Love, love, love! I am so happy that my husband Justin and I found this tour company. We just got back from the Ancient Ireland tour and all I can say is that it was the very best decision we could have made... we are already thinking about returning with family and taking up all 8 seats next time :). We also lucked out with an AMAZING driver, Tom Lavin, and he really made this trip special. He loves Ireland and is so knowledgeable... kind, informative and just a great person.

Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy the Ride! Our "MIT" started in Dublin (9/20-29) and ended in Belfast and what an adventure we had. The pace was extremely adequate for our age (50+) group. Do the Irish loop when you are able as some of the touristy attractions require moderate walking/climbing at times. There were no headaches on deciding where we were going, parking hassles or problems to be had. Our timeframe was well planned by MIT and accommodated our schedules...

My family had an absolutely incredible experience doing a week-long private tour with My Ireland Tour from the wonderful guidance that we received from Eric and team to develop our perfect itinerary to our amazing driver-guide Tony who become part of our family during the week that we spent with him.

We just returned from 10 wonderful days in southern Ireland. Our driver Brian was a gem. The planned sites as well as a few unplanned side trips were great. Even the weather cooperated with 10 days of dry warmth. We started in Dublin, went to the far west, south to Killarney, thru Cork and back for a few days in Dublin. Could have had a little more free time to visit some more pubs but overall I think everyone on our small, modern bus (only 22 people) enjoyed themselves.

Fantastic trip!! I have travelled extensively (averaging 3 months a year) and this was one of the best tours ever. The guide made the difference. Tony was the best guide I have had anywhere. Totally knowledgeable about virtually everything in Ireland down to the last date and a born entertainer! He went out of his way to make this the best trip for each of us. The hotels were very good and located in the best places. I will return and will request Tony every time. Highly recommend this tour to anyone really interested in learning about Ireland in a fun way.

We took the Iconic Tour in October. I can't speak more highly of our experience. Our guide, Tony, was exceptional. He was well informed, patient, humorous. The hotels were first class and the food was excellent. The hours of the day were well planned. We never felt bored or rushed. Our baggage was taken to and from the room in a seamless manner, leaving us time to relax in the morning and evenings. The places visited were always interesting, with no waiting. Local guides hired to lead our group were very knowledgable and enthusiastic. We will return for another tour.

Eric and Kristel were quick to answer any questions I had leading up to the trip and Tom, our driver-guide, was friendly, professional, and conscientious of what everyone was looking for in their vacation. As a solo female traveller, I never once felt unsafe or left behind. The tour really gave me a more detailed sense of Irish history, and how it's brought them to be the country they are today.

Dingle Special Tour 27th June 2017 A one-off tour exploring this unique peninsula

For the tour starting on 27th June 2017 we are doing a special Dingle itinerary. We've swapped touring the Ring of Kerry for touring the Dingle peninsula.

Ruggedly beautiful, the Dingle Peninsula typifies everything the Wild Atlantic Way was designed around. Wild and beautiful countryside, the Atlantic Ocean crashing directly onto the rugged coastline, quiet and completely unspoiled villages that feel not only a different country but a different century to the rest of the world.

On days 4 and 5 instead of staying in Killarney you would be staying in Castlewood House in the quaint fishing village of Dingle.

Not sure which to pick - Killarney and touring the Ring of Kerry, or Dingle and touring the Dingle Peninsula? Just get in touch, we would be only too happy to chat about the similarities and differences of 2 wonderful options (both are incredible parts of Ireland, you will not be disappointed which ever one you choose).
