    We are excited to introduce our new collection of Luxury Group Tours.

    With a history you can see and feel dating back thousands of years, the Ireland you will explore mixes unique landscapes, castles and cathedrals with world renown literature and a modern culture of fine food and sophisticated hospitality. 


    Welcome to Ireland! Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your city center hotel.
    Ireland is the land of legends, where history presents itself everywhere and where natural delights very much exist: from the peninsulas of the southwest to the wildness of Donegal County. You will be welcomed to your hotel with an evening reception and a traditional dinner.

    After breakfast, enjoy a guided tour of Dublin, a city with a big personality.

    For your final day in Dublin, you will visit the famous Guinness Storehouse. The journey begins at the bottom of the world's largest pint glass and continues up through seven floors filled with interactive experience that will show you the Irish long brewing heritage.

    Then you will discover the capital with an evening food tour that will take you to some of the best pubs and restaurants in Dublin, where you will learn a bit more about the culture, cuisine and history of this lively, charming city.

Belfast is a city with an unique history, exciting events and good food. 

    Giant's Causeway - Bushmills
    After breakfast, you will drive north through the Antrim Coast and Glens and then go for a walk across Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. You will also see Giant's Causeway, the highlight of the day.

Continue with a visit to the World's Oldest Whiskey Distillery: Bushmills. Enjoy a perfect drop of whiskey before returning to your hotel.

    Belfast - Omagh
    You cannot leave Belfast without exploring the award-winning Titanic Museum. Trace the tragic story of the Titanic ship, discover the passion and pride of those who designed and build it and go back in time to when the city was at the height of its powers. Then you will be heading west to experience the Irish life as it was centuries ago, with a visit to the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh.

    The West Wing Crom Castle - Kylemore
    Today you will have a long day ahead. First stop is The West Wing Crom Castle, where his Lordship himself will offer you a tour.
