Private tours are Fun, Bespoke and At Your Leisure...

There are many great reasons to travel around Ireland with Ireland – At Your Leisure! Getting to know Richard, your tour guide is one of the best parts. He is full of fun, information and always there to look after your every need. Here are a few more advantages to choosing a private tour, for two up to seven passengers, compared to a larger group tour.

Why Pick a Private Tour?

  1. Reduced Stress: Private tours alleviate the stress of navigating unfamiliar roads, parking, and figuring out directions. Your driver or guide will take care of all the logistics, allowing you to relax and fully immerse yourself in the experience. This can be particularly advantageous in Ireland, where driving on narrow, winding roads can be challenging for visitors. Remember this is your HOLIDAY!
  2. Flexibility: With a private tour, you have the freedom to create a personalized itinerary and stop wherever and whenever you like. This flexibility allows you to explore off-the-beaten-path destinations, spend more time at places that interest you, and adjust the schedule according to your preferences.
  3. Bespoke: Private tours can be tailored to your specific interests and preferences. You can work closely with the tour operator or guide to design an itinerary that aligns with your desires. Whether you want to focus on historical sites, natural landscapes, cultural experiences, or all of the above, a private tour allows for customization to meet your needs.
  4. Intimacy and Comfort: Travelling in a smaller group provides a more intimate and personal experience. You can enjoy the company of your close friends or family without the presence of strangers. Additionally, if you're traveling with up to seven passengers, the spaciousness of our Mercedes V-Class 8-seater ensures everyone has plenty of room to relax and enjoy the journey comfortably.
  5. Fun and Knowledgeable Guide: Our Private tours of Ireland are run by Richard, who can provide you with an in-depth knowledge about the destinations, history, culture, and local stories while having fun along the way. The best part is he knows everyone and will talk to anyone! Having a guide exclusively for your group allows for a more interactive and personalized experience, as they can cater to all your questions and interests throughout the tour.
  6. Efficient Time Management: Since private tours are designed specifically for your group, you can make the most of your time by avoiding unnecessary stops or attractions that may not interest you. The tour can be optimized to include the sights and activities that are most important to you, maximizing your enjoyment and minimizing time spent on things that don't align with your preferences.
  7. Enhanced Local Interactions: With a private tour of Ireland, you may have more opportunities to interact with locals, whether it's engaging in conversations with Richard, meeting small-scale artisan producers, or visiting local businesses off the typical tourist path. This can provide a deeper understanding of the local culture and traditions of Ireland.
