Tour Accommodation Stay in real Irish Castles

Stay in authentic Irish castles on this Castles and Backroads Tour of Ireland. We are very proud of the range of luxury accommodation we have put together for this unique journey. These castle hotels are family-owned, just like ourselves, and we have a long standing relationship with all the accommodation providers we use.

We know and trust the hotels we use for our tours, and we choose them carefully based not only on their star rating, but also on their location, service, value and character. With 29 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 in Ireland.

Luxury Transport

On a tour vacation, the journey can be just as important as the destination. That's why our vehicles are all of the highest standards both in terms of luxury and reliability. For our tour vehicles we use 34-seater coaches, but limit the number of participants to 26. This gives you more space to spread out, relax and enjoy the wonderous scenery. This Smaller Group Size is a core principle in our tours.

  • Extra space to spread out
  • Tinted Windows
  • Panoramic Outlook
  • Air Conditioning
  • On-board Fridges
  • On-board Toilet Facilities

Please note: The Coach shown here is one of four 34 Seater Coaches we use on our Max. 26 Guest Tours. For any reason, should one of these become unavailable for your tour we will endeavour to provide you with an equally luxurious and comfortable touring vehicle.

Some of the dyes used were imported from as far as the Middle East.

The Guinness Storehouse at St. James's Gate for a tour of the world famous brewery and afterwards enjoy a perfect pint of Guinness in the Gravity Bar, which is located at the top of a glass tower that commands spectacular views of Dublin City and County in every direction.

In the afternoon depart for Kinnitty Castle in the foothills of the Slieve Bloom Mountains in County Offaly in the Hidden Heartlands of Ireland. This unique castle has had a long & turbulent history from the Norman’s in the 12th century to its destruction by Republican Forces in 1922 to the present day. It now stands as an intimate and cosy castle hotel.

Tonight you will overnight & dine in Kinnitty Castle. After dinner you might like to retire to the Dungeon Bar for a nightcap before bed.

Take time to stroll the medieval streets of Kilkenny and you might want to visit the Kilkenny Design Centre or take time for a pint of Smithwicks, an Irish Red Ale brewed in Kilkenny.

Wednesday: Wild Atlantic Way Staying in Abbeyglen Castle Hotel

Wednesday's Itinerary

After some much needed sleep and a hearty full Irish breakfast depart for Abbeyglen Castle majestically set on the Sky Road overlooking the town of Clifden in Connemara in County Galway. Travelling west your route today will take you along the Wild Atlantic Way up the west coast of County Clare and via the famous Galway Bay.

Depart west via County Limerick to County Clare. On the west coast of Ireland you will visit the dramatic 650ft high and 8 kilometre long Cliffs of Moher gazing out on the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean.

You will see the Burren, which is Gaelic for rocky land - an apt name for this vast limestone plateau. In the 1640s, Cromwell's surveyor described it as "a savage land, yielding neither water enough to drown a man, nor tree to hang him, nor soil enough to bury".

Travel on via Galway into the wilds of Connemara and via the villages of Oughterard, Maam Cross and Recess to Clifden.Clifden- the capital of Connemara was founded in 1812 by the High Sheriff of Galway to create a pocket of respectability within the lawlessness of Connemara.

Thursday: ConnemaraStaying in Abbeyglen Castle

Thursday's Itinerary

Today you will tour the sights of wild Connemara famous for its bogs, mountains, lakes and rugged coastline. You will visit Kylemore Abbey, which is nestled at the base of Dúchruach Mountain on the northern shore of Lough Pollacappul, in the heart of the Connemara Mountains. It is regarded as one of Ireland's most romantic buildings. Continue on via Connemara National Park to Leenane (The film location of "The Field" featuring Richard Harris as The Bull McCabe).

At Nancy's Point just outside Leenane Village you will board the "Connemara Lady" for a spectacular 90 minute cruise on Ireland's only fjord. Cruising the sheltered Killary Harbour fjord is the ideal way to take in the dramatic sweep of the landscape, as you pass between the Twelve Bens and the Maam Turk mountains to the South, in County Galway; and the Mweelrea mountains to the North in County Mayo, as well as the views out to the Atlantic at the mouth of the fjord. The fjord's sheltered waters are perfect for mussel farming and you will see the ropes at several points on the fjord. You will also see some circular salmon farms, closer to the shore. Sheep dot the hills and now ramble freely over the remnants of potato ridges which stand testimony to The Great Famine of the 1840's. Return to Abbeyglen Castle via the rugged & lonely Inagh Valley.

