It can take a lot of time and effort to work out your itinerary for days out around Ireland. It can be stressful too, as you worry about what you might miss out on, and just how much you can comfortably fit into one day. We can help to take the stress out of planning your trip. Using our extensive, island-wide experience and expertise, we have devised practical and engaging itineraries for fantastic routes around some of Ireland’s most historically rich and breathtaking areas.
We often see road trip itineraries for Ireland that are just a checklist of the big mega-sites. Sometimes they are so disconnected and shallow that you’d be forgiven for wondering if some of them have been created by people who have never even been to Ireland! They often go from Dublin to Galway to the Cliffs of Moher to the Rock of Cashel to Cork, all in a day. This makes for a poor experience for the visitor who is stuck in the car on endless motorways and roads, hurtling past incredible monuments right and left as they tick the next box.
We take a different approach, we recommend slowing down, going deeper and immersing yourself in a particular area to really get a feel for the stories and landscapes. We of course include the big iconic sites, but we also suggest some of the quieter more intimate spots where you can get under the skin of this story-filled country. So join us if you want to ensure that you’ve seen the best of Ireland, or you want to have a sprawling medieval abbey all to yourself.
Researched and developed by working archaeologists who understand and love Ireland, our itineraries incorporate the unmissable sites alongside the really special places only locals know about. Each stop along the way is supplied with background information and tips to help you get the most out of your experience. We also include coordinates for every site to make sure you never have to get lost. Unless you want to, of course!
