Bus Tours of Ireland - How it Works

If this is your first time on a Coach Tour of Ireland then we thought we'd put together a little section explaining how it all works. As always though if you've any questions please just get in touch!

So, How do these Ireland Coach Tours work?

Your Driver-Guide (one person) (one person) would meet you at Dublin Airport and then will be with you for the duration of your Irish Tour.

We will have everything pre-arranged for you - all your accommodation, excursions, entrance to attractions and more, all included in your vacation package. Your Driver-Guide (one person) will take you and your fellow passengers across Ireland in the luxury coach, showing you the most iconic sights, and some hidden secrets too.

What's Included?

Our packages are very inclusive, and include all of the below:

  • Airport Transfers from Dublin Airport
  • All Accommodation
  • All travel with your driver / guide (one person)
  • Full Irish Breakfast every morning
  • All Evening Meals (3 courses, with a choice on each course)
  • All excursions including entrance to all the attractions

Having so much included creates a wonderfully good value vacation for you.

For the exact details please do see the itinerary in question, each one has a list of exactly what's included.

What's the Advantage of booking onto a Bus Tour of Ireland?

There are many, but here's a few of the main benefits of selecting a coach tour for your Irish vacation:

Great Value

Our buying power, and the fact that you are sharing the coach with other travellers, means that you get the very best in value. Try comparing us to our rivals and you'll see our very inclusive packages are the best in price.

Predictable Costs for your Irish Vacation

Our tours are very inclusive, with the prices including all accommodation, travel, excursions, entrance to attractions, all breakfasts & evening meals and much more. This makes both for fantastic value compared to purchasing all that yourself, and for easy budgeting as you know what your Irish vacation will cost you.

The company did a wonderful job creating a full itinerary, so my family was able to see a great deal on our trip. The vehicle used was very comfortable. Our driver was exceptionally professional and made our trip amazing from start to finish. All the hotels we stayed in were superb. I did a lot of research for possible tour options in Ireland and am very pleased with the exceptional quality and value of service my family received ...”

Al and Jan G

We could not have been more pleased with our trip to Ireland and owe much of that to My Ireland Tours. They helped make us feel so welcome to Ireland... We also liked that the pace of the tour was more relaxed and we didn't feel rushed as we thought we might on a tour. Also, our driver was very knowledgeable, humorous, extremely helpful, and a good singer to boot! ... Eight thumbs up from this family of four!...”

We just returned from our 9 day Iconic Scenes of Ireland tour and it was absolutely fantastic! We saw so much of the beautiful country, our hotels and meals were good, and our bus driver, Tom, was very knowledgeable about the sights we saw. Having a small group enabled us to spend more time at the places. I definitely recommend this tour!!...”

The trip was outstanding, ranging from the spectacular views, historic sites and service from the tour company, Our excellent driver/guide Brendan contributed to much of the excitement and success of our journey, his deep knowledge of Ireland and its past as well as his patient heart with our crew of fun Canadians made it a wonderful experience... One of my top experiences within my travel life!...”
