stephanie S.


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.