Tonight you will overnight & dine in Abbeyglen Castle Hotel. After dinner you might like to take a short stroll into Clifden and enjoy a drink in one of its many fine pubs - E.J Kings, Lowry's or Griffins to name a few!

The small group also made the tour a much more pleasurable experience as you got to spread out on the coach and get to know your fellow travellers in a more relaxed environment. The tour visits and inclusions were awesome and in my opinion the tour as a whole represented fantastic value for money.

The 6 Day Iconic Scenes of Ireland was our first-ever travel tour, and it was wonderful! Martina helped us with planning and booking for days both before and after the tour, and was spot-on with both her attention to detail and the timeliness of her replies. She was a pleasure.

We just returned from our castle tour, and it was far beyond our expectations. Our guide, George Connelly, was so knowledgeable and professional. He took such good care of all 25 of us on the tour at all times. We had gourmet meals each night (which we didn’t expect), and the accommodations were always exceptional.

We recently took a transatlantic cruise from Miami to Ireland and it worked out perfect that the My Ireland Tour 10 day Iconic Tour started the day we docked in Dublin. MIT agreed to pick us up from the cruise port and at the end of the tour dropped us off at the train station so that we could continue on our journey through Ireland. The hotels and food were great (love that Irish soda bread and scones). The scenery was spectacular and we enjoyed the company and conversation of those who toured with us.

We can't say enough great things about our Iconic Scenes of Ireland 10 day tour. Our guide/driver, Nigel O'Connor, was just outstanding. We had a great, small group on our March journey, and Nigel was the perfect host. He has a vast knowledge of the history of this beautiful island and was eager to share it with us. We left Ireland knowing so much about these wonderful Irish people and the beautiful place they live. We urge anyone looking for a truly great experience in Ireland to book the journey with My Ireland Tour. You won't be sad!

What's Included?

See what's Included

Will the tour run?

Yes, like all of our Ireland bus tours our Castles and Backroads Tours are guaranteed. Unlike many rivals there are no minimum numbers for the tours to go ahead. Rest assured: we do not cancel tours or change dates.

Can I extend the tour?

Yes. You can extend this tour of Ireland simply by letting us know what else you would like to do on your vacation to Ireland and we can arrange it for you.

What makes a Small Group Tour Better?

We only run Small Group Tours, with the maximum amount of guests on even our largest tours being just 26. Our Mini Group Tours have even smaller group sizes, being limited to 12 or 8 guests per tour.

Some comparable tours with other companies have have around 50 people per tour, so we thought we should take a minute to explain why we've taken this big step to only offer small group tours.

The Difference a Small Group Makes to you:

More Personal Attention from your driver-guide
With a smaller group, our driver-guides have time to get to know you, explore your questions in detail and share their experiences with you.

Space to spread out on the coach
Our small group tours use 35 seater coaches but only sell 26 spaces, giving spare seats for you to spread out.

Breeze through hotel check-ins
Checking in & out at your hotels is much faster and much more enjoyable in a small party

More Personal Experience at each attraction
In a small group tour each attraction can offer you a more personal experience, with more time to ask questions and see what interests you. Experience each attraction up close and personal.

Relaxing pace
No one enjoys being part of a herd, especially not on holiday. Our policy of smaller numbers make all the logistic simple and relaxing, with no rushing and no waiting around for large groups to assemble.

These are but a few of the benefits it brings to you, with everything from meal times to photo stops being far more pleasurable, relaxing and easier with your small party of fellow travellers.

The secret of creating Top Rated Tours of Ireland

Our core ethos of Small Group Tours Only is one of the key reasons we are continually given top ratings by our past guests (currently 4.9 / 5). The small numbers mean we can really deliver the best in service and attention throughout your whole experience, and we encourage you to see what our past guests have written about us and how the small group ethos has created tours that stand out far above the crowd.

The General Post Office

The General Post Office of Ireland The General Post Office of Ireland

The General Post Office of Ireland had many homes before finally settling on its current location of O'Connell Street, on January 6th 1818. It is most famous for housing the Irish Rebels during the Easter Rising of 1916.

The building was destroyed by fire during the uprising and was left unattended until the Irish Free State government set about restoring it. The General Post Office now acts as a visitor centre and sheds an amazing light on some of Ireland's darkest days and the country it was to become.
