Where it all started

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 are also active in the tour operators community, being members of the National Tour Association and a founding member of Agricultural Tour Operators International.
