Discover Ireland Tours started as a ground handling agent for Ireland back in 1989, under the name "Educational Tours in Ireland Ltd." Our first specialist areas were student and educational tours of Ireland, especially around the agricultural sector.
Over the years the company has steadily grown to become one the leading inbound tour operators Ireland has to offer. Our range of services has grown, and we now offer a large and diverse range of tours, including multi-country tours combining Ireland with Scotland, England & Wales and an array of specialisms along with some of Ireland's best leisure and cultural tours.
We focus on the business-to-business market, being the behind-the-scenes ground handling agent for many overseas tour operators. Our clients include a diverse range of tour operators from across the world, being their handling agent for Ireland. Our work is behind the scenes providing the tours for these companies.
We are based just outside the city of Cork, which is on the south coast of Ireland. Our close-knit team are here to help you and answer any questions you might have - please just ask.
Over the past 28 years our range of contacts and relationships with suppliers right across Ireland has grown and grown. Today we occupy the enviable position as one of Ireland's best connected destination management companies. Our list of contacts is huge & diverse, encompassing a whole range of areas. If your group would like to try its hand at turf cutting, perhaps watch a sheepdog trial, or climb a lighthouse then we have the contacts.
This huge range of contacts also includes specialist and technical visits, with a market leading array of contacts in the diverse range of industries, making us very well positioned to provide the best specialist tours Ireland has to offer.
Over these years we have slowly built closer and closer relationships with suppliers, and as we have grown to one of Ireland's leading inbound tour operators with large volumes of tours going year-round, we can command some of the very best rates possible.
