What are Leisure Tours of Ireland?

Our Leisure Tours are escorted travel solutions for tour groups heading to Ireland. These inclusive tours can include Accommodation, Attractions, Transport with Driver-Guide or Driver & Tour Manager, and Meals, though each one is fully customized and can be tailored to your exacting requirements. Run at your own pace, leisure tours of Ireland include plenty of time to explore on your own while experiencing Ireland. Leisure tours often include some of the most iconic sights like the Cliffs of Moher, the Guinness Storehouse, the Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle & more in one tour of Ireland.

We listen, and get to know the needs and desires of your clients, and only then we will go and design the perfect unique tour for your group.

Across our website we mention all sorts of ideas for accommodation, attractions, technical visits to see, transport and much more. Please though do take all of these are just concepts to get your ideas flowing. When it comes to it we always start with a blank piece of paper and a discussion with you, and you can rest assured that we will work tirelessly to design and execute the ideal itinerary for your clients.

Some Ideas for Your Clients Leisure Tour of Ireland

As Ireland's premier Destination Management Company (DMC) we have helped plan tour itineraries for an infinite number of groups. This is why we have decided to put together a summary of some of the most popular leisure tour ideas and also some of our personal favourites. Please do only take these as ideas and a means of sparking your own ideas of what you personally would like to do and see during your leisure tour.

A day in County Clare organised by DMC in Ireland, Discover Ireland Tours

A day in County Clare

For many of our tour groups, a Day in County Clare is up there with the highlight of their tour and perhaps the most scenic part of an Irish tour. County Clare is home to the spectacular and infamous Cliffs of Moher and the barren but yet beautiful landscape of the Burren with its fantastic limestone plateaus. The Cliffs of Moher stretch for 8km along the Atlantic Coast of County Clare and reach up to 215m high.

However, it is there ruggedness, green landscape and Atlantic Ocean backdrop that appeals most. They really are a sight to behold. The region also has an impressive flora and fauna profile. The Burren is home to some of the rarest plants in the world. It is always the only place in Europe that you will find Arctic Alpine and Mediterranean plants growing together in unity. The Aillwee Caves are also in close proximity and are worth a visit.

As a destination management company, we can organise a trip to Ireland's ancient east

Ireland's Ancient East

Travel through time and visit Ireland's Ancient East where you will hear stories of Ireland's past and experience Ireland's deepest traditions. This is Ireland's most mystical journey where behind every small green field and narrow country lane there is a tale to tell. In Ireland's Ancient East this is where you will truly uncover Ireland's way of the past. Visit places like Hill of Tara, Rock of Cashel, Cobh- where the final 123 passengers boarded the Titanic, and the Waterford Viking Triangle. Visit heart-warming less travelled places like the Proposal Stones in Carlingford Lough.

Centuries ago these rocks where lovers sat were believed to be close to fairy trees and forts. If the couple were then to get married at some stage then the fairies were said to bring you luck and protection for the rest of your lives together. Revisit this romantic Irish tradition right by the waters edge at Carlingford Lough Proposal Stones. It is important to remember these are just ideas to give us a basis of what you might be interested in. Every tour is tailored to your requirements and scheduled at your own pace.

Discover the world renowned wild Atlantic way

Discover the acclaimed Wild Atlantic Way

Discover the beauty of Ireland's West Coast and the adventurous path of the Wild Atlantic Way. Travel the windy coastal roads overlooking Ireland's rugged coastline as the waves erode the coastline. On the way visit Ireland's charismatic fishing villages and experience the tranquillity of the small harbour towns as they nestle tucked away from Ireland's fierce exposure to the Atlantic.

The Wild Atlantic Way is one of the most unique and beautiful tour routes in the world and was chosen for the final scene in the latest Star Wars Movie. Skellig Michael where the movie was shot is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
