With 28 years of experience offering tours of Ireland, we have the knowledge, the experience and the local contacts to design the perfect accommodation package for your vacation.

We are very selective in getting just the right accommodation for each specific tour and we are very proud of the selection of hotels we have put together. Some of these hotels are family-owned, just like ourselves, and we have a long standing relationship with them all.

Thursday's Itinerary

After some much needed sleep and a hearty full Irish breakfast we will depart for Northern Ireland also referred to as the six counties or Ulster. The province of Northern Ireland was created with the partition of the island of Ireland in 1921.

Travelling North your route today will take you through County Meath and County Louth towards your destination of Belfast, the only city in Ireland to fully experience the Industrial Revolution. Linen, rope making, tobacco and most famously ship building including the building of the Titanic on the Harland and Wolff shipyard were the main industries. The Troubles took their toll on the economic life of Belfast but the past fifteen years of peace have returned much prosperity while the genuine friendliness of the city never left.

On arrival in Belfast visit Titanic Belfast which is the world's largest Titanic themed visitor attraction located on the very slipways where she was built at the heart of Belfast.

In the afternoon you will be joined by a specialised local Belfast City Guide to see and hear all about the history of this once troubled city including the murals of the Loyalist Shankill Road and Nationalist Falls Road.

Check into Dukes at Queens Hotel in Belfast City. Tonight you will dine in the Dukes at Queens Hotel.

This morning you will depart for the historic walled city of Derry. The city fortifications are among the best-preserved in Europe and were completed in 1618 to defend the city from Gaelic chieftains in Donegal.

Our route today will take you via the spectacular Antrim Coastal Route via the villages of Ballygalley, Carnlough, Cushendall and Cushendun to Ballycastle. Continue onto Bushmills via The Dark Hedges a haunting avenue of serpentine beech trees near Armoy, County Antrim famous for the Game of Thrones TV Series.

Here you will visit the Old Bushmills Distillery, the oldest licensed distillery in the world for a whiskey tasting. Its grant to distil was given in 1608 but it is believed that spirit was probably made here 200 years before that!

Further north on the coast you will visit The Giant's Causeway, the subject of many legends and where an estimated 37,000 basalt columns extend from cliffs down into the sea.

Next cross the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge which spans an eighty-foot-deep chasm connecting Rock Island to the mainland. Suspended almost 100 ft (30 m) above sea level, the rope bridge was first erected by salmon fishermen 350 years ago.

The "BEST" that we could hoped for! My wife and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary during the Deluxe Castle Tour. The tours, accommodations, the food, and our tour guide Tom were outstanding! Every day was a new treat with the different tours and accommodations. Only having 26 people on the tour was perfect size, plenty of room to spread out on the bus. We made friends for life and memories we will cherish forever.

We had an amazing tour of Ireland on the 10-day Iconic Scenes itinerary. Kristel, in the office, was so helpful with questions and guidance. With a smaller bus holding only 40 people and only 26 people on the tour, this allowed the group to spread out get to know each other. From the time he picked us up at the Dublin airport to the time he dropped us off to go home, our driver/guide, Tom Lavin, handled every detail with ease and professionalism.
