Our processes are simple. Your designated tour designer will handle every aspect of your trip. All you have to do is turn up and enjoy the experience. From your initial enquiry, you will be assigned a designated tour designer who will ask some essential questions, such as:
Once all the necessary information has been collected, your tour designer will create a detailed draft itinerary using beautiful imagery. You then have the opportunity to make suggestions and amendments until we have a final version of the itinerary, at which point our reservations team will act quickly. The first protocol is to reserve hotels for your preferred dates, book all excursions, assign your driver and vehicle. Our team will then send you a booking confirmation and you can rest assured that on arrival all reservations will be in place.
This depends on a number of factors, including tour duration, standard of hotel, activities, and time of travel. However, a 7-day tour with 4-star hotel accommodation starts at £2000 per head. Naturally the higher the number of people travelling = cost per person is reduced.
Tipping is not mandatory in Ireland, and you only tip for personal services, such as restaurant service or golf caddies. The average tipping rate for these sorts of services is about 10%.
We suggest visiting Ireland between April and September. The weather is drier and warmer in spring and summer. May or June are good months to visit, the weather will be warm (warm for Ireland) but it will not be as busy as July and August.
Our clients generally land in Dublin, from which all regions are easily accessible. Alternatively, Shannon airport is a good option if you are travelling to the west or south-west of the country.
Yes, we have a sister company, Luxury Scotland Tours, which specialises in bespoke Scottish tour itineraries. It is very common for us to create Scotland and Ireland tours for our clients.
