A private guided tour and all-round great experience for you and anyone in your group who comes along for the journey.

Tour Duration: 5 Days

You take the reins and full advantage of our tour flexibility, below is just a sample, you can linger longer in places which appeal to you and skip through anywhere that doesn’t, you choose.

We can also start and finish our multi-day tours anywhere in Ireland that suits you, this sample itinerary can be tweaked accordingly.

To kick off this five-day insight into the beautiful, historic and culturally rich North of Ireland you will leave from Dublin upon arrival and embark immediately towards Belfast. Here, in the North’s capital you will enter the Titanic Experience and take a Black Taxi Tour over the course of your first day. Both are captivating escapades and make a great start to your tour. On the first night you will of course stay in Belfast City and waking up the next morning you will undertake the trip to Derry taking in the Antrim coastline along the way. Home to a phenomenon of folklore in the Giant’s Causeway, a test for the brave in Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and an enthralling site for Game of Thrones fans in the Dark Hedges of Ballintroy. After such a day the second night’s rest in Derry is well deserved, but rising on the third day you will once again be in for a magnificent travel down through the start of the Wild Atlantic Way Drive to meet with the highest cliffs in the country entitled Slieve League and perfect for an outstanding snapshot to show friends back home. A night in Donegal is what awaits after this, here we have planned a trip to a graveyard at Drumcliffe to see the famed burial place of W.B. Yeats and then a short jaunt to Strand Hill, an Irish seaside town before rounding off the fourth day with Glencar Waterfall and the National Museum of Ireland Country Life. All of this will bring you to your final overnight anchoring point in Galway City, after resting here your final day with us is sure to be a great one as you embark upon the Kinvara coastal drive to reach Ireland’s number one attraction, the Cliffs of Moher. Then after a quick picture stop in Bunratty and an outstanding bite to eat in Doolin, a return to Dublin for your final drop-off is the last step. Here we will leave you back where you began to undertake whatever next journey of your own you may have in store, and may it be a great one!

Day 1

On your first day, leaving from Dublin we will head directly North. Reaching Belfast, Northern Ireland’s capital city, with its world class museums, rich history varied art scene, acres of parkland and an iconic coastline it is no wonder it is one of the coolest cities in Europe to visit. Belfast was the birthplace of the RMS Titanic and on the site of the former shipyard where it was originally built is now home to The Titanic Experience, a world class visitor attraction which retells the story from her conception through to her maiden voyage and subsequent place in history. This iconic building and visitor centre with interactive features really does bring you on the most insightful journey you will ever experience, take your time to fully immerse yourself in this very famous piece of history, a day to remember for sure. Next on the agenda for this day is a Black Taxi Tour of the city, on which you will journey around in a classical trademark vehicle and be sure to have plenty of giggles all while taking in the historical facts. A truly great way to round off your initial day before spending the night in Belfast city.

Day 2

For your second day, en route to Derry, you will make your way along the rugged Antrim coastline. Home to the Giant’s Causeway, an anomalous pattern of columns of rock jutting up from the sea said to be the creation of two feuding giants of times past trying to make their way to each other over the water, as one lived in Ireland and the other in Scotland you see to settle their differences. This coastline also harbours Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, a test for the bravest of souls, this shaky crossing positions you high above the water below as you make your way along. Certainly, an exhilarating experience! Finally, along this patch of winding road you will meet Ballintroy Harbour, a paradise for any Game of Thrones fans on tour, this area was used for filming scenes in the ‘Iron Islands’ as well as being home to the dark hedges from the series. After this to round out the day, your second overnight will be in Derry, a city once greatly impacted by the British attempt to introduce Protestantism into Ireland and for this reason, quite steeped in history.

Day 3

Taking on the beginning of the Wild Atlantic Way from the perspective of the North-West of Ireland is what will kick off the third of your five days. This coastal route, being one of the longest in the world at an astounding 1,600 miles (2,600km) long, will introduce itself to you as it guides you along its naturally beautifully and picturesque beginning to the awe-inspiring Slieve League. This is the name given to a series of cliffs which at their highest, amount to a belittling three times the height of our other cliffs, the most famed attraction we possess, those of The Cliffs of Moher! Standing atop these will place you on top of the world and is sure to blow you away, so afterwards, when all the pictures have been taken with the wild Atlantic Ocean at your back, a rest is certainly well-deserved. Sit back and relax as we whisk you away to your next staying point and another new city to explore, Donegal.

Day 4

Waking rested and ready to tackle day four we will first travel to a graveyard in Drumcliffe, home to the burial place of one W.B. Yeats, a renowned Irish poet, dramatist and writer who stood as one of the foremost figures in 20th Century literature. In this area there also stands the oldest Celtic cross in Ireland, believed to have been erected around the 7th or 8th Century, which you may behold. Next, it’s on to Strand Hill a quaint Irish seaside village where lunch is always great. With its colourful shopfronts and narrow streets, this place surely is the perfect example of a small tranquil Irish town in the countryside. Following on from this it’s straight back to the sights, as you will be taken to see Glencar waterfall, a vertical drop of 50-feet over which water cascades for you to take in and photograph. After this it’s onto the final attraction of day four, the National Museum of Ireland Country Life where you will be brought through the ins and outs of life as a man tending to his land in this West portion of Ireland. To conclude you will end up in Galway, your last overnight destination. Last but not least that is, as Galway City serves as ‘Ireland’s Cultural Heart’ and allows for a great evening’s exploration of places such as Eyre Square, Shop Street, Spanish Arch and the many castles and cathedrals which it is home to. All this mixed with the vibrant and varied music scene, brought about by the presence of street performers in plentiful numbers makes Galway the perfect place for your conclusive stay.

Day 5

And so it is in high spirits that you will wave goodbye to Galway city on the following morning to undertake the planned events of day five. These being the undertaking of the Kinvara Coastal Drive to reach the Burren, a place of almost lunar-like appearance for its otherworldly landscape once thought to have been an underwater coral reef millions of years ago but now thankfully positioned firmly above sea-level for you to take in. It’s indigenous flowers act as little specks of beauty among the miles of harsh terrain, all culminating to bring you to what are known as the ‘mini cliffs’ like a smaller version of their much larger counterpart a couple of miles down the road, these rock formations along an especially photogenic patch of coast allow for photographs also and serve as somewhat of a warmup for what is to come once you reach Ireland’s number one attraction, the Cliffs of Moher. Departing from these ‘mini cliffs’ a stop in Fitzpatrick’s in Doolin comes first, a bar and restaurant known for their stunning food and personal craft ‘Dooliner’, of which a pint is essential. Finally, leaving here we head for the Cliffs of Moher. Testament to the power of nature, these behemoths stand at 700 feet (213 metres) tall. With the picturesque blue background of the Atlantic lapping at their base, these truly mark a beautiful corner of the planet. A boat tour can also be organised to gaze up at the cliffs from below too offering another photo-angle. Then, it’s off to Bunratty Castle, a fifteenth-century structure with which a photo stop can be squeezed in. Finally, when all is said and done, it’s back across the country to Dublin for the drop off which marks the end of your touring experience. This is the point where we wave our goodbyes and let you head off on your next adventure whatever that may be and hope on seeing you again soon!
