NEW AUTHENTIC AMERICA

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

The west of Ireland is secluded, wild, and authentically Irish—it’s ideal for a romantic escape. Imagine it. Walking through legendary County Clare, you come upon castle ruins or ancient walls. You stand in wonder at the Cliffs of Moher. Board a ferry to the Aran Islands, steeped in ancient culture. Spontaneity is the flame that fuels romance, and you have a rental car. Pullover and feel the glow.

Your boutique lodgings are cozy—you’ll be pampered. Spend your first two nights in Doolin, a traditional village. The colors pop, and music makes the night sing. Get into a pub with locals. Enjoy fresh food, songs, and the congenial atmosphere of a boisterous family gathering. Let yourself go with the beat!

Your next three nights are spent in a Killarney Lakeside setting. Time slips away as you gaze at out at the spectacular landscape. We’ve arranged a horse and carriage ride through the national park—breathe the wonder. We’ve also lined up an unforgettable falconry experience for you. While in Killarney, drive two of Ireland's most famous coastal roads; the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. Go where your heart leads you.

Your final night is spent in Bunratty. Walk the castle grounds, have a feast fit for a king, and amble through the folk park. This vacation is the stuff memories are made of. We’ll take care of the details. You bring your romantic inclinations to Ireland. And smile.

Let us customize this for 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"

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

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.

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.
