Northern and North-western Ireland has so much to offer as one of the most varied, captivating and beautiful regions in Western Europe.
From the rugged wilderness of Donegal to the iconic Giants Causeway, the outstanding natural beauty of the Glens and beaches of Antrim and the rich history of Belfast and Derry cities, you will visit places that other tourists simply wouldn’t reach.
This Northern Ireland tour is a wonderful mix of magnificent scenery, fresh Irish country air, fascinating local culture and history and not forgetting, lots of laughs. Our small group sizes allow for a lot of flexibility, so every trip is different and molded to suit you and your fellow passengers.
Our small groups also mean that we can stay in smaller out-of-the-way hotels, which provide a warm friendly welcome and first class accommodation. All rooms have private bathrooms and most rooms have TVs and tea and coffee making facilities.
